Doing art with children is nothing but a combination of my two loves, teaching and artwork. The child’s face after they have completed a work of art is priceless. After we throw summer break in the mix, we have a winning combination. The kids have a blast during summer art camp, and I have a blast creating artwork alongside them. By drawing and painting in each activity, we will explore creating art on different materials. We will have fun while learning.
Please come join our art camp, the kids will love it!!! With the parents’ and child’s consent, I may finish the week off with some face painting. Can’t wait!!

Hello, friends. I’m Tommy, mother of one wild boy, the love of my life. I began my pottery adventure at ATU, where I graduated with a BA in Fine Arts with an emphasis in ceramics in 2004. I’ve always enjoyed any and all art mediums, but making functional ware is my favorite. I’m excited to be teaching classes for RVAC and cannot wait to see all the amazing work that is created!
