About Latasha

I have been creating art for 17 years and enjoy teaching my knowledge to others. I enjoy showing people that anyone can be creative and creativity is accessible to everyone. I have learned many art techniques and have experience in many art mediums. Pencil, watercolor, acrylic, markers and other various mediums are my strong suit. I have 10 years of various writing experience and many skills to share to help others create exceptional papers.

My instructional style is one on one while pushing the student's creativity and imagination. I am passionate about teaching and helping my student grow in their talents and skills. I enjoy receiving questions about art topics and am patient in teaching art in general.

I have a patience for teaching English and writing to students. English can be a very frustrating subject and having a tutor that can be patient and support the student while they are learning the subject is crucial to mastering the subject. I am able to provide this much needed support and guidance to the student.

I have a knack for supporting younger students in their journey in learning the basics of art and core subjects. Giving support while letting the student discover the subject with guidance is key to mastering the subject while creating greater curiosity for the subject too.

I have been drawing professionally since the age of 16 by doing commissions, conventions and creating general art for clients. I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Illustration and graduated with a 3.95 GPA. I have illustrated a children's book, worked for an online social network called Kin Valley LLC, currently work for a studio on various cartoon shows for FX and Fox, and still actively create images of clients on a freelance basis.

Please contact me if you feel I am the right fit for your tutoring needs. I am able to meet one on one or online through WyzAnt to discuss tutoring needs and what the student would like to achieve from the lessons.

I have formal training in painting for over 16 years in watercolor, acrylic, ink wash and other various painting mediums. I have also studied digital painting in Photoshop and Manga Studio. Teaching students the basics of each medium is crucial to fundamental learning and becoming proficient in the many painting mediums. I approach teaching the subject of painting to my students through techniques I have acquired and guided experimentation of the medium of choice.

Latasha made sure that she reviewed my goals for Adobe Illustrator before we even opened the laptop. She began the lesson with the very basics, making sure that I understood every step we made, was so extremely patient (which can be so intimidating for me when I am learning something new!) and sent me homework to complete before our next session. I feel that with Latasha's help I will have Adobe I
