About Ruth

I have been a teacher for over 35 years. My expertise is within the visual arts, hands on drawing and painting as well as the history of art. I have multiple techniques for teaching methodology depending upon the circumstances. I believe one on one is where one can really influence and help the student increase their skills and knowledge in a particular area of interest. There is a lot of satisfaction seeing a student become motivated and interested in their passion. I have been a teacher for over 35 years.

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.

Architecture

I have taught art history for over 45 years which included architectural history, terms etc.

Drawing

I have taught as well as studied for over 35 years and still draw for preparation for my own work.
I have taken life classes at The Art Institute of Chicago. I have taught drawing methods and techniques which include, pencil, charcoal, pastel, ink. Subjects drawn, are still life, portraits, perspective design elements. My students begin with the elements of design, line shape, space, color. Shading techniques are skills learned as well. Students are prepared for more creative methods after the basics are developed.

Painting

I have taught painting techniques as well practice the art as an artist. Students are taught how to use materials, such as the brushed and mixing paint. Watercolor, Acrylic and Oil painting techniques are taught before students can engage in creating a complete painting. Visual acuity is usually learned prior by having a drawing class previously.
