About Dani

My college major began as an illustrator with 3 years of illustration courses from the Savannah College of Art and Design. I changed my major to Visual Art Communication and Design after moving to Virginia. I continued my education through VCU's school of art where I graduated with my BFA.

I have so many friends asking for art lessons that I decided to offer my services via the internet. I have loved the tutoring and teaching experiences I have encountered and received very positive feedback. I taught graphic design as an adjunct instructor at ITT as well. I specialize in drawing and painting (with acrylic), but I have a wide variety of art areas in which I could offer tutelage in. I teach using the fundamental building blocks so that you can continue to learn without my presence. I assign fun practice assignments for you to experience your new knowledge and to jump start our next session. I believe you learn more when you enjoy your creativity and forget that you are being taught.

I encourage feedback both critical and positive and never bill for a lesson in which my student is not satisfied. I am flexible, yet I do require a 16 hour cancelation notice.

I attended 2 of the best Art Schools on the East Coast. The authors of the Art textbooks for art colleges were my instructors. I graduated at the top of my class and have won design contests within each college as well as in D.C. I love sharing my knowledge.

Please contact me with any further questions you may have. I look forward to being creative with you.

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 was an illustration major at SCAD, then transferred to VCU where I continued advanced drawing classes while earning my BFA degree in 2003. I tutored an ODU student during the spring semester 2015. I have had numerous friends ask me to teach them drawing and painting over the last few years and have been encouraged by each one to take up teaching/tutoring.
I worked as a graphic designer for over 15 years. I paint and sell my paintings regularly as a side hobby. I was previously an adjunct graphic design teacher at ITT. I teach composition, perspective, drawing techniques in multiple mediums e.g. pencil, charcoal, conte, colored pencil, pen and ink, etc.
