Though I haven't done this 1:1, I have taken a group class with Eli and he's an excellent teacher. Lessons are well planned and yet also have spontaneity. He articulates the lesson of the day well, gives rich assignments, and then comments on your work in a supportive way that gives you a lot to continue to work on.

I provide classical instruction in portraiture, still life and landscape in your studio or mine. In this traditional approach to drawing and painting, what will be taught and focused upon are perspective, value and composition in order for the student to develop strong visual language skills. The program of study begins with a specific focus on drawing, since drawing is the foundation upon which all great traditional art is built. Throughout this training, emphasis will be placed on accuracy, or more specifically, seeing and rendering correctly such things as line quality, hard and soft edges, proportion, positive and negative space through abstract form and the use of the full range of values.

About Jeff

I'm a graduate of Dean College in Franklin, MA and The School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston where I majored in art history and studio art with a focus on portrait painting and illustration. I continued further study at the Andeeva Portrait Academy in Sante Fe New Mexico, the Los Angeles Acad

This was my first lesson with this website. I really enjoyed Jane's laid back style and friendly going personality. She was easy to connect with and talk to. Extremely helpful. I like how she focused on exactly what I was asking for help with and didn't waste my time with unnecessary help.

First of all, Raymond was great. The drop-down for class type did not offer "Creative Writing" which is the class I took. I was very lucky to be Raymond's only student, so I learned so much and left with anticipation of my potential to be a writer. He gave great examples and offered time to practice. The class was 5 Hours! The time fly by for me as a student. I am a beginner so his patience was very much appreciated. After the class, I felt really inspired and have been practicing every day writing something for 20 minutes. I would definitely take another class from Raymond.
