About Esther

Hi, my name is Esther. I have a tremendous passion for teaching a variety of art mediums. I specialize in teaching high school students and adults drawing, painting, and to use other art mediums, such as watercolor, silkscreen, printmaking, and sculpture. I lived in Hawaii for three years, where I drew upon the surrounding inspiration and created landscapes and seascapes. In Hawaii, I was also a substitute teacher for grades 9-12. I have experience working with different types of students and multiple intelligences. My belief about art is simple: Anyone can learn to draw. If your son or daughter is attending a performing arts school I can also assist them in creating and perfecting their portfolios for entry into a fine art college.

I recently finished a Master's degree in Secondary Education from DePaul University, Chicago, IL. Before starting graduate school, I learned to draw and paint from industry artists at the Academy of Art University, San Francisco, CA. As a prior military officer I have the patience, discipline, and attention to detail needed for your young adult to succeed and improve during our tutoring sessions.

I've taught as the primary art teacher for a private high school and adult painting classes to beginning painters using acrylic in an art studio. Please see my schedule for availability and hourly rates or inquire by email for discounted rates.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Drawing

To begin any art piece drawing must be mastered. I've taken beginning and intermediate drawing courses in still life, figure, and anatomy. I can honestly say that drawing is a very fun and aesthetic process. I encourage you to listen to your favorite music so that you can begin to become inspired on the drawing board. I introduce not only the different types of pencils, strokes, and blending but the techniques to bring your drawing to life.
At the Academy of Art University, San Francisco I studied with some of the bests artists in the industry and was surrounded by many talented students. We would spend 10 - 20 hours on one drawing, then offer constructive criticism to one another. As your tutor I will encourage your talent (anyone can draw), help you perfect techniques, and allow you to draw people or things that interest you.

Painting

As a graduate of the Academy of Art University (AAU) I am among the ranks of some of the most talented realism painters in the art industry. While at AAU I took numerous courses in still life painting, figure painting, head painting, landscape, surrealism, mixed media, printmaking, and sculpture. Whether you are a seasoned painter in high school or a child wishing to learn how to paint I can provide the guidance in making an interesting composition, color choice, balance, and harmony. I can paint alongside you and help you mix the paint, introduce the types of paint brushes, strokes, and how to make a beautiful painting from start to finish.
