Well, it has been a super long time since my last post...so here's an update.
I just recently finished teaching an upper level Ceramics class at Arizona State University. It was a terrific class and the semester cruised by. We focused on functional specificity.
Tuesday was my first day of class at Paradise Valley Community College. I am teaching Color Theory and Composition. It should be quite FUN!
Besides filling my hours defining my arm muscles while scraping shelves as a Studio Tech. at Mesa Arts Center- I start teaching there again next Friday. I will be teaching a Moldmaking/Slipcasting class and an Intermediate Wheelthrowing class.
Cheers to exciting new opportunites!
I am back from Hungary and recovering, organizing and preparing for upcoming life changes!
I am currently working on moving out of my studio at Arizona State University and moving into my new home studio. I will also have a studio space at the Mesa Arts Center because I was offered and accepted the year long Artist-in-Residence position.
I will also be teaching two classes at the Mesa Arts Center and one class at Arizona State University starting at the end of August- I am very anxious and super excited for these new adventures.
