MEET SOME OF THE GREAT GUEST INSTRUCTORS BELOW:

Introducing Singh:

I have been teaching art for the past 26 years. I am passionate about art and believe that it is a valuable tool for personal expression, creativity, and problem-solving. I am also committed to providing all students with a challenging, yet fun, experience.

I started my teaching career in the Chicago Public Schools where I taught all grade levels.  For the past 18 years I taught in Riverside at the Jr. High level; where I had the opportunity to teach a wider range of art classes, there I taught drawing, painting, printing, sculpture, and ceramics.

I realized early on how much I loved teaching art and helping students discover their own creativity.  I believe that art is for everyone, and I am passionate about helping students discover their own artistic voice.


Introducing Jamie:

Art has been my passion since I was a kid. I have always loved artwork that you can pick up and hold in your hands. As a high school art teacher, ceramics is by far the BEST subject to teach. I love watching students grow as artists and create work that reflects their personality. Outside of clay, I like to create comic books, hike with my dog, and take road trips with my husband. I am excited to work with aspiring artists of all backgrounds at Bothwell Pottery!

Introducing Abby Troyer:

Abby is currently an art teacher at Cossitt Elementary in LaGrange Distict 102.  


Thank you Greta for this amazing cicada!

About me

My passion for Pottery started in 2014.  While I have created with clay since high school, throwing on the pottery wheel fascinated me.  Bothwell Pottery has long been a dream of mine.  Offering handbuilding and wheel classes to artists young and old. Outside of art, I love fishing, skiing and travelling.
