Welcome Future Art Students!

I am thrilled that you will be taking the plunge by enrolling in a Fine and Performing Arts class!  I am eager to meet you, introduce you to the world of visual art, and to see your skills and creativity develop.

I am an artist myself and also face the challenges of creating my own work and refining skills. Creating is always an ongoing learning process.  I hold a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Sculpture) from Boston University, and a Masters of Teaching from the Massachusetts College of Art.  Teaching young artists for the past 20+ years (I have lost count) has been a joy for me, and I hope to pass on to you the love of visual expression.   

My goal is to help you feel comfortable with developing your own creative voice, learn artistic technique and skills, and to tackle creative problem solving.  I look forward to maintaining a positive and supportive environment in the classroom.  You will be introduced to art history, art criticism, studio based technique and skill learning, and aesthetics.  If you allow yourself to stay open minded and positive, you will be amazed at how you will develop artistically in our studio classrooms!  

Check out my class pages and home page for information, check into google classroom for assignments and due dates, and of course, I am always happy to answer questions or provide help.
