Chicago, IL

Bgcheck Background Checked


My expertise is helping students develop a deeper relationship with painting and drawing while encouraging a dialog with the history of art and contemporary art practices.

Over the past ten years, I have taught a variety of painting and drawing courses. Having taught Painting and Color at University of Illinois at Chicago for a year during my graduate studies, I honed my skills as an educator. Teaching at Massachusetts College of Art Summer Programs between my BFA and MFA gave me the experience and skills to develop my teaching skills. My class is challenging and engaging for all students.

About Monica

I'm an artist specializing in drawing and painting classes for young adults and adults. You'll receive personalized instruction from a classically trained artist. My mission is to give Students the skills to draw and paint realistically, and express themselves.

David is an excellent artist who has years of experience in teaching art. I have been a student for 3 years and I have come so far as an artist. David has taught me how to see the world in a different light. I have and would recommend anybody who has an interest in art to take lessons from David.

"I wish I could give Sandra TEN stars; five are not enough. She's the best! She helped me see my pictures, and the world, in new ways. I was lucky enough to see her work with a variety of photographers, from students just starting out, to professionals who had been working in the field for years. They all had great things to say about her, and how she showed them how to improve their portfolios. Many of them went on to win contests thanks to her teaching. If you want a teacher that is easily approachable and very accessible, has a wonderful sense of humor, and will take you and your photos to a new level, do yourself a favor and contact Sandra. You'll be amazed!"
