Lesson Details

Drawing

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate

Want to draw your best friend, lifetime pet, or a flower you might have come across on a recent walk? Or, do you just wish you could record your memories and dreams? Well, as it happens, you can.

Drawing with me will empower you with a basic understanding of shape, movement, line quality, light and shadows, composition, perspective, critical thinking, and best of all, the confidence to draw anything.

My approach to teaching art is influenced by my teachers from grade school through college as well as Betty Edwards' Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain and Mona Brookes' Drawing with Children: A Creative Method for Adult Beginners, Too.

Hello everyone!

I am so excited to meet you and see what you have to say through art. Art is a way of seeing and understanding the world. Learning the basic tools for understanding and creating art will enrich your life, regardless of who you are.

To tell you more about myself, in New England I majored in Visual Art with a focus in painting, minoring in English as well. In Alaska I was home schooled throughout grade school, immersing myself in art classes, voice lessons, and the classical texts. I have have taught all ages, and a wide variety of approaches to drawing, including comic art. A few things you will learn from looking at my portfolio are that I love impressionism, people, texture, layers, and explosions of color.
