About Karen

Hi, I am an Art History Graduate student at SJSU. I have been studying Art History in depth for over 5 years and I am currently working on my thesis, which will discuss ideals of masculinity within the body image of male superheroes in American comic books, focusing specifically on the character of Batman. Prior to studying art history, I studied art, specifically painting, and I am familiar with the different techniques and styles used in that medium.

I am very enthusiastic about art history and love to teach and share my knowledge with others. I am working towards becoming an art history professor, so I have experience providing information in a way that is easy to understand and fun! I feel that I would be a great match for any student looking for an excellent tutor.

I have earned my AA degree in 2-dimensional art, where my focus was painting. I also have earned my BA degree in Art History. While working on both of these degrees I extensively studied the history of art, focusing on the Renaissance and Baroque periods. Currently, as my thesis research progresses, my studies focus more on Contemporary art. Additionally, I studied Modern and Contemporary architecture as well as art theory.

I look forward to working with you to develop your understanding and love for art and art history.

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.

Adobe Photoshop

As part of my undergraduate studies, I took some classes in graphic design. I have learned the basics of using Adobe Photoshop and have the skills necessary to teach basic functions to others.

Architecture

I have been studying architecture through my art history studies for over 5 years. As a graduate student, I have taken modern architecture classes and have a more solid understanding of 20th century architecture. However, I have also studied structures from the 15th to 17th centuries and can knowledgeably tutor on older architectural periods/styles.

Art History

I am currently an Art History Graduate student at San Jose State University and have been studying this subject for over five years.

Art Theory

As an undergraduate and graduate student, I have taken several classes and seminars in art theory. I am familiar with traditional or classical theories, though I am more proficient with contemporary theories. I also own and have read many books on art theory and keep up to date with contemporary art theorists through magazines such as Art Bulletin.
