About Sara

Hello. I am a professional artist who was classically trained and am offering to pass those same skills along to you! Learn to depict form, values, color, compositional devices, and handling of paint. You will learn to portray various subject matter while developing your own vision and expression. I am comfortable adapting each student's personal sensibilities with concepts of the visual language of art and providing sources of inspiration for their creativity.
When teaching drawing, I employ various tools to help the student develop their faculty of observation to build confidence in the medium.

Do you want a teacher with a history of experience in the trade, or do you want someone who was merely taught to articulate art? I am the prior with twenty years experience. I've tutored children in small groups and have tutored adults one on one. I am someone who is going to work with you at your level with patience and sensitivity while making the experience a joyful one.

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 spent 9 years enrolled in art schools and have functioned as a professional artist. I also have spent time tutoring children for a period of one year and individuals. My twenty years of experience applying practical experience doing art serves as strength, as compared with someone who teaches theories.

In teaching drawing I focus on compositional devices, narrative of the drawing (subject matter), and encouraging the expression inherently unique to each student. Although my strength is representational drawing, I can easily work with a student who prefers other styles.

Painting

My twenty years of experience applying practical experience with painting serves as strength, as compared with someone who teaches theories.

In teaching painting, I can implement concepts of composition, color, and depicting form in a realistic manner, with drawing as the underlying support of the painting. Understanding color theory is very useful in producing results for a representational painting.

Wonderful tutor!

Sara was great! At the beginning of the session she asked me what my goals are, then she based the session on helping me meet my goals. She gave constructive criticism that can help me when I practice at home, as well as encouragement if I was struggling. She made painting fun and made the concepts easy to understand. I was inspired to continue what I had started. Sara was down-to-earth and very e
