What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I offer beginning drawing and painting classes at the gallery. I ask a lot of questions to understand what the student wants to accomplish and what artistic experience they have. I like to incorporate technical lessons within an area that they would like to explore. It should be a fun process, not a painful one:-) 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I was a fine art major at the University of South Florida. Although after college I worked in mainstream business, I always produced art "on the side" or taught classes. I especially like working with older adults who finally have the time to relax into a new passion.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Private lessons are $65 for 2 hours.

Classes of 4 to 6 people $20 per hour.

Workshops vary

How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching at country clubs, community centers and assisted living facilities in South Florida.

What types of students have you worked with?

Teens, adults and elderly. Some of my experience comes from working in hospitals "Arts and Healing" programs.
