Mr. Brian Sonders

I have been teaching at Cyd Lash Academy since the fall of 2000.  I recieved my Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Art Therapy from Millikin University and recieved a Masters Degree in Art Therapy from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.  In 2010 I recieved my Art Education Degree from Dominican University.  I am a practicing artist who enjoys oil painting and creating ceramic sculptures.  I believe creativity is a powerful tool which can be learned and exercised.  I believe the process of art making exercises problem solving skills and builds self confidence.  What I enjoy most about teaching is watching my students make new discoveries about their strengths and abilities.
