Everyone can draw. And anyone can draw better. The first step is easy—we just get you making the right connections between your eyes, hands, and mind. Then comes wiring your brain and muscles through active learning and meaningful practice over the long term. As an instructor, I will give you exercises and projects that turn on the light bulbs. The feedback I will give you is two-fold: 1) I respond to your work as a viewer, so that you can learn to see your own work more objectively; 2) I relate to your art making as a fellow learner and share the ways that I have learned. Developing your craft is a lifelong pursuit that sees you continuously growing as an artist. I have found that my beginning students, without exception, get off to a great start on this journey and intermediate students never fail to rapidly evolve. Whether new to drawing or seasoned, my students always inspire and motivate me with their creativity. Sign up and you'll be drawing and seeing things in new ways from ...

Tabitha is an experienced professional with a wealth of knowledge. Her teaching style is excellent, she has a great, friendly personality & is super encouraging. I learned a lot during my first lesson & I can't wait until my next one.!"

"I thoroughly enjoyed my lessons with Jacob. My husband gave them to me as a birthday present and it was tons of fun. Jacob was able to answer all of my nitty gritty questions, as well as general tips on improving my skills. The lessons were enjoyable and I learned tons. I've gone from shooting in complete auto mode, because I didn't know how to do anything different, to shooting in aperture priority mode with much better results. My Christmas portrait of my kids will be much better this year thanks to these lessons. If you're looking for an affordable way to improve this is a great option because you'll learn a lot in just a few one-on-one sessions. Jacob was also very flexible in working with me on the schedule for the lessons. Thanks Jacob!"

It was great not to be asked to buy new brushes or special paint. Be aware that she is a gentle person, but she works fast. No paint is going to dry on her canvas before she is done.!"
