She taught at Art League Academy for 3 years and still gives private lessons. Mitchell accepts commissions for her sculptures of families. She calls these pieces Family Trees.
Mitchell will give an Artist Demonstration on Thursday, August 31 from Noon - 2 pm. The topic is Sculpture: From Concept to Completion. She’ll begin with a conceptual sketch.
