I got my first camera when I was 8 years old and have been a passionate shutterbug ever since. I can teach you how to use all of the manual features on your camera to get the effects you want to achieve, and I can help you to train your eye to see and capture memorable compositions.
Taking pictures is the first part of the journey - the second is editing them to adjust exposure, saturation, contrast, etc. I work with Photoshop and can teach you how to tune your images and fix problems like lens dust, harsh shadows, or face shine in flash pictures.
I encourage each student to find his or her personal style to express a unique vision. You don't need any experience to become an artist, just the desire to start noticing new things all around you and capturing moments to share with others!

I like to take pride in making my students feel secure and knowing and seeing the improvement they make within each session. I will be handing out a materials list prior to our lessons. Most students see a huge leap in drawing within the the first lesson! Class starts out usually with me giving a 1 hour demonstration on what I expect them to do as I cover and explain my entire process and thought and calculations that goes into drawing and painting. For the rest of the class I will be besides the student as they work giving them one on one pointers and as much help and explanation as they need in order to improve. Students start out with learning how to look and draw what they observe accurately by first working on simple geometric shapes such as spheres, cubes. We then will move on to Cast studies and after a few months of studying we will start on figures and portraits.

I teach the fundamental basis for all representational drawing. From still life to portraits and the figure leading up to advanced genre or multi-figure pictures. I have been drawing and painting my whole life and love to teach drawing and painting to anyone who wants to learn. Visual communication skills are a foundation for many forms of problem solving skills. These skills all lead to a keen sense of awareness of ones self and environment.
I have hundreds of hours teaching experience in many subjects spaning from sports chess and the arts. I have won numerous awards for my ability to communicate the detailed aspects of complicated intricate subject matter. I have been verified to teach all ages and have numerous background checks est

My lessons are taught in the classical tradition, focusing on realism and aesthetics. Students are provided with the practical tools to depict light, form, space, and materiality, as well as with with the conceptual tools to compose compelling artworks that express their personal vision. I tailor my lessons to individual students’ level, from fundamentals to advanced techniques. Through working on their pieces, students learn to master shapes, values, edges, media handling and color-mixing. Advanced students focus on practical application of color theory and on composition design.
I am a NYC-based professional artist and educator with a background in classical painting and printmaking. Imparting artistic knowledge and cultivating creativity are an inseparable part of my work, I love seeing students excel and achieve their painterly goals. Over my years of teaching I became h

**I will be sending out a material list prior to our lessons.
Each student is different and unique so classes will be adjusted to each of you.
The following is a guideline for us.
We will begin the class with an introduction to the subject matter where I will demonstrate my process and thought into the drawing. After this useful introduction, you will be the one drawing and learning! I will be there through the process guiding you.
First, we will focus on studying how to draw what you see. We will work on perception through geometric shapes. After a few months with life still models and objects, we will start on figures and portraits.
Our training together will focus on:
-Understanding drawing tools and materials.
-Approaching the drawing with simple geometric shapes.
-Acquisition and development of reflective habits and representative skills.
-Develop the capacity for immediate acquisition (notes and sketches).
-Initiate tonal and chiaroscuro assessment studies.

Basics such as the exposure triangle, how to compose and pick your shots, different uses for the tools found in Photoshop and Lightroom (post processing), how to effectively use lighting, and much more. As time goes on you'll be able to retouch and stylize your photos, to give them that professional look you have been wanting. All you need to get started is a camera and your eye. I look forward to seeing you and as always stay creative!
