About Leora

Passionate in creating art. My goal is to assist students to discover and identify their creative process. My goal as an artist and as a teacher is to promote free thinking and risk taking to really create an emotional experience during the process of making art.

I encourage and educate students to try using and getting to understand a variety of materials. Not limiting their creative potential.

I have taught three years of adult women's painting sessions. And taught children between 5th and 9th grade fine art at David Dweck summer camp in NJ. I studied Studio Art and Psychology at NYU. And have been a part of an Artist Collective at the Ramaz school in NYC for 3 years; led by an accomplished artist and educator of over 20 years.

I am a working artist and use mixed media in my work and with my students. I have worked at Blick Art materials on Beverly Blvd advising customers on specific art products and helping guide them with their projects. Gaining even more knowledge on what products and materials are available to us.

I love people and am very easy to communicate with. I am a mother of two daughters and have experience working with young children as well as adults.

I am dedicated to the education of art and to discovering the creativity all people possess. I enjoy teaching people to be open minded and express themselves artistically. I find joy in learning from my students and teaching them what I know.

Please feel free to contact me either by phone or e-mail. I am happy to discuss your needs and goals in creating art and how I can help be a part of your creative growth!

Looking forward to making art with you!

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

I have worked in curating an art gallery in NYC known as Celebrity Design Group.

My work has been exhibited in several group shows in NY and I had a solo exhibition in 2013 at Emmanuel Fremin Art gallery.

My goal is to encourage students to be free thinkers and take risks while creating art.

With a background in Psychology and Studio art from NYU , I focus on accessing ones creative mark. So they can identify their work as their own. I have studied under accomplished artist and photographer Rachel Rabhan, at the Ramaz School if NY. And have furthered my art education at the Art Students League in New York.

I am a single mother of two daughters 6 and 9 and truly understand how to communicate with children and allowing them to be creative and take risks.

I guide my students in developing a beautiful piece of work but my focus is to understand and enjoy the process of creating!

Painting

I completed a Bachelor's degree in Studio Art and Psychology from NYU.

Before and after my college education I personally take my own classes to better my skills. I have studied as part of an artist collective for 3 years led by accomplished artist, Rachel Rabhan and teacher at the Ramaz school. And have taken a variety of drawing and painting courses at The Arts Student League of New York.

I have led 20 women over 20 years in painting and drawing classes at Painting on the Porch and have taught children between the ages of 5th-9th grade in fine art at David Dweck Camp in New Jersey.

I am working as an artist and am constantly learning new methods and techniques to create art. I am both student and teacher and have a love for the education and expansion of creative thinking.
