I want to help you to become a better artist and have fun while you’re doing it! My style of teaching is to tell you about powerful ways to approach your drawings that will boost your technical ability as fast as possible. In other words, I’m going to help you to make your art look like the thing you’re drawing. But I won’t rush you through it! We’ll take as long as you need to get a good understanding of the most important aspects of the lesson. We can focus on what you are most interested in learning about. Want to learn how to draw faces better? Or maybe improve your proportions for drawing a full body person? Pets, landscapes, still life, it’s your choice because I work for you. Each of these are unique subjects, but there are certain fundamentals that apply to all of them which I will help you with to give your drawings more of a “pop out” look! Some of those things are learning to see values (light and dark), negative space, and how angles and relationships of different elements in your drawing can show you what’s working and what isn’t. For more advanced students, we will hone what you’re already good at and talk about different ways to make your drawings stronger and more accurate. There are some great tricks that can make the drawing process easier and faster, and we may go over some useful materials for you to try as well. I would love to show you how to make some major progress and start drawing like you never even realized you could!
About Anthony G.

I want to help you make huge leaps in your skills to become a better artist than you even thought was possible! Whatever you want to create, you can do it! Private lessons can save a lot of time and keep you on the right path for your personal individual needs, where ever you are on your way to becoming Leonardo (not DiCaprio, the other one). Want to learn how to draw lifelike faces? Paint realistic still life? Improve your proportions with the human figure? Master color with landscapes? Draw anime and manga characters that will make people say "sugoi!!"? [That's "wow" for those of us that have spent some time living in Japan, *wink*] I have experience doing all of these things and I want to share some of the best methods to go about them with you. I’ve been painting with oils for three decades, and drawing for as long as I can remember. I’ve been a full time fine artist for over a decade now, and have been doing guest demos, private and group lessons for many years, for various subject matter and age groups. After graduating from Tyler School of Art at Temple University with a major in Painting, I had jobs making signs by hand, doing T-shirt designs, and in a graphic design studio with clients like M&M Mars, and Revlon. As a freelance artist, I did logos, movie poster illustration, album art and packaging design. I even scored and created sound effects for some short films! Yes, I play keyboard as well. I’ve worked in many different mediums, but painting with oils and drawing are my preferred mediums. I teach painting in oils, as this is my forte, but I am not the best fit for students that are interested only in acrylics. I’ve painted and drawn many different kinds of subjects, but the figure is my favorite. I've worked from photo reference and from life (something right in front of me) as well as from my imagination; the range of styles that I have used have gone from photorealism all the way to cartoons. I am also proficient in Photoshop, which I often use to edit the reference for my paintings. My work has been displayed in many shows across the country, and has sold internationally. There are all kinds of different ways to approach drawing or painting the same thing. You should use the techniques that feel most natural and work best for you. I will customize your lesson to the subject, medium and speed that you prefer, so that as long as you've got the necessary fundamentals taken care of, you can make strides in whatever area you want. I hope that you will sign up for a lesson with me so I can show you how! If you're not sure where to start, just send me a message and we'll figure it out! *Very experienced with special needs people of all ages at various points on the spectrum. **Availability Note: The schedule hows that I'm not available from 11:30pm to 12:00am EST from Tuesday to Wednesday, but I'm actually available at these times. If you're interested in lessons at this time, please sign up and we can do it then, no problem. Thanks!
