I have been a student of art for my entire life and recently graduated from UCSC with a BA in fine arts. I have a great deal of experience working with children from past work as an art camp councilor and as a children's party performer. I have a firm grasp on the fundamentals of design and techniques of classical art practice and have gained valuable teaching experience as both a teacher's assistant in three introductory UCSC art courses and as a studio monitor, where I assist students at any time they need. I would really enjoy to work closely with one or a few students who are passionate about drawing, painting, sculpture, and anything else they're driven towards, but who aren't getting the creative stimulation they need where they're currently learning. I pride myself on the individual care and attention I devote to each student I assist because I am passionate about helping anybody grow in art and creativity.
