I have taken AP Studio art in High School before transferring to an International Baccalaureate program where I took Higher Level Art. I studied in the Visual Arts and Design department at Syracuse University in New York and the University of Leeds in the UK. I have experience working with various skill levels. I most recently helped a student prepare for a college art portfolio. He has never done oil painting prior to working with me, and successfully completed a 2x3' painting in a week and got accepted into 6 art schools so far. I work with a variety of media such as watercolors, acrylic and oils. I can also assist with advice on brands. I am also knowledgeable with color theory and art history which is very much relevant to painting. I design my lesson plan according to the students needs/wants. I can work with people wanting to learn painting as a hobby as well as students working on building a strong portfolio.
