Art Instuctor | Tutor | Mentor

 I teach my students how to SEE;  how to analyze and capture the ESSENCE of what they are viewing.  When looking at an object to draw, paint, or photograph…whether it is a face, still life, interior space, or exterior composition…one needs to SEE the entirety of its parts, plus every detail.

I build confidence and skill-sets, offer a wide variety of art materials, introduce my What-Why-How principles, and teach how to talk intelligently about the art that is created.
