Group Classes

Education is very much a part of what I do. I teach primarily cartooning and watercolor classes to people of all ages, from kids to adults.

"I've taught cartooning to gifted and talented classes in the Des Moines school system as well as surrounding suburbs, summer school programs in Des Moines and West Des Moines, plus various community organizations. In my cartooning classes, I show how to quickly draw simple, fun and easy cartoons. I always include such fun interactive drawing games as the delightful "Doodle Challenge" and “The Name Game”.

In my watercolor classes I show students how to work from photos using the “grid system”, which is a rather simple way to accurately draw the photo images."

Here are just some of the venues where I've taught people of all ages:

  • Des Moines Public Schools
  • Metro Arts
  • Parks and Rec Departments (including Des Moines, Ankeny, Urbandale and more)
  • Link Associates
  • Orchard Place
  • 4-H
  • Girl Scouts
