About Kathy

Hello students!

In my lessons you will learn all the basic principles of drawing: line, shape, perspective, light and shade and composition. Also we can work with watercolors to learn about the color wheel, color theory, mixing colors and the properties of color. In addition, since I am a portrait painter, I can teach you how to draw a portrait including lessons on the measurements of a face and how draw the features of the face. We can work with various art materials including graphite, charcoal, watercolors and various papers.

Hello parents,

I am a former commercial illustrator having worked with both ad agencies and magazines. I transitioned into the field of portrait and still life painting more than 10 years ago and have representation in four galleries. I have a BFA from the Columbus College of Art and Design and have gotten certificates from the Staten Island Teaching Artist Institute. In addition, I have been fingerprinted by the NYC Dept. of Education. I am considered to be a very patient person, and I enjoy children. My approach to tutoring would be to scaffold the lessons so that each principle builds upon the former. I look forward to hearing from you and meeting your child.

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 been teaching a drawing class in Staten Island for the past 3 years. I scaffold the lessons so that each principle builds upon another. The lessons include line, shape, perspective, light and shade and composition.
