Art Classes & Workshops
I love gathering in community with others and creating. The sharing of ideas, the conversation and seeing others’ work is both gratifying and inspiring. The most important part of teaching art for me is creating that safe space, the community, the support and the encouragement to express yourself. While the final product can be fulfilling, it’s the process of creating that I find most gratifying.
Join me for one of my art classes or workshops and find that supportive space and community where you can explore and create.
What Michele’s students say about her art classes:
