About Jocelyne

Hello! My name is Jocelyne. I'm a passionate, patient and friendly art instructor.

I've had 20+ years of drawing and painting experience. I graduated from a top art university in NYC; The School of Visual Arts with a BFA in Fine Arts. I love teaching all ages (children & adults).

I have experience working one-on-one and in groups with adults, teens and children as young as 2 years old. I've taught art through different art programs and community services, and with people with developmental disabilities. I have experience in teaching figure drawing, traditional drawing, photo-realism and painting, as well as portraiture. I believe lots of practice, patience, discipline and embracing ones mistakes in art is absolutely key.

I'm available to teach one-on-one in my own art studio, your home, library or coffee shop. I'm also available to teach online. I don't have one specific way of teaching as I like to cater my lessons depending on the student's age, needs and abilities as everyone learns differently and has a different goal.

I'm dedicated in helping my students improve their skills, guide them through their creative ideas and help them achieve their goals, all while maintaining a relaxed, patient and fun atmosphere.

Please feel free to message me. I look forward to getting creative 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.

Autism

I'm an art instructor at The Claraty Arts Project, an art studio that works with adults with all types of developmental disabilities. I've worked with several artists who have Autism and whom I've helped teach different artistic skills and developed art goals/behavioral goals for.

I've had experience teaching people with developmental disabilities drawing, painting, watercoloring, pastels, inks, printmaking, photography, collaging, colorpencils and charcoal.

I've had lots of experience working one-on-one plus with small to large group settings of a maximum of 20 people and helping develop my clients' artistic style, technique and body of work.

Please feel free to message me about art lessons and what you would like to learn. I look forward to having a fun time making art with you! :)

Drawing

Drawing has been part of my life since I was a child and the core part of my artistic process. I went to University at The School of Visual Arts in NYC majoring in Fine Arts (Drawing & Painting).

I've had experience teaching drawing one-on-one as well as in small to large group settings of a maximum of 20 people. Most recently I've been working as an art instructor at The Claraty Arts Project, an art studio that works with adults with developmental disabilities. I have experience working with children (2-13yrs) one-on-one through art programs, community service and babysitting.

I teach figure drawing classes in my studio on a monthly basis to people aged 18-60yrs old.

My personal body of work currently focuses on drawing the human figure and portraiture in a hyper-realistic style.

Please feel free to message me about drawing lessons and what you would like to learn. I look forward to having a fun time drawing with you! :)

Painting

I went to University at The School of Visual Arts in NYC majoring in Fine Arts (Drawing&Painting). I've also studied figure painting at the Florence Academy of Art, learning the traditional styles of old master painters.

I've had experience teaching painting one-on-one as well as in small to large group settings of a maximum of 7 people. I'm also an art instructor at The Claraty Arts Project, an art studio that works with adults with developmental disabilities. I've taught acrylic, oil, watercolor, watercolor pencils and ink painting.

I also have experience working with children (2-13yrs) one-on-one through art programs, community service and babysitting.

My personal body of work currently focuses on the human figure and portraiture in a hyper-realistic style similar to my painting style.

Please feel free to message me about painting lessons and what you would like to learn. I look forward to having a fun time painting with you! :)
