Whatever your skill level, however fast or slow you want to go, I want to help you to become a better artist and enjoy it while you’re learning! What we cover in your lesson will be determined by your level of expertise. Oil paint is my forte, as I have been painting with it for 30 years. If you are just starting out with oils, we will discuss some important things to understand about the colors, mediums, how to set up your palette and some different ways of applying paint, etc. If you already have some experience with oil painting, we will pick up with whatever areas you would like to improve on. If you are interested in painting the human figure or portraits in particular, we can discuss some important ways to go about painting flesh tones. There are also some little known tips I want to tell you about that will be useful to artists of any skill level! I will share with you any suggestions that I have for technique or different ways of approaching your painting that may help you with whatever areas you’re struggling with. If you would like to work on a painting together during our lessons, it will typically be best to select at least an hour long session. We can focus on how to paint whatever subject you prefer. It’s all about you! I want you to get as much out of your lessons as possible, and we will work on whatever you need to start painting better than ever before!
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!

Anthony has quickly accelerated my 10 yo daughter's drawing abilities. He has taken a natural interest of hers and turned it into a skill. He is careful, patient and dedicated to his students. I highly recommend him!
