Teaching since:
March 2010

I am an art lover. I paint and like to illustrate books for my niece and nephews. I love teaching all ages, especially kids. I used to teach art classes and summer art camps with grade school aged kids. Recently, I have been a teaching assistant for undergraduate-level art students.
I am especially good at guiding people through drawing and painting from life. I have lots of examples of my art I am willing to provide. I have also studied art theory and history, and I am a good writer.
I'm open to doing different sorts of lessons, depending on what your learning style is. I can guide you in a step-by-step process with a live demonstration, or I can look at your artwork and critique it for you. If you are just starting out as an artist, I can give you an introduction to the medium you're going to be working with. Also, I can suggest all kinds of artists for you to look at.

I was the official art teacher for the Y summer camp, and for the school year, I am the art teacher for the YMCA's after-school program, which operates in three elementary schools. I teach a variety of mediums, and I usually listen to what the kids want to make, and I help them to do that better. We have a lot of fun.

Before moving for graduate school, I taught for a year with an advanced academic art studio for kids. Here, kids learned skills to make work that they would add to their portfolios for college applications. I also hosted art birthday parties, and taught painting summer camps and after-school painting workshops. We worked mostly with acrylics, oil pastels, watercolor, graphite, and charcoal. We also experimented with recycled sculptures.

I found this bird feather, and thought that the color looked beautiful next to a small orange pumpkin. It was a good still life for autumn.

I just completed my first lesson with Tabitha. I highly recommend her to anyone that wants to learn how to paint or to gain a better understanding of painting or drawing. Tabitha is an experienced professional with a wealth of knowledge. Her teaching style is excellent, she has a great, friendly personality & is super encouraging. I learned a lot during my first lesson & I can't wait until my next one.!
