Upcoming fall term

Really Sayin' Somethin'I’ve received a few emails from parents asking my plans for the fall term in regards to the New Art Center. Unfortunately, I am no longer with the NAC (read more here). I realizeĀ  the center is still hosting classes I formerly taught, some I created myself. I wish the upcoming instructors nothing, but the best! That’s not to say I’m done with teaching. I’ll be announcing a list of classes at the Brookline Arts Center in the near future. Thank you for all your continued support and I hope to see you in the fall. Meanwhile, enjoy the rest of summer!

Saying goodbye is hard to do

Getting excited in the middle of a ceramic lesson!

Saying goodbye is never easy to do, not when you’ve shared such success with amazing students, both talented, lively, and eager to learn. But, unfortunately, weeks ago I notified the education department of the New Art Center that I would be leaving the NAC at the end of the current term. I’ve needed a change for a few months and I think focusing more on my art and social work is where my heart lies. I still plan on teaching a class or two open to the public in the future, but possibly closer to my home in Boston. I cannot thank enough the wonderful support youth, adults, and families have shown me as both an educator and teen program coordinator. I’m also grateful to the center for allowing me to teach so many fun art-related courses this past year. It’s been a blast!

Upcoming classes opening in March and April!

It’s been a VERY successful winter semester at the Worcester Art Museum with lots of laughs and amazing creativity. After a brief respite I’ll be back March 24th to start anew with two new weekend classes. Check ’em out!

Drawing and Painting, 5-7 years old

Enjoy looking at paintings in the Museum. Then, have fun learning about color, texture and line while you create your own drawings and paintings with tempera paints, oil pastels, watercolors and much more!

Express Yourself!, 8-10 years old

Get inspired in the Museum and let loose your creativity. Experiment in sculpture, printmaking, paint and other materials to develop fun, colorful and experimental projects.

 And in other news —

I’ve just signed on to teach a class for 3rd-5th graders starting in April at the New Art Center in Newton, MA!

Architects Building Studio

 Bring your ideas to life in this fun class that moves from 2D into 3D. Using architecture and the built environment as our theme, students will develop their ideas in drawings, and then use their drawings as a basis for creating 3D models and sculptures.  If you can imagine a world underwater, or a city of tree houses, this class is for you!
