Classes

I have created and facilitated art related programs for students aged two to adult in museums, non-profit organizations, traditional schools, and as a private tutor for groups and individuals for nearly 15 years. The pandemic has necessitated creative solutions for education and I’ve had the great honor to create virtual learning programs for Pennsylvania Public Libraries and the Carnegie Museum of Art. I am also so grateful to offer Art @ Home virtual programs from my home studio through Zoom since the fall of 2020.
