Maryland Institute College of Art (General Fine Arts)
I'm a current junior at the Maryland Institute College of art in Baltimore, pursuing a major in General Fine Arts with a minor in Culture and Politics. I have a lot of experience with developing portfolios and artist statements in preparation for the art college application process as well as developing a dialogue necessary for critique and concept development. It is vital, in my opinion, for contemporary artists to be well versed in many disciplines and in many areas of thought. I am committed to teaching the fundamentals necessary to be successful in the art field!
I am formally trained in Renaissance style portraiture. I have also studied color theory, art history (Modernism - present), relief printmaking, oil painting, illustration, hand built ceramics and hand lettered graphic design. I can also assist in developing a strong portfolio and artist statement.
My schedule is pretty flexible. I'm available most afternoons and nights out of the week from 2PM-10PM. Contact me to set up a schedule!

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 studied Renaissance style portraiture and life drawing at the Maryland Institute College of Art where I am pursuing a degree in General Fine Arts with a minor in Culture and Politics. I plan on beginning by teaching the ability to "draw what you see rather than what you know." This begins through observational drawing in graphite and charcoal. Next, I would move into the components of the face and body, culminating in the ability to capture likeness in both short and long poses. Concurrently, relevant Renaissance, Modernist and contemporary artists will be discussed.
