Shauna Shane has been teaching at the West Hartford Art League for 15 years now.
Currently, Shane, a Storrs resident, is featured in an art exhibit called “A Journey of Artistic Expression” at the Simsbury Public Library alongside eight of her students.
One of those students, Avon resident Meghan Shanley Waskowitz, said there’s something special about Shane as a teacher.
“As we’ve taken a class with Shauna, and then another, we realized what a good teacher she was,” Waskowitz said. “She’s able to convey techniques and why we’re doing what we’re doing, rather than just how to do it. She helps us see what you don’t normally see.
