My educational background is a Bachelor of Fine Arts with an emphasis in Entertainment Art and Animation. I graduated Magna Cum Laude and as a member of the Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society. After graduation, I began taking classes at AnimSchool to further my animation demo reel.

In California, I have taught colored pencils, sculpture, and painting for four years. I have also taught a pastels and watercolor class in Uganda for a private primary school. Most of tutoring experience has included ink, charcoal, pencils, and acrylic.

As a tutor, my goal is to inspire art enthusiasts to explore their talents with different art mediums. I strive to supply students with artistic technique, opportunities to practice what they have learned, and lots of encouragement. I think art is fun and exciting whether it be as a hobby or as a professional. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you might have!

Art

Drawing,

Drawing

Drawing is my favorite art medium to work with and to teach! I am experienced with drawing and have taught it in classrooms for more than five years and have tutored quite a few students as well. I am prepared to tutor using value, texture, gesture, design, line weight, and perspective. With beginning artists, I find that drawing from a reference is most helpful prior to drawing from imagination and creativity.
Painting,

Painting

Most of my working experience in the past seven years includes acrylic, gouache, digital, and pastels. I have experience teaching a private primary school class using pastels and water color paint. I have also tutored art students using mixed paint media. I enjoy helping assist artists with color theory and composition, lighting, painting styles, work flow (general to specific), design principles and elements.

Animation,

Animation

After graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in animation, I began taking classes with AnimSchool. I have attended classes from animation industry professionals from BluSky, Walt Disney Animation Studios, Cartoon Network and DreamWorks. I am on track to graduate with my third academic animation credential in winter 2021. My animation workflow includes starting with a blocking phase in Maya, then continuing to spline and polish.
Autodesk Maya,

Autodesk Maya

The Bachelor of Fine Arts program consisted of entertainment generalist classes using Maya for modeling, rigging, texturing, lighting, and animation. One of my models is featured in the campus hallway as an example for the class. I was also selected by my rigging professor to be his teachers assistant. I have been working with Maya for seven years and use the program daily for my animation projects.

Amazing Tutor/Mentor For my 11TH Grader AP ART

My daughter has now had 3 sessions with Katherine. My daughter is developing a fantastic relationship with Katherine, as much a tutor as a mentor. She is not only assisting my daughter in her AP Art class but having her look forward to her needed College Portfolio and discussing possible schools. Following each session Katherine sends a detailed message of what they covered and what my daughter needs to do prior to the next session. We are very lucky/thankful to have found Katherine.

My son loves his drawing class with Kath

My son usually is very nerves when he is new to someone, but he has no such feeling in his first class with Kath. He always told me Kath is very detailed compared to his previous drawing teacher, he loves his drawing class and always is excited when it is time for his drawing class.

My 9 year old loves the class and the tutor. She is excited to use everything she learns as soon as she gets a chance. The summary I get after the lesson is fantastic snd super thorough. Amazing.

Thoughtful lesson

Kathrine did a great lesson with my son. Reviewed several of the pieces that he had drawn, and gave great feedback. Also introduced him to many new concepts that he can continue to work on.

Skilled and Supportive Tutor

Katherine has taught my child to draw. She is a very patient and encouraging teacher. Katherine is extremely supportive to our needs, and my daughter looks forward to her lessons.

Applicable Skills

Katherine has inspired my son to go above and beyond in his lesson focus. Her teachings have crept into his everyday routines, as he applies artistic tips and recommendations into the simplest of drawings. The amount of time that Kat puts into the preparation of these lessons, as well as the effort she puts into post-content and communication allows me to know that we truly found a gem. We feel very fortunate to have Katherine working with our son and look forward to many, many more lessons.

Knowledgeable, Great with Kids, Extremely Friendly

Katherine has been great! She is great with kids and knows how to present fundamentals as building blocks towards bigger concepts. Right now, we are working on animation - but it is fairly obvious that she is a "jack of all trades." If you are looking for someone that is compassionate, experienced, and thorough - Katherine is a great choice!

Dan, 10 lessons with Katherine

Incredibly flexible and Fun

I've done two sessions with Katherine now, and I find that I am more excited and driven after ever session. She is great at understanding where your current skills are, and adapting lessons to both challenge you and teach you techniques that help fill any gaps. I will definitely continue to work with her and develop my skills with her tutorage.
