I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts as a double major in Painting and Art History. At the Kansas City Art Institute, I have studied traditional techniques in drawing and painting and have gone on to maintain a studio practice that is informed through critical theory and writings. I have gone on to study painting and contemporary art theory at Yale as well. I am skilled in traditional techniques in oil painting, such as glazing and working from a grisaille. My skills in traditional drawing techniques include perspective drawing, drawing from life, and structural anatomy rendering techniques. I am mainly a painter that uses mixed media, so I am very versatile with acrylic, watercolor, gouache, with a strong ground in drawing.

As a double major in Art History, I have full knowledge of art history as a whole, western art history, and have specified knowledge on Medieval art history, northern Baroque art history, Modern art history, Islamic art history, Symbolists of the 1920s art history, Contemporary Art Theory and Cultural Criticism, Race and Post-colonial theory in Contemporary Art, and Women in Art History. To maintain a high GPA I have specific ways of studying for art history as memorization is very important. Essay writing and recognizing critical connections when writing about art is a skill I have developed as discussion and verbiage become important in translating the visual into written word.
I am also skilled in Adobe's Illustrator, Photoshop, and have full knowledge of professional photographing techniques. I am fluent in both English and Spanish languages.

Depending on the age I will tutor, and level at which the student is at, I will make lessons that will best inform and enrich their learning experience.

Drawing

I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts as a double major in Painting and Art History. At the Kansas City Art Institute I have studied traditional techniques in drawing and painting and have gone on to maintain a studio practice that is informed through critical theory and writings. I have gone on to study painting and contemporary art theory at Yale University as well. My skills in traditional drawing techniques include perspective drawing, drawing from life, and structural anatomy rendering techniques. I am mainly a painter that uses mixed media, so I am very versatile with acrylic, watercolor, gouache, with a strong ground in drawing.
Depending on the level of the student, I will instruct from basic drawing techniques up into conceptual ways of thinking about drawing and mark-making.

Painting

I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts as a double major in Painting and Art History at the Kansas City Art Institute. I have studied traditional techniques in drawing and painting, and have gone on to maintain a studio practice that is informed through critical theory and writings. I have gone on to study painting and contemporary art theory at Yale University as well. I am skilled in traditional techniques in oil painting, such as glazing and working from a grisaille. I am mainly a painter that uses mixed media, so I am very versatile with acrylic, watercolor, gouache, with a strong ground in drawing.
I have experience in developing activities for kids that involve painterly techniques as I worked for the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in their Family Programs division developing enriching cultural events. Depending on the age and level of the student, I will instruct them to further establish their relationship with painting, both with its technical veracity and its conceptual meaning.
