Hello, My class parts from the idea that ANYONE can learn how to draw with the right approach. These classes are deemed for beginner and intermediate level students and anyone who wishes to work on their observational skills. -In the case of children, they should be 8 y/o or older-. Besides the technical side of the class, I also focus on building the confidence and knowledge through MAKING.
I teach through theory and practice. Each lesson we learn new skills and techniques while working on a drawing or painting. I focus on developing the student's talent and imagination to reach full creative potential. Studying at the beginner, intermediate and advanced levels.
First free hour is to assess where you're at. I'll ask you what you want to do and we'll discuss how you'd like to proceed. It's surprising how much can be achieved in just that first hour! I can help walk you through any challenges you are facing because I have faced and conquered many challenges myself.
My teaching methods starts from art appreciation, where students will learn about various art movements, engage in making art, discern Visual Thinking Strategies (a medium to improve critical thinking through discussions of visual imagery.
The class is aimed at beginners. Please send a sample of past art works (1-5) if you have any. We’ll discuss your goals and expectations to see if we’re a good fit. I offer step by step lesson plans, break downs and constructive feedback.
Depending on your passion and goals my approach will vary but no matter what, I will always work to establish firm foundations for technique upon which a greater creative freedom can be built over time.
As a high realism painter, my aim is to teach students a proper foundation of seeing and rendering accurately, how to handle paint, mix colours, use tools properly (brushes, oil, cleaners). With a proper foundation, the student can create a style of artwork with a proper technique.
Every class I will work on one watercolor painting, so you could get to know different techniques. I will start to do a part and after finishing that, you will do the same and I will explain possible errors and how to be confident to solve it.
My classes and lessons change based on the individual. I assess what your needs are and plan accordingly. Continuous feedback and positive reinforcement offered. I am most comfortable tutoring and teaching elementary grades; JK-grade 8. Will follow IEP.
I am currently taking a Graphic Design course. Before that, I received my Bachelor's Degree in Communications, with a Minor in Visual Arts. I am in the process of building my professional life around these skills and am excited by the prospect of using and sharing them.
Ma méthode est avant tout de prendre du plaisir et s'amuser. Ecouter la volonté de chacun afin d'aider à développer, corriger ou donner un autre regard grâce au savoir et aux divers support . Cela peut partir de "j'ai envie d'apprendre à dessiner " , donc connaitre les outils, les proportions, l'observation ... à l'évolution apprendre diverses technique, créer, imaginer, ....
I teach drawing, painting, watercolor painting, oil painting. For the levels: beginner,intermediate, advanced. My teaching methods vary according to the students needs and the level they are at, classes will be 2 hours and can be longer if on a weekend.
I believe in a "tailored" approach to teaching. I modify my classes around s needs and preferences of each artist, based on their individual creative evolution. What this means practically is that I offer a full spectrum of possibilities for class content.,i.e.
I am an excellent listener and I take assessing students personally. Identifying the student’s current drawbacks and where they need the most improvement is what I focus the most, and to help them excel their capability and performance. I help students understand math and art in an easy way by allowing to visualize and conceptualize key ideas in ways that helped me through my previous courses.
my teaching method will vary on what you need to learn and achieve. You choose the subject and the medium and I provide the guidance for you to achieve your artistic goals. Use your imagination or work from an image you would like to recreate.
The best thing about painting is that there are some rules and regulations, but the magic comes within your hands and imagination. My technique is to encourage students to express their feelings and emotions on paper. I believe everyone can paint you just need to be passionate and patient.
Learn through doing. I believe it is best to get in there and try things out. I provide demos and am always there to make helpful suggestions and critiques.
I approach teaching with a mix of theory and practicality. I think it's important to understand why techniques work the way they do; and even more so, how to apply them. I teach from ages 3+. It is never too late or too early to learn how to draw.
As a tutor, I like to get a clear idea of what material the student is covering. I like to help the student understand by starting with big concepts and making sure they can grasp the larger picture before moving on to smaller details. I enjoy teaching with a more active approach.
These Classes are meant for children between Kindergarten to the fifth grade.
Over the years I had a chance to study and produce Digital/Commercial Art in Academic and Industry environment.
My teaching method is based upon desired outcome. To understand the students intent designs the methods of instruction. My instruction can benefit the novice and the master, as my exprience ranges from the digital world of the corporate artist, to the colourful world of fine art.
As methodology I use small Instruments and easy teaching material made to foster having fun and learning at the same time. Children love to learn at there own pace so I aim at just allowing my kids to progress at the rate they feel comfortable with.
I base my classes on the visual exploration of art forms from the past to the present, which provides a framework for self expression through mixed media. My methodology to teach art is a clear focus on Composition and Imagination.
My lessons are hands on and I have a flexible teaching style to teach each student differently. I have experience teaching students with Autism and different behavioural needs. I try to connect my lessons to real life experiences to make learning relevant and enjoyable.
My instinct help to guide me to work differently with each student with experience. Having taught in University and Design Collages as well as children. I have developed a method were basic concepts are taught in most easiest way possible.
I like teaching small groups of students. Lots of doing and not so much listening. I will take what you have to learn and make it in to what you want to learn and do. I will give directed teaching with specific examples and then lots of support to see the way though to success.
I base my classes on focusing on the tools needed for creating abstract painting. Introducing the basics: how to prepare canvas or substrate, what paint to use and how to use it, how to achieve desired brush strokes, tools and materials overview, how to add mixed media, and most importantly how to unlock your creativity.
My classes are intended for the beginner artist looking to improve their drawing abilities. I base my classes on basic drawing skills, techniques and useful tips and advice that has helped me personally to improve my work as an artist.
If someone wanted to paint a picture, I would paint it myself first to write out the steps on how to do it, so then I can teach my student how to get to the finishing product. I would slowly teach my student tips and tricks on how to make their painting their own and make it so it shows a part of their personality in the painting to.
