I'm Eileen, an art educator with a background in graphic design. Since 2018, I have been teaching drawing and painting and mixed media workshops at the South Shore Art Center to grades K-6th. For two and a half years I worked as a museum educator at the Hofstra University Museum of Art. I am currently pursuing a Masters in Art Education at Adelphi University and a NYS Visual Arts K-12 Certification (pending May 31, 2024).
I am a painting enthusiast and enjoy both watercolor and acrylics. I am inspired by the ocean and sunsets. I love trying new mediums and developing new skills.
As an art instructor I use a project based approach to teach drawing and painting skills and encourage creativity. As a museum educator I utilized an art and inquiry approach to engage students with art and cultural artifacts.
