My art classes are very unique in that students are taught individually based on their level/experience and personal artistic goals. I am well versed in several mediums including: oil, watercolor, pastel, acylic,ink, and mixed media. So it's almost like private lessons in a small group environment.
I teach all ages. Whether I'm working with an adult or child I am so filled with joy watching students' artistic ability and technique evolve. Art is my passion and joy! I have so much fun working with emerging and established artists!
Carley is awesome! My daughter absolutely loves her lesson and the day of the lesson is always the highlight is the week. She always would remind me the day before the lesson to make sure I would take her. One time I came home late, she ran towards me to show me her work when I gexcited to show me her artwork done with Carley. Thank you Carley!
Carley is a great teacher. My painting and drawing skills have improved so much since I started taking classes with her.
Firstly, I like to know why the student is seeking art lessons. We discuss their previous experience and strategize a plan for reaching desired goals. We often sketch for the first class and talk about how drawing relates to painting. Again, it depends on the student because my approach is very custom.
I have a BFA and have been conducting art classes and workshops since 2002. My artwork is owned by private collectors around the United States and I've participated in several local community art festivals. I'm currently commissioned by OC safe homes for a special project.
