Michelle's Art Pad developed out of my love of encouraging others to create art. I am a self taught artist, who started teaching art in a homeschool co-op in 2001. My teaching style incorporates art appreciation, technique, creation and fun into a class where everyone can succeed regardless of their preconceived notions of how good, or not, they think they are. First and foremost I am an encourager of the art process. I work with each participant to help draw out the best work they can for each project. I encourage fun in class, not unruliness, and all the while teach the class about the Masters from the past and present. Yearly themes from the past have included Study of the Masters, EPIC Art Curriculum (learning about the Elements of Art), Art from Around the World and Art through the Ages.
