Radha’s qualifications in specific subjects below.
I have taken 2 years of art history class (once in high school and once in college) and have also taken an intensive history of costume and decor class, which focused on architecture and clothing of each era.
I have taken several drawing classes as an art student, including: Drawing and Rendering, Sketching and Drawing for Scenery and Costume, and Figure Drawing. Depending on what the student needs to draw, I will teach them by showing them how to break down objects into smaller shapes, and give them exercises in perspective and shading.
I have owned a Macbook pro for over four years, and am familiar with all the software that comes with them like Safari, Preview, iPhoto, iMovie, pages and more. I am also great at troubleshooting with things that go wrong with macs, because I have had mine for so long and have had several issues that I learned how to fix myself. I can also teach how to type fast using the asdf jkl; method.
I have experience with oils, acrylics, watercolor, and scenic painting including color mixing with latex paint, off Broadway paint, tints and dyes and trompe l'oeil, and have taken several classes for each of these mediums. There is a different method to painting with each medium, and depending on the student's skill level, we can start with the basics, or work on more advanced projects.
I have been sewing by hand since I was a little girl. I have been sewing by machine since high school. I am familiar with pattern making as well. I have also worked in a professional costume shop doing alterations.
As a Theatre Design and Technology major, my focus is not in acting, but in design and technical theatre. I have taken several classes in script analysis, theatre history, set design, costume design, drafting, model making, and technical direction. Depending on what the student wants to learn, I can focus on looking at a script from a conceptual point of view, or aspects of technical theatre like vocabulary one needs to know going into theatre, or designing and drawing for theatre.
