About Marcelo

I am an academically trained visual artist and art teacher who enjoys teaching individuals and small groups of students of all ages. I like to design my art lessons in a case by case basis, taking into consideration the goals, interests and previous experience of my students. I can teach basic drawing and painting or a combination of both in a variety of media. I have several years of experience teaching at the college level in addition to teaching elementary and high school students. I have also taught classes in conjunction with art portfolio preparation for college.

At the present time I work mostly as a visual artist, but I am currently teaching part-time at a private art studio. I am teaching students ages 8-12, working on a wide range of projects with emphasis on fundamentals of design (composition, balance, shading, colors, etc.), working from pictures and still life, and with a variety of art techniques. I welcome the opportunity to teaching and tutoring a broader age range (especially middle school and high school students and adults).

I am interested in individualized teaching. It is my goal to combine my experience and diverse background with my ability to be a compassionate, enthusiastic, and intelligent teacher who will make a positive impact in my students' artistic development. In addition, I am fluent in English and Spanish.
