I am a certified art teacher with experience in teaching elementary art in public schools, small painting classes and private lessons. My approach to teaching art is to help students discover where their skills and interests connect in creating work that reflects their unique style. I provide step-by-step instruction for beginners as needed. For more experienced students, I offer coaching and support as their work becomes more focused. For children’s classes I believe it is important to give them opportunities to explore a variety of media and subjects. For all ages, I bring reference photos as well as famous paintings to inspire and study.
Drawing and painting from life is another option I give my classes, with still life objects or outdoors excursions. Visual references are a good starting point, and I also would encourage those interested in a more abstract style to paint from memory or imagination. Most importantly, I teach the fundamentals of painting according to the skill level of each class, including: the elements of art, composition, and color theory. Learning the basic techniques and concepts of painting gives students of all ages the confidence to create work that they can be proud of.
