Teaching After School Art Classes

I just completed teaching four afterschool art classes for the Lansing Art Gallery. The kids and I had a blast--it was a wild and wooly experience--making simple books and exploring Zentangle. Many thanks to Lansing Art Gallery for doing so much to support art and creativity in the Lansing Public Schools this year!
