My B.S. degree, 50 years of teaching in different settings and 6 year study of leadership skills allow me to relate to people in a positive way. (settings include public & private school, adult ed at HACC, homeschool groups, Jen's Pottery Den as a pottery instructor and my own private classes.). The advantages of my teaching include: flexible scheduling; catering to the student's personal goals, skill level and interests. The private studio setting eliminates a student's fear of competition, of sharing ideas and judgement.
I enjoy teaching because I love seeing that "light bulb" go off when a student has grasped a concept. I get motivated from being around people with a common interest. Teaching is a fulfilling part of my life; watching a student progress and acheive success is a big part of my life. I've also received 2 art awards and taken addition courses to improve my skills.
Donna has made me so comfortable. I love learning with her.
Donna had just about everything you can imagine...supplies ,knowledge and most important, caring about you...thanks for the many years
Very friendly and informative. Meets students where they are and teaches what they need.
Really enjoyed it.

My aunt is an artist and she was coaching me since I was 5 years old. I also wanted to. become an art teacher (according to my 6th grade autobiography). I tutored some under priviledged children as a college project and got bitten by the teaching bug.

I have a yearly art show for students. It's a thrill to watch them point out their work to family and friends. I've also taken groups to Philadelphia and Brandywine museums where we had awesome experiences.
Are they interested in me and my art?
Are they a good teacher?
Can the teacher help me?
Will I learn in a comfortable atmosphere?
Will I like the teacher and will he/ she like me?
What do lessons cost?
Am I willing to take suggestions and "coaching" ?
