I have taught art to teens and adults for 20+ years. Class is in a casual setting and gradually progresses to accomplish your goals. After the art basics, we explore color and different matierals. I add my knowledge of art history.I am fully certified to teach all grades in Massachusetts.
Thanks & let's get to work! JANE

While being on the West End Place Coop Managing Board they voted me to Chair the Community Relation Committee. We were in need of an artist and I had Jennifer Kadilak who was hired by Maloney Management Company as a Social Worker, also is our coordinater; she interviewed Jane to conduct classes for about three months. Jane was hired to teach, we supplied the necessary materials. Of course, Jane brought some of her own tools also. The joining community learned so much and the residence loved her. Her artestry talent was outstanding during this pressures time we had with her. Jane taught us the basics’ of drawing. Had she stayed we would have benefited more. I participated in all her classes. She is truly a terrific artist. West End Place utilized their available budget and the residents were sad the art classes had to end. Jane Staffier is an excellent artist, who truly knows her craft... Actually I am hoping to have Jane, teaching art in our community room again. Best regards, Angela Rotondo
1. Ask student what they want to learn.
2. Look at past work; start basic drawing if no past work. Show it's a learned process not magic.
2. Progress to color and painting asa I model it.
3. What student wants to try next: still life, portraits, landscape. Give a platform of accomplishment to build on for next level.
