Katherine teaches and mentors in these visual arts media:
          •  Drawing in achromatic and color media:  graphite, color pencil, Sumi-e, ink, and watercolor.
          •  Silk-paper-fusion techniques and process.
          •  Monoprinting on fabric.
          •  Design Fundamentals:  the Design Element and Principle Relationships — including color theory in any visual arts medium.
          •  A universal Design Process to create textile, fiber, fabric or embroidery works from students’ own drawings.
          •  Portions of the Design Process in relation to other media, i.e.,  painting & sculpture, including working from photographs.
          •  Art Assessment Process:    students & artists are empowered to “critique” their own work and works-in-progress, using an intuitive, positive Process.   When all you need are recommendations about your works-in-progress, completed works, or for matting, framing and presentation — simply schedule a session for several of your works, or with several artists and their works.    Assessing and discovering harmony or disharmony — and balance or imbalance — in a complete work or in a work-in-progress — leads to artists’ and students’ mindful assessment while they create in their own studios and workplaces.

          Katherine's extensive educator training in student learning styles equips her in understanding whether and how much each student is an intuitive-right-brain learner or a logical-left-brain learner.   She guides intuitive learners to discover the power of learning logical skills to enhance creativity and success of their artworks;  and, she guides logical learners to discover the power of learning intuitive skills to enhance creativity and success.

          You are not alone in your search for creative inspiration and techniques.
          When you are here your personalized art experiences will awaken your senses and help you on your way to achieve your artistic goals.
          Katherine works with students ages 8 to 80+, novice to professional, individually or in small groups, guiding students’ learning in relation to their own artistic or other goals.
          Every art process will be filled with Aha! moments you will take to heart and take home.
