About Kat

I believe that art is about expression and freedom and I believe that art is a discipline. Creating something great is about finding the balance between technique and style. My courses are set up to move through the techniques you need to build a strong foundation while I work to incorporate your personal style and goals into each step of the process so that you can actively see improvement in the art that you love to make. Through the course you will do weekly warm up sketches, keep a sketchbook to practice with all week (provided by me) and create a finished, portfolio ready piece of art on a monthly basis.

I studied Visual Development at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco and I hold a Washington State Teaching Certificate. I have been teaching children ages 5-18 in various subjects for nearly ten years. I am currently accepting students of all ages. I will start all of my students off in a Drawing and Composition curriculum that we will move through at a pace personalized to you. From there we can branch into focuses of your choosing.

Art history, color theory, drawing, painting, portraits, inking, technique, graphite pencil, charcoal, figures, still life, colored pencils, water color, acrylic, pens, realism, abstract, perspective, art theory, comic art, cartooning

Let me know what you're interested in and I will build a fantastic class just for 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 have training and practical experience in the concepts of perspective, line quality, chiaroscuro, conturing, direct drawing and other essential techniques through my master's program at the Academy of Art University. I also have a Washington State Teaching Certificate and have both classroom and pullout teaching experience. I believe that if an art student has a solid technical foundation, they will be most successful in developing their own artistic style.

Painting

I have training and practical experience in the water color, acrylics, guache, oil paints, mixed media and digital painting through my master's program at the Academy of Art University. I also have a Washington State Teaching Certificate and have both classroom and pullout teaching experience. I believe that if an art student has a solid technical foundation, they will be most successful in developing their own artistic style.
