FAQs


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

 I like to establish a good relationship with my students in order to get a feel for their interests and learning style. From there, it’s important to assess their level of skill and what their goals are. I love empowering my students whenever possible in order for them to gain self-confidence and motivation to continue learning and developing outside of the lessons.


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

KCAD graduate with a bachelors degree in art education with a focus on design and painting.

Currently an art educator for Grand Rapids Public Schools. Before that, an art director for Kroc Center summer camp, and painting instructor for Arts and Carafes


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

50 dollars an hour minimum plus cost for supplies, or 90$ for 2 full hours (plus supply costs). This is unless the student already owns the needed supplies.


How did you get started teaching?

 Teaching is something that I’ve always loved to do! It’s hard to say when I started. I would say I started teaching professionally while pursuing my bachelors degree.


What types of students have you worked with?

 I’ve worked with ages two years old up to 90 years old. Ive worked with many students from different demographics with a range of interests. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What do you hope to accomplish with your paintings (for instance,  are you going to try and sell your paintings or is it meant to be a hobby that is therapeutic)? How much do you already know? What techniques do you hope to learn?
