I have a Master of Arts in Art Education and have been painting and drawing for 40+ years. I can teach any age group, one on one or in a group, at my home, your home or in a public place. I custom design teaching content and methodology to cater to your specific needs and skill level.
My plan is to have no plan! While there are tips and tricks that apply to everyone, I want to personalize our time together and figure out how to best help you achieve your illustration/animation goals.
My teaching technique is to first meet the student at their level and then find a way of teaching that best fits and motivates them. Art is something that should be enjoyed, and even if it can be stressful sometimes to learn things, there is no better feeling than learning something new and working on mastering it.
My teaching method is Project based. I approach lessons by, after establishing the students experience level, introducing a prompt for a project. As we work through the project together I help my students problem solve as issues arise. I believe this interactive way of teaching helps students learn quicker and more effectively.
I love education. I enjoy learning and teaching. I feel that education is a two way street that requires participation on both sides (Teacher and Student). When I'm teaching, I learn things as well. I'm willing to teach anyone how to draw, how to write, or how to create.
I base my classes on a good mixture of what inspires the students, using the proper tools and non toxic mediums for the desired outcome, as well as a solid base of State and National Curriculum standards required at each grade level.
I like to start with the basics, such as the elements and principles of art along with reviewing and testing the materials. From there I like to develop a project with the student, were we can relate the artwork to different artists, art movements and techniques.
My lessons are more practice, because you have to feel and live the illustration, we will know different techniques then you can decide your illustration style. We will start with base forms for release our hands making different traces. Put color in our draw is not always easy, we will know about chromatic circle, complementary colors, triads of color and color scale.
Given the endless possibilities with art, I will work one-on-one with students. Based on their needs and desires, tutoring may consist of the following: feedback/critique, recommendations, resources, explanations of methods concerning specific concepts, etc. For example, if a student needs assistance in building a portfolio for art school I would go over their current body of work.
What's the point of learning if it's not enjoyable? My goal is to help my students with their personal projects and artistic goals. I'm here to help you develop your own artistic style using the techniques and tricks I learned in my years as an art student. I am mainly looking to teach those who are beginners in art, but I would love to share what I have learned with anyone.
We would begin by finding out where you are as an artist, And what you want the lessons for.
I base my classes on what I have learned and what I have taught myself throughout the years.
I'm a laid back instructor who loves to help beginning artists build confidence in art step by step. We would start out with a basic foundation of drawing basic shapes, shading and skeletal line drawing for the human figure. With painting we would first by learning to mixing colors, then coloring basic shapes with various brush techniques.
In the past when I have been asked to show somebody how to execute a certain technique, I always go ahead and demonstrate visually, and explain my process or way of thinking as I am doing this.
I enjoy teaching students, focusing on creativity first and technique second. While technique is an important part in my lessons my focus is to not let it snuff out my students ability to creatively problem solve. Creative problem solving is the core to the art field and will take the student further no matter their skill level.
I'm going to be your cheerleader first and foremost. Your art is your art. Your style is your style. No one else can create what you can create. No matter what level you are at, someone out there will find your art to be the most delightful thing they have ever seen and someone else will dislike it with a mad passion. The important thing is to work toward YOUR goal with your art.
Many people avoid making art because they think they have no artistic talent. Creating art can seem like a scary and unattainable goal, especially for those who are relatively new to the art world. I offer beginner-intermediate level lessons, providing the basic building blocks of 2D art, and helping students develop their inner artist.
I approach each class by teaching practical and technical knowledge in a low pressure environment mean to foster growth and experimentation with various mediums. I also encourage special projects focused on the development of one's own conceptual and artistic style.
For first time artists I would love to give a basic overview of the fundamentals of art and the very basics of whatever medium you're interested in! For more experienced artists, my method would be more critique based to help guide you through your personalized art journey.
I teach people of all ages who are looking to hone their skills in a particular medium. Our lessons will be project-based and geared toward either learning the fundamentals of a medium or learning tips and tricks to sharpen your craft for more advanced students.
My teaching approach is very visual and adaptable. Just as every work of art is unique, so is the way we learn as individuals. There's value in repetitive teaching of fundamentals. Great artists always remind you: "Draw what you see.
I approach with a very fluid and focused eye, but with a loose spirit..and all the smiles. I acknowledge how I study every line and figure, and appreciate that I have my creativity. I believe in taking artwork slow and steady. Patience is key in truly cherishing your devoted work.
my lessons are very stylish in the old age and new age I've one simple rule YOU CANNOT RUSH ART for one to learn one must teach like a blossom it must sprout before it grows lessons are very life learning and need of at the most focus
I would like to form a clear goal/goals that will be accomplished by the end of the class. I believe in providing an open environment for students where they feel comfortable sharing their ideas and concerns in front of the class and myself. I would like to get to know my students skills, strengths, and weaknesses and work from there.
I will teach you the fundamentals of Drawing such as figure drawing and Anatomy. In addition to that you can learn how to do caricatures and cartoons.
As an educator the primary focus is to create an experimental environment, one in which students are allowed to create an intrinsic connection with content. Allowing them to connect on a personal level and apply the newly obtained information to their everyday lives. This philosophy has transformative properties, allowing me, as an educator, to effectively act as a guide.
For an art class, I approach teaching by first demonstrating the skills and then aiding sessions of practice. Like with any skill, the more you do it, the easier it becomes. With art, the better you train both your hands and also your eyes, the better you can portray what you want.
My teaching approach is, philosophically, a practical one. I understand the value of intense instruction, but, believe that without being a good listener, I am only a reciter of methods.
I approach each class differently depending on the skill level of the student. If a student is new to art, then I start off with the basic fundamentals of drawing. After they gain confidence in their basic skills, I then introduce color and paint. Eventually, I like to issue out projects where the students can freely explore techniques to create a unique art piece.
I teach by example using a hands-on approach. My method is very direct and allows for the student to learn with actual practice. I give the students the tools to succeed and then give them freedom to create artwork that they want to create.
