About Pamela

I have a Bachelors of Fine Arts from Rhode Island School of Design. I'm an artist and illustrator and I love showing people about all the ways art and design affect us. I grew up in Massachusetts and went to college at RISD, where I was also a teaching assistant for the summer pre-college program. I've also taught observational sketching classes to middle school-aged kids.

I think the most important skill for a good artist is knowing how to see things. I have not done one-on-one tutoring before, but I love the idea of getting to know my students personally and help them become better artists in a way that caters to their own artistic sensibility.

I am an excellent observational painter and draftsman, honest but gentle critic. My preferred mediums are graphite, charcoal, ink, acrylic, gouache, and oils. Also I'm proficient with Adobe Creative Suite and image editing.

I am available throughout the week, but I prefer weekday afternoons.

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 a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Rhode Island School of Design, and many years teaching weekend art classes at a local Chinese Sunday school. My education included many hours of studio classes and critiquing sessions that helped shape my personal philosophy about the importance of art education, and my teaching experience has given me a lot of experience talking to children. My portfolio can be viewed on request.
