About Jill

Greetings!

Would you like to learn to draw, use watercolors, or learn more about Art Appreciation? I have a Masters of Fine Arts Degree in Painting and Drawing from Washington State University (MFA), and have been teaching Art for 28 years. I have taught preschool age through college, including classes for teachers. I am nurturing and design lessons specifically for the level of each student. I like to make each session engaging and fun, and encourage students to practice certain skills between sessions. I especially enjoy working with students who lack confidence in their artistic abilities, people are amazed at the rapid progress they can make.

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 an MFA in Painting and Drawing from WSU(1977). While in graduate school, I taught Drawing 121, a beginning drawing class for 2 semesters. I taught drawing and other studio classes at Annie Wright School for 23 years (grades K-12) and studio art at Eastside Catholic School for 4 years. I am presently teaching art to ages Toddler-Kindergarten.

Painting

I have an MFA in Painting and Drawing from WSU (1977). My main focus in painting has been on watercolor and acrylic painting. As an Artist in Residence with the WA State Arts Commission, I developed a unique way of teaching watercolor painting to young people. This technique builds artistic confidence, and prepares students to further explore other techniques. I have taught ages preschool through college, as well as classes for teachers. I am presently teaching art at Bright Horizons Redmond (ages Toddler-Kindergarten).
