My name is Rebecca V. and I am a practicing artist and teaching instructor. I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting from the Rhode Island School of Design and and Master of Fine Arts from Parsons, The New School for Design.

I am actively engaged in both creating and showing my artwork. I have taught at various institutions including RISD, Parsons, SVA and the Joan Mitchell Foundation.

My approach to teaching is simple, I believe that art is a tool that every student can learn from. My students range from elementary schooler's to adults. I do not believe that creating art is a born talent and am inspired by my work with students on a daily basis. Whether you decide to pursue art as a career path or as a personal vehicle for growth, I will help you build the personal trust necessary to create. We will also work on practices of "seeing" outside of making.

Sharing my passion propels my personal work forward and I am inspired by working with students and enabling their expression to come to fruition.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.
