About Elken

My undergraduate degree was obtained from Coker College. This experience included a course regimen that covered several different art areas including critical theory, photography, and graphic design. I credit that educational format, because that particular process of learning allowed me to personally obtain different aspects of each area and apply them to a specific direction of my artwork.

I most recently became a painter after years of contemplating whether I should apply my teachings with the use of paint as a medium.

My overall experiences include extensive exposure in art festivals, group shows and even local shows at the Georgetown Memorial Library (Georgetown, SC). My personal belief is that everyone can draw and express their creativity with the right positive influence.

Art itself is expressed in so many different ways, which makes the learning process fun, exciting, and is a Grate opportunity for anyone to experience. I have taught students ranging from elementary all the way to adult through after-school programs, summer camps and artist-in-residence opportunities. I love charities, fundraisers youth programs and non-profits because the invite me into their cause and I am encouraged to continue to impact lives through creativity!

My creativity is derived from life experiences and my love for learning new things. Although the awareness of my artwork depends on which creative area I am focusing on at the time, I am influenced by the different theoretical aspects within the areas of Graphic Design, Photography, Art Theory, Drawing and Painting. Ultimately, the teaching experience combines several aspects of these different areas regardless of the student's creative interest. My goal is to increase your level of creativity, but I can only advance your creative state with your help.

Students, you have already made the first step by reading about my outstanding tutoring services. Now, it is time to set up a session today.

Together, we can make beautiful art!

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.

Art Theory

My art theory qualification highlights the perceptions and applications of the artistic process and is a general prerequisite for improving your creative skill sets.

Drawing

My undergraduate degree obtained from Coker College included a course regimen that covers several different art areas including critical theory, photography, and graphic design. I credit that educational format, because that particular process of learning allowed me to personally obtain different aspects of each area and apply them to a specific direction of my artwork. In addition, I most recently became a painter after years of contemplating whether I should apply my teachings with the use of paint as a medium. For these reasons I feel that I am qualified for areas of Drawing, Graphic Design, Painting and Photography. Art and Creativity can be applied to any form of expression and understanding the technical aspects used within each art form enhances the creative experience, including the result.

Also, the Art Theory quiz was a refresher but my focus for tutoring will be on the general theories of art perception (art or ordinary object? self-made? Pop Art?
Cave Paintings? Bauhaus? and such). I have used this approach in the past and it has worked very well.
