Experimenting with materials in layers and mix. Emotional response to materials and of course, gesture. Movement and vision experiments with the materials. Pouring, splatting, seeing, not seeing, sprinkling, flinging. Careful and neat; messy and careless. The willingness to just go in and have the delight of image come back to you.
I have two graduate degrees: one in Music and the other in Dance and Theater studies.
My undergraduate degree is from The Juilliard School, in Dance.
I've taught children and grown ups for many years. I have a strong performing career and love the way teaching keeps me in a giving and learning place.
*** Lesson Details ***
With beginning students I am very laid back and patient and believe strongly that in the play of games and experiments technique will develop and manifest. As the student becomes more advanced I become more demanding as do the materials.
As an Acting teacher I have the capacity to take students along all the way to professional and beyond. I'm a member of the Actors Studio, the performing unions and ha
For Dance, I have a wide knowledge and can teach several forms as well as history and materials. I also teach Ballet and many forms of Modern Dance. I adore teaching dance composition. To help a dance student make their own dances is very fulfilling. I also teach choreography or composition.
One of the aspects of dance composition that has recently captivated me is the composing of sound and music for the dance that is also being made. Using software, we can explore electroacoustic as well as language and text collage as sound score for your dance. It is super fun!!!
For the Visual Arts I teach Abstract Painting as well as Installation and Performance Art.
*** Studio Equipment ***
I have supplies and space. Visual Art students need to contribute to materials by finding or purchasing whatever they like and adding to the mix. My students are welcome to use what I have here and I am always adding materials. Many people throw away materials that are perfectly good for art making so keep your eyes open and you'll find all kinds of good things. Visual Art students need to book a 2 hour minimum and I will lower the price if you just let me know you need it.
My fees: I start at a higher fee and after you've been a regular student we can lower the fee for you if you need.
*** Travel Equipment ***
just a space to work in - we can create a work space out of any space.
*** Specialties ***
In dance I teach classical ballet principles for beginners or those who are returning and want to work carefully and privately. I teach from the tradition of Alfredo Corvino's principles of relationship to organic forms and structures for sound development. I studied with Mr Corvino for years and continue to study with Ernesta Corvino.
For acting I teach a combination of classical acting technique with American sense memory and relaxation skills. I am well versed in the teachings of Lee Strasberg and then spent time in London to 'fill in the cracks' of my training with analytical skills as well as the various european influences that the Royal National embrace.
I teach creative discovery in combination with classical devices so the student can discover their own artistry while learning actual classical devices for accomplishing specific goals.

Want to learn how to draw and paint and you don't know where to start? Interested in improving your drawing skills? I will help you to train your eye to easily see shadows/light transition to create shapes and volumes. You will master useful drawing and painting techniques that will allow you to express your vision. I'm working with graphite, charcoal, pen and ink wash for drawing and oil materials for painting. Shoot me a message to see if we're a good match!
My students can expect to improve week to week in their drawing and painting techniques. While gaining knowledge of the fundamental principles of perception—light, plane-structure, tonal value, perspective, proportion—students will learn to construct images that realistically and accurately interpret objects in space. This solid foundation will enable students to express their personal creative vocabulary more clearly and effectively.
I teach students of all different ages and experience levels.
My personal passion is realism in classical and contemporary art but I firmly believe that great technique is essential to any and every style. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better artist!

I am a classically trained artist and I teach traditional methods of representational drawing. I’ve taught at several local ateliers as well as internationally through the State Department’s Art In The Embassies program. I can help you learn about perspective, line, volume, and composition in an a way that is easy to understand. My teaching style is rich with experience and information but also very low key and unintimidating. Also— I’m really fun! Come draw with me!
For both drawing and painting, I lead my students thr
Additional note: I provide materials for beginning painters so that you don’t have to invest in paint and brushes until you know for sure that you want to continue with it. I think that makes it easier for people to get started.
I also teach small group lessons (2-3 people) so message me for that pricing if you have a few pals you want to bring with you!

I believe it is important to start with the basics and work our way up to creating realistic images. We will examine:
-Light and shadow
-Gradients and edges
Creating still life drawings is a great way to practice different textures and forms, so I will be setting up scenes to draw from. Before we begin, I will want to review your work and discuss what you want to accomplish as well.
I'm an easy going, fun person that is passionate about technical ability. I will offer constructive critique throughout the process because I want you to learn!
Please message me with any questions, thanks!
I have taught drawing at the Decorus Atelier of Figurative Art for four years. I completed my Bachelors of Fine Arts training at The School of Visual Arts where I studied with artists such as Steven Assael, and Marvin Mattelson. I won the Chairman's Merit Scholarship and was also selected as a finalist for the 2014 and 2015 Williams Prize in Drawing.
She has shown in various venues and art galleries located throughout the United States. Her work and exhibitions have been featured in several articles and periodicals including The Asbury Park Press, The Hartford Courant, Art Info, and in The New Haven Register, and American Art Collector magazine.
Each individual drawing or painting exemplifies her sense of curiosity and a meticulous attention to detail. Her main focus is creating works on paper that feature her love for the figure and portraiture. She prefers to work from life.
I have been interested in drawing since I was 5, and if you are as passionate to learn how to draw, I am here to help you feel confident to get the basics down.
