Hi, my name is Esther. I have a tremendous passion for teaching a variety of art mediums. I specialize in teaching high school students and adults drawing, painting, and to use other art mediums, such as watercolor, silkscreen, printmaking, and sculpture. I lived in Hawaii for three years, where I drew upon the surrounding inspiration and created landscapes and seascapes. In Hawaii, I was also a substitute teacher for grades 9-12. I have experience working with different types of students and multiple intelligences. My belief about art is simple: Anyone can learn to draw. If your son or daughter is attending a performing arts school I can also assist them in creating and perfecting their portfolios for entry into a fine art college.
I recently finished a Master's degree in Secondary Education from DePaul University, Chicago, IL. Before starting graduate school, I learned to draw and paint from industry artists at the Academy of Art University, San Francisco, CA. As a prior military officer I have the patience, discipline, and attention to detail needed for your young adult to succeed and improve during our tutoring sessions.
I've taught as the primary art teacher for a private high school and adult painting classes to beginning painters using acrylic in an art studio. Please see my schedule for availability and hourly rates or inquire by email for discounted rates.
