Each day is a new day to learn and acquire new skills or build on those that you choose to focus on. Reading and writing are part of my daily routine for improving upon my knowledge while feeding my curiosity of all there is to know. Create drawings, watercolor paintings, acrylic paintings, printmaking, photography, sculpture, any and all art forms! Drawing is where it all began with me when I was in junior high.

Each day is a new day to learn and acquire new skills or build on those that you choose to focus on. Reading and writing are part of my daily routine for improving upon my knowledge while feeding my curiosity of all there is to know. Create drawings, watercolor paintings, acrylic paintings, printmaking, photography, sculpture, any and all art forms! Drawing is where it all began with me when I was in junior high. Printmaking was my major within my Art Studio degree from California State University Chico and has been my art form of choice for over 20 years. I received my Single Subject Teaching Credential in Art at San Francisco State University and became a member of The Graphic Arts Workshop, a printmaking cooperative. I taught art and photography at the high school level, with a wet darkroom and digital darkroom using Photoshop for 10 years and loved it. My daughter was born and we moved from California to Colorado. Now certified to teach in Colorado too and I look forward to working with you!

Amazing/Kind/Reliable/Smart

Allison has been a lifesaver through the entire online school process. She has made the process so much more tolerable for my son. I actually feel like he has done better than when he was actually in school. My son would tend to feel stressed. He has been so relaxed and more confident. Our son is hopefully moving into his new school for 9th grade, with full time, in person learning, in the fall. We plan on still having Allison work with our son as she has been so helpful. Teaching him how to keep organized. They work together almost everyday. We used to work in person but because of Covid, we had to work online. I was worried that wouldn't work well, that my son needed someone in person, but Allison made the online tutoring work like a charm. She has a great personality and being an educator in the current school system, she is up to speed with how the curriculum works and all the in's and out's to the schools online homework assignments, submitting assignments, etc. She is knowledgeable in all subjects.

Patient and encouraging

Great first lesson. Patient and knowledgeable and kept it fun! I told her what skills I wanted to improve upon and she had a great activity for me. Looking forward to working with her again.

Very patient

She was very helpful. She made sure we understood everything. She broke it down into segments. She made sure my daughter knew how to work the program . This was our first time with her but it was good.

Good Eye

Allison offered some suggestions for my art student that can be implemented immediately to improve, and organized some topics for future lessons to fill in the knowledge gaps.

Deep understanding of drawing and art

Allison is extremely passionate, positive, and well-prepared for each session. She is very talented and has examples and tools to develop drawings. The student is 9 years old and expressed an interest in learning all phases of drawing. Allison began with some elements of the face and shading with different pencils. Although these were great places to start for some students, our student was not very motivated to practice these on his own. His mom has decided to suspend further sessions while she reevaluates what he wants to obtain from drawing sessions. Unfortunately, it was also difficult to continue the tutoring sessions at 6 pm in the evening, which was the time Allison was available, and still keep to a weeknight schedule for dinner and bed. Our student was winding down and not as focused at that time. That said, we would recommend Allison for future tutoring.
