Welcome to The Drawing Connection!
I am a self-taught artist, a teacher, a wife, and a mom. I am a firm believer that everyone can learn to draw and that art enriches the lives of people of all ages. I have dedicated many years to sharing my love for art with others and find it very fulfilling to watch my students learn and grow.
I have been thinking for a while about how to help others and leverage my passion and skills. My mission in launching The Drawing Connection is to develop an online community that teaches the joys of drawing and creating art to those who might not otherwise have access.
For 12 years, I taught art classes to children age 5 to adult at ActonArt, a wonderful private fine arts school in Acton, MA. As an art teacher, I leverage my artistic skills, patience, compassion and enthusiasm in every class I teach.
Each person has different skills and unique learning styles. I hope to spark creativity, foster learning, and inspire YOU to start drawing! Art should be fun. It does not need to be perfect. We learn and grow from our mistakes.
Feel free to email me if you have any questions. Please also consider sending me a photo of your artwork from one of our classes so I can include you in our gallery. If you would like, include your first name and your age so I can give you recognition for your artwork creation.
I hope you enjoy my classes as much as I enjoy teaching them!
