Cultivate Your Creative Side!
In an effort to bring art to the community through more than just my own work, I've taught classes privately, at galleries and studios, park districts, and after-school programs. I love creating relationships with my students and watching their creativity flourish, helping them find ways of expressing themselves artistically and honing their skills, and just having fun! Each student is unique, and providing support as they find their creative voice is an absolute joy every time :)
Content Based on Student Needs (all ages)
For a personally tailored experience to hone specific skills and get my undivided attention as an instructor, I offer private lessons online via Zoom or in-person (I can travel to you or vice versa). I can tutor in figure drawing, portraiture, watercolor, comics/illustration, and the foundations of color theory, composition, and techniques for improving your overall work. You can also book me for face painting, speed portraits at events, group art lessons, or for paint & sip/drink & draw events at a location of your choice. I will provide all of the materials, which is already factored into the rates for each.
$25 per hour, per student for all classes and paint & sip/drink & draw parties*
$20 per hour for speed portraits at events*
$15 per hour for face painting*
Any of the above services may be booked for a minimum of 1 hour
By Appointment - ongoing weekly or single sessions available
Currently there is a Comics & Anime class on Thursdays from 6-7pm via zoom (ages 9-13) and private classes spread throughout the week on a variable schedule. If there is a subject matter you're looking to explore on your own or with a group, let me know and we can arrange a class around your availability!

Speed Portraits & Face Painting

Doing some watercolor painting with my grandmother - she has dementia, but art has always soothed her. We had a great afternoon!
