“Creating art can be a great confidence booster for kids, I love when students think a project or technique looks too hard but after breaking it down into easy steps, they leave class with artwork they are so proud of. I also really enjoy teaching adult students who might be intimidated by drawing but they fall in love with the creative, experimental process involved in mixed media.”
