I love teaching people of all ages and capabilities art techniques. I have grown and developed many new artistic skills myself throughout this journey. In school settings, my curriculum focuses on investigation, resourcefulness, creative problem solving, and integrating academic subjects with an emphasis on environmental and community advocacy.
