Age-Appropriate areas of instruction include:
-Painting Techniques such as Layering, Mixing, Washes, and Glazing.
-Understanding Composition.
-Understanding Color Theory: Opposites or “complementary colors” on the color wheel; Painting with medium tones, so that highlights and shadows can be applied easily. Using multiple colors equals “depth” and “interest.”
-How to Mix Paint: Mixing using the palette knife, brush, on palette, or on painting.

Seonjung is the most patient, knowledgeable, and kindhearted art teacher that I have ever worked with. It has been an absolute honor and pleasure to learn from her. With Seonjung's help, my fashion sketches have gone from being very unrealistic to extremely realistic. A++ for her

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

Anthony was great he gave me knowledge I did not have
Jeannette
Anthony is the drawing instructor I had been looking for! He genuinely is interested in connecting and learning about his students and knowing their background/ approach to art. His art class was very personalized to me, my artwork, and current skills so that I could learn from him the skills and knowledge I need to strength myself as an artist. It is a privilege to learn from him and I highly recommend him to students who are looking for a highly effective instructor that tailors the lesson to them on an individual level.
