I have numerous personal experiences working with different age groups, ranging from elementary to high school age children. These include involvement in youth ministry outreach to areas of lower socio-economic areas of our country. This participation involved a leadership position as I planned, designed, and implemented aspects of outreach in the Detroit area, Milwaukee area, as well as in Appalachia. This work was associated with Catholic Youth Ministry.

In addition, I have taught workshops involving artistic creation of individual works with children in elementary school, and middle school. These workshops included the use of found objects, and the creation of a three dimensional sculpture. In addition, most recently in Arkadelphia, I provided a workshop on positive and negative space with a classroom of seventh and eighth graders. This workshop included a lecture and presentation using my personal art as a visual to describe aspects of color with positive and negative space.
In conclusion, I am hard-working, confident and conscientious and have a strong desire to show children of all ages that they too can be creative.
