Bachelors of the Arts (painting)
My name is Justin and I'll start with "Hello". I've worked as a practicing artist and studied art at two separate colleges accumulating two art degrees (AA in Fine Art and a BFA in Painting). I'm practiced and ready to teach several artistic mediums including: paint (acrylic and oil), sculpture (plaster, wood, wax, clay, glass, metal, mixed), ink, pencil, graphite, etc.
I base lessons on what the student and their parents would like, increasing challenge and freedom depending on the existing skill level and enthusiasm of the learner. I can teach a student of any level, from complete novice to artists looking for more practice. The lesson plan starts with learning and practicing terminology helping the student generate an understanding of the techniques used to communicate their ideas and improve their work. The next step is an introduction the the medium (or mediums) that the student will be using for the creation of their works. This involves exposure to different styles and uses for any materials that interest them. Next, understanding the physical design of a piece will allow them to create works that use the students composition to generate a higher level of quality then just an accurate representation. Finally, a focus on conceptual design will teach the student how to think of what it is that they will be creating. conceptual design brings together all of the previous elements for your student to generate a concept, composition, and image of their own for themselves. I look forward to meeting you soon! My name is Justin and I'll start with "Hello".

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.
