I am so excited to be back teaching in my home town of San Diego, California. Class will take place at Art on 30th, an amazing gallery, studio and workshop space in North Park.  Please join me for a fun day of play, drawing, painting and simple journal making. Make art while being inspired by the gallery and creative space.
