In our photography classes, I teach students just taking a brand new dslr camera out of the box how to use the camera in manual mode like a professional. We discuss technical aspects including the exposure triangle, composition, lighting and more.

Did you ever want to learn art from a professional? what about someone who's worked at pixar? an animation studio? freelanced? i did it all.

As an illustrator it's my job to figure out multiple concepts for one idea. As a teacher, i like to believe that there's more than one day of doing something. With my one on one lesson plan and schedule, i cater everything to my student's specific needs. Most teachers do things strictly out of the book but then you don't share your wisdom, personal experience or technique that's involved. i stepped out of the illustration industry to continue a life of teaching. i want share my knowledge with the future generation of artists and help them grow to understand why they love to do art.

Notes from 10 year old student:
Very flexible and caters the lesson to what you want to learn. Clear instructions and easy to understand. Lets you learn at your own pace.
Sarah
My Son started with Sergio almost a year now. The music teacher in his school moved him to play with the fifth grade class, however he is a fourth grader. I received a great report about his music performance from school. Sergio is a wonderful music teacher, who is able to make the lesson full of energy and joy. I strongly recommend him for any student who wants to achieve great progress in Sax in no time.

He knows how to teach, but he taught from his iPad, iPhone, in his car. I kept asking him how to draw, and he kept showing me from his iPad. This didn't translate to a good experience. If he wants to teach, he needs to do it NOT from his car.
Ashley
Jason was very patient with me and very nice. I loved what I've learned so far and can't wait to learn more!

Great lesson. Jason is working with my mom to tailor the lessons to her level. Mom enjoyed the lesson and is looking forward to more.

With a Master's Degree in Medical Art, you can be sure I'm passionate about all things drawing and painting! I love life art and drawing characters (realistic or cartoons/comics welcome!), environments, plants, and animals, anything really! This can be for the newest beginners, long time artists in need of some practice, help with school portfolio admissions, or just for fun to keep your mind sharp! I'm happy to work digitally or traditionally. Send along a message if you think we would be a good match!
