I am a licensed art teacher for grades k-12 in Massachusetts and have over 10 years of experience working with all ages and all types of kids. I am willing to work with children who just want to have a fun, rewarding extracurricular activity as well as with students who hope to push their skills and really be challenged. I offer group lessons during the school year, and private lessons year-round.
I also offer private/semi-private lessons for adults. Due to the time requirements for lessons, I will limit the number of private lesson students I keep on the active roster at any given time.
No two days and no two projects are ever the same. The kids really keep me on my toes!

When working with a new private lesson student, I will discuss the goals of lessons with the parents and the child. From there, we will set the expectations. We usually make a list of projects to complete or mediums we'll use based on the discussed goals.
I have a BFA and am working towards my M. Ed. in Art. I have been teaching for over 15 years.
The group lessons are priced per session - which is usually an 8 or 10 week session. Depending on the course, the prices range from $150-$300 for the full session.
Private lessons are priced at $35/session.
With the exception of classes for children in kindergarten and younger, classes are 90 minutes long.
I was always a kid who drew. I knew at about the age of 8 that I wanted to be a teacher. It was my middle school art teachers who inspired me to push my skills and showed me what an amazing thing it is to be an art teacher. I loved working with both women, and when it came time to look at colleges and choose a major, becoming an art teacher was a no-brainer!
I have worked with students from age 3 to 70. I have worked in schools and community centers, daycares, in my private studio, and even within the correctional system.I have worked in inner-city schools, rural schools, public and private schools. I taught for 8 years in a school for students with special needs, as well.
Chat with your potential teacher. A good personality fit is important, but you also want someone who can help you reach your learning goals. There are many facets in the visual arts world, and each teacher will have niches that are stronger for them. Find a teacher who can teach you the medium(s) and techniques that best serve your needs.
