Class Description

I have been teaching art for 25 years in the Des Moines School District, 13 of those years have been at Capitol View.  I have enjoyed every minute.  I am passionate about  teaching children how to create beautiful works of art that they can keep forever, I hope.   I graduated from Buena Vista College  in Storm Lake, Iowa. After spending the summer at a girl scout camp in Vermont I decided my destiny was to teach art so I came back to Iowa and got my teaching certificate from UNI.  I have been in Des Moines ever since.   In my free time I  enjoy walking, making glass beads in my garage for jewelry and traveling as much as possible.
