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 have both a BFA and an MFA in Visual Arts where I majored in Printmaking and minored in Drawing. I taught my own Design and Drawing classes for two years while attaining my Masters degree at SUNY Buffalo. I taught Drawing at Ramapo College as an adjunct Professor for multiple years including summer school. I have been teaching Drawing privately in my art studio for over nine years to adults, teens and children. My teaching is focused on learning through direct observation where I cover all aspects of drawing; from quality of line, tonality, shading and perspective using a variety of drawing materials. My students study from the figure, still life, and landscape.

Painting

I have both a BFA and an MFA in Visual Arts. During my six years and two summers obtaining my art degrees I studied painting. I taught Art classes at SUNY Buffalo while obtaining my Masters degree in Fine Arts. I taught Painting classes at Ramapo College for multiple years as an Adjunct Instructor. I have been teaching painting from my art studio privately for over nine years. I teach painting from direct observation and cover the following areas: color theory, old master techniques, shading and tonality, techniques in oil painting, acrylic and watercolor. My students paint directly from the figure, still life and landscape.

My daughter had a great time brushing up on her drawing skills. Jane was very encouraging and helped E focus her attention. I will be starting lessons with her too!
