Sharing Everything I Know With My Students

Some artists believe in only sharing a certain amount of their knowledge, while holding onto bits they don't share with anyone. It has always been my philosophy to share everything I have learned, so that others use may use it in developing their own skills.

What Our Students Say

I found that improving my drawing skills helps greatly in my paintings. The ability to capture proportions, render shading correctly, and show perspective properly are all great assets in painting. I highly recommend anyone embarking on or already involved in painting to take these drawing classes.
