Hello! My name is Brendan and I'm an Oil Painter, Artist, and Illustrator. (Check out a few examples of my work below)

I love teaching art. My classes offer an individualized lesson plan and an invigorating method of learning the processes of painting and drawing.

We start with the fundamentals such as line, shape, proportion, form, structure, light, shadow, and color. Then we move into a much more expressive way of working where we focus on mood, experimentation, emotion, and the practice of unleashing you're creative potential.

As a whole you will be taught both technical and creative approaches to art and you're free to use both how you wish. Through my lessons, my goal is to open your mind to the possibilities and benefits you can experience through self exploration when creating art.

I will provide all the materials during our lessons, such as paints, brushes, pencils, erasers, surfaces, easels, and more. The only thing I ask that you bring is your passion and interest for painting and drawing. As long as you have that, I have no problem teaching anyone at any skill level or age.

I highly recommend you choose to work at my location as it will provide the most resources for you to get the most out of your lessons, as well as save you money. If for any reason you are not comfortable with this please shoot me a message and we can discuss other possibilities.

Please feel free to fill out the short survey or message me with any questions you have before you sign up for your lessons.

I look forward to working with you and creating some art!

Great teacher. For someone who has never drawn before, very patient and works at your level.

Brendan is a great instructor! I've taken both painting and drawing lessons with Brendan and I've learned more from taking a few lessons with him then I thought I could learn in a year! His lessons are both fun and insightful with his teaching methods combining expressionist style and technical skills. You can tell he's passionate about teaching you how to learn and discover on your own and he's always encouraged me to take risks with my work. I can't wait for my next lesson.
