Why take Art with an Artist?
The best teachers I ever had were artists themselves. In fact the Corcoran School of Art required teachers be
working artists. But I had artist-teachers from 1st grade on. Their approach is not the same as just an art educator,
it is born out of the process of making art, going through the art education process and yes, even making the
mistakes along the way. Take advantage of my 18 years of teaching, & 50-some years as an art student & artist!
"I looked at what the other Art classes were doing and thought this is no where near what my daughter
was bringing home from Lisa's classes. My daughter was doing real Art, these other classes just offered art activities
the children could have done on their own."
"When I got to college, I was completely prepared for everything they were teaching, in fact I had done most
of it before"
"You are the most influential artist I have known. I thought of all you had taught me even as I completed my
degree in digital arts."
"My son (7 years old at the time) attended art classes provided by Lisa. She did a wonderful job working with my
son who is an odd combination of being a very intelligent boy, but also one who has sensory integration dysfunction
(which affects his behavior). Lisa's instruction not only provided a basis for new skills in various forms of
art, but also helped him mature and develop teamwork and interpersonal skills."
