Exciting News for the 2013-14 Academic Year!

Right-Brained Studio Mobile!

Right-Brained Studio will be taking its mobile art classes to the Pacific Northwest and West coast regions starting in September! I’ll be back in Chicago between projects and therefore available to set up short-term workshops and private lessons in the area during those times.
Besides teaching classes and personal art projects on the west coast, plans are in the works for a RV Mobile Art Studio! The goal is to bring fun, innovative art and art education to youth artists in mid and small-sized towns as well as to areas that are lacking these programs. Right-Brained Studio will begin a Kickstarter campaign to help launch the project by summer 2014.

In the meantime, if you have any friends/family out west, please pass along my contact information. Any referrals are greatly appreciated.

My sincerest gratitude to everyone who has been part of the Right-Brained Studio community over the past 6 years and for all that have been enrolled in my classes since I began mentoring youth artists in 1995. I truly appreciate your support and flexibility through the changes and growth of Right-Brained Studio.

Chicago Availability: December 2nd 2013 – January 10th 2014

Please contact me if you would like to set up a workshop during this time.
