Marywood Univeristy (Art Administration)
I myself took private lessons from 5th grade until I graduated high school. From there I went to Marywood University and got my Bachelors in Art Administration and a minor in Art History. I took painting and drawing classes every semester of college.
I have worked with every medium, my specialty is Acrylic, but I am well practiced in all. During college I also interned at 2 galleries and the Lackawanna Historical Society. I am currently working for the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh. I teach kids art when they ask, I am also starting a monthly art class for pre- teens and teens that will be held at the library.
I think art is such a good thing for people to learn. It allows you to express yourself, helps you to develop discipline and determination to hone a craft, and it is a fun way to just let your imagination run wild. I love to watch my students develop their own interpretations of the fundamentals of art. Watching them come into their own and find their creative voice is a great experience to witness.
With a Bachelor's in Art Administration and a minor in Art History, I have a well rounded and firm understanding of how the art world works today, and I have an understanding and have practiced the techniques of the past. I have been drawing and painting for over 15 years. I have sold 4 pieces, been commissioned multiple times to do work for others, and I have been tutoring art on and off for two years.

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.
I have been drawing for over 15 years. I start off by teaching the basics of shading, apply that then to simple objects such as a sphere or block shape. The next step is to learn crosshatching, hatching and other shading techniques. Lessons will go deeper into the world of drawing with a slight recap of the previous lesson. I think it is important to have the students draw at least ten minutes a day to keep them practicing what they learn in between lessons. I have been teaching kids how to draw for two years.
I have been painting for over 10 years. I have sold multiple pieces, been commissioned to paint twice. I have a bachelors in Art Administration and a minor in Art History. I have taken college level classes in oil colors, advanced painting, and figure painting. The first medium I would introduce to a student would be water colors, it is an easy way to learn to mix colors. I would start the student off only with primary colors so that they learned how to mix colors. Acrylic is my strongest medium, but I am well practiced in oil colors, watercolors, and mixed media.
