For over 35 years, I have been a teaching artist in public and private schools including
residencies for Young Audiences and The Right Brain Initiative, Salem Art Association,
Corvallis Art Association, Oregon Potters Association as well as contracting independently.
My years of experience as a certificated art teacher from elementary through community
college level have helped me develop a wide variety of lessons and media, however,
clay is my specialty. All residencies are taught discipline based, integrated into
the curriculum, and include aesthetics, art criticism, historical/cultural connections,
art vocabulary, hands-on production, evaluation and aesthetic scanning.
