About Melanie

My passion for art stems from my belief that the arts allow individuals to express themselves in a non-verbal way which is unique to each person. Fostering creativity not only helps improve artistic skill but can also improve an individual's ability to problem solve and think critically as well as abstractly.

I graduated from Ramapo College of New Jersey with a Bachelor's Degree in Drawing and Painting. Currently, I am pursuing a Master's Degree in Art Therapy and Mental Health Counseling. I am a published artist and have been involved in many gallery shows. My knowledge includes art history, painting, drawing, sculpture, theater, dance, and photography and a have multiple years of experience working in each area. I have experience working with all ages (Pre-K to Adult) through various forms of volunteer work. I believe that my extensive background in the arts as well as my background in Art Therapy gives me a unique advantage of meeting individuals where they are in that moment and allows me to focus in on their artistic/creative strengths.

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 graduated from Ramapo College of New Jersey magna cum laude with a Bachelors Degree in Drawing and Painting. Currently, I am pursuing a Masters Degree in Art Therapy at Caldwell University where I am also researching the effects of artistic expression on overall mental health and well-being. I am a twice published artist, have been involved in many gallery shows, and have been commissioned for multiple drawings. I have also completed multiple years of volunteer work (at a psychiatric center, a battered women and children shelter, and a head start preschool) teaching art.
