with Dawn Harrison

Dear Art enthusiasts,  

I am very passionate about teaching fine art principles, painting and drawing.  I feel very comfortable with beginners, serious hobbyists or intermediate levels of painters.  My two strongest mediums are oil and pastel, however, I am quite familiar with watercolor and acrylic.   My 20 years of attending art ateliers and majoring in art in college have provided me with a very strong set of fundamentals, but truly it has been through self study, that I feel I have mastered them.  I have diligently highlighted and tabbed my art books and periodicals, watched my DVD’s so often that I’ve nearly memorized the  script.  I believe in “do diligence”  when it comes to doing all the exercises that each of my mentors recommended.  

I have noticed that many newer artists, appear to sign up for a painting class, without having much (if any) background in the principles and elements that make for a successful painting.  Mentioning concepts such as “Edges”,“Values”,“Depth”, “Composition” and “Drawing” can sometimes draw blank stares.

So, it is with that need for a more thorough understanding of the principles that are emphasized in art school and private ateliers, that I design my painting classes around. 

I appreciate being considered for the position of your  “Painting and Drawing Instructor”.
