Here are some recent photographs that have been added to my portfolio. They were taken at Les Tapies Art Teacher workshop held at a hamlet located in the Ardèche mountains in the south of France. The program was 10 days long and made up of 10 art teachers from around the globe. The program is designed to reconnect art teachers with their artistic roots and rekindle their passion for teaching art while exploring new ideas for strengthening their own Visual Arts departments. The TASIS Art Teacher Workshop offers a 10-day intensive creative experience in one of the most beautiful and unspoiled regions of France which in turn acts as an inspiration for creating artwork. My experience at Les Tapies energized my interest in working in plein air; the dynamic community of artists there, along with the majestic landscape all around us, made the experience not only enjoyable, but memorable.
