About Rebecca O.

Hello! My name is Becky, and I am a professional artist, musician, and educator. I am married to a retired Air Force fighter pilot, so we have lived in many places and countries. My main passion is visual art, especially with making art dolls at the moment. I paint, draw, sculpt, and photograph. I also make jewelry. I have played the guitar since I was 11 years old. We have a musical family. I have a MA in Education and a BA in Visual Arts. I was certified to teach Art Education until 2013. I have been concentrating on my own art since 2008, selling and exhibiting.

I have been teaching for about 17 years, though I am not teaching at the moment. I am currently concentrating on my art. I have had pieces exhibited at WKNO (Dec 2014), St. Francis Hospital in Bartlett (ongoing), and Sweet Peas restaurant (ongoing). I belong to the Bartlett Arts Association. The BAA will be exhibiting at Christian Brothers University this March-April. Hopefully I will have three pieces included in that exhibit, one of which will be one of my dolls. I would prefer to teach from my home or by Skype, etc.

I have taught k-12, college age, and adult students. I have tutored pre-algebra and studying for the ACT. I taught German to British students in Germany. Art history is also a area I feel competent teaching and have taught at the high school level. I love working with students one on one and having he flexibility to still do my own work.

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 a Bachelor of Arts degree in visual arts. I was required to complete drawing and design courses for this degree. For certification to teach art, I was also required to take drawing and design courses. I taught drawing to adults through kindergartners. Several of my high school art students won awards for their drawing.

Painting

For my BA in visual arts, I was required to take many painting classes in various media. I have had oil painting, watercolor, and mixed media. I currently paint and exhibit professionally. I was taught Sum-e painting by a Japanese friend. Sumi-e is a style of painting I have taught to adults and children.

Photography

Darkroom photography is a subject I love, but unfortunately do not get to do very often because I personally do not have a darkroom. I taught darkroom photography at the high school and college level. I taught darkroom photography at Flagler College in St. Augustine, FL. When I don't have access to a darkroom, I use digital photography. The elements of design and composition are similar to the SLR camera. I have some competency with Adobe Photoshop and love manipulating images on the computer.
