Hello, I have my MFA(Craft), and BFA (Intermedia) as well as 15 years of teaching experience. I offer lessons to elementary aged children, middle school, high school as well as adults.
I ask my students what areas of interest they are needing assistance with, what they would like to gain from the lesson, and what areas they would like to push in their Artistic practice.
I am a firm believer in individualized learning, patience, and the importance of allowing discovery through gentle guidance and choice.
I gave my first lesson 18 years ago, and have many years of experience teaching with community programs and private Montessori based schools.
I have taught hundreds of children though these programs
Through my classes, students have received college scholarships and an increased confidence in there skills, and have expressed deep joy and determination to enjoy their craft on their own time.

Its my pleasure to provide this recommendation for Sarah. As the director of Education at BodyVox Dance, I’ve enjoyed having Julia on the teaching team for our summer camp we host for 3-10 yr olds.
Sarah is charismatic and creative, and she thinks outside the box. She has shown excellent classroom management skills, which is saying something at our Camp: each class is about 30 children, classes are back to back, ages vary form 3-10 yrs, and she was given a tight budget with which to design her curriculum. Children in each age group seemed to be very content with Teacher Sarah and left class happy and with something produced that they could feel good about.
Sarah developed a rapport with students, colleagues, helpers, and parents that is characterized by mutual respect. I hope to have her back for our camps in the future.

Superprof can also suggest painting lessons to help you.
Learning isn't a problem, fine arts lessons for all!
Taking abstract painting lessons has never been easier: you're going to learn new skills.
