Since I'm teaching a lot of classes this summer for kids, I thought it would be helpful to list them all in one place. So, this is a comprehensive view of my summer! (click on each place to find out how to register)

We will walk to the Museum of Natural Sciences to study bird specimens and learn more about our feathered friends.
Artspace- July 17-21 Book Arts: Sketchbook Explorations. ages 11-16. An artist’s sketchbook represents a place of freedom from judgement, a place that ideas are born. We will construct our own Coptic style sketchbook, either creating our own book covers or recycling old book covers.
