She brings a fresh and thorough approach to her teaching with a variety of exciting and innovative courses ranging from Mixed Media and Encaustic classes to Hand Altering Photos with Fine Art Materials. Shary has an engaging and informative approach that students find both educational and fun at the same time".

"Shary's Encaustic Collage workshop was a really enjoyable, educational day. I learnt an incredible amount about the art of encaustic and left with a piece I can hang on my wall. Shary was knowledgeable about her subject and able to impart that knowledge with ease. She was wonderfully generous with materials. I loved the small size of the class. A day well spent and a class I can highly recommend."

"I really enjoyed Shary's class. It was exactly what I needed to feel motivated and excited about art again. She is a wonderful teacher. I have been an adult educator for thirty years so I don't say this lightly." D.L.
"After having taken several art courses at the college level, I found this class to be above and beyond what I have taken in the past. The instructor was excellent. Excellent course. The instructor was very well-organized and very giving of her time and knowledge." C.M.
