I can't say enough about Monica. She is able to bring out the best in her students and allow them to express their talent . Her bright outlook and encouragement allowed me to grow as an artist. She is like an art mentor that will allow you to flourish.

Lesson Details

Painting

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced

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.
