Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate

I have been drawing since my childhood, long before I completed my BFA and my serious realism practices. Most of all, I want you to HAVE FUN drawing! My goal is to help you gain confidence in your drawing skills, whether they be new or advanced. So, let's pick up those pencils and erasers! :-)

Teaching since:

I want you to have fun drawing, and I don't believe in super-expensive supply lists for beginners! We learn methods first :-) Come with any image for inspiration, a simple sketchbook, and a Ticonderoga black pencil (with new eraser.)

If you are of intermediate level, we'll work on rendering shapes through methods of shading with 2B through 6B, learning to use photographs as reference, and utilizing tracing paper as a placement tool.

I invite all students to look at the world through a different set of "lens," and have fun! :-)

This is my project to become more comfortable at drawing wrinkles, as well as feline features.

This was a study of plaid, shadow, and odd expression through the small format of an ATC.

Great teacher. Gifted artist and thinker. Visualizes things from many different angles that I can't see. Very creative and a good listener.
