About Dean

I completed "Act One" in 1997 when I retired from US Army. "Act Two" began with art teacher certification and a job with Cecil County Public Schools. "Act Three" began with my second retirement in July of 2014. Teaching is something that has always come naturally to me. Whether as a sergeant training young soldiers to be tactically and technically proficient or as a classroom teacher giving young artists opportunities for self-expression and creative problem-solving, I have always enjoyed the exchange, the give and take of learning, the joy of seeing that "aha" moment when you know that you have broken through. I plan to continue to seek those "aha" moments as an artist and as a teacher.

I have never worked as a tutor but I see it as a great opportunity. Being able to tailor a learning experience to the specific needs of the client would lend itself to a richer and more cohesive encounter. I look forward to meeting new people who are as passionate about creating, learning and growing as I am.

I have been making art all my life. I have a Bachelor's degree in Fine Arts and a Master's degree in Art Education. I have spent the last 15 years sharing my passion for art with my students as a high school art teacher. My goal now is to continue to share that passion with those who are eager to learn while pursuing a career as a working artist. I prefer not to present myself as limited to a specific media.

I look forward to hearing from you soon. If you have specific questions I can answer about lessons for you or if you are ready to set up a schedule.

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

Drawing is the basis for all other visual art forms. As an artist I draw every day. As an art teacher I began every drawing or foundations class with a warm-up drawing. I have a bachelor's degree in fine art and a master's degree in art education. I taught drawing at the high school level for 15 years.

Graphic Design

I have a bachelor's degree in fine art and a master's degree in art education. Graphic design was always my favorite subject as a student and a teacher. I taught graphic design at the high school level for 10 years.

Painting

I have a bachelor's degree in fine art and a master's degree in art education. I have 15 years of classroom experience. Painting has been my primary artistic medium for the last 12 years. I taught painting as a medium of choice in foundations of art, graphic design and advanced drawing courses.
