Having an interest in the arts is interacting with the world around you. Immersing yourself with creative ideas and artists daily. Exploring new worlds, sharing creative ideas and collaborating with innovative projects is an ongoing delight.
Self-expression is very important for all of us to do. While there are many ways to do this, personal creativity and expression through one medium such as painting can find crossovers/similarities in other artistic forms that give us a lifetime of appreciation and enjoyment.

A few introductory insights as to choice of media and prior training/education for starters. What motivates you? Do you have a specific cause to promote? What are your goals for the future?
I have a BS in Art Education from the College of St. Rose in Albany, NY. I have taken additional art classes and continued to work in many mediums over the years. I have participated in local art fairs and shows of my work. I have taught art to many elementary and high school students. I have sold my art work and received awards. I prefer to work in oils, but have experience and academic training in watercolors, acrylics, drawing and design, ad infnitum...
I would ask $20 to $30 an hour, depending on medium and your age/experience.
St. Rose sent us to many local schools to work with many students of all ages.
I have worked with primarily kindergarten through high school.
My sister and I recently visited to the Berkshire Botanical Gardens and Norman Rockwell's home in Massachusetts. Very inspiring!
You must have desire and a good work ethic to learn as much as you can from any teacher you hire.
What significance and purpose does your art have to you? How has art enhanced your life? Can you see a way forward to an art career, further training and self-development?
