I obtained my teaching certificate in 2006 and gradually discovered that providing private instruction is my supreme element.  I also discovered that I'm a hands-on learner - more so than I am a visual or auditory one. Hands-on learners make up a rather small percent of the population - one whose needs are easy to overlook. I make it my job to support students who need to do something in order to understand it and I do this by way of having you imitate what I do. Though imitation and repetition are my most obvious pieces, I make my lessons fun and exciting as well. Everyone can be (and already is) an actor, a musician, a skille ... View Profile

I’ve been creating art since I was seven years old.I have studied a great deal of different kinds of fine art and graphic design as well . ​​​​​In my paintings, I am concerned with the act of relationship, with the self expressed through the process of painting. I am Ahlam Homedan, an abstract expressionist artist. My creative process is about connecting to my soul, my spirit and passion. The way I start my unique style of "drip painting" is by setting my canvas on the floor and allow the paint to drip from the paint cans. I give the paint the chance to be mixed and merged on canvas surface, and by several shapes of paint brushes I crea ... View Profile

Hi, my name is Shanee and I am an art Junky. I love All Things Art. As a matter of fact, I see the world through an artistic lens which means I see the art in everything. I am a self-taught artist and have been doing it since I could walk. I  just recently started teaching and I can honestly say that it saved my life. I was bored with work and creating this company makes living a meaningful and passionate life possible. I believe that I can help others tap into their creativity and have fun doing it. I seriously don't believe that there is such a  thing as bad artwork, there is something to admire in it all.  ... View Profile

I tailor my curriculum to the individual technical and conceptual needs of each student that I work with during a given instructional cycle. I think it is critical to immediately expose a student to the importance of the work being created by artists, designers, writers and hybrid creatives who are producing now. Then I chronologically work backwards. After an initial introductory session, I can usually map out a course of study for the student if they provide me some examples of what they are currently working. I believe in personal research paired with daily practice. One of my strengths lie in portfolio development and reviewing, and ... View Profile
