Learn how to draw proportional and well-structured still-lifes, including academic and decorative layouts for the photo references and real objects. Practice different shading techniques from academic

Methodology

I believe in the importance of visual example so I am ready to provide the students with photo/video materials that would help understand the material. Also, knowing that everyone's approach to art is different, I have enough knowledge and ideas to assist everyone with their personal needs.
The lessons may be in the form of online communication, as well as video calls/ Zoom co references for immediate response and critique of the student's work. Having experienced a great deal of critiques during my art classes, I believe that thoughtful, soft criticism is very important for the artist's development. Nobody is born perfect, but we work on becoming close to perfect all the time.
Art history is something that I know in depth and appreciate as an important part of artistic journey of every creative individual. Lectures and tutorials may I clude the historical facts about the art technique/movement discussed, important features and rules formed in the past, and ways of building your art based on the "old ways"

Background

I am a second year college student majoring in studio arts and transfering to animation. I have been studying art in depth for 5 years now, and had a chance to learn from Russian academic artist as well as American modern artists. I have big experience in drawing with various kinds of media such as graphite/ charcoal pencils and sticks, pastels, watercolor, oil and acrylic paint as using mixed media.
Coming from my experience, teachers in the US don't pay much attention to the proficiency of their student in drawig proportional, realistic objects, however, it is very important for fire development of the artists. We need to know the rules before breaking them. My Russian teacher taught me everything about measuring and feeling the proportions, intuitively feeling what is the best for the drawing and how to enhance the reality for better drawing. I truly believe in importance of proficiency in basics and want to share the valuable knowledge with everyone who needs it.
Currently, I am volunteering as a visual arts tutor and have several continuing students, as well as many that successfully finished their projects/assignments using my help.
