TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Five years of teaching visual arts at a New York City public elementary school.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My lessons include studio skills, art history, literature, science, world cultures and careers in the arts. But I place a special emphasis on drawing skills. If people don't know how to draw, it's only because they were never taught. Drawing teaches children to look closely at the world around them. It helps build their "visual vocabulary"--the collection of images stored in their minds. These images are then the basis for their writing. As a writer, you have to see something in your mind before you can write about it.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

One of my students just had her picture selected for the Brooklyn Borough Art Fair. Out of 400 submissions, hers was one of 200 selected. I'm very happy to say that, after 5 years at my school, my students are no longer afraid to draw. They used to insist on tracing but I have built their confidence and given them the skills they need to see like artists.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

My undergraduate degree was in Art History, with minors in studio art and history. I studied advertising at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. My masters degree was in Visual Arts education from the College of New Rochelle.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Prior to teaching I had careers in advertising, corporate design management, stock photography sales and training. I bring all my commercial art experience to my art teaching and show my students practical applications of their art skills. I live in New York City, love to travel and would like to live in a museum.
