About Nicole

I am a fine arts drawing tutor with a BFA in Drawing and Painting and an MFA in Studio Art. I have several years experience teaching college level drawing classes focusing on the development of skills and techniques, as well as knowledge of fundamental drawing concepts and vocabulary. I also have many years of experience teaching art to children. I specialize in training students to draw what they see, building on the ability to draw from direct observation. However, I enjoy tailoring my sessions to individual student needs and interests.

I can offer you tutoring in Basic Drawing Fundamentals like Line Quality, Value, Composition, Shading Techniques, Light Logic, Linear Perspective, and Photorealism. At a more intermediate level we might work on exercises in drawing drapery, handling of reflective and transparent objects, Color Theory, Illusionistic Space versus Abstract Space, experiments with scale, experiments with technique, and Advanced Linear Perspective. At an advanced level I would be happy to guide you in how to apply skills, concepts and techniques to your individual work, how to develop your own direction, knowledge of contemporary and historical drawing and portfolio development.

I have expertise in a wide variety of mediums and materials, from graphite and charcoal to pen and ink and colored pencil. I can help you in the best approaches to working with your medium of choice, and provide advice on appropriate paper selections for your medium.

I love working with individual students, and am happy to adjust each session to fit your specific interests and needs!
