Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
  • Learning about art will be at the student's pace.
I teach classes on a variety of arts-related subjects: 
  * piano, sight-reading, song-writing; 
  * realistic drawing techniques;
  * comic book creations & anime drawing styles;
  * digital arts, Photoshop, graphic design.

I hold a Bachelors in Fine Art from Virginia Tech and a Masters in Art Education from Virginia Commonwealth University and am a former public school art teacher. I love teaching drawing, painting, sculpture and Photoshop to learners of all ages. I've been running my own piano studio for 10+ years. There's a special place in my heart for creative works and the artists that make them, especially fantasy stories and narrative artworks, comics and graphic novels.

Grades Offered
If you are a digital art student looking to work in Photoshop or a similar program, parents should make sure the appropriate program or app is installed and functional.  Please download any photos you need for your collage or editing before the start of class.
💡   Please log into the Outschool classroom on the same device as your art app and give permission for zoom to control your device remotely if possible. If you are using a hand-held mobile device for your art app, I recommend you ALSO log into the Outschool classroom on a second device with a student-facing camera. 

Depending on the student's topic of choice, we may look up pictures and other source material. I will curate my searches while we do our art research and only show the best (and safe) pictures.

For digital artists, I require that parents take care of helping students with installing apps and checking that they work or creating any necessary accounts before class. Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator are paid programs that require a subscription. Photopea, GIMP, Medibang, Krita, Autodesk Sketchbook, and ibis Paint are free programs that work much like Photoshop, creating and editing bitmap images ( *.jpg, *.png, etc.) Inkscape is a free equivalent to Illustrator, best of logo design, illustartion, and creating vector images ( *.svg, *.eps, etc.) Canva is an easy-to-use graphic design program. Flip-a-clip, Photoshop, and Photopea can create short frame-by-frame animations. 

For students who are interested in product design, fashion, or t-shirt design, I may show images from MY redbubble.com account. Parents may create a redbubble.com account for entrepreneurial students who are interested in creating print-on-demand products.
