Shannon Marie’s Teaching Philosophy:
I love sharing the process of creating! I like to start by introducing materials, giving participants a “tour” of the supplies and a brief intro and then let them explore and discover. I have seen this approach work well with students to help them create amazing assemblage and collage works.
