I am a graduate of Massachusetts College of Art with degrees in both Painting and Art Education. I have taught visual arts in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts for over 30 years, in public schools.
I have taught children as young as 5 years old to teens and adults. In this state in order to maintain your license, you must continue to learn about your subject through classes and workshops, and unlike English teachers for example, I practice what I teach because I continue to paint and draw, pursuing my own visual ideas.
I am a early supporter of Dr. Betty Edwards' ideas that she wrote about in her book "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain", and Stan Lee's book that he wrote with John Buscema, "How to Draw Comics the Marvel Way".
As a tutor I want to continue to support the student's goals in the arts and help them to see progress in their skills and image making. I feel that there are basic ideas in art that can help with all levels of learning. I still hold an educator's license from The Commonwealth of Massachusetts for grades K-12 but I am interested in tutoring any aged student in drawing and painting and some crafts. I have my own transportation and I am willing to meet in a mutually agreed upon space. And last but not least, I still pursue my own visual ideas through drawing and painting.
