Artist and Teacher
Welcome to creativeglassdesign.com.
I love teaching art. You can experience creating a fused glass piece, a paper mache sculpture or print, or a mosaic masterpiece. My home studio is very comfortable, cozy and relaxing. The studio accommodates a maximum
of four people so you will get personalized attention.
I have a BA in Studio Art and an MA in Publications Design, and I will help guide you to create a design you will be very proud of. I teach children and adults and no experience is necessary. Call 301-385-4039 to arrange a class.

ART CLASSES CREATED FOR YOU
All classes are customized and scheduled around your availability
I offer a variety of art classes at every level. You don't need any experience to learn how to create a fused glass piece, a collage, or a mosaic. If you don't see a class you'd like to take, I can customize one for you. You can learn how to incorporate images, photos and
more into your glass art. You can create a themed paper mache sculpture or the perfect mosaic piece.
