40 plus years of experience in Art, including teaching printmaking to the public. Also experience in Digital and Manual Photography (including development in a darkroom), Web design, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Dreamweaver, Html, Printmaking, Computer Graphics, Sculpture, Drawing, Painting, and Pottery. I have had experience teaching computer basics and intermediate Word Processing, Spreadsheets, Database including: Word, Excel, Access, Wordperfect, Lotus 123 and other programs.
My way of teaching is to start with simple assignments and then build the students confidence in their ability to succeed at any program they choose to learn. The sky is the limit! No experience necessary for the students! Come as you are. Relax in peaceful surroundings, and learn whatever subject you are interested in.
Old clothing, coveralls or an apron may be worn for Printmaking, Sculpture, Drawing, Painting, or Pottery classes. It is advisable to obtain a flashdrive(usb)for computer classes to be able to complete and save homework assignments either at the class location or at most public libraries, but it is not required. Folders will be created for all students to save to.
Thank you for your consideration of me as your future tutor!

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
