What kind of teaching approach can you expect? Why choose Nancy for your teaching needs?

Nancy's Teaching Approach: 
Follow your instincts. Break all the rules. Have fun!

• Nancy believes anyone can create art with the right encouragement!
• She loves thinking outside the box and challenges her students to do the same!
• She makes a point of getting to know her students so that she can tailor her classes or private lessons to their specific needs and preferences.
• Nancy is especially interested in working with seniors but enjoys working with people of all ages. 
• Group classes or individual sessions can occur at home, school, work, retirement residence, community centre, etc. 

Skill level is not Nancy's primary concern or focus. Rather she encourages her students to step away from the traditional approach they may be used to and instead inspires them to strike their own path and create their own unique style. 

If you would like Nancy to bring her art classes to your facility, or if you are interested in one-on-one sessions, please contact Nancy to discuss.
