Scenes from teaching Adult pottery at Potters Place.  I’ve been lucky to have had two groups of fantastic students this past session.  Here is a glimpse at some of the amazing work they have created both on the potters wheel and by hand.

My 14 week class of 12 young students has come to an end.  I’ll miss these students and the wonderful creative play they experienced with clay. Here is a look at some of their artwork:

This Saturday, March 12th from 10am-2pm, the Westwood Recreation Department will host “March into Summer” (10% off registration fees when you sign up for summer classes March 12-15).  I will be hanging out with other teachers and students talking up my summer classes: 2D and 3D Art in July. Wegmans is sponsoring this event.

3D Art ~ explore three dimensions while learning about carving, modeling and sculpture using recycled products, mixed media, clay and more. July 11-14.

2D Art ~ explore the mark on a flat surface while learning about graphite, colored pencils, watercolor and more. July 18-21

I’m thankful to the Westwood Recreation Department for providing a place where I can teach children to express themselves through creative means.
