Art making is a healing practice for me and for so many of my students. I want to make sure that I can make this experience accessible to folks who have not been centered in creative spaces due to their race, sexuality or gender identity, or folks who could not financially afford to take my classes.
Social justice matters to me a lot. My first job was in human rights, and then I worked as a therapist with folks in the Latinx community and with teens, including folks in the LGBTQIA community.
I’m a work in progress, striving always to learn more about how to be a giving person on this planet. In my work, I try to give back, through my free Slow Drawing sessions, offering classes in a range of prices, and giving a portion of my earnings to social justice causes. Another way I’d like to give back is by offering scholarships.
If you’d like to take one of my classes, but money is really tight, please fill out the scholarship application below. Priority will be given to members of the BIPOC, LGBTQIA communities and those experiencing extreme financial hardship.
