TUTOR: MICHELLE CURRY

I am a professional artist, who loves to teach! I regularly exhibit my art locally, and am in my second year of showing in ArtPrize 2017! I have degrees in Illustration and Graphic Design, with a background stemming from 40 years. I am a Homeschool veteran of 22 years, (although my 5 have since gone to college and moved on into their adult lives), as well as teaching and tutoring privately and in class situations. I teach fine art skills, helping the student to learn problem solving, as well as growing in their self-esteem as they learn to communicate through visual art media and forms. I am very encouraging, believing that everyone has some ability to be able to create! This class is designed for a real induction into learning traditional, time honored fine art techniques.

I am also open to private tutoring in Art, and Portfolio Development and critique for College level Artistic Pursuit for Junior and Senior High School level students.
