TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I teach art to children after school in Westchester, New York. I teach grades 1-4 at our local elementary school and grades 5-7 at the middle school. I love creating art lessons, and I love the time with the kids.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I try to achieve a balance between directed skill development and a child's own creative vision. I teach specific techniques and provide the opportunity for children to add their own imagination to the project, to experiment with a variety of materials, and just to enjoy making art.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I'm happy two of my paintings of rainbow trout were selected for a juried show, "Call of the Wild!" at the Anderson Chase Gallery in Goldens Bridge, NY. Currently, I'm exploring acrylics--printing, painting, and collaging mixed media works.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have a Master's from Northwestern University and a Bachelor's from Kenyon College. I've studied art, art history, art education, English, and marketing/advertising. I completed an internship with Mona Brookes, artist and author of Drawing with Children, a few years ago at her studio in Berkeley, CA.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I live in Westchester County, NY with my husband, Jeff. Our two children are in their 20s, off on their own adventures. In our free time, we enjoy spending time on Nantucket with our family and friends. You can follow me here on TpT, on Instagram @ruthchapman.art and my website with my own art is www.ruthchapmanart.com
