About Claudia

My name is Claudia and I am an artist and educator.

I hold a Master of Fine Arts from Claremont Graduate University (2011) with an emphasis in painting and drawing. Currently, my practice has expanded to also include installation and creative/art direction for performance. I hold honors in art history from undergraduate studies and have worked in museum situations that called upon expertise of dialog surrounding art history, contemporary concepts and practices in art and critical thinking. I currently teach at Pasadena City College and Coastline Community College. I have also guest lectured in painting at Pomona College.

I feel the first thing I love about tutoring is the connection that forms between the student and the information of the subject. Tutoring one on one allows a dialog to transpire that quickly deciphers where a student is stuck. Also, there is a direct focus on the subject and the setting is without distraction. This allows me to intuitively guide the student. I feel it is important for students to make the information their own for clear understanding.

I feel I am a very good art tutor because I have great passion for art and dialogues, historical and contemporary, that surround artists, art processes, art materials and the connections made through art.

I am very happy to work with students in their studies of art and art history. I believe creativity is in everything! I feel it is important to know the uniqueness of who you are in all you do.
