It’s not necessary to travel to exotic places or pick an unusual subject
to create art that is fresh and new. Exciting art can be created almost
anywhere, and inspired by almost any subject, through overcoming the
visual prejudices we have developed that make every day things seem
invisible. In this drawing class for beginning and intermediate students,
we will emphasize observation and description of items that are
present in our own homes and our neighborhood. We will consider
issues including form and line, shading and shadows, shape and
proportion, and composition and perspective. Students will receive
individual attention in a relaxed and friendly setting. Supply list: 1 tablet drawing paper, about 8.5 inch x 11 inch; pencils of assorted hardness (between hb and 6b); 1 pencil sharpener, eraser. A $7 set-up fee is payable to the instructor at the first class.

She began teaching in community art programs in Boston in 1996, and this led her to complete a degree in Art Therapy at Lesley University.
