Have you ever said. “I cannot draw!”? I can tell you it is because no one has ever showed you how. Like anything else, creating art takes practice to produce results. Learn basic drawing concepts and the elements of design, including composition, perspective and colour theory. Many of my students are in amazement at what they are able to create. I look forward to sharing my knowledge with you.
As an art educator, I can teach one on one personal art instruction, group classes or workshops. Art camps for children is something I am in the process of setting up and these will be available during spring and summer breaks. Locations will be announced, as I will pick a place that is suitable for the number of people involved.
My specialty for group art lessons are ages 8 to 12. Classes for teens and youth, ages 13 through 17 are arranged. I also enjoy teaching adults. If you want to create a community mural project, I can facilitate that while engaging the members of your community. Let me know what your group interest is, and we can set something up.
I am continuously developing new curriculum to share with my students. Drawing, painting, pastels, charcoal, life drawing, plein air painting is some of the techniques we will explore in your art lessons. We will study the elements of design, colour theory, line, form, perspective, proportion, and various materials. We will discuss techniques of famous artists and will emulate some of those in our own work.
I am happy to take on groups of special interest. If you have a group who would like to learn something in particular, please contact me, and I will be happy to gear classes or a workshop in your area to your needs. Location will decided, depending on demand.
