Classes & Workshops

I'm available to teach a variety of classes & workshops in sketching, lettering, watercolor, and/or nature journaling. Classes are very affordable and can be structured to fit almost any subject, schedule, or age, and can even be tailored for school-age, credit-based programs. A few examples of past workshops are listed below. To discuss the arrangement of a class or workshop, please contact me.

If you live in the North Carolina High Country area, I also host a nature sketching group. You can find out more about High Country Nature Sketchers meetings and membership here.
