I am available to teach private or semi private classes.
I recently co-authored and illustrated the book Never Long Enough: Finding Hope and Comfort Amidst Grief and Loss. I and my co-author, Rabbi Joseph Krakoff are available to give talks on grief, loss and coping.
I have taught classes for the past 34 years in the following mediums; watercolor, drawing, acrylic painting, pastel, glass mosaic and mixed media. I am skilled in teaching all age groups from children and adolescents to adults. Subjects have included; introduction to art, intermediate painting and drawing, advanced painting and drawing, figure drawing, figure sculpture, animal drawing, still life, perspective, composition, color, glass mosaic, art literacy, landscape in watercolor, pastel and acrylic and polymer clay.
I taught High School art at the Frankel Jewish Academy of Metropolitan Detroit from 2004- 2016. My psychology background has served me well in the classroom setting. I have developed a number of different techniques for motivating students to reach their potential. High standards for quality in my classroom are achieved in part due to good rapport with my students and clear and concise instruction. I enjoy teaching and my students seem to enjoy participating in my classes and projects.
