Teaching since:
April 2014

Lesson will be divided into three parts:

1.First a brief introduction to some basic elements in the art of drawing and painting, including perception, color theories, and pictorial design.
2.Second part will be practice, where the fun begins! Students try to apply what they learn.
3.Once the student is comfortable with the lessons hitherto, he or she will be encouraged to develop his or her own voice and narrative.

Students are encouraged to explore the rationale and sensational aspect of creative visual art.

. Nothing is more satisfying then hearing my students going home with new pieces of knowledge that he or she is unaware of before. Maybe a new idea, a new way of thinking, new perspective at perceiving. I had never cease to be amazed by the creativity of my students as every single one of them is also my teacher.
. I should try my very best effort to live up to the standards and ideal I have set for myself.

Manhei and I have been colleagues for the longest time and he is by far one of the most exceptionally skilled artists that I have had the fortune to know. Both in his philosophical approach to teaching and his own art. He is very patient and will help you build your skill level in the arts to new heights. Definitely take this opportunity to study with him before he gets too expensive.

Manhei is a great guy, completely dedicated to his art, and a patient, kind instructor. Definitely overqualified for the job, but with an excellent attitude and optimistic outlook.
