I've been teaching ceramics for close to 20 years. I enjoy sharing my creative space with like-minded people and those new to ceramic art. My approach is, don't take it all so seriously. Each student should learn at their own pace and enjoy the process. Everyone has an artist within them and given the opportunity, they will find what makes them passionate.
