Art Lessons

Like developing any new or unfamiliar skill, Art takes discipline and practice... but with enough patience, a positive attitude, and the will to experiment, students always find their groove! 

With ten years of teaching experience in a variety of settings and contexts,

I believe in the powerful and positive effects Art can have on all people of all ages and experience levels. In addition to teaching new techniques and materials, my lessons emphasize the importance of using Art to strengthen self-esteem. I do my best to amplify every student's unique voice by highlighting strengths, all while sharpening unfamiliar or "weaker" areas. 

I understand each student has their own expectations and goals for their respective journeys in Art; what works for one student, may not work for another. It's my mission to provide individualized and thoughtful guidance to help students achieve their personal expectations and beyond. 

Whether a student is focusing on a project that dives into an element or principle of design, learning the proportions of the face, or just exploring an unfamiliar material, all of these lessons contribute to having a well-rounded understanding. I take time to consult with each student before every project to hear their thoughts on what they're feeling inspired by at the time. We use this inspiration momentum to start most projects, while focusing on elements and principles of design, developing and sharpening skills along the way.
