Beth holds a M.S. in Art Education, K – 12 and has 38 years teaching experience in grades pre-K, elementary, middle school, high school and junior college.
Art has always been a big part of life. My elementary school teachers would tell my parents they thought I would be a future artist. My high school art teacher wanted me to accept a scholarship to the Fort Lauderdale Art Institute but my parents thought I was too young. During college I volunteered at an Orlando elementary school for two and a half years offering the students art lessons. I also was an art teacher substitute teacher for an elementary school in Seminole county. Other areas of my life involving my creative side include: designing a convention program cover and meal ticket booklets for a national sorority with attendance of over 1,000, designed and painted photo props and center pieces for a local non-profit organization for four years, and painted a small mural for a business.
I have taught art classes for all ages from toddlers to later life seniors. I have had small classes and classes of up to 30 students. I have taught in craft stores, private homes, a few non-profit organizations, and at South Lake Art League.
I have always had a passion to share art with everyone – which lead me to my latest endeavor of becoming a certified Zentangle Teacher (CZT). Zentangle is a process that everyone can learn – One Stroke at a Time.
