Art is an incredible outlet for so many people, and creating something you can be proud of to be seen can be so much fun! You don't have to know every little thing about art to be a great artist. I specialize in digital art, but in a way that is taught traditionally. I currently work with procreate on an ipad, but also have experience with pencil, charcoal, prismacolor pencils and more. Color theory is one of the most interesting things to learn! What are you going for, a black and white image with tons of depth and realism? Beautiful bright colors? Muted fall tones or any other creation, color theory, composition and understanding of the pillars of art make drawing fun. I am a firm believer that art is not based off of talent. Just like any skill it needs to be practiced and you need to know the basics before you are a pro. Art is something you can learn forever and be proud of. Art is unique because, unlike math, you can revisit the same piece over years and directly see how your technique, style, approach and more have changed. You can build whatever world you want with art.

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!
