About this pro

Private art and swim lessons for all ages and levels. I care for my students achievements and I always do my best.

***I don’t have a swimming pool. I come to your pool. Public pools don’t accept private teachers using their pool. Please make sure you have a swimming pool ready for the lessons before contacting me.*** Swim lessons are built around clients needs. First lesson is my opportunity to assess student.

I am open to explore different media after a few drawing lessons. I am a multimedia artist. Check my work on Instagram: renatarodriguesart

I believe that making art improves the quality of life. Creating something new with your hands is very rewarding and exciting. The look in my students’ faces when they finish a piece they feel proud of is priceless. Being able to improve someone’s life in any way is an honor and a blessing.

Learning to swim should be a priority for all children, specially living in Florida. I am happy to say that I have helped so many kids build confidence in and around water as well as improve stroke technique and long distance swimming.

    Renata is an amazing art teacher! She is patient, provides focused direction and is genuinely concerned about her student succeeding! She taught my daughter for 1 1/2 years doing private art lessons. Under Renata’s guidance my daughter created a very successful portfolio with at least 30% of the art pieces coming directly from her classes. How successful were the lessons? My daughter was accepted at 4 colleges/ universities, two of these being art and design colleges including some very generous scholarships! Renata is very flexible and is easy to work with so comes highly recommended .

  • Claire Rosie

    Very punctual and work with children with disabilities

  • Susana Audi

    Amazing experience! Very good teacher and my kids love her!

  • Douglas

    Very good with young children and easing them into lessons. As they gain more confidence she keeps them motivated and continuously improving. Have noticed a remarkable improvement and my son is showing confidence in his swimming, so much so we are considering the swim team. Will definitely be using Renata to instruct our younger son.

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

I have a couple of references for the students to follow after a brief drawing fundamentals explanation. The results of these references will show me where to go with each student.

The first swim lesson is my opportunity to assess students and build exercises around their needs. 

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

Bachelor in Graphic Arts.

Artist is residence at Lot23 WPBCRA - Drawing Fundamentals classes.

Teaching artist for Arts Integration and after school programs in Palm Beach schools.

Teaching artist at Armory Art summer Camps.

I was a swim teacher for Fulton Swim School, the top swim school in New Zealand for more than 3 years and I have been teaching privately in the USA for the last 4 Summers. 

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

$25 for 30 mins lessons.

*all lessons are private 1 on 1.

* group art lessons minimum of 4 students $30 each for 2hrs.

If I have to drive more than 20mins I charge a traveling fee:

$10 for 20-30mins

$15 for 30-40mins

How did you get started teaching?

Teaching art was through Center for Creative Education in West Palm Beach. 

Teaching swimming was through Fulton Swim School in New Zealand. 

What types of students have you worked with?

All ages and levels. 

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I show my work in local art galleries, shows and events. I really enjoy being a part of Continuum, a pop up gallery show made by local artists in West spam Beach.

I have a lot of success stories with kids that are scared of water. I am friendly and patient.

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

I guess you will only know after the first class.   I believe it’s not only the teaching method but the chemistry also that makes the student feel comfortable to ask all questions, make mistakes (what is a must) and have a good time during class (also a must). Call me and get to know me prior to lessons :)

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

No question is a silly question. I will do my best to get you where you want to go with your art or swimming skills.  Follow the steps and be patient. Everyone learn in different speeds. Trust the process and you will get there.
