My attempt at becoming an art teacher failed when, after a semester of teaching classes, I was informed that my college did not actually certify art teachers. I was too far along to switch majors completely, so I stuck it out with Studio Art (painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, etc.). As circumstances would have it, I haven't used that degree very much at all since graduating in 2004. My love of teaching has not abated however, and I still find myself tinkering around with my art supplies from time to time. I would love the opportunity to encourage creativity in someone else through helping them to hone technical skills and to develop their "art eyes". It's been a while, but I also loved art history courses and learning the role art plays in our daily life - so art appreciation is something important to me. I'm not an expert artist or experienced teacher but I am willing to negotiate my rate and drive a reasonable distance if it means someone else has the opportunity to explore their own artistic desires and grow as an artist themselves.

According to WyzAnt, I'm supposed to supply the supplies for the sessions. As art is a fairly enormous discipline, however, I think it's best to discuss what exactly we'll need before getting started. I'm signed up for Drawing and Painting but even within those two subjects there's a huge range of possibilities. I don't mind, then, working out a supplies list with students before we meet up the first time or, for students without access, sharing my own (if I have them) until some can be acquired.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Drawing

I have a degree in Studio Art from Keene State College, Class of 2004, that included several drawing classes. These classes were required for the degree and included using mixed media, art theory, and a wide range of subjects (still life, figure, portrait, etc.). A portfolio submission was part of being accepted into the major and while I haven't done any recent work I'm willing to submit what I still have from that time. Although there is no official documentation, I have helped co-teach a few elementary art classes in my old elementary school - and loved every minute of it. Although the organization never ended up getting started, I was cleared to teach art classes locally in an art center about two years ago. I still have all my outlines and curriculum that I created for those classes, and would use that as a starting point to assess a student's current level of abilities.

General Computer

I have worked on or around computers for nearly twenty years and have an intuitive grasp of how systems work. I am currently learning Java and took a couple Computer Science courses in college. I've tinkered with most of the computers I've owned, either by installing hardware or software or just physically cleaning the fan/heatsink and running anti-virus programs or Defrag. I am qualified to teach basic computer not just because I've had the classes but because most of knowledge was self-taught and gained through a lot of trial and error - which meant a more solid foundation to draw from for the next challenge.

Painting

I have a degree in Studio Art from Keene State College, Class of 2004, that included several painting classes. These classes were required for the degree and included using mixed media, art theory, and a wide range of subjects (still life, figure, portrait, etc.). A portfolio submission was part of being accepted into the major and while I haven't done any recent work I'm willing to submit what I still have from that time. Although there is no official documentation, I have helped co-teach a few elementary art classes in my old elementary school - and loved every minute of it. I also recently submitted a piece for a local charity drive (a mirror with a Doctor Who theme).
