Deborah Schilling Artist, Illustrator, Art Teacher
My service stands out, becuase I have been an artist all of my life. I grew up in New York, surrounded by the greatest art and artists. I studied at one of the best Art Colleges in the United States, in New York, The School of Visual Arts, I hold and BFA, and an MFA. I have worked as a graphic designer, Illustrator, Fine Artist and Art Teacher for the past 35 years. I worked as an art Teacher at the Dade County Schools in Miami, and today in Albany I have my own studio and I give private art classes to students. I teach young art students elementary age, middle school and high school, in every medium. I believe in teaching a young person how to draw very well, this is a very important grounding for every art student to be able to move into any genre of art that they will want to learn. I have taught drawing, animation, illustration,painting in all media and mixed media. I also work with Middle school and High School students to build their portfolios if they are looking to go to Art Magnet High Schools, or onto Art Colleges. I did this for many years in Miami and I successfully got my students into two of the best Art High Schools in the Country, The New World School, and The Design and Architecture High School. Many of these students went on to receive full scholarships to the best Art Colleges in the country. I also work with Adult students who are looking to get back into their love of creating art. I am an extremely dedicated teacher and want my students to achieve their goals. This is the most important thing to me. It inspires me everyday to work with my students. It is a passion as great as doing and creating my own artwork which I do everyday in my studio.
