Teaching Experience

Shelley has a longstanding reputation for being a creative, articulate, and enthusiastic art instructor. Over the past twenty-five years she has taught many full-term drawing, watercolor, and sculpting classes, both privately and through Eastern Oregon University and Blue Mountain Community College. Her most recent eleven week class, "Drawing and Intro to 3-D Design" for BMCC, 2011, was in collaboration with local artist Jack Coelho, MFA, MA Education.

Also in collaboration with Mr. Coelho, in 2009 Shelley was assistant instructor for a three-week ceramics workshop on "Primitive Ceramic Firing Techniques", as part of the Alaska Artists in Schools Program, on the Pribilof Islands, Bering Sea, Alaska.
