Drawing

I have been teaching basic drawing for 20 years. Using unconditional, positive regard, I help students learn basic drawing techniques: contour, gesture, and cartooning that build skill in drafting realistic representations of the human figure and other objects. All media (pen/ink, charcoal, pencil, marker, etc) are explored to find a comfortable tool for your personal expression. A solid understanding of form as it is represented in line and shadow is achieved and can be translated into other media, such as paint, pastel or sculpture.

Painting

As a practicing artist, I share my 30 years of experience with oil, acrylic and watercolor. Classic fine art media is explored so that a personal medium is discovered. An understanding of unique qualities and cautions for media, and techniques for planning and completing works is conveyed. The student will also learn what it takes to set up a safe studio environment for painting.

Approved Subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
