The first thing - and honestly, when it boils down to it, only thing - you need to learn is how to see. An artist needs to look first and then respond, and I can really show you what this means. Drawing is seeing. Drawing is the first step.

About Mary C.

I am a recent college graduate with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. My main areas of concentration are drawing and painting, but I am also trained in printmaking, photography, sculpture, etc. Being an artist means being a lot of things. You are not someone with just a hobby; you are an engineer, mathematician, planner, risk taker, designer, scientist. The list goes on. I dedicate my life to problem-solving. This is what art is. I would love to share my knowledge and be able to continue to support my creative life by supporting the drive for success in others.

I have really no age limit in terms of students. If you are a parent looking for a teacher for a child/ren, that's great, we could have some fun constructing and working on anything from still lifes of their favorite toys to acrylic paintings that touch on color relationships. If you yourself are looking to strengthen your drawing from nature or learn how to build a realistic self-portrait, that's great too. I'm willing and happy to do anything from spending time sculpting with a senior citizen to discussing and working on conceptual painting with a student in need of more outside fuel and support for their creative fire. I believe that teaching to think like an artist is just as important as teaching technical ability. I've become adept at both of these skills in my four years at the University of Dayton, and I am so excited to share with and learn from you in return!

My daughter and I took drawing lessons with Mary, and it was a great experience. She adapted her plan to what we wanted to learn and guided us through the creative process. Mary was patient and gave great constructive feedback. I would recommend her to everyone!
