I have taught art in Pacifica for the past 15 years. My emphasis has been with ceramic and mosaic art but I have taught painting, printmaking and much more. The fourteen mosaic panels depicting at Ocean Shore School began with research into the environments in different oceanic zones. Then the students created clay animals and plants found in those areas. Those animals and plants were incorporated into a mosaic design. I thoroughly enjoy watching the creativity surface from each individual. I always learn more than I can teach.
