Daniel Roemmelt Artist
My passion for art allowed me a terrific career as an arts educator. I taught painting, drawing, art history and various design courses in a high school setting first and then ended my career in a university setting teaching many of the same courses. What I look for in a student is the desire, interest and passion. From that foundation I can teach the necessary skills to becoming a more creative individual. My teaching style is nurturing, supportive, encouraging and positive.

I look forward to working with you and helping you discover the artist within.

I knew from the time I took my first high school art course that I wanted to one day teach. I wanted to share that joy and passion that art brought to my life with others.
What types of students have you worked with?
I have worked with all ages from 6 year olds to senior citizens. I find pleasure with each of these groups.
Describe a recent event you are fond of.
I had the opportunity in my last university position to train and supervise future art teachers. I gave me great pleasure to give back to a profession that had been so good to me.
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
Be sure that this teacher is also and artist. Not all art teachers create their own work. Those who can do, those who can't teach. This is how the adage goes. I disagree entirely. An effective teacher knows first hand of what he speaks.
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
What do you really hope to accomplish? Is this love of art just for pure joy and relaxation? Or do you have higher goals? Might it be a career, or a paying hobby? Think this through or include that in your initial conversation with this potential instructor.
