Art Lesson+ Resume

I am an artist and graphic designer. I moved to the Tri-Cities at the end of the summer after teaching art and English in Brazil for two months.

I spent the last two years teaching private lessons and teaching classes (art, yoga, blogging, language, etc.) to adults and youth with disabilities at the Cooper Center for Creative Arts.

I have a wide range of topics and levels that I can teach. I am especially interested in guided art exploration and cultural and travel inspired art. I love teaching book making, upcycling, watercolor, and drawing as well.

Please contact me if you or someone you know is interested in art lessons.
