I get a lot of joy from teaching others traditional art skills so they can express and convey anything they desire with ease. However, learning art has so much to do with practice, so I consider the job of inspiring others to be just as essential as imparting knowledge on to the student. Staying inspired can help us return to practice, and enjoy the process of learning more, especially when it won't turn out the way we expect until much later.
Any artist will tell you that it isn't inspiration alone that keeps them working. It is called an art practice, because it TAKES practice to create. But until that artistic habit is deeply ingrained, staying inspired helps a lot!
I teach undergraduate classes in drawing and painting, as well as workshops for children, high school students and adults.
I have taught gouache, art-journaling, acrylic, and watercolor workshops, Skillshare classes, as well as YouTube tutorials. I hope you will consider joining my YouTube art community by subscribing to my channel, or try out Skillshare. It is a wonderful learning platform FULL of all types of creative classes.
