I was a costume designer and used to love helping backstage with the child cast members in shows. After speaking to school groups about costume and make-up design, I realized how much I enjoyed being with kids and doing art, and teaching art lets me combine both.
I like to share specific skills and techniques with students and then step back and see where they take them. Creating and appreciating art are learned skills, and anyone can learn provided the proper supports. I create a structured and supportive space where creativity can flourish.
