About Jennifer

I have been employed as an art teacher for over 28 years in both the public and private schools. My teaching experience spans all grade levels from K-12, and I have also taught as an instructor at the college level for future art teachers. I enjoy working in all media, and can instruct students on many levels to improve or explore their creative skills in the areas of drawing and painting.

I am licensed through the state of Illinois with certification for grades K-12, endorsement in art. I currently work as a self-employed teacher, teaching drawing and painting classes. In addition, I teach an evening class in Fashion Design to teenage girls who want to learn the basics of figure modeling, and clothing design.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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

As an art education major, I have had over 30 hours of training applying drawing skills in a variety of media. My experience teaching art to grades K-12 has increased my ability to reach each student at their level and improve their drawing skills.

My lessons are broken down into steps that build upon sequential art skills. I am qualified to instruct students in pencil, marker, pastel, oil pastel, and other drawing medium to provide a rich portfolio of work.

Students will learn to draw from observation as well as imagination.

Painting

As an art education major, I have been trained extensively in the area of painting using a variety of media. My specialty is watercolor and I also enjoy acrylics/oils on canvas.

I have accumulated over 30 hours of studio course work in this field. Combined with my public/private school teaching, I feel very qualified to instruct students of all ages in the areas of painting.

I currently teach drawing and painting in Winnetka for the North Shore Art League.
