About Jill

I have been a professional artist and teacher since my teen years. My mother is an artist, and when I was a youngster I inherited the paintbox her father gave to her when she was seven years old. I was blessed with the good fortune of attending really good schools and having great teachers. As a student at Rhode Island School of design, my creativity was consistently pushed by the creative classmates with whom I worked. I always was teaching painting, even as a student, I taught summers in Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts, where my family owned an inn. I have taught painting to young and old, all over the world. It is my delight.
My style for teaching is completely hands on. I give my students some very basic instructions in the techniques of watercolor painting (in this case, although I am versed in oils, acrylics, hand-painted furniture, and tiles, as well), in the first few lessons, and then we do plein aire painting, which is painting on location. This is the techniques used in the late 19th century by great french masters, and my favorite type of painting. We will leave from my place and paint on location, architecture, flowers, and landscapes. There may be times for life drawing/painting in watercolors. I am versed and a master in these techniques as well.
I am also a Yoga instructor.

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.

Drawing

I hold certificates from L'Academie de la Grande Chaumiere and L'Academie de Beaux Arts in Paris, France for classical drawing.

My undergraduate degree is from Rhode Island School of Design where I was a painting major.
I hold an MFA from Boston University School for Fine Arts where I studied anatomical drawing and classical painting techniques with masters. I studied with Giacomo Manzu as an apprentice in Rome, Italy. I have taught figure drawing and drawing since childhood all over the world.
