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.

Lets discuss art in society, discover new ways of thinking about what art is, go beyond what you know the classroom and think in a more critical, worldly and creative way. We will explore different assumptions and theories of what art is,through history and modern society.
I have a great deal of experience with art theory and art history. During my undergraduate studies I took Art and Culture, Renaissance Art History, 20th Century Art History,and Ancient to Modern Art History. While teaching middle school art for two years, I based the curriculum around Art History as well as studio art; it was the core of my lessons then and now.
I worked at a private middle school teaching art education, instructed several after school art workshops, and have helped to develop educational art programs in schools and as well as the Norman Rockwell Teacher Committee at the Smithsonian. After working as an artist in residence in Italy, I presented my project and research at a local Iowan library; providing information about the techniques,practices, and historical references used in my work.
Explore the fundamental properties of drawing through a variety of mediums: pencil, pen and ink, and colored pencil. In this lesson you will practice a variety of skills and techniques for you to become a better drawer. Some of these include: shading,blending, stippling, hatching, and cross-hatching etc. You will also learn about perspective, proportion and composition to better your understanding of realistic drawing.
I have over 10 years of experience drawing. During my undergraduate studies I studied advanced drawing in Mexico and explored a variety of other classes dedicated to drawing and the arts. After graduation I taught Middle School Art for two years, focusing on developing students artistic abilities; especially in drawing. I also designed and implemented drawing and portfolio building electives to strengthen students skills and prepare them for High School. For adults, I've presented workshops on public art as well as my own work. I feel that drawing is a skill that can be learned and mastered if given the right tools and resources.
