Hi guys,

Life drawing in graphite or charcoal
Pastel painting
Watercolor painting
Digital painting

This is a favorite quote of mine:
' practice without theory is to sail an uncharted sea; theory without practice is not to set sail at all'(Susser M, 1968)

It means that in a few short hours, I can teach you HOW to practice your drawing or painting. It may take countless hours of practice for you to attain the level that you desire, but you need only a few hours of tutoring to learn how to get there. If you continue to practice without knowing what or how to practice properly, you're sailing an uncharted sea, and you may never improve! Or worse, you may form bad habits and be counterproductive.

I'm an art school graduate that loves to share his knowledge with others. I have been told many times that I am very patient. I learned a structure of learning drawing and painting from the ground up. Basically, I can give you a condensed version of my very expensive education. I can teach you everything that they taught me.

No matter your age or ability, I can show you how to begin, or how to continue.

I learned the foundation of drawing at the Academy of Art University. I took classes such as Analysis of Form, Figure Drawing, Clothed Figure Drawing, and Anatomy. I will be teaching things like how to draw what you see--not what you know; how to be discerning of proportions, angles, and shapes. I will ask the student of his/her goals and preferred style and we will cultivate it in progressive steps. The best part is that anyone can do this because one can always simply start at the beginning.


I also learned how to control oil paints in school. I was in classes like Landscape Painting, and Clothed Figure Painting. I can show students how to use their drawing knowledge as the groundwork for a painting. We will block in simple shapes, value pattern, and color matching. We can discuss preferred style, subject matter, and goals.
