Wham! Bam!

This was my last week of the second round of the “Zip Zap Zoom!” run by Private Picassos at Book Culture on the Upper West Side. It was also my second to last time teaching this class. Next week I will be training my replacement as I am moving down to Washington DC very soon,…

Let’s Recycle!

This was a 3 week recycled arts course, and my last 3 classes at P.S. 154. I will really miss this groups of children and this wonderful school community! However life and work are transplanting me in Washington D.C. for a summer of art at Glen Echo Park. We began our first class with a…

Final Show/ Open Studio

The show was absolutely amazing. I was so happy to see each student showing of there artwork to their parents. I think the students also had a good time re-arranging the room and writing up the descriptions of each lesson. They took the whole show very seriously and I couldn’t be happier with the result!

Modern Fish
