Hello students, I'm Angelina and I've been teaching art for over six years, with students as young as five to adults in their 40's.

I specialize in fine art techniques such as traditional pencil methods and old masters' style oil painting, rendering from either stills or real life to creative problem solving to bring these valued techniques into the modern day abstract techniques.

All my one-on-one lessons are catered to the individual student's needs and based on their individual skill-set and where their interests are. Even for those who think they have minimal talent and beginners will be surprised at their growth under my guidance.

I excel in helping my students build out their portfolios, I know what competitive high school and university art departments look for and also advise about the varied job opportunities in the art field, majors to choose from and career development.

My expertise as a teaching artist draws on my experience with private tutoring since I was in high school, attending one of the most prestigious high schools in NYC, Fiorello Laguardia, to then parlaying those skills to a bachelor's in fine arts in communications design with a minor in art history at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. I have worked in the creative advertising industry, and commercial design field for the last three years as a freelance art director.

Adobe Illustrator

I attended a top tier design university in the city, and have worked professionally in the same field for the last seven years. I am very proficient at both the Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator programs.

Adobe Photoshop

I have over 7 years of experience teaching students varying from beginners to advanced both the Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator programs.

Drawing

I've been drawing since I was a small child, and have continued to pursue my love of drawing by attending an art high school where I majored in fine art, to then continue onto an art college where I graduated with a degree in communication design.

I started tutoring three years ago and have since made it my full time career. I've tutored all types of art, ranging from oil on canvas to pencil drawing.
