AFTH After-School Art Teacher & CORKS AND CREATIONS INSTRUCTOR
Sharon has had an exceptionally productive career as nationally showcased illustrator, cartoonist, muralist, painter, & weaver. With a BFA from the university of Texas, she was certified as an art teacher in Hawaii, and has taught for over 30 years. Sharon hosts painting parties in Wimberley, Texas. You can find her teaching Corks and Creations classes at AFTH Studio 201 the first Thursday of every month!
Much of Sharon’s career has been associated with the publishing and printing industry, and teaching everything she knows. Unlike many art teachers, as an experienced professional artist in the schools, her credibility as a “real artist” is performed by demonstration while instructing her students. Students feel very comfortable with her, and really look forward to Art Class. In Wimberley for five years, she currently contracts as a painter, feature writer & photographer, book editor, illustrator & cartoonist. She teaches art, cartooning, and weaving at her home studio, Arts From The Heart, and (for three previous years) at Deer Creek Rehabilitation Center. “Painting Parties” are a new favorite activity!
