I am a certified art teacher that is willing to work with all ages. I have worked with a variety of people and excel at differentiation. I am experienced in working with the special needs community as well as working with a large group of people.
I love art and have studied it for many years. I just graduated from UMBC this passed year cume laudi and with a 4.0. I have also received awards for my artwork.

First I get to know them and ask them what they want to learn to do.
Then I teach them skills they need to know to complete their goal and make it fun for them. I will have them do practice work on the skills and then do a smaller practice artwork combining the skills
Finally I have the student work on the final artwork themselves with as needed guidance from me. The reason is it will mean more to them if they complete the project themself then if I do it.
I have studied art at University of Maryland Baltimore county and graduated with a BFA in fine arts and a certification in teaching.
$30 an hour is my standard
$20 if you are closer to me to where I don't need to travel as far or come to me.
$40-$50 If I provide the materials
I get started by talking to the student and asking them what they want to learn or what they want the end product to look like.
I've worked with a wide range of students. I have worked with students from kindergarten to college level. I have also worked with a wide range of the special needs population
A family member had a painting party and asked that I teach it. We did a winter snowman painting but I allowed freedom in how they painted it. I had some stick right to what I was saying while others did a more abstract art work that had all the same elements but just rearranged. I worked with everyone as a group but also on an individual basis.
Look at their art and see if they have experience in art
How to make a color? (They should try to make the color first then ask for help)
How do I draw something ? (They should try a couple of times first and then as how and what they need to do to improve it)
