About Linda

I tutor all ages from children, teens working on their portfolios to Adults, and have experience helping students with special needs including adults with memory loss and children with special needs.

Art helps people express themselves and grow. Art is healing and through the act of painting and drawing people remember things and learn to express themselves and communicate better.

I have taught painting and drawing and have years of experience as an Artist and Designer, creating my own Art, Illustrating books, working as an artist for Macy's, designing dinnerware, textiles, teaching privately and at schools including The Children's School in Brooklyn, where I worked with children in grades 1-5, some with special needs, the Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn Art Space, Court Tree collective and PS 3 writing and Illustration workshops. I also teach Art at HANAC Harmony Senior Center and the Brooklyn Museum

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 hold a BFA from Parsons School of Design and have worked as an Artist for 20 years. I teach Art at a Senior Center and at Brooklyn Museum in the Gallery/Studio Program as well as tutoring in drawing, watercolor and painting.

My goal is to help my students achieve their goals and gain confidence.
My experience includes Portfolio Prep and working with students who have special needs.

Painting

I teach watercolor and drawing at HANAC and privately as well as work part time at Brooklyn Museum and sell my art. My watercolors and drawings have been exhibited at Trestle Gallery in Brooklyn, The Dutot Museum in Pennsylvania, BWAC and others. I have participated at Gowanus Open Studios and run figure drawing at Brooklyn Art Space. I hold a BFA from Parsons School of Design and have worked as an artist for over 20 years.
