An artist might be: self-taught, formally instructed at schools or institutes of higher learning, informally taught or a combination of the three. I offer an informal home setting with a peacefully controlled environment (allergy friendly). It is individually based teaching with one on one instruction. All levels are welcome from the beginner or hobbyist to the career artist.
Students will learn how to be aware by cultivating the use of all their senses (seeing, hearing, touch, taste, smell).
Students will grasp the idea of how to see versus just looking. It takes more time and concentration to see.
Stimulate and encourage their imagination:
The imagination is what sets one artist apart from another. Creativity comes from our imagination, which draws
upon all our past experiences and knowledge.
Expression is the relationship between thinking and feeling and the ability to translate it into a two-dimensional visual image.
Explain art-related terms to improve communication.
Cover Elements and Principles of Art as well as the Concepts of Perspective.
Explore different mediums and learn the essentials for each or specialize.
Familiarize the student with styles from realism to abstract to help them find their own. (Cartooning and Anime are not taught.)
