Michael recently became an Adjunct Professor at Eastern Michigan University.  In the past year, he has taught watercolor painting courses to students at the graduate level to non-majors who have never touched a brush to paper or canvas.  Below is a small sampling of the work done by Michael's introductory students. Almost all of these new artists have no background in studio art whatsoever.

The name below the work is the name of the artist not the name of the painting's subject.
