Prof. Hilary Gomes, MFA

I teach online Fundamentals in Drawing, 2-d Foundations, color theory, Watercolor Painting, figure drawing and Heads and Hands Drawing.
I am native of the California Bay Area and began my journey in drawing and painting at the Ruth Aswawa School of the Arts High School in San Francisco, CA. I then earned my B.F.A. from The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Art and Science in New York City and spent a campus abroad in the Netherlands. I then received my MFA in Painting from The University of Iowa. I have been a full-time tenured female faculty at Foothill College in Los Altos, CA from 2001 to the present and chair the department of art.
I have been recently published in the Circle Quarterly Art Review Magazine 8th Issue, 2022, for a work entitled Three Roses and Thorns and the International Artist Magazine (Art Prize Challenge No. 125, Issue 141- Oct/Nov. 2021) Florals and Gardens, for a work entitled Three Light Pink Roses. I have participated and exhibited in solo, local, regional, national and international drawing and painting exhibitions, permanent collections and publications.
