About Brenda

I have taught art in a private school for 14 years and have given private drawing and painting lessons. I love all things creative and look for that in each person I meet. Not everyone will become a famous artist but we can all benefit from learning artistic techniques. I do not teach from a set regimen but prefer students to draw from 3-dimensional objects versus a photograph whenever possible. Each student is unique and so different skills/techniques may be introduced at different times.

I personally have drawing and painting skills that I can use to mentor students and believe that showing students as well as auditory instructions is to their benefit. I strive to make art fun in a relaxed setting sharing my love of art through drawing, painting, art history and theory.

Architecture. Through my schooling and growing up in a family of mason contractors, I am able to read blueprints and recognize different styles of building.

Art history. Visiting museums and studying art history in school and for my students has given me a broad overview of art history.

Art theory. I love this and base my lessons off of the elements of art and principles of design.

Drawing. I have taken numerous drawing classes and sketch often.

Painting. I have learned through color theory how to mix colors and have self taught myself watercolors and acrylics along with some painting workshops.

I would love to share my passion for art with you if you are 5 or older. I am available to teach after school and on Saturdays. Let's discuss what you would like to explore.

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 took basic drawing 1 and 2 and life drawing 1 and 2 in college. I continue to sketch and draw and sit in on life drawing studios. I have created numerous drawing samples for students while teaching the last 14 years.
