About Cynthia

My love for art started when my Mom gave me a set of crayola and paper. I was five years old. Since then I have never stopped making art. This led me to finish college with a Bachelors' degree in Fine Arts at the University of the Philippines and later on as I delved into digital arts, I finished a course in Digital arts at Pasadena College. For over 20 years now I have been exhibiting my paintings here and abroad. I have joined many juried shows in Los Angeles and San Diego art galleries.

My first job after I graduated was teaching art in a private school. Then I started holding private lessons for both adults and children. I have always loved and enjoyed teaching. Seeing what my students have created is what makes it all worth it. The joy it provides me comes from the fact that I was instrumental to a person's discovery of his gifts and talents while having fun. That to me is SUCCESS!

My approach to teaching is always generally based on the child's level and skills. I allow him to relate his experiences and self expression to be included in his process of art making whether drawing or painting. I start off with basics as the foundation. I am pretty good laying down the foundation first for every student. Just like a building that will not stand strong without a good foundation.

I specialize in painting and drawing. The study of Color theory and Composition are key in my curriculum. To gain a complete grasp of creating a painting, at least eight lessons are required. I have created a comprehensive curriculum to achieve confidence in developing a style. Please be assured I am willing to travel to help you create your masterpiece!

I am flexible with time although weekends are now most preferable for me. I would request a 24 hour notice when canceling a schedule. I encourage a make up time when this happens.

I look forward to hearing from you and help you develop your creativity.

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.
