Hello, I'm Stefanie, I am a professional artist who exhibits in galleries and a painting instructor at the Woodmere Art Museum, Wayne Art Center and Whitemarsh Art Center. I also teach painting and plein air workshops as well as private lessons. You can view my resume and portfolio by visiting my website at: www.stefanielieberman.com
I enjoy teaching painting and drawing almost as much as I enjoy doing it myself! I love sharing methods and techniques that guide students through the creative process in a relaxed and fun environment. I believe in learning through doing; you make mistakes, you fix them and move on... This happens to artists at the highest level of the profession. I look forward to helping you become more confident and skilled in your artistic exploration!
Very talented and fun to be around
Every student has different interests, goals and skill levels. I address what they specifically want to achieve at every step in the learning process.
I earned a certificate in fine art at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. It is a four year intensive program teaching the disceplines in drawing, painting, print making and sculpture.
I charge $45.00 for the first hour, $60.00 for 90 minutes and $75.00 for a 2 hour lesson. I don't teach 30 minute lessons because that simply does not allow enough time for proper instruction.
I was asked to teach classes at the Woodmere Art Museum in Chestnut Hill 11 years ago. I found the teaching experience to be very rewarding and well suited to my nature. I now teach regular classes at Woodmere, Wayne and Whitemarsh Art Centers as well as workshops for various centers and art affiliations.
I have worked with children as young as 7 to seniors up to the age of 91. All of my classes are adult classes, so the age range is very wide. Some of my students are professionals in other fields and others are hobbiests.
Many of my students have won painting awards and have/are ezhibiting in gallery shows.
A student asked me to drop by and give her advice as to what piece she should choose to enter a juried exhibition.
She not only got into the exhibit, her painting was awarded Best of Show.
Make sure the teacher is sensative to your needs as a student and not trying to push you into their idea of asthetics.
Think of what you initially want to achieve through painting or drawing and then ask how the teacher intends to get you there.
