Classes & Workshops

Participants in Susan’s classes and workshops agree that she has a talent for awakening and super-charging their creativity gene.  Within her classes, participants develop a visual vocabulary that enables them to speak with greater confidence and enthusiasm.  Authenticity is valued; so is originality.

Never forgetting the experience of her own student days, Susan approaches her teaching with a firm conviction that all students, beginners and advanced alike, have something very rich and personal to say.  She focuses unfailingly to help class participants appreciate their strengths, and then she provides them with a treasure chest of techniques and strategies that help them share their vision with increasing confidence and authority.  In other words, those participants in Susan’s classes  learn to speak from the soul.
