My name is Dan. The only thing that I love more than painting is teaching students how to paint. I call my teaching method, "serious play". In other words, I want the students to learn something of value during each class, but also to enjoy the creative process that is key to making a successful painting.
I have been a professional oil painter for over 36 years and have taught painting classes for over a decade. I specialize in original landscapes and wildlife paintings done in a realistic - impressionistic style. My artwork has been collected throughout the country and has appeared in many publications such as Ducks Unlimited Magazine and Cabela's catalog.+ Read More

Today's art lesson with Dan was planned, organized, and given in a friendly, professional and very informative manner. He has excellent communication skills and his demonstrations are informative as well a fascinating to watch. As Dan's student, I was immediately put at ease by his friendly and energetic personality; I felt as if I were talking to an old friend and I left the lesson with a renewed enthusiasm for painting. I really feel as if I doubled my understanding and enthusiasm for oil painting in my first lesson with Dan. No matter what your skill level is, a few lessons with Dan will do wonders for your painting ability and you will enjoy every bit of the time you spend with Dan.+ Read More

When I heard Dan was giving painting classes 19 years ago, I rushed to enroll. I had been admiring his paintings and style ever since I first saw them displayed. Although I had some art experience, I was really new to oil painting and the lessons Dan was able to convey helped me immensely. His classes were easy going and informal leading to a relaxed environment making learning so enjoyable. Though I am now a professional artist, I find myself often thinking back to techniques or lessons in composition I learned from Dan in the years I studied with him. He's a natural!+ Read More
