Hi, my name is Rachael and I have been drawing, painting, and creating artwork for many years, now. I won some of my first local, national, and international awards for my art back in high school and have been keeping up with it to various degrees ever since. I taught drawing and painting classes this past year at a local arts and crafts store and I still produce new paintings several times a month. I am a Grumbacher certified drawing and acrylics instructor and I would be happy to take on students. I have the most experience teaching beginner level adult courses, but am also willing to work with children. I love trying different things, so you are not only limited to acrylics, graphite, and charcoal. I also have experience with floral design, paper crafting, oil paint, and mixed media pieces.
I love exercising my creativity and helping others feel inspired to do the same. Art is about interpretation and style. So every piece of artwork is unique. I like helping students create an aesthetic environment that reflects the students' unique talents and interests.

I hope to meet students at mutually convenient locations, get a feel for their goals and expectations, and help them achieve the best results they can.
I worked for a year at Michaels as a certified art instructor. I passed a test that certified that I have the requisite knowledge to teach acrylics and drawing. I took four years of studio art in high school and recieved straight 'A's. I also took a fine art class in college were I also earned an 'A.' I won over five local, national, and international fine arts awards.
I am still working out my pricing system, but I am leaning towards twenty-five dollars an hour (excluding supplies).
I taught at a local arts and crafts store becuase the walk was convenient from my apartment and they were hiring.
I worked with mostly adults, but I also worked with children and children with special needs.
I ejoyed painting at Vista Arts in Rockville.
I would advise the student to think strategically about what he or she enjoys doing in terms of art. If you focus on positive goals, it is easier to achieve them diligently.
