Instructors: Amara Richardson and Laura Schofield
About the Instructors:
Amara has been passionate about art and its history since childhood. She studied art history and fine art at San Francisco State University and has continued her studies in a wide variety of mediums. Amara especially loves to work in clay, oil paint and mixed media to create colorful works with a good-humored touch of charm. She approaches making and teaching art from an art historian’s perspective and believes that understanding the past is essential to creating art for the future. Having worked with children for over a decade teaching after school art classes, directing a day camp and more, Amara has developed a natural rapport with her students. A lover of animals, she will happily talk about them for hours, so feel free to tell her all about your favorite creatures.
Laura Schofield was an instructor at Academic Talent Search (ATS) through CSUS for 15 years where she instructed grades 4 through 9 students in color theory, beginning cartooning, animation, Stop-motion and Anime/Manga. She currently teaches oil & chalk pastels, colored pencil, charcoal and pen & ink at University Art. “I love teaching art students of all ages. They are excited to participate and absorb everything we cover in class. This willingness and enthusiasm to learn makes me a better educator because I draw from their energy. Crocker Art Museum offers a program that enhances my teaching skills by allowing the freedom to be flexible in my curriculum, thus permitting me to match the student’s needs and learning pace. ”For the past 15 years, Laura Schofield has been an instructor at Academic Talent Search (ATS) through CSUS, where she instructs grades 4 through 9 students in beginning cartooning, animation, Stop=motion and Anime/Manga. “I love teaching young students.
