I started at the LUX as an Artist-in-residence in August, 2014. So far I have taught 2 figure drawing courses, one en plein air course and a drawing sampler class. All courses were 6 weeks long and were held in the evening for high school and adults. I have really enjoyed being part of the art community the surrounds the LUX! Thank you for all of your support and working with me as I struggled to find a balance of working full time and art practice routine after grad school.
