BFA at UTA, 10+ yrs teaching K-12 Private Art Lessons for Public and Home Schooled Children, including Adults. Art Teacher at a Charter School.

Methodology

Think drawing is a gift that has to come naturally? You might be surprised to see that drawing is a skill that can be developed with practice. You can learn how to draw utilizing techniques that teach you how to draw what you see, not what you think you see.

I believe in developing the inherent talent that everyone possesses. Finding strengths, while developing a "skill set" to successfully create art in whatever medium (sketch, charcoal, acrylic, pastels, etc.) you wish to explore and subject matter that includes, but not limited to, Landscapes, Portraits, Figure, Still Life, Animation, Animals, Perspective, and Anamorphic Art.

I design my lessons specifically to the student and don't believe in a cookie cutter approach towards teaching.
Each student is unique and special.

To see samples of my Private Students, as well as my Charter Students Artwork, I have a website @ InsideTheOutline.com.

*I also post step by step instructions for my Art 1 & Art 2 students projects, as well as insights and tips for aspiring artists.

I look forward to be given the opportunity to awaken the artist inside of you or your children!

Background

I’ve studied privately since I was 7 years old. 
I have 2 certificates: Fashion Design & Interior Design from Bauder Fashion College in Arlington, Texas, a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from The University of Texas in Arlington.
I was a “Clean Up Animator” for Wong Studios for 5 years and participated in Art Shows in Hollywood and LA areas with great success.

I got married and shortly thereafter, gave birth to boy/girl twins and stayed at home to raise them. 
By far, that is the most important creation of my entire life. 

When my kids went to Elementary School, I took over the “Meet the Masters” program for K-6th graders. I redesigned the program,  with my own slide show that consisted of 60-70 pictures of the Artists work. I held 4 assemblies (K, 1-3, 3-4, 5-6) for 700 students with 6-7 different Master Artists each year. I taught the Art Project related to the Artist, in addition to creating 4 Master Samples of each Art Project, for each level, for the School. I painted mural sized backdrops for the Schools Musicals every year. I accumulated 800 service hours, each year, during the 7 years my kids attended. I was given the “2012 Honorary Service Award” from the State of California.

I began a business called “Art Ala Carte” teaching Private Art Lessons to Home School & Public School Students in 2008, in the comfort of their homes, with all supplies included, to the present day.

The mediums I teach are Sketching, Charcoal, Oil Pastels, Chalk Pastels, Colored Pencils, Watercolors, Acrylic, & Pen and Ink, in a variety of subjects that include, but not limited to, Still Life, Landscapes, Animation, Portraits, Figure Drawing, Anamorphic Art, Animals, Perspective, Maps, and State Projects.

I’ve created and taught Art Projects/Lessons for VBS’s throughout the area. 

I began teaching at a Charter School, 5 years ago, offering Beginning Art, Art 1, & Art 2 classes (18 students per class) with great success. I create new lesson plans and projects every year, so no lesson plans or projects are repeated. 

At “Home School Coaches,” I offer accredited classes and private lessons to Charter School Members from Sky Mountain, Sage Oak, California Enrichment Academy, Inspire, Gorman, Excel, & Valiant.
My students report regularly to their Education Specialist to show their artwork, the “skill sets” they’re learning, and their progress.

Some of my students have been accepted to Ryman Arts Academy, while others are pursuing a BFA degree.

In addition... I do have experience teaching children with ADD, ADHD, Tourettes, Visual/Motor Skills, & OCD.
