Art Theory

I received a M.A.T. in visual art from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2002. My teaching experience includes eight years as an elementary art teacher. I would be happy to provide access to letters of recommendation and teaching portfolio examples.

Photography

Photography continues to be a passion of mine after 30 years. I've photographed a wide range of subject matter, including sports, nature, events, fine arts and children's portraiture. In 1999, I received a B.A. in Studio Art from the University of Rhode Island. I earned a M.A.T. in Visual Arts from Rhode Island School of Design in 2002 and became an art teacher. I have more than 8 years of experience teaching elementary level art including enrichment programs in photography. I'm now pursuing a career in photography with an emphasis on fine art and portraiture. I made the move to digital photography 10 years ago, so I am proficient in DSLR cameras and Photoshop. I also have a wealth of previous experience in black and white and color film-based photography. I work hard to break things down clearly and empower students to use photography to capture or create what they find exciting. My role is that of a knowledgeable collaborator, there to guide you to where you want to go, and to show you the technical and artistic possibilities that photography offers.

Approved Subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

If a tutor is interested but not yet certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
