I am a working artist and have been drawing and painting for more than 9 years now. I currently teach drawing the human figure with live models for groups both at my studio and other locations. I have trained at Glassell School of Houston, Calgary Academy of Art, Atelier Souza Rodriguez. I enjoy teaching and I want to share my knowledge and experience with students interested in learning drawing with pencils, charcoal, pen and ink, conte pencils, etc. I teach private drawing lessons for beginners and intermediate students and help advanced students to gain drawing mastery.

Hilda is really great and really helping us make progress learning Spanish.
She is so cheerful, funny and she makes it fun.
My husband and I are learning together and we have different learning styles so I'm sure it must be more challenging for her. She is very good and she makes it fun.

Want to improve your realist drawing skills with ongoing step-by-step guidance and support? If so, I am here to provide students with a methodical approach to classical realism based on the traditions founded during the Renaissance. We will follow the curriculum I learned in studying classical art with emphasis on the handling of materials, accurate observation of 2-D shapes, the relationship between light and form and a how to bring a drawing to a high level of refinement. The exercises increase in difficulty as skills become more refined; this helps the student to not get overwhelmed and stay focused. Drawing is the foundation of all art and what you learn here will help guide you throughout your artistic career. I'm excited to work with you and look forward to helping you achieve your artistic goals!

About Jason

I have a BFA from Texas State University. After that I began my search for a more rigorous study in classical realism. I found this at the Texas Academy of Figurative Art, studying the same curriculum taught at the esteemed Florence Academy of Art. I studied at TAFA for 2 years learning the clas

To draw is to be fearless. If you are interested in drawing from life, then I can assist by teaching you the basics or show you how to improve your skill set. I work as a professional artist and have a great deal of knowledge about materials and processes. I enjoy working in ink, pencil (graphite and colored), charcoal, and pastel (oil and soft). I am also into combining media. I have taught for over a decade and my students range in age from children to senior citizens.

About Sandy

I believe in the power of art to change lives. I have been working as a professional artist for several decades and I love what I do. My work ranges from murals to intimate portraiture. My resume includes National Endowment for the Arts funded public art projects, solo exhibitions and museum shows

The first session with Sandy went very well. She was able to ascertain quickly the level of my daughter's skill and determine a course of action that will take her to the next level of her art. We are excited to see the result of the remaining sessions.

Have you always been interested in making art, but have been too intimidated or overwhelmed to try? Or maybe you’ve been making art for years, but are itching to take your work to the next level. Are you looking to strengthen your portfolio, perhaps for college or an artistic career? Regardless of what level you’re at, I’m ready to collaborate with you and create a lesson plan tailored to your (or your child’s) unique goals. Anyone can learn how to draw! It only takes practice, dedication, and patience.

In our lessons, we will strengthen your understanding of technical aspects like line, movement, value, composition, texture, weight, and shape language, by drawing from observation (both from life/in person and photo/video reference). Those that like drawing in a more stylized way (more cartoony than realistic) will learn how to apply their observational studies to their stylized work. Remember, even cartoons are based off of real life!

Supplies will depend on your own artistic goals

Jessi has been a tremendous help for my Design II class. They taught me all the proper techniques and was very patient with me and my extremely minimal amount of skill. Thanks to them I managed to get a much better grade than I usually would in these types of media classes (i'm so so so bad at technology) and I feel more autonomous when it comes to designing my own posters for shows.
Destiny
Jessi was always kind, honest and extremely helpful with her critiques of my work. Her guidance helped me understand key concepts in what makes good art and I improved so much because of it! I highly recommend her as a tutor!

Jessi was a TA for my freshman year drawing class and she was amazing to be in class with! Very supportive, friendly and made the class a much more positive environment!

How do you transfer a 3D subject onto a 2D surface? How do you draw what you SEE and not what you THINK? Drawing is the ability to see and transfer accurately what you see onto your 2D area. There are many techniques and tricks from the drawing masters I have shown my students that are effective in improving their drawing skills. We will also delve into highlights and shading, and use various pencils and other mediums to enhance the drawing experience as well. Come and see that your drawing can improve tremendously with practice and the right techniques!

About Rita

I have been teaching and painting since 1983. I am also a professional mural artist and found that my painting improved many years after art school. I was frustrated back then and painting seemed so complicated! Is that you? I figured out, with my own research, the freedom and fun in painting. Y
