Art is a form of self-expression and creativity and everyone can do it. As an art teacher with over seven years' experience teaching at a private school in Atlanta, I have discovered methods using scientific studies of the brain to teach one how to draw.

Art is a form of self-expression and creativity and everyone can do it.

As an art teacher with over seven years' experience teaching at a private school in Atlanta, I have discovered methods using scientific studies of the brain to teach one how to draw. The key is to teach one “how to see”. Like a road map, all illustration work is made of lines and shapes, both positive and negative. This map can literally show one how to draw anything. Through structured lesson plans, the student learns how to see like an artist. And, thus, learns how to draw.

As a professional artist with over thirty years' experience, I know how important confidence is. I encourage students to go slowly and have an open-mind to achieve optimal results. Painting and other mediums, such as chalk and oil pastels, are extensions of drawing. However, these mediums are not limited to technical accuracy. They use the same Elements and Principles of Art to create balanced works of creative expression.

As a professional graphic designer with over thirty years' experience, I have worked as an Art Director on accounts such as Taco Bell, Coca-Cola, Zaxby’s and many more. As a graphic design instructor, I have taught students, ages 9-60, through the private school sector as well as a Continuing Education Instructor at the Savannah College of Art & Design in Atlanta. I teach the Elements and Principles of Art as it relates to graphic design on Mac using primarily Adobe Illustrator with some PhotoShop. Students are excited to see work they create become real products they can actually use and print. T-shirt designs are very popular as well as poster design for their bedrooms. A few of my students have created small businesses for their graphic design services.

As for my tutoring experience, I am giving this a go. One on one instruction promises to be more productive than a class of twenty-five.

Please feel free to ask to see examples of my work and, of course, my students’ wonderful creativity.
