About Darrell

I truly believe in the emphasis on art as an essential learning element for young students. Art helps these students to integrate what they have learned from other subject areas into a visual representation or expression, to think through problems and find a personal solution, path, or method that they discover on their own.

It might seem simple, but through art, I would like students to consider new ways of doing things, new ways of saying something, new ways of expressing themselves. Take what you think you know about a subject, person or theme, turn it around, manipulate it, change your perspective, and then embrace the new thing that comes out of that.

I hope that I am one who can convey from the heart and teach that kind of change or transformation.

Thank you

Darrell

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

Currently I teach drawing and design studio at The Community College of Baltimore County. In addition, I tutor art for a private company working within the Baltimore City School System.

My emphasis is on the technical aspects of figure, still life and simple perspective drawing. Lessons include shading, creative line work, composition and presentation of their work.

Tutor demonstration is an important aspect of the lessons allowing the student to actually see the techniques and compositional aspects of drawing.

Thank you,
Darrell Davidson
