Daniel cancelled my son's first lesson with less than a one hour notice. He attended the second lesson, but again cancelled the third lesson with a 30 minute notice. He sent me a text message to notify me and I called him back and left a voicemail. 24 hours later and I still haven't gotten a call back. I want my money back. He has wasted my son's time. Poor professionalism.

Daniel adapted throughout the course of the hour-long lesson to understand what I already knew and find appropriate ways to fill in the gaps of my knowledge. He also started me on the process of learning a new approach when looking at and learning to play new music pieces.

David is an excellent artist who has years of experience in teaching art. I have been a student for 3 years and I have come so far as an artist. David has taught me how to see the world in a different light. I have and would recommend anybody who has an interest in art to take lessons from David. He is able to take anybody with the passion to become the artist they strive to be. He is an amazing teacher!

I have been teaching water painting for almost 10 years..
This is a very exciting class! Students will learn How to Paint Watercolors, How to hold a watercolor brush and Basic Brush Control Exercises etc...
I will get you started and perhaps inspire you, as a watercolor painter. I can supply lessons on the craft and skills, but purpose is what is driving you to want to try to create art. What that vision is, is unique for everyone. The footsteps of the path that lies before you are yours to follow until you can find your own path.
So what are you waiting for ? Sign up your lesson today!

Honestly, I can teach drawing at any level. My objective is for the student to improve and work towards their desired achievements -- whether it's just to get better at drawing, work towards making a masterpiece, or putting together a portfolio to get into their desired art school.

In drawing, I've worked primarily in Pencil, Pen, & Digital.

I've been drawing since I was 7, and have worked for 1000's of clients as a freelance artist.

Many people think they can't draw. I used to be one of them. Now, I know that everyone can draw, they just need to learn how to translate what they see into an image. We will start with contour, move into gesture, create the illusion of 3D form using value and color, composition and even create the illusion of space. We will use a variety of media including graphite, charcoal, pastels (oil and chalk) and even use paint. It's really lots of fun!

Profile_104504_pi_TIM_1
"I've learned a lot of things from Tim while working next to him. When I finally set a side some time for a lesson I was very pleased. I learned how important taking extra time with my values while sketching was, and to take special care of how the light reflects off of the eyes of my subjects. Just thinking about these two simple things instantly brought more emotion out of my sketches. Tim is a truly skilled illustrator and designer but more importantly he has a gift for teaching and working with others to achieve a goal."

I am now realizing I am more of a hands on person it is personally challenging for me to learn using this method. In an ideal world we would be learning by shooting in real time."
