Jonathan is without a doubt a talented professional photographer / artist. Yet he has adapted himself to working with a novice trying to navigate a new digital camera before a big Patagonia vacation of a lifetime. Whether you are a beginner like I am or a professional photographer looking to improve your game, Jonathan will exceed your expectations. I like his patient and calm approach to my questions and after only two lessons I have already improved so much.
Jeff W.
I have learned a lot from Jonathan so far. He has been very helpful in helping me understand PhotoShop and Lightroom. I would highly recommend him.

Jonathan is a really good instructor. He has helped me out a lot so far with the different software applications to do with photography. I’m still learning, but every lesson I get more invaluable information from him.
I would highly recommend him.

I offer a unique perspective on modern art in a variety of categories. I am capable of teaching many drawing techniques and incorporating them into everyday life. Drawing with me also includes learning other skills as well such as painting, digital art, and journal page work.

About Derek

I'm very relaxed and want to give off a positive atmosphere for others looking to learn how to express themselves with art! I look to show students how enjoyable art is and spread knowledge about the history and why it is important today.

Do you want to draw like Rembrandt? Do you want to be the next Van Gogh? Or maybe you want to be able to draw simple subject matter, like your family dog! Well, these are the online classes for you! My name is Timothy and I have been drawing for 30 years (pencil, pen & ink, colored pencil, and oil pastel). I enjoy sharing my art experience with others, no matter what age, no matter where you are beginning. I can begin with the simplest subject matter in drawing, like cartoons, and advance you into more advanced subject matter such as portraiture and drawing from life. My training is a balance of self taught instruction and my art teacher, John Gordon of newmasters.com, the designer of the Green Bay Packers logo!
What are you waiting for? Now is the time to cultivate your inner artist and use your artistic talents like never before. Contact me and let’s get the ball rolling.
