Fred is a resident painter as well as craftsperson in multiple fields. He finds beauty in many mediums and is particularly excited to work in wood. Part of Fred's inspiration for teaching woodworking at SCS came from teaching wood working at Camp Treetops in Lake Placid. As someone who spent most of his adult life in the classroom teaching high schoolers history, Fred found returning to teaching in the shop a very rewarding experience. Fred, a lifelong learner, has taken many classes at Shelburne Craft School, most involving oil painting, and thoroughly appreciates the opportunity they provided to learn and to create.
