Learn to letter and illustrate with Ren! Classes are available for children through adults.

What to Expect in a Ren & Ink Workshop

Teaching is actually my first love — I have a degree in Art Education, and I’ve been instructing children since I was a teenager as a ski instructor. From there, I have taught in public schools, summer camps, and I've grown to partner with local PA studios and nonprofits to lead workshops. I am so grateful that I am able to marry my passions — lettering, illustration and teaching!

When attending a Ren & Ink workshop, you’ll have the experience of a real art class, but explained simply in terms you can understand. I hold no secrets back — you'll learn all my tested and approved techniques to successfully illustrate or letter amazing work.

My main goal as your instructor is to have you walk away with newly learned skills and a new obsession. Can’t wait to have you in class!
