What do I teach?

I have been teaching for over 15 years and have worked with a range of students at all levels of 2-D visual and interdisciplinary arts (drawing, painting, mixed media, printmaking, etc.) in studio and lecture formats, as well as critique-centered courses. I also created the first online art class for Stanford University’s Continuing Studies program. Some examples of classes I have designed and taught:

  • Drawing A+B=Z: The Intersection of Art & Science
  • Honors in the Arts Interdisciplinary Workshop
  • The Essence of the Matter: Abstract Drawing & Painting
  • Mixed Media, Mixed Metaphors
  • Experiments in Painting
  • Drypoint Printmaking
  • Basic Drawing & Beyond
  • Drawing as if Your Life Depended on It
