Where I teach:

I teach at the Arizona-Sonoran Desert Museum's Art Institute and in my art studio in Tucson, AZ and weekly at a local shelter for women who are experiencing homelessness. Occasionally I teach in Missoula, MT and Monterey, CA. I don't have group classes in the summer, but do teach individual students.

What is Zentangle? (Summer/Fall) This 5 hours class is a relaxed "Introduction to Zentangle Basics: Level I" with some added perks- more personal attention, extra tangles and surprises.

Zentangle on Desert Gourds (November 1 & 2, 2019) Locally grown gourds are a lovely surface for drawing "tangles" (patterns) in black, brown, red, and white inks. Come learn about selecting and preparing gourds as well as techniques for working on their surface.  (Perquisite: Some experience drawing Zentangle patterns on paper.)

ABRACADABRA! (November 9 & 10, 2019) Simple backgrounds for journals, pen & inks, collages, clay boards, notecards…There are lots of interesting, simple, and FUN ways to work “behind the scenes” other than with watercolor.  This two day class includes hands-on exploration AND a day for creating projects with stains, marbling, printing and inventing new techniques.
