Story Book Farm Art School has been in existence for 33 years. It started with a few talented students from my art classes in the Newburgh School System where I taught for fourteen years before resigning to raise our daughter. I then worked part time for the Art Education Department at the University at New Paltz as supervisor of art student teachers, coordinator of placements and seminar instructor. I am now retired from teaching art at the Valley Central School District after twelve years. I have a Master’s Degree in Art Education. My pastel and water color paintings have been exhibited in shows and competitions receiving best in show, best in pastel and first place awards. It is a joy to teach art skills to my students and watch them reach their greatest potential. I would like to thank those that have taken classes with me over the years.
