I enjoy teaching children and adults who like to be inspired by new adventures such as painting. I am a very prolific painter, and I don't like to limit myself to just one subject. I paint what I feel and what feels right at the moment. When a child or adult creates a painting I enjoy watching their expressions of amazement and excitement regarding their accomplishments.
I also teach card making, and iphone photography. I feel that children need to be in a well-rounded environment to learn as much as possible of all forms of art. I have won many awards with my art, and many of my paintings are held in private collections, as well as have been exhibited in galleries in the US and Europe.

Someone ask me to teach their child to paint, and I found it quite enjoyable.
I have worked with children from ages 5 - 12, as well as with adults.
A retired high school principal said that she would love to paint, but feels that she had no talent. I dared her to come to a class and she created a wonderful simple landscape with the necessary coaching that she was so extrememly proud of. On her way home she stopped to by a frame and her husband wanted to know if she had bought it. When she told him that she painted it herself, he called me to verify. The happiness she felt to be able to do this, was so delightful.
Make sure the teacher also has a good sense of humor. Painting should be fun and relaxing, and a enjoyable learning experience.
