About Benita


Bio

I have been involved in the arts for many years as a teacher and solo artist. I truly enjoy working with children, watching them explore and learn new things where they could apply throughout their academic careers.

As a teacher for the Chicago Public Schools, I have learned that you have to meet the student where they are in life. For example, understanding their music, environment and culture and apply it in a fashion that captures their interest.

I have been involved in the arts for many years as a teacher and solo artist. I truly enjoy working with children, watching them explore and learn new things where they could apply throughout their academic careers.

As a teacher for the Chicago Public Schools, I have learned that you have to meet the student where they are in life. For example, understanding their music, environment and culture and apply it in a fashion that captures their interest.

Throughout my career, I have taught all ages including adults and dealt with a variety of tools and materials conducive with each group. Currently, I am teaching Fashion Sketching at the International Academy of Design and Technology (IADT). In this capacity, students are taught the basic structure of the Human Anatomy, and how garments conform to the figure. In addition, students are taught how to utilize a variety of mediums and tools such as brushes, techliners, pens, pencils (H and B) oils, acrylic, watercolors, inks, pastels, colored pencil and markers. Students, at the end of each term are encouraged to present a portfolio that embodies a collection of work completed during the course.
