One of my favorite expressions from a former student is "I thought I could only draw stick figures!"
I believe anyone can learn to draw and paint! Perhaps not everyone can be a Leonardo DaVinci. However, everyone can learn to express their artistic vision through the use of such tools as pencil, brush and pigment on paper and canvas.
In a world that is becoming ever more focused on technology, it is absolutely vital to address the artistic facet of human existence within each one of us.
I work with students using such mediums as oil, watercolor, pastel, charcoal, color pencil and graphite. Students will come to understand and be able to use perspective, modeling, shading, negative and positive space, composition and color theory to be able to create representational and abstract art. Subjects can range from landscape, still life and figurative art to graphic design. I can tutor students in the use of Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign as well.
Having raised two sons with ADHD, and one of those with dyslexia in addition, I have a passionate interest in helping each student find strategies and techniques that will help them learn and truly know they can succeed!
My second language is French and I am available to tutor French speaking ESL students.
