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!

*My scheduling availability isn't always accurate, as many students have their lessons with me every other week. My schedule is different from week to week, so it's best to at least pick a time with me and if it doesn't work, we'll make sure we schedule a lesson time that's convenient for both of us. If you need to schedule a lesson for a time sooner than what the TakeLessons calendar allows, you can always let me know and we'll most likely work something out for you. I can teach drawing at any level. My goal is for the student to improve and work towards their desired achievements -- whether it's just to get better at drawing, work towards making a masterpiece, or putting together a portfolio to get into their desired art school. I specialize in digital drawing or illustration. Students would get the most out of classes with me if they work in digital media. Students often use Krita, Photoshop, Firealpaca, Paint Tool Sai or Clip Studio Paint on laptop/desktop with a tablet such as a Wacom. They otherwise often use Procreate on the iPad. If working with pencil on paper, students may take phone pics and message/email them to me during class for feedback, or hold up their drawings to the webcam for me to take screenshots if the webcam quality is high enough. I've been drawing since I was 4, and have graduated from Carnegie Mellon University with a Bachelor's in Fine Arts.
