About Sobia

I have taught art to students of various ages for two years at Colesville Child Center (CCC). In college, I have student-taught classes in Painting and Photography, both focusing on practice and concepts. I can teach abstract as well as realistic painting.

I believe the arts can help enrich quality of life, as they can be the building blocks for strong communities. I love that as a tutor I can be part of someone's creative growth and help them see the power in art.

My experience of teaching art to 20 middle- and elementary-school students at CCC for two years has strengthened this belief in art as a means of intellectual growth for all ages, especially children. At CCC, I independently designed the art curriculum, supervised the arts program, managed class schedules, engaged students in exciting creative projects, and included a cultural component to introduce them to learn about other parts of the world. I also monitored volunteers that dedicated their time to help at the center.

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions! I would love to meet you and make great art with you.

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.

Painting

I have a bachelors in Studio Art from the University of Maryland, College Park. I received an honors art award while working in the painting and photography department. I have taught painting to students of various ages and levels. For two years, I was a water-color and acrylic teacher at Colesville Child Center, where I focused on teaching landscapes, still life, and self-portraits to children of ages 5 to 13. I have also taught painting at college level to freshmen and sophomores, which focused on mixed media. large-scale abstract paintings. I focused on teaching light, composition and content. I focus on background, middle ground, and foreground.

Photography

I have a bachelors in Studio Art from the University of Maryland, College Park. As an Honors student, I received a certificate in Digital Media, including film and photography, and my thesis show at the end of the semester was focused on digital photography, which I won an award for. I was a teaching assistant for a photography course at the University of Maryland. Recently, I have been assisting Sora Devore, a well-known professional photographer in DC. Last December I traveled to Oaxaca, Mexico on a photography trip to document lives of families within their houses.
