Sharon Zacharias, artist and instructor, has been teaching for over 20 years.  Her passion is mixed media art and making designer greeting cards.  She makes each item, carefully choosing coordinating papers, embellishments and other materials that compliment each other.  They are truly a "one of a kind" labor of love and work of art.  A unique part of her personality is to share her creativity and inspire others.

As a native Californian, Zacharias lived in San Diego prior to moving to Austin, Texas.  She had a printing and publishing company for over 25 years.  She has won numerous design and printing awards over the years.  Being an educator and creative designer has served her well.

Teaching is obviously her passion, whether it is decorating, art, design, or handcrafted items such as card making.  She has taught in California, Arizona, and Texas.  As a resident of Indio, Zacharias brings her creative endeavors to The Children's Discovery Museum of the Desert and Palm Springs area.  Whether one uses her ideas as a basis or as a springboard for one's own creativity, one quickly realizes why people love making and receiving designer cards.  It's a personal gift of oneself.  WARNING:  Classes are fun and habit forming!
