About Mitchell

I have had a wonderful experience teaching art. I attended the Kansas City Art Institute, Wichita State and the University of Kansas. I have the rewarding experience of teaching young students the elements and principles of art. One of my favorite experiences was teaching students how to construct a mural.
When it comes to tutoring, I have many experiences working with students. My last experience was working with a second grade student. The talent was obvious, and the parents were very supportive. I hope to continue teaching art to young people. I find that they are pure artists.

I believe that when it comes to creating art, there are no mistakes to be made. Once the student frees themselves to explore the elements and principles of art, true art appears. (It has taken me 20 years to learn this to be true).

Major: Drawing & Painting, Minor: Art History. I have competed in many art shows, and have taught art over 20 years.

If you are serious about visual art and want to learn about manipulating the two dimensional plane, please contact me.

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 a degree in drawing and painting. I have taught drawing and painting for the last ten years. After teaching young students how to draw, I found out that the most critical aspect of approaching the two dimensional plane is to teach them that it is impossible to "mess up".

Painting

I am a classically trained oil painter. I am a color theorist, and I understand the effects of light on the color spectrum. I feel strongly that if one understands light, color will be more easily manipulated.
