My experience of Seth Barrish’s ability, when I studied with him in New York (in the late 1990s) had a profound impact on me as a teacher. Over a 30-year career I have been fortunate to have worked with many master teachers; but it was Seth’s work that unified the many approaches and differing philosophies to which I had been exposed.  As a result of that time spent, I have honed and created a solid, consistent technique for my students here at Skidmore, in part, because of Seth’s wise council.
