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.+ Read More
Definitely knows what he's talking about!
I had the crazy idea of gifting to the girl I like a painting of her favorite flower. She lives in Shanghai and I was flying to over from New York. The problem was that I did not know how to paint. Because I had been so busy with work, I waited until last week before my flight to take lessons. Guiseppe guided me on how to approach my project and how to mix colors. Could not have done it without his instruction. Thank you.+ Read More
This was my first time taking any kind of private art lesson and I am really glad to have gotten Giuseppe. He explains things in a very easy to understand way, and has no problem fielding questions, even if they stray from the immediate topic, which is great for my learning style. I will definitely book more lessons with Joe.+ Read More

Jack loved his first lesson. Joe did a super job showing him the basics of graffiti art. He was both patient and encouraging. Off to a great start! Thank you
He teaches my daughter, but I was listening to him during the lesson, he kept explaining everything to her, exactly what we wanted, a good foundation, finally!
Joe was very thorough in his explanations on the Hittite and art of graffiti! Had a great time during the session!
LOVE the way he jumped straight in and hit all the basics ... covering paintbrushes and the COLOR WHEEL,
Joe couldn't have been better. He was super knowledgeable about drawing and was able to focus on the areas I wanted to improve on and explain things in a really helpful way!! Would highly recommend.
He was an all-right teacher and a decent guy.

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.
Joe is an awesome instructor. He let me take my time and had a tremendous amount of patience. He was very easy to work with and very detailed. I can't wait for my next class!
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!!!!!!!!!!+ Read More
Joe explains very well, is easy-going and kept the whole lesson fun with his sense of humor! Also generous with his time. Would highly recommend.
Just doing one lesson with lines has increased the wealth of my skill quite a bit. I love how Joe gave direct instructions, yet room for creativity. The lesson was great fun and I realized that I CAN actually draw!
By far, the best instruction I ever had in acrylic painting!! Joe is so talented and easy to follow. He gave precise directions and took the time to explain every little step. I highly recommend Joe as he provides wonderful lessons for the artist in anyone :)+ Read More

I paid 170 dollar for two lessons with him and since I knew it was a busy week and I could not make it to the first class, I cancelled the lesson a week the lesson. We talked about the cancellation over the phone and everything sound good until this point. Then I received a message from the site saying that I missed a scheduled class and the teacher marked the class as a MISS and its not refundable if it is marked miss. I was confused at the moment and one of the customer service reached out to me saying that the teacher couldn't reach me. He has both my phone number and Email, and in fact I did not receive anything from him! So I complained about he marking my class as a miss, the customer service guy was very rude over phone and asked me to provide he recorded phone call in order to prove I cancelled it 24 hrs before the class. I don't believe that it is just a coincidence that this teacher choose to contact through a phone call instead of Email so that I do not have a record of the cancellation. This is all non sense. NEVER TAKE CLASS WITH THIS GUY ONLY IF YOU WANT TO THROUGH YOUR MONEY AWAY FOR NOTHING! There is no miscommunication between us and there is no misunderstanding. All he did for getting 85 dollar is making a unrecorded phone call. He lied to the costumer service and he was ridiculously irresponsible. NEVER BOOK CLASS WITH THIS GUY!!!!!!+ Read More
Joe is very knowledgeable and very patient. I scheduled another lesson with him. I would highly recommend Joe.
I had no idea how fun and easy it was to stretch my own canvases. Joe showed me many time saving techniques and cost effective tools to start makingg my own canvases!
Joe is very patient and passionate about art. He explained everything I needed to know. He showed me how to use the right paint brushes and the right colors. Thank you Joe!
