Want to develop a winning portfolio for art school applications? Study with a professional artist in a nurturing, instructional environment.

I will access your teen's current portfolio and work with them to fill in the gaps with excellent drawing and painting studies. We'll work from the still--life, the portrait and the landscape.

Tailored to your child's needs and abilities. Now enrolling for the school season of 2011, limited spots available, very flexible schedule. I offer private and semi private classes at your home or in my studio in Jamaica Plain.

Katherine received her MFA in 1996 from the Illustration as Visual Essay Program at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. She received her BS in Studio Art from Skidmore College in 1993.

Drawing

I have my undergraduate degree, a BS from Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, NY in Fine Arts. Drawing skills are essential to any visual artist. Drawing is an abstract language and a way of communication. I also have my MFA in Illustration from the School of Visual Arts in NYC. There I used drawing to convey ideas and narrative.

Painting

I have a BS from Skidmore College, 1993 in Fine Arts. My final thesis was a series of watercolor painting portraits. I also have an MFA in Illustration from the School of Visual Arts in NYC. My final thesis was a series of fifteen oil paintings. I have been teaching painting for the past eleven years in colleges, art centers and museum schools and privately. I also work on commission and show in fine art galleries.
