I cater to providing art in the Inner City for students k-12 to students and families that may not have the opportunity to experience art lessons in a group setting or privately. I also encourage parents to sign up there special needs children.... as I have experience and master's classes in special education.
I enjoy creating new and interesting art as well as teaching and encouraging students to be creative beyond their imagination through connected lesson plans at their grade level....looking at things in a different perspective... Encouraging them to think outside the box!!!
Loves what she does
I asked about their likes and dislikes ....their favorite activities... I introduced them to artists that I think may catch their eye... And I first introduced the basics the elements of art the color palettes and color mixing.
I have been teaching K through 12 academics for 17 years....I've been a traveling art teacher... I have also taught art for teachers at USC Rossier School of Education and I went to Art School briefly at calarts in Valencia California.
I developed my passion for teaching from my mother who has been an educator and principal for 40 years... 90% of the jobs I've had since 16 have been working with children either in camp counselor capacity or as a teacher's aide and teacher.
I am work with students from preschool to college level and including special needs moderate-to-severe.
I would tell them to make sure that the teacher has a passion for students and the patience to handle different levels... academically and behaviorally.
What type of art they would like doing.... if they would like to concentrate on a specific artist and if they have a preferred medium whether it be sculpture, oils, watercolor, acrylics, pastels or colored pencils... And even jewelry making, mosaic and tie dye.
