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.

Hello! I am delighted that you have an interest in learning how to draw, and I am excited to teach you! After receiving my BFA in Drawing through Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design, I then went on to study in Leicester England. There, I completed my MA in Art Museum and Gallery Studies with a focus on museum education. Since then, I have been teaching art and languages both online and in-person.

Our lessons can either focus entirely on techniques, or we can incorporate an understanding of art history and a variety of subject matter while still keeping a technical focus on crafting foundational skills (shading techniques, perspective, contour drawings, self-portraits, still life drawing, and more).

At the moment, lessons will all be virtual, but that doesn't mean we need to stay indoors. I encourage venturing outside (safely) if that is of interest to you.

I am a classically trained artist and I teach traditional methods of representational drawing. I’ve taught at several local ateliers as well as internationally through the State Department’s Art In The Embassies program. I can help you learn about perspective, line, volume, and composition in an a way that is easy to understand. My teaching style is rich with experience and information but also very low key and unintimidating. Also— I’m really fun! Come draw with me!

"My first class with Moataz was nothing short of amazing. He is a walking pillar of information on the subject matter, but never in a arrogant manner. He was thorough in his explanation; which helped me to walk away more knowledgeable.
We had a few technical hiccups but he didn't miss a beat.
I definitely intend to follow up with more classes with him in the near future.
Thanks, Moataz!"
