As an artist myself, I have been teaching Art for the last 21 years. I taught middle school for 10 years, high school for 9 years and currently I am an Adjunct Visual Professor at Lincoln University. I love to work with students that are creative and imaginative, especially those looking to find their way in the visual arts. Having worked with advanced students in AP and IB Art, I am proud to say that I have helped many students to find their artistic voice by continuing with their studies at some of the best Art Schools in the country. I am an honest and objective teacher, who see's the possibilities in every student, which helps them to independently learn to trust their imagination and push it to their individual point of completion of their work.
I hold a BFA in Graphic Design (with emphasis in Drawing) and a MAT in Art Education. I am a Certified Teacher of Secondary Art Education in the State of Delaware with 20+ years of experience. I have worked with AP Studio Art & the International Baccalaureate Visual Art programs. At the High School level, I taught Drawing, Painting, and Mixed Media. In teaching Drawing, Students will gain greater insight of the principals of drawing thru object studies and figure drawing, such as line, shape, shading and perspective. Drawing mediums will be examined such as graphite, charcoal and pastels (soft and oils). Daily exercises will be encouraged in order to help student perfect skills taught.
In teaching Painting, I use my graphic design skill-set to build my lessons. Students will learn how to control as well as the various uses of the brush. Through this, students will understanding how it can be used to obtain the outcome they are striving for in their work. Students will gain greater insight of the basic principals of painting by working with watercolor and acrylic paints. Other painting tools and methods will also be introduced.
