I want to help you to become a better artist and have fun while you’re doing it! My style of teaching is to tell you about powerful ways to approach your drawings that will boost your technical ability as fast as possible. In other words, I’m going to help you to make your art look like the thing you’re drawing. But I won’t rush you through it! We’ll take as long as you need to get a good understanding of the most important aspects of the lesson. We can focus on what you are most interested in learning about. Want to learn how to draw faces better? Or maybe improve your proportions for drawing a full body person? Pets, landscapes, still life, it’s your choice because I work for you. Each of these are unique subjects, but there are certain fundamentals that apply to all of them which I will help you with to give your drawings more of a “pop out” look! Some of those things are learning to see values (light and dark), negative space, and how angles and relationships of different elements
I want to help you make huge leaps in your skills to become a better artist than you even thought was possible! Whatever you want to create, you can do it! Private lessons can save a lot of time and keep you on the right path for your personal individual needs, where ever you are on your way to bec

If you have a tendency toward doodling whenever you have paper and a writing utensil in-hand or if you love looking at artwork, then drawing lessons could become your new favorite pastime. Although both drawing and doodling begin with creating marks on a page, drawing takes doodling up several notches. It requires forethought, planning, and a concentrated effort to create a visual work of art — hence the "work" mentioned in the phrase, work of art.
With focus and expert guidance, learning to draw can be a lot of fun. In lessons, you can learn to draw like the great artists of the ages. You'll also work to develop your own unique style.
Why Learn How to Draw?
Drawing not only opens up professional opportunities in graphic arts, animation, design, and more, it's a
lso quite good for a person's health. Individuals who draw regularly tend to demonstrate improved memory, creativity, focus, and communication skills. They also tend to suffer less from anxiety and depression, as drawing can be a great stress reliever.
Drawing is highly beneficial to the developing minds of children. Children who spend time drawing, fine-tune their motor skills and hand-eye coordination, as these centers of the brain continue to develop. Drawing also helps foster imagination and creativity. Plus, children who draw benefit from improved analytical and visual skills, in addition to increased focus and problem solving abilities.
The Best Way to Learn How to Draw and What You'll Study in Drawing Classes
Although you can find lots of free drawing classes and tutorials online, the best way to learn how to draw is by studying with a private drawing tutor. In private lessons, you'll pick up new techniques fast and overcome challenges quickly, as you receive immediate feedback. Plus, your teacher will fully customize your lessons to keep you interested and motivated.
No two private lessons are exactly alike. For example, drawing classes for adults differ greatly in terms of subject matter and teaching methods from drawing lessons for children. In private lessons, you'll focus on the subjects and media that interest you most, while learning at a pace that's comfortable for you.
Sample Curriculum for Beginner Drawing
If you have little or no experience drawing, then beginner lessons are for you. In these classes, your teacher will introduce you to the basic techniques and tools you'll need to begin drawing. You'll learn new skills and have the opportunity to experiment with a variety of materials, tools, and media while being guided by a professional artist. Your teacher might choose to cover the following topics:
- Gather the right tools and media for drawing (paper, pencils, erasers, blending sticks, and high-quality sharpeners)
- Learn the how to hold your pencil
- Train your eye to see shapes and light
- Learn to create outlines, tones, and textures
- Experiment with media (graphite, charcoal, pastels, and ink)
Sample Curriculum for Intermediate Drawing
If you're familiar with some of the basic techniques of drawing and are ready to learn skills that'll elevate your talent, then intermediate classes are for you. You'll be introduced to new drawing techniques, while studying a variety of subjects that you find most interesting. Your teacher might choose to cover the following subjects:
- Introduction to perspective drawing
- Experiment with drawing from photos, still life arrangements, and live models
- Understanding line forms
- Learn to create depth by practicing various shading techniques
- Consider composition and using negative space
Sample Curriculum for Advanced Drawing
Advanced lessons are intended for students who've already reached a high skill level of drawing. You should be familiar with and well-practiced in the basic techniques of drawing. Working with a professional artist, in these classes, you'll further hone your talents, while learning to see and depict real and imagined images with fresh eyes. Topics covered in advanced lessons depend greatly on the individual student's interests and goals, but your teacher might choose to cover the following subjects:
- Create photorealistic drawings
- Learn to draw from memory
- Receive personalized critiques of your work
