Taking apart different modern at pieces and analyzing why/how the artist did what they did. Studying the brush strokes, choice of color, etc. The time/place it was created, and any social commentary.
About Melanie C.

I take great joy in bringing expression to the surface that the student didn't even know they had within them! Creating art is mainly about confidence, and I build that with each person, one on one. As they gain confidence, the techniques needed to create meaningful and engaging art come more easily. I have taught in a variety of settings, including my own art gallery and studio in Texas. I have taught children as young as three, and I helped a lady ninety years young pursue the joy of painting for the first time- she continued to progress until her passing at 94. I have worked with Alzheimer's patients at a care facility in La Jolla- art is so therapeutic and really engages people in a way that many other pursuits don't. While learning technique and practicing it is important, the process of painting or drawing is also very much about being in the moment, and enjoying that process! In a lesson, I introduce my students to a whole world of art styles and media, nurturing the creative process with lots of positive reinforcement along the way!

Melanie was so easy to talk to and took her time to explain the basics of watercolor in a way that felt really fun and empowering. I learned so much in a short amount of time!

Melanie is a very knowledgeable and patient teacher and is always encouraging with positive words to improve ones skills. I had a great time learning the basics of acrylic painting.
