To do great art you must be a keen observer of the world around you whether that be by sight, smell, sound, taste or touch.
Art is not just hand-eye coordination. My technique of teaching is not simply "draw line A and connect to circle B=Figure C".

Art is also a philosophy, it can embody philosophy and shows (and even reveals) a lot about an artist. A student needs expand into other disciplines and other areas of life in order to reach their potential. Learning to paint, draw, or sculpt is learning how to change your perception of how you see the world. What you think or feel has an enormous impact on what and how you draw. My method of teaching incorporates a student's identity into the process. Your autonomy is crucial to learning.

For over 7 years I have taught children and teen art classes at a YMCA residential summer camp in Arizona. Whatever level of skill you are at, I assure you I have an infinite amount of patience and techniques to suit your learning style. Art classes included: Drawing, painting, freestyle, mixed media, ceramics, advanced ceramics, leather working, assorted crafts.

I am primarily self-taught, my first teacher was Bob Ross on PBS back in 1993. However, I will receive a minor in Studio Art in May 2013.

Figuring out your style and medium is primary. You need not commit to one "style" or medium. I facilitate as a guide.

When I was a teenager, an Art Director at Cartoon Network reviewed my portfolio. He gave me some words of advice: [On animating cartoons] "If we [as artists] do our jobs right, some kid will want to grow up and be an artist." He wasn't just talking about the "quality" of the animation. He also meant that artists must have enthusiasm, a message, and character. I hope that as an instructor I am just as as encouraging.

Peace,

-Abby
