Log Cabin Art
I have been teaching art for 35 years, loving every minute of it!! Starting in 1983, I began teaching art in the Challenge Program with JC Schools, which was a government grant position. I developed a screening system to identify visually gifted students in each school, and they were bused to me at the materials center. I loved that students were recognized for their artistic ability and given an opportunity to advance in it. When that grant ran out I taught after school enrichment art classes for the JC School system for many years. In 1993 I began teaching art in Carroll Reece Museum on ETSU campus in their after school art program, Artsploration. I taught there for 13 years until we lost our space due to renovations, when I began teaching out of my church, FUMC. Several years, and stints at Tri-Cities Christian, homeschool associatons, Valley Forge visiting artist, Early Learning Center, and many more opportunities later, I started teaching out of my family’s former home, the Log Cabin on Unaka! So, here I am-still loving teaching art to wonderful, creative, exuberant, children, as well as adults, and hosting art parties for both!
