I want to help you to become a better artist and have fun while you’re doing it! My style of teaching is to tell you about powerful ways to approach your drawings that will boost your technical ability as fast as possible. In other words, I’m going to help you to make your art look like the thing you’re drawing. But I won’t rush you through it! We’ll take as long as you need to get a good understanding of the most important aspects of the lesson. We can focus on what you are most interested in learning about. Want to learn how to draw faces better? Or maybe improve your proportions for drawing a full body person? Pets, landscapes, still life, it’s your choice because I work for you. Each of these are unique subjects, but there are certain fundamentals that apply to all of them which I will help you with to give your drawings more of a “pop out” look! Some of those things are learning to see values (light and dark), negative space, and how angles and relationships of different elements in your drawing can show you what’s working and what isn’t. For more advanced students, we will hone what you’re already good at and talk about different ways to make your drawings stronger and more accurate. There are some great tricks that can make the drawing process easier and faster, and we may go over some useful materials for you to try as well. I would love to show you how to make some major progress and start drawing like you never even realized you could!

There are so many reasons to learn to draw. Perhaps you are applying for college and want to strengthen your portfolio? Maybe you changing careers and need to strengthen your visual thinking? Or you may just want to learn to draw for fun. Whatever your reason is, I can help. I have been teaching drawing for 20 years and I’ve worked with students of all ages, from young adults to retirees. There seems to be a notion out there that “one must have a talent for art before they can learn to draw. ” One thing I can say for sure is that this absolutely NOT true. With the right knowledge, a strong desire to learn, and a willingness to try, anyone can learn to draw. I teach students how to draw from a classical studies background, but I believe in nurturing the uniqueness of each student and honoring their learning style. Unlike a classroom setting, a private lesson frees us up to build the lessons specifically around the student's goals and needs.

I teach drawing skills in any medium (this includes digital art - drawing and painting) covering any style and interest ranging from traditional still life and live model subjects to cartoon and anime. You will learn the fundamentals of recognizing and drawing shapes, arranging and cropping composition and the basic structure of human figures. As you advance you will learn about lighting and rendering techniques, creating movement and advanced composition. If your interests are in digital art, you will learn all of the same drawing concepts of traditional drawing plus digital painting techniques and color theory. I can also give you the tools and understanding to create your own digital brushes to use on your future art projects as well as tips and instructions on using Adobe Photoshop or Procreate for painting. If you are a more advanced student, we can dive into more directed areas of study including sketching, fine art, concept art, landscape work and figure drawing, all incorporating dynamic compositions and lighting to tell a story. Again, if you are more interested in digital art, this will include painting techniques and color theory. I love teaching and I'm so happy I can continue to share my passions with those willing to try something new and challenging!
