Overview

Hello, my name is Joe. I am excited when I learn of new potential artists. My skills are well rounded and focused. I can teach you in many media applications and art forms. I am able to teach from basic drawing techniques to full Portrait art, Film & Digital Portrait / Fashion Photography and Image Retouching/ Manipulation. My forte' are Drawings, Acrylic Paintings, Charcoal Drawings, Photography and Digital image manipulation. I have been published in Art and Fashion magazines for my art. My goal is to teach you how to see the world around us as a canvas and cull your visions from it and recreate it to your desires. My goal is to have you gain a deep understanding of yourself as an artist and how to translate that onto/into your media of choice.

· Drawing · In home Our son is enjoying drawings lesson with Joe very much. Joe explains concepts very clearly and in an age appropriate manner. He is also great at applying our son's strong interest in video game characters to learning different aspects of drawing.

· Painting · In home What a brilliant artist! Joe went over everything an artist needs to know about color. He took the time to explain color psychology, pigment, characteristics, color schemes, color mixing, shadows, highlights, ect! He provided a solid understanding of color knowledge that I can put to effective use. Thank you Joe!!!!!!!!!!
