I am pleased to announce that I will be teaching at two major Canadian venues this spring and summer: The ICAN Pastel Conference in Aurora, ON, where I will do several sessions presenting a variety of subjects in the pastel medium. See www.pastelartists.ca for more information.

Several sessions in assorted media are also scheduled at the St. Lawrence College in Kingston, ON (1000 Islands Summer School of the Arts) at the end of June/beginning of July. See www.stlawrencecollage.ca for more information.

Both these opportunities are a great way to combine some summer travelling and art instruction.
