I am able to help you with many of your artistic endeavors. I am a trained instructor skilled in metalsmithing/jewelry, drawing, painting, printmaking, woodworking, textiles, sculpture. I have been an artist for over 25 years, and recently earned my Master of Fine Arts degree.
I love teaching, and believe that every student has the ability to learn, grow skills, and succeed!!! Everyone can be an artist, it’s all about practice and passion. See some of my work and resume at heathersnuber.com 😊
Heather was my teacher for a metalsmithing class at Indiana University and I loved her class so much that I had a friend of mine take it the semester after me! Heather has all of the qualities of a great teacher - she plans thoughtful and engaging lessons and communicates them clearly, always willing to re-explain if needed or walk a student through a process if they are uncomfortable. Additionally, her empathy and fun nature made the classroom a joy to be in and created a community of artists from a classroom of strangers! I would highly recommend her as a teacher. Even after I finished her course she never stopped encouraging me in my art!
She is very willing to share her knowledge and experience and gives great constructive criticism as well as motivation when needed. On top of that, she has a wide variety of skills and can explain her techniques very clearly!
I have worked with a very diverse range of students of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities.
I recently taught a workshop on creative chainmaking and design at Touchstone Center for Craft. It was a wonderful experience. The students were so joyful and open to exploration. And it is set in the Laurel Mountains of Pennsylvania, so we were surrounded and inspired by natural beauty all week!
Be open to play, explore, fail, find successes or inspiration in those failures, learn, grow, and practice, practice, practice.
