My Occupation Artist and Teacher
My Bio Barbara Ashton resides in Santa Monica, California. She has taught at the Brentwood Art Center, Los Angeles, California for 15 years. She has also been privileged to teach with ArTravel – the Brentwood Art Center Travel Abroad Program in both France and Italy. The summer of 2007 was her 11th year teaching abroad. She states:

For me, the process of making art and the art of teaching this process are equally rewarding and require equal amounts of focus and commitment. I find that articulating technique to students is, in itself, a practice that reinforces my understanding of the craft; and as my students improve and their confidence grows, so does my sense of purpose as an artist. At this stage in my career, becoming an effective teacher is paramount.
