Faculty Information:
In the past decade I have had the opportunity to interact with teachers and students from elementary to college level.... actually through senior citizens! Mosaics can be interesting and adapted to every age and skill level. It is always a pleasure to speak with a group and educate them about the different styles and techniques of creating mosaics, as well as sharing a slide presentation on my tour of Italy and the different schools of mosaic. I am also available to give presentations on educating artists on the business of art, teaching skills which are as important as the creative side of their life to becoming a successful working artist. It is always an honour to work with students and teachers throughout the United States on group projects!
