We make art to wake up ourselves, our colleagues, the world. As rigorous as any inner-oriented discipline, visual art reflects the maker’s life philosophy, personal temperament, and aspirations.

Teaching is the job of leading students to make connections, between their life stories and the greater world, to guide their research in both learning physical processes and mining their personal experiences.

As a teacher I aim for several fits: the match of medium to the individual’s skills, temperament, and goals; integrating material and message; understanding one’s nature and place on the continuum between spontaneity and control; and the balance between the intuitive impulse and its physical manifestation.

My class plans are structured to provide the framework necessary to acquiring technical skills and tools that allow students to experiment with confidence. I also emphasize the need to articulate one’s intentions through written exercises.

Place: Mixit Print Studio, 32 Clifton Street, Somerville, MA
Cost: $400
