In addition to many years of making art and a college degree in Fine Art, I have had many years of graphic design work, sign making and I also have stationery and product design experience. I think that lends a little extra creativity and thought when designing. I also have taught adults, children and those with disabilities. You can visit my website at www.AngiCreatives.com to see more about my services.
I love seeing the happiness in a student's face when they realized that they have made something that they never thought possible. I really enjoy being the assistant in helping the student realize their potential in a relaxed, creative atmosphere.
Angi is very knowledgeable, patient, creative and a wonderful teacher. I highly recommend her!
flexible lessons, wonderful instructor, very informative, and fun
Angi is wonderful. She is so very dedicated, creative, and focused on assisting me in meeting my goals. She is very patient, supportive and generous in time and spirit.
Angi's knowledge and talent are a value to those who have the opportunity to participate and learn from her. Even when working with a group, she gives personal attemtion to all participants. She can work well with a range of art levels. I would highly recommend attending one of her art groups. She works with many ages. She is also awesome at one on one art lessons. She meets the student where the and widens their talents.
I like to find out what their goals are, what type of art they like, what mediums they may like to work in and what their prior experience is. Then once that is all figured out, we can make a plan from there. I may like to start off with some fun warm up exercises.

18 years of work in interior design, sign making, graphic design, sales. 5 years in teaching art.
I stay on top of some subjects with my ongoing learning taking classes, watching youtube and participating in art groups. I make artwork as often as possible, even if it's coloring in my adult coloring books.
I generally start at $25/hr as a base, but look at each individual situation. If it is a weekly thing, more than once, longer than an hour, etc... I try setting up a discounted price. If I travel, I will have to add just a little on for travel depending on the distance out of my range.
I have always like sharing knowledge of any new thing I learned with friends or classmates. I guess you can say I was born to teach (or be a busybody, lol). But I started actually teaching when I was a member at a wellness center and they needed someone to take over the art and craft class. I loved it. Then I started having my 4 neighbor kids over to my studio a lot for lessons and the bug took over.
All types. Young and elderly. Some with mental challenges. I have taught after-school art at elementary schools since Spring 2017. I just had to give it up because I was constantly catching whatever the kids had. I wanted to teach smaller classes anyway. I also taught the 21+ crowd with a paint and sip company which works with local restaurant and bars. I have been teaching from my studio for almost 2 years now and I really enjoy this venue the best.
I had held an event with the paint and sip company in which we painted on wine glasses for a company bonding party. It was so much fun to see them interact with each other. Having them ask me for my advice and color choices (which I basically just guided them to choose what they liked with some choice questions) and then see them putting their ideas to work was so amazing. I love seeing a student bloom.
Come with an idea of what you'd like to do, but also remember that if you are a beginner, you will be learning steps to get there. There are rarely shortcuts. I will do my best to get you there as swiftly as possible. If you have no idea of what you want, that is okay as well, I have a small library of things and we always have the internet to draw ideas from.
What do I hope to achieve? What time am I willing to spend? What do I need to get to where I want to be?
