Hi, there! My name is Ricardo and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2006 and have loved helping my students accomplish their goals on a personal level, I went to the Florence Academy Of Arts in Italy and earned a degree in fine arts in 1996. I have also a degree in Graphic Design and animation, so I would love to share with you my knowledge. My experience varies from traditional art to digital. I have work for Disney studios,Nike, Dream works ,the city of Calabasa ,the city of Los Angeles, Pasadena and many years as freelance illustrator , graphic artist ,web designer and muralist. My personality is fun and helpful. My teaching style is personalized depending of the subject, art technique and level of the student. As a true artist I have excellent knowledge and understanding about traditional art and experience in old masters techniques. I am ready to help you reach your goals!
