BFA and MFA degrees. I have been teaching drawing for over 20 years. My students vary from those who seek to become great artists, to those who need to use drawing to develop their ideas and creativity for other fields such as science, architecture, engineering, etc.

Want to draw your best friend, lifetime pet, or a flower you might have come across on a recent walk? Or, do you just wish you could record your memories and dreams? Well, as it happens, you can.
Drawing with me will empower you with a basic understanding of shape, movement, line quality, light and shadows, composition, perspective, critical thinking, and best of all, the confidence to draw anything.
My approach to teaching art is influenced by my teachers from grade school through college as well as Betty Edwards' Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain and Mona Brookes' Drawing with Children: A Creative Method for Adult Beginners, Too.

Looking to merge art and growth? I have been teaching emotional intelligence (aka EQ) classes all over Alberta and BC for the last 3 years from ages 5 - 95. There are lots of painting classes out there, but very few about healing through art.
What is Emotional Intelligence? EQ is an umbrella term for how we relate to ourselves and to others. Self awareness, self management, social awareness and relationship management are key factors to having a high EQ.
Even though these skills are crucial in any community or society, we are often never taught these concepts. Why? Because emotions are greatly understudied. Emotions are messy. They are unpredictable. They hinder left brain thinking that Western culture prides itself on. However, without these vitally important competencies, we are left wondering why we didn't get that job, why we are fighting with loved ones, why we seemingly can't stick to our work out plans and why our world is in a very critical state
Welcome! thanks for taking a moment to scroll. I have taught classes all around Alberta and BC and I teach traditional drawing and painting. Currently, I am most excited to teach 'painting With Purpose: Emotional intelligence Through Art' classes. They are a series of three classes called Connect W

After spending most of my childhood dreaming about becoming an artist, I grew up, went to school, got married, had babies, and became a...(drumroll)...nurse. While nursing was fulfilling in many ways, a part of me always felt that there was something else that I should be doing. The feeling that I'
