Brendan is a lovely instructor. He provides a very casual experience but without skipping on the technical know how.

I was a more advanced student of his, so at times it felt like more a a collaboration, but i was still able to learn from him.
Mike
Such a great teacher! Brendan knows his stuff and his artwork is awesome. I learned so much from being his student.

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!

About John

Hello! My name is John and I can teach you to draw and paint. I am high energy, funnier than all get out, yet have a serious love of art. Let's explore not just the technical side of drawing/painting, but let's help you discover how to express your creative self!

Absolutely fantastic! John was amazing with my son, asked him what he wanted to learn and then started to show him different ways to help his technique. High recommend John!
Byron
John was a very patient and helpful instructor. Two of the participants had no water color experience and he provided them with a good understanding of the concepts as well as providing most helpful examples of how to actually do water colors. Will definitely ask John for a follow up session if we return to Las Vegas in the future.
Beth W.
Love the way that he started in the right position for me. The class flowed very Lacey and he's a very nice man

Whether you have never picked up your DSLR camera before or are starting to become serious about photography, my lessons will help you get on the right track. I have been teaching Photoshop on Takelessons for 3 years now, and I am now deciding to expand my lessons and offer photography as well. We can go over how to use your camera, what gear you should bring, lenses, how to control: shutter speed, aperture, ISO, etc. We can get into technical aspects such as printing, post processing, and sharing your images online as well. I am a "Canon guy", so that is my specialty!
