I have 25 years of experience in the field of graphic design, illustration, advertising, marketing and business plus 11 years of experience teaching at the college level. I am a highly rated instructor because my easy going personality and my ability to communicate with my students. I am fair and honest, and I find a way to adjust my teaching style to match your learning style. After many years teaching at the college level, I have noticed that many young students want to explore art and design when they go to college, but many are not prepared. I decided to offer my instruction to those who need to develop better skills to be able to make it in an art or design school. Tutoring lessons include basic and advanced drawing techniques including 1,2,3 pt. perspective drawing; color theory and painting in Guache; watercolor; acrylic and oil; pastels and charcoal; and figure drawing and character development.
