I'm very proud and excited to be returning to teach for the Ridgewood Community School. This is my 6th semester teaching at RCS and it will be my 2nd semester teaching virtually as a result of covid. I put a lot of thought into how to best teach a virtual class with subjects as tactile as drawing and painting. Always taking student feedback into consideration, I am very confident with the quality and breadth of my virtual courses.
For spring 2021, I will be teaching Drawing for Beginners, Watercolor for Beginners and Watercolor for Beginners II. The courses are each designed for a different experience level of student. *I will be covering the drawing course this semester because the regular teacher is unable to teach it this semester.
Drawing for Beginners will cover the essentials of drawing. Drawing is one of the oldest and purest forms of art making and is a great way to explore the world around you as well as yourself. Drawing materials and techniques will be covered, demonstrated and explained.
Watercolor for Beginners is designed for novices or anyone without previous experience and will primarily revolve around introductory methods, materials, color mixing, brush handling and essential techniques.
Watercolor for Beginners II is more advanced and will delve into more advanced techniques, other aqueous materials (including gouache), color theory, composition and ways of seeing.
The Community School also has many other great courses from languages to cooking and many other subjects. Another bonus of these classes is that they provide some social relief during this lonely pandemic; so if you're feeling isolated, then I would encourage you to join a course. I look forward to seeing my students soon.

I'll toot my own horn a little bit by sharing some of the feedback from students I've been honored to receive:
