About this pro

Hello Art students

My name is Frances Camaccio,  I'm a qualified and certified art instructor. Teaching acrylic, mix media, paper collage, paper mache sculptures and rock painting. I specialize in abstract, mix media and surrealism.

I have experience working with kids and young adults, but also I enjoy my adults and seniors lessons as well.

My main goal in art teaching is to give self confidence to my students at the moment they are infront of a canvas; this sounds easy but sometimes a blank canvas is more "fear" powerful than what we expect.

This is the link of the art program I created for my community and also my independent art lessons:

Thank you.

"Art is not perfect, but beautiful"                           Frances Camaccio

What I do enjoy more about my work is to see a student growing as a fine artist and to see their accomplishments finished.
