Hi, I'm Sam! Creating is a journey. While learning basic skills is important, the process of making is much more important than the finished project.
Experiencing hands on drawing, painting and other art activities is fulfilling and enlightening. Being in the moment and enjoying your own creative process is the most important thing to get out of an art lesson.
I love being an art teacher and sharing the joy of creating and making things with all my students.
Everyone needs art in their lives. Each individual and can be enlightened by practicing their creativity and stretching their imagination.
I have been teaching art to kids and adults for more than 10 years. I previously taught in the public schools and in several community locations. I currently teach private lessons out of my dedicated art studio.
I earned my MS in Art and Graphic Communication from Eastern Washington University and my BA in Visual Art from the University of Washington.
I live with my husband, two kids and a dog named Rango in Washington. When I am not teaching art I like to read, travel and hike.
