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!

Drawing

Fundamentals of drawing. We went over various drawing techniques and what I might be the most interested in trying out. Looking forward to more practice down the line.

Ankit, 1 lesson with Allison

An awesome art teacher!

I have Allison for art and she is great! She's very patient and she helps me get a great result. I've only been taking lessons from her for a little while but I can already see so much improvement in my art! She's also very nice and easy to talk to. She plans our lessons around what I want to work on and helps me know what to adjust in my drawings. I definitely recommend her to anyone who wants to improve their art.

Fantastic Tutor = ALLISON M. I passed my test the firsrt time I took it thanks to Allison M.

I highly recommend Allison as a tutor. Allison provided professional and outstanding tutoring. My objective was to pass the PLT – Praxis test and Allison proved to be ready for any challenge. She showed up at our sessions prepared with great ideas, research, patience, kindnes. She also provided phenomenal support. She provided me with great foundations including specific teachings on how to take the test. Without her support I wouldn't have been prepared (knowing what I know now), to pass a test that is absolutely required for my career as a teacher. I will be requesting Allison again for future tutoring services!

She also recommended art supplies and sent links. Very happy with my progress thus far. I recommend her highly.

Gives great step by step directions!

Allison used to be a former high school art teacher and it shows! She is very methodical about breaking down what we're doing into simple steps. She will also give great tips on simple techniques like the way to hold your pencil or how to shade. When I started with her I asked if she could help me improve my portrait drawings and a few weeks down I feel like I have learned and improved a lot. She is also a very kind and understanding person and easy to talk to. I had some troubles with my schedule due to things happening at work and she was able to accommodate the changes. I would definitely recommend her to anyone trying to improve their drawing!

Great teacher

My son's reading. He is doing very well. He has been looking forward to every lesson. I think he will benefit very much from her experience. Can't wait to see all of the progress in the coming weeks
