Since receiving her Master of Fine Arts at the University of Texas at Austin, Jieun Beth has exhibited internationally and nationally, including her recent solo show at the ARTIFACT Gallery in New York City. She is highly trained in painting and drawing, which is demonstrated in her photo-realistic paintings. She has taught art lessons to all ages and all levels from private tutoring, volunteering to teach and in higher-education levels. She guides students to explore their unique intention to create by tailoring her instructions specific to students' needs and desires, inspiring students to discover their authentic voice and learning new techniques to further their creative practices.
Jieun Beth believes through the process of creating, people can be in better touch with their authenticity. By helping students examine their challenges from different angles and utilizing various techniques to solve them, Jieun Beth empowers students to become more at ease with their unique creativity and goals as individual artists.
I came to Beth with 40 years experience in printmaking, needing an introduction to acrylic painting. She had a broad variety of artistic tools to show me including creating/selecting colors, different brush strokes, and different approaches to portrayals (impressionistic, realistic and abstract). Jieun Beth is talented, fun to work with, and flexible in tailoring her approach to students' needs. I highly recommend Jieun Beth!
After learning about students' intentions, I tailor my instructions based on students’ desires. I recommend new techniques, mediums, and approaches through demonstrations. I usually let students to be in their "zone" to create, and I will offer methods to handle brush, mix paint, experiment with brush strokes, teach color theories, guide with perspective drawing, etc. There are various ways to approach painting, and I will help students find paths that suit their goals.
I received my Master of Fine Arts in Studio Art with emphasis on drawing and painting from the University of Texas at Austin in 2013 after receiving Bachleor of Fine Arts in Painting from the Savannah College of Arts and Design. I have various art teaching experiences through private tutoring, volunteer teaching and in higher educations. Currently, I am the Exhibition Coordinator at the Austin Central Library, curating exhibits, art installations and displays.
