By practicing your technical skills and learning art theory and traditional methods you will then be able to expand into a state of creative self expression.

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!

I know noting about drawing and just after the first lesson I feel like I have some some sense of how to look at objects and try to draw them
Karen
Eileen is an amazing tutor and she had been very professional and thoughtful even before the course was conducted by discussing the right material to use during the class. Her presentation is very detailed and easy to follow, she is very patient as well which made us very comfortable during the session. Definitely recommend!

Did you ever want to learn art from a professional? what about someone who's worked at pixar? an animation studio? freelanced? i did it all.

As an illustrator it's my job to figure out multiple concepts for one idea. As a teacher, i like to believe that there's more than one day of doing something. With my one on one lesson plan and schedule, i cater everything to my student's specific needs. Most teachers do things strictly out of the book but then you don't share your wisdom, personal experience or technique that's involved. i stepped out of the illustration industry to continue a life of teaching. i want share my knowledge with the future generation of artists and help them grow to understand why they love to do art.

About Tony

"Our first "lesson" was more of a "get to know each other" and "painting goals" lesson in my office.

Renata has a fantastic life story and based on our mutual first interview and philosophy comparison I believe she will be an excellent teacher to help me reach my artistic goals!

I look forward to much further work and discussion with her!"
