I've been teaching drawing classes to students of all ages and group sizes for the last 6 years. In my Drawing lessons we'll learn about basic technical concepts and techniques with different tools. We'll discuss how to apply those techniques to different images and scenes, and how to use them most effectively. Well also learn from classic pieces of art and historic artists. Lessons can also be tailored towards students individual interests while also giving a well rounded education.

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.

"Margie is a phenomenal art instructor and artist – I highly recommend her classes to art learners of all ages! Whether you are interested in improving and practicing new art skills or looking for a fun art activity for your kids or with friends, Margie’s art classes are right for you! Margie gives excellent step-by-step instruction to create a wide variety of art subjects and styles, and can teach any art medium (watercolor paint, colored pencil, acrylic, etc.) in virtual and in-person settings. During lessons, Margie is great at giving individual feedback to each student in both group and individual sessions and encourages her students to explore and express their own creativity while they create – you will have a lot of fun and feel proud of the art you make in Margie’s classes. I took several of Margie’s art lessons with a group of friends (adult age group) and we learned to create a wide variety of subjects (nature, floral, animal, & human subjects) and learned to use several different mediums including watercolor, colored pencil, oil pastels, pencil & marker – I learned something new with every image/medium, love the art we got to create, and had the best time!"

"I have really enjoyed my drawing lessons with Kelvin! He is very detailed in his instruction and ensures that his students learn the essential skills necessary to become good drawers. He is very encouraging and honest in his feedback. I appreciate his transparency when critiquing my work. I need to hear the truth in order to get better. When I draw something that he is astounded by, I will know that I have truly earned his respect. My lessons fly by because we're having such a good time. I'm enjoying the journey."

"I have been wanting to learn drawing since I was a kid. Had a few years of drawing when I was a kid and then haven't touched in a long time. When I rekindled my interest to learn, I came across Dennis.
Honestly, the reason why I chose Dennis was because he provided at-home classes and that would avoid the hassle of me having to travel. The first few classes were more of me and him warming up to each other, as I am sure he also found me different.
He comes with all the necessary equipment and spends a few minutes giving you some basics of the stuff we are going to do that day. Then he leaves you to draw while he also draws the same. He glances once in a while at your sheet and gives you very subtle feedback. If you have missed something, he will just try to nudge you in the right direction with minor comments like "Don't you think, these are of the same darkness?, There may be more highlights in this area or the mid tones here and here are of the same darkness. etc.". He never touches your paper, but only guides you.
Sometimes when some focus is needed (for example on the eyes), he will tell you the technique involved in depth and we did one full class just doing eyes, one full class on hair.
It was a little frustrating initially for me as I was not used to the teaching technique, and now I see the point. The first drawing itself turned out be much much better than I had anticipated it to be and he hasn't touched my paper till now - so this drawing is fully mine.
You can also continue drawing and send work via text message to him. You almos t always get detailed instant feedback. The only thing is, I haven't been very diligent in doing drawings due to lack of free time. So once a week for an hour is what I do.
He also spends extra time sometimes so that he can take the drawing to a logical point, sometimes even beyond 1.5 hrs though my session is for an hour each. That shows the commitment he has to his students.
I believe my work will improve as this course continues. We have had about 6 classes and I am already seeing the difference. A long way to go, but the first steps have been right - most of it due to Dennis and his method of teaching. I would say more than teaching, it is a method of mentoring where the hand holding is done in a unique way."
