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:
"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.

I Love the art my daughter brings home. The teacher is very nice.
She is an excellent teacher and artist.
She is an excellent artist and a great teacher.
It was a great experience working with Ms. Camaccio!
First lesson: the color wheel structure, then I move to the black and white scale
Second lesson: we work with lines, and 2D shapes
Third lesson: 3D shapes
Four lesson: comprehension of value
Fifth lesson: Self-portrait and face expressions ....
and so on until we start reproducing art pieces from the all times masters such as Picasso, Van Gogh, Da Vinci, Modigliani, Vermeer, Matisse, and more.
Then we experience with mix media and paper collages.

In 2013 I created an art program for a low income community in the area of Lincoln Acres. I was volunteering my teaching for this program for about three years, I learned and gained more than what I taught, since then I knew I wanted to be an art teacher the rest of my life.
I have experience with kids, young teens, adults and seniors. I also have been working with children of special needs
Right now I have a Solo art exhibition running in the San Diego area, this exhibition marks my return as a visual artist.
First to see his/her artwork and if the students feels connected with it, the probabilities are that the student will be successful and confident with the art teacher.
What is the focus of learning?
What do you think art is for?
How do you think that art can help in other areas of the human life?
