Hello! I am an experienced, enthusiastic teacher offering private art classes with a focus on technical foundational drawing skills for ages 11-18. Lessons will be centered around portrait & figure drawing, focusing on line, value, proportions, developing style + applying skills creatively in multi-media projects. Mediums: graphite, pen, colored pencil, collage and printmaking. There will be a curriculum but classes are tailored to fit the needs/ pace of each student. I am offering portfolio review/ development services for college-bound or AP Art students. Lessons will be remote (via Zoom) with an option to continue in person after the pandemic.
