I have done art my entire life. I am a professional artist. I did my MFA at Towson University. I have two BA's from University of Maryland, Fine Art and Art History. I have learned to teach online when Covid 19 hit. Students that really want to learn are fantastic learners and to get them to achieve their goals is a fantastic challenge. It makes me feel satisfied each time I manage to help someone find their direction and help them create their art work and express their thoughts through art. I also teach French and Italian since those are my native languages, my mom spoke French while my dad spoke Italian and I lived in Brussels for a long time and later on in Italy before coming to the USA.

    Edelweiss Calcagno is the most amazing multi-talented artist I know. She is an incredible teacher, who loves to share her passion and knowledge for artwork with any one of all ages. I’ve learned a great deal from her and still continue to learn more. I’ve enjoyed how fun and inclusive she is with her teaching. Her critiques are beyond helpful, and have given me the ability to make art in ways I never knew I could! She has given me a new way of looking at art that I will always cherish. Whether you’re looking to learn Printing or Sculpting, Painting or Drawing… quite literally anything! Edelweiss Calcagno can do it all.

    Thank you Edelweiss!
    I was very lucky to be able to be taught online which was very helpful since the pandemic began since I’m 15 I was nervous about the online concept but I was very happy with the outcome. I was very happy to learn more about printmaking, drawing and painting, you were a very helpful teacher and I will come back and take more art lessons in print making because I’ve seen all that you can do in printmaking and I love the concepts that you covered. I was really impressed in how much I was able to improve in my drawing and painting skills under you’re teaching. You really covered all the basics very professionally when it comes to the different types of painting and drawings that I wanted to learn and this is proof of how much you know and understand when it comes to mixed media art. Thanks to you I’ve realized how you can incorporate paint and printmaking into drawing and collage which opens up a more broad perspective towards art. It was also very helpful that you could speak multiple languages which was a big help to students who spoke other languages.
    Thank you I look forward to learning more laughter by you.

    Frequently asked questions

    I believe that you first need to know what are the preferences of the student, and from there the teacher has to be able to adapt and find tools to make the student go in the right direction. In art it gets easier when the student is a visual learner.

    I have been part time adjunct professor at Towson University and I can teach art online! I have been a teaching assistant for over 5 years at Towson University and University of Maryland. I also gave private classes to high school students and university students so that they could get better and pass their classes in French and Italian, those are my mother tongue languages.

    I usually charge $40 per person per hour

    I was lucky I was really good in fine art and I had been doing art professionally all my life so the transition was easy and inspiring, it came natural. Teaching French and Italian is also easy since I speak both these languages since I was born.

    I have worked with all ages students.

    A student was a nine art major but loved art and after taking my class she desires to declare her major as being fine art. 

    Make sure you like the ideas of the teacher, chech what type of art they do, if they use more techniques then they are better off helping you find the right way for you to express yourself in art. Not everyone is a painter or a sculptor or a printmaker or a digital artist, the lines can cross each other.

    Make sure your professor works in more than just one media. The more he/she knows the more you can learn. When it comes to languages the more you practice with a native speaker the faster you will learn.
