Greetings! The beginning of the New Year, has been a productive one for many of us over the last couple of weeks. While I’ve been on a short break from teaching after school kid’s art, it is still full of planning and prepping for the upcoming winter art classes that begin on the 25th of January. I’ve got some exciting projects for the kids 3/D Art Sculpture classes and Art I classes at local elementary schools with BAAY EduArts.
