About Benita

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.

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.

Theatre

I have experience with fundamental acting techniques. I studied improv at Second City Chicago, acting at Harold Washington College, and acting at the Victory Gardens Theater.
