Hello,

My name is Ervan and I am a native of Denver. I am married and I have three children, my oldest son is actually a young man, he is 19 and attending Metro college, my daughter is fifteen, and my second son is my youngest, at 11. My wife and I have them enrolled in a creative arts school in Denver.

Art has always been the center of my universe. I have been drawing for as long as I can remember. I paint in watercolor, acrylic and oil. I studied art in California at Chico State University, but left school just before I graduated due to financial hardship. I recently went back to school and earned my bachelor's in Global Studies. My other passion is travelling. I have been to many wonderful countries and I have developed an appreciation for the differences in cultures and the varied art in each region.

While at Chico State University I was introduced to art history, architecture, and world art, along with the many hours of studio work. I regularly attend art shows at the local museums, and art districts around our area. I feel it is important to keep in touch with the art community to have a hand on the pulse of creative art.

I have taught art informally at my children's schools in a walk-in capacity as a volunteer, and at our church, which also has a school. My greatest enjoyment is in seeing the faces of youth as they learn to appreciate the art they create.

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 approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Architecture

I studied the history of architecture in college as a fine arts major.

Drawing

I have been drawing for forty years, I am a journeyman sign painter with years of experience doing layout design and fine art drawing and painting.

Golf

I enjoy this sport immensely, it is all consuming, and the greatest stress reliever I have ever experienced. While I am not the greatest golfer, I do know the proper etiquette, all the rules of play, and how to get the most out of the game, both on the course and in life. Lessons are best learned by total engagement.

Painting

I am a former fine art student at Chico State University in California. I have been painting watercolor, drawing, and oil painting for the past twenty years. I am currently setting up a business as a painting instructor at Michele's hobby stores, Southland Mall, and am investigating the possibility of giving community instruction at Denver public libraries in my area.

Writing

There is an immense sense of satisfaction from communicating one's thoughts with clarity and ease of understanding. Writing to me is one of the most profound forms of expression.
Teaching someone how to unlock that potential is its own reward. I enjoy blogging and writing on my website as a form of expressing my ideas and thoughts on many varied subjects. The development of persuasive argument is an art form all it's own. Writing should not be taught within strict confines, but rather as a vehicle for getting your thoughts across in the most effective and concise manner possible, while having fun!
