About Laurie

I'm a former college instructor and have taught fine and commercial art including: drawing, 2-D design, graphic design, illustration (traditional and digital), and typography. I am best at teaching in a one-on-one capacity with demonstrations and critiques being vital to the learning process. I'm very patient, and encourage students to look at other work and talk about it, as I believe that seeing and analyzing are essential to our growth as artists.

My own background is diverse and I have degrees in fine art, technical writing, and web design/development. My graduate degree was from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where I studied painting and theory. I later went on to study (and teach) commercial art in a community college capacity.

I'm also qualified to do proofreading or help with expository writing (and other formal writing). I can tutoring either onsite or remotely (if this is permitted by Wyzant Inc.).

I'd be happy to discuss your needs and my skills in more detail at your convenience.

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

I have an M.F.A. from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in painting. I have taken extensive coursework from undergrad schools including Drawing 1 and 2 and Figure Drawing.

I've taught drawing and design at Washtenaw Community College and Lansing Community College.

I can instruct based on individual needs or tutor from my own curriculum and exercises (developed when I taught). This can be negotiated prior to tutoring.

Dreamweaver

I've used Dreamweaver for about 12 years (and also hand code). In addition to an art degree, I have a computer science degree in web development. I'm qualified to teach basic web design using Dreamweaver and the Adobe suite.

Topics may include user interface design, image prep for the web, best design practice, coding fundamentals, and FTP using the Dreamweaver interface.

Painting

I have an M.F.A. in painting from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and have exhibited locally and nationally.

My areas of expertise include acrylic, oil, water soluble oil, and mixed media painting.

Web Design

I have a two year degree in computer science in web development. I've worked full-time as a web content manager for two years. My online portfolio of website writing and coding work is available upon request. I also have a graphics background and education. I've taught graphics at the college level (WCC and LCC).
