I am a young but experienced art teacher/professor based in The Heights, Houston TX. I currently teach Art & Design at the college level, but have enjoyed teaching all ages of art lovers.
I specialize in new learners or people who feel new to art-making. I feel I possess an ability to put people at creative ease even when they don't feel that is possible. I can teach drawing, cartooning, design, oil painting, watercolor painting, gouache painting, just about any painting. I am great with mixed materials and come to the students prepared with materials on the first day of class. I can also teach basic Adobe Photoshop and basic adobe illustrator- which are such interesting programs to learn.
In the past I've helped students work on their portfolios to get into magnet schools and Colleges and really enjoy doing this work. I am passionate about the future of the arts and love introducing students to all that Houston has to offer via museums, galleries, print shops large and small. If you're looking for an instructor that can find the best in their students and put their anxieties at ease, I am your teacher.

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've taught drawing for 9 years at the Art Institute of Houston. My drawing abilities, both realistic and expressive, may be seen upon request.
I have a Masters Degree in Painting from The American University based in DC. However, my training was received through the 2-year italy program. So, in addition to my degree in illustation, I have an MFA in Painting from The American University's program abroad. I have been teaching painting for nine years outside of graduate school as well as building curriculum for painting curriculum in colleges.
