My goal is to encourage each student to awaken their own particular and personal form of expression. Everyone is
different and we must respect each individual’s expression of beauty.
My first objective is to see the student get a basic understanding of how to use the tools of art. This means mixing and
applying paint; selecting and using brushes; exploring all materials an artist uses: charcoal, pencils, papers, canvas,
watercolors, pastels, acrylic paint and oil paint.
I do not teach a particular style or type of art (such as realism, abstraction, oriental style) I certainly do not teach my
style of painting; but I hope that each student discovers their own style. Each class is spent encouraging student to
explore and find their own creative genius and their own method of self expression.
