I have 8 years of teaching experience in grades ranging from 2 years old to Kindergarten. I also teach private art lessons for adults and children and I host private paint parties for adults and children. I also do personalized pet paintings and custom artwork upon request.
My teaching style consists of structure and discipline so my students are able to learn by example and work independently. I focus on allowing my students to express themselves creatively while being guided and given the proper atmosphere to succeed on their own.
I have received academic scholarships from the Augustus Society during my college education in the 1990's. I have also been awarded the "Judge's Choice" award for a high school art contest. I was on the Dean's Honor Roll in high school and first year of college.
I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of Nevada Las Vegas with an Art Major and Communications Minor. I also have a CDA in early childhood education I have a substitute teaching license in the stare of Nevada
I have always enjoyed art and I love helping others express their creativity. Since I started my teaching career 8 years ago, I have developed an interest in teaching art to all ages. I also enjoy hosting art exhibits with student artwork that helps benefit local charitable organizations.
