Final Classes

This last term of 2019 sees the conclusion of my classes and workshops. I am taking a break although how short or long this will be, and if I return to teaching at all I can’t say at this time.

I’ve been teaching since 2016 and have enjoyed it immensly, especially seeing the confidence of participants growing from an attitude of “It’s too hard…” to “I can do this!” But as much as I enjoy teaching, I feel that my own arts practice needs more attention and so it’s time to refocus, re-energize and renew where I want to go and what I want to do.

Thank you for sharing and creating so many wonderful memories with me and allowing me to guide you along your own artistic journey!
