Hello Parents, Guardians and Students!
My name is Cindy S. and I am an artist. To me, an artist is someone who's learned to look at the world with a creative point of view, inspired and encouraged to make their ideas come to life. This is my favorite most important goal to accomplish as an art teacher. To have fun, to explore ideas by trying them, to be comfortable making a mistake in order to reach the success.
I have been professionally trained and certified to be an art educator through Montclair State University, where I took several courses in art history and drawing, courses in printmaking, painting, ceramics, sculpture, life drawing, color studies and photography. In Monclair I was also certified to teach English as a Second Language.
I have taught in different schools, from my student teaching experience in a Newark, NJ high school, to elementary schools in Rockaway Township, NJ; teaching ESL maternity leave positions in NJ and volunteering in teaching organizations in the Bronx and Red Hook, Brooklyn.
As an artist, I draw portraits, paint and create mixed media works, also with a focus on people.
As an educator I always look to improve myself and value feedback highly. I value our time highly and hold a 12 hour cancellation policy. With this however, I also encourage the opportunity to reschedule the class.
Thank you for considering me!
