Create, have fun, and learn about the Visual Arts with engaging lessons for kids.
I love having fun with my students, as they learn new ideas and concepts about creating their art. To learn and to have fun at the same time while being inspired and motivated brings so much enjoyment to my students and myself, which in turn fosters future interest. I am a very patient and understanding and helpful person. I like using different types of materials with my students which shows them various types of visual effects which they can use in their artwork, as well as keeping things interesting and new. I teach brief art history with various artists, visuals, as well as some vocabulary words that are all age appropriate. I focus on students understanding the elements and principals of art while practicing different techniques and styles. I ask students questions related to what they see, as well as what they think the artist message to the viewer is about. We look at visuals around the world today, notice how artists visuals are promoted in our world today to communicate. I like to show students art that they know in their daily lives all around them. Creating artwork that means something to the student is very important to me because it is what fuels the student to explore more. Having a positive experience is my teaching philosophy with my students, while technical skills will grow with patience and practice. Learning should always be made fun!
About Kristy O.

Hello, my name is Kristy Orlando, and I am a graduate of The School of Visual Arts in New York City. My degree obtained is a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Illustration and a minor in art education. I have over 25 years of teaching experience in the educational field, including different subjects and grades. I was a fulltime art teacher in the public school system. My passion is to share my love of art with my students. I love creating fun lesson plans which engage students in learning about different artists as well as the skills taught to create art. I also have some great lessons involving museum studies which looks at art exhibitions and events in the greatest art museums. I believe that teaching my students about famous artists gives them knowledge and inspiration to see how others have communicated their visions though their art. I love showing students how there are endless types of materials that can be used to create special effects and multimedium works. I am a very patient, supportive, flexible, and an easy-going person who likes to have fun while learning new things. My teaching philosophy is to let kids express themselves, and to let students explore and discover through mistakes, trial and error and problem solving. I believe if fun is the first ingredient, then students will learn in any subject. Art is for everyone, and it is my pleasure to explore with you.
