I have been a teacher for most of my adult life, primarily with young children, but have some experience with all ages. Art has been a hobby for me since childhood, and when I retired from full time work, I chose to spend my retirement years learning and teaching Art. During the years when I taught preschool and the early elementary grades, I always included as much Art as I could wherever I could. I do see the teaching of Art as my calling, and the thrust of my life is to get better and better at it. Most recently, I taught Art for Charlottesville Parks and Recreation, until the pandemic caused us to stop our classes. Now my new “classroom” is Zoom!
