About this pro

 I have a bachelor degree in Science but painting is my passion. I have studied and practice a great deal about painting, to be able to teach.

I have been teaching painting techniques to  children and adult at my studio since 2012. My students (majority children) learn about  watercolors,  color pencil, charcoal, and acrylics with a hands-on approach, I show them how to do it and they go home with beautiful art works. 

In 2010 I  became a member of Blackstone Valley Artist Association and Franklin Artist Association with whom I have exhibited my work and have earned awards.

The last 4 years,  at Hopedale  Schools Art Show My Students won  first prizes in all the categories, which makes me very proud of them, you can see their works at my  website     http://www.dcolorex.com/-students-art-estudiantes-arte.html

    My daughter and I started art lessons with Libia about two years ago. She is a true artist and an expert in her field. Libia instructs her students in all aspects of painting i.e. color, hue, value, shading, brushstroke techniques, etc. She is always encouraging to promote creativity in her students to produce their own unique paintings.

    Libia ran Community Art programs for our town and her classes were very well received with students asking when does the next class start!



FAQs


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

I introduce him/her to the class, I explaing them what is the project for the night, (the materials  and the subject are already on the table). I give the instruction to the most advance ones, that will work more independently in different  projects, then I will  show the new student how to handle the brush to achieve a particular effect, together, step by step we will develop the painting. Usually  we finish a work in a 2 hour class.  


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

I have taking classes at , Casa de la cultura en Cali, Colombia, the Worcester Art Museum,  and John's Kilroy Academy in Rockland Ma. 


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

I charge $22 per  2 hour class, I provide all the material, we ussually paint acrylic, and  watercolors on paper. 


How did you get started teaching?

In 2012, My friend's daughter, an eight years old girls saw my paintings during my Solo Exhibition at the Milford Town Library and told her mom: "I want to paint like that" They asked me for lesson, and we started as a trial,  We started classes in June, and  next March she got a first prize at the Art and Musical Festival of Graffton Ma.  The same year other 2 girls came to the class.


What types of students have you worked with?

My students  are from 3 to 14 years old, boys and girls, some ADD, Anxyous,  but  we all share the same passion for painting.

To whom it may concern:

It is our pleasure to write this letter of recommendation on behalf of Ms. Libia Goncalves.  Our youngest daughter has attended a weekly art class with Libia since September 2015.  Not only is this class her favorite extra-curricular activity, the artwork she has produced in such a short time is nothing short of amazing.  Over the past five months our daughter has worked with acrylic paint, learned different brush strokes and techniques, studied color and most recently began drawing portraits. 

Libia was referred to us by a close friend, as well as several members of our community.  She is an amazing art teacher; able to motivate her students to perform their best work while at the same time keeping the atmosphere fun and enjoyable.   Her genuine affection for the children is her art class is also readily apparent and a great comfort.  Unlike other teachers, Libia truly enjoys spending time with her students and interacting with them at their level.  

Libia is an exceptional art teacher and would be an asset to your school.  Please feel free to contact me at any time if you would like to further discuss Libia’s qualifications.

Sincerely,

Jennifer Bourgeois

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

To  hire an Art teacher, I will advise the student to check the  art work's progress of that teacher's students, if  all the show improvement, is a good teacher.
