Sarah is a portrait and landscape artist. She has a Bachelors of Fine Art in painting and drawing and has exhibited in galleries, libraries, county building and private venues. She has been teaching for 21 years and in private schools as well as for Clark County arts programs. She teaches art using the classical method of still life observation.
“I start each class with 20 – 30 minuets of drawing exercises (line contour, blind contour, etc.) and the last 30 – 40 with a longer observation drawing. The exercises are usually done in pencil and the longer drawing in charcoal. Each day I will have a verity of still life objects to draw, with a light stand set up to change the lighting accordingly. I will teach every aspect of drawing. The students will have homework assignments according to there age and skill level. When the student has mastered the basics he/she can move onto colored pastels and painting.
Just like piano, I know that anyone can learn to draw if they are willing to practice and put in the time. Drawing is so much fun for me. My teaching style is upbeat and fun. I turn on music for the timed drawing exercises, like freeze dance, we do freeze drawing! You will be amazed at how quickly my students improve and create their very own master pieces! I just posted my own art work on my Teach Me to Draw page.”
