I am a high school art teacher with four years of experience teaching and over 20 years experience as a professional creative director in advertising and marketing. I am certified to teach fine arts and Advanced Placement Studio Art. I have already assisted several of my art students with their applications and portfolios for art colleges and for after school and weekend art programs as well.
I am capable of teaching 2D and 3D art through a wide range of fine arts mediums and techniques including; painting (watercolor, acrylic), printmaking, drawing (pencil, charcoal, pen and ink, color pencils, oil and chalk pastels), sculpture (clay, paper mache, found objects, paper, cardboard), graphic design (composition/layout,typography, Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop). In addition, and equally as important, I teach the elements and principles of art (line, shape, color theory, form, and composition) which is essential to an enriched and well developed learning experience and portfolio.
My tutoring approach is relative to the individual needs and learning style of each student with emphasis on helping you to identify and develop your creative process (thinking) while using art reference materials, demonstration and hands-on projects to complete a lesson. Students must be willing to relax and be open to learn through exploration and innovation. I will not do assignments/projects or jobs for you but I will give you the skills, insight and confidence to complete them on your own.
