Maybe it's been so long since you've drawn that you feel like you can't.

My Basic Drawing and Watercolor workshop was created in 1997 for guests at the Kiawah Island Resort in South Carolina. Since then I've taught the workshop, and classes and lessons that emerged from that workshop for private groups, organizations and, with return engagements, at the Guilford Art Center and Farmington Valley Art Center in Connecticut, Gulf Coast Museum of Art in Largo, Florida, San Luis Obispo Art Center in California, Cheekwood Museum and University School of Nashville in Tennessee, National Audubon sites, National Historic sites, Elderhostels, and private schools. I've served as juror in the Drawing and Printmaking categories for the Scholastic Art Competition and Directed the nonprofit community outreach program for Drawing America.
