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
, 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.
