I have a Masters of Art education. I enjoy teaching students of all ages (kids, teens and adults) no matter what level of experience or ability. Not only do I teach drawing, I’m skilled in Painting, Sculpture, and Mixed Media. All art lessons are designed around the students needs. Students learn at their own pace.

About David

I’m an outside the box thinker and utilize all my skills to provide a fun and engaging atmosphere to enlighten, and encourage my students. I tailor my lessons to each individual student, everybody learns differently and I can appreciate and accommodate for that. I love being an artist and teacher

Steve is an excellent teacher! I always look forward to my classes. I am a student in high school, and he fully understands my need to balance my school work with piano, and he makes sure that I am able to comfortably commit to both aspects of my life. Steve makes sure that I stay on task and that I am progressing with my piano skills all while making the lessons fun and enjoyable.

Having graduated in photography in 2011, I am a professional wildlife photographer, constantly on the move from one to the next great wildlife location, taking pictures and writing articles. In my down time, I love to teach others the basics of photography including theory, history, equipment (DSLR, mirrorless), lighting, posing, post-processing workflow, etc. If you are interested in a career in photography, I can also give you tips on how to get published, find clients, etc.

Prior to focusing on wildlife and nature photography, I photographed portraits (humans, pets) and weddings.

If you take lessons with me you will have access to a multi-year sequential curriculum designed to get you scholarships for top Art Schools.

My Experience
I have years of teaching experience from one of the nation's top art high schools. I have had 7 students go on to get full scholarships from places like MICA SAIC KCAI and RISD. Dozens have gotten partial scholarships or have used their portfolio to stand out while applying to traditional 4-year programs. I have also had students that placed top in the nation in the Scholastic and YoungArts competitions. I have taught hundreds of beginner students how to draw.

Your classes with me:

Fundamentals
I firmly believe that anyone can learn how to draw. We will start with line. Our first lessons will be about building trust between your hand and your eye. You will be learning how to draw by learning how to see and to think. We will discuss perception and brain anatomy to dive deeper into the mechanics of drawing.

I've been obsessed with oil painting, and every kind of 2D visual art, for as long as I can remember, but I never really believed in myself to do it until I worked with Tori.

My drawing, painting, and even my 3D work progressed more, and more quickly, working with Tori than they had in years

Thank you Tori!!!!"
