About this pro

I teach most 2-d media, (oil, watercolor, acrylic, colored pencil, pastel, and drawing, etc.) out of my own expertise based on my own mastery as a working artist, as well as my education (two art degrees) and experience stemming from 40 years. My art ranges from realism, impressionistic, through abstraction. I love encouraging and helping students to not only gain knowledge, but skill in developing their own style over time. I teach ages 10-adult, and Young people 18-under are able to use Artist quality materials, in house for free. Please check my website for more info: mcurryarts.com

I love making art...and growing other's creative gifts and talents!

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I teach and cater to the student first and foremost, while weaving in information about pigment, tools, and substrates, and techniques. In the beginning, I find out where they are in their knowledge about the media they would like to study, and help them to develop their artistic voice.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have a background in Fine Art stemming from 40 years. I studied in fine and commercial art for a B.S. degree. After raising my kids, I returned and studied for and earned with honors, an Illustration and a Graphic Design degree, (with a Business Minor).


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

For 10 weeks/2 hour sessions and Private Tutoring $28 (one attendee, per session).


How did you get started teaching?

I started helping out an elementary school art class, when I was in middle school, and have good memories. I taught my own children, as well as taught both kids and adults in church, as well as in an art association setting running workshops, classes, and private tutoring.


What types of students have you worked with?

Young adults, adults, and senior adults.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I did a painting party for a small group of family and friends! 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

I would look at a teacher's artwork, rather than a degree. Ask to see a range of their art, especially in the area you want to study. I would look for someone with a teacher's heart (many artists are good at what they do, but cannot convey it to others), you want someone who is a true teacher, who will not only give you excellent instruction, but also be supportive and encouraging. I would look for someone with broad enough experience, expertise, and vision, who will help to cultivate your creative voice.
