Teaching Approach

I began teaching workshops in 2003 at the Spruill Arts Center in Dunwoody.  With a full time corporate job, I only teach Saturday workshops at the present time.  I incorporate the structure and organization from the business world in my approach to teaching by providing detailed written steps and examples.  I individualize instruction and coach students to develop their own style.  By using a structured training approach from the corporate world, students acquire the skills to express themselves by creating original artwork.  See Student Gallery for examples.

(Note that some artwork was not finished by the end of class.)
