Because she is a visual and tactile learner herself, her classes typically involve a lot of hands-on learning time. Sarah’s classes are accompanied by printed information and resources for her students to refer to when practicing their new skills.
Sarah’s art has been displayed in the Seattle Metals Guild and Bainbridge Arts & Craft exhibitions. Her work is sold at Bainbridge Island Museum of Art. www.foggyroaddesigns.com
