About Elijah

I am 23 years old and going onto to my second year of graduate school at California Institute of the Arts. I have been painting since 2008 and I am still advancing the techniques that I have learned when I was a young man. I feel like I started from zero, as far as painting skills go, and that I when I teach my experience any person can have a chance to be a great painter. What I like the most about painting is the ability to construct anything, and just from it being painted on canvas gives it credibility. I also like how it has such a long history that every painter must relive through. If I feel that I can not paint something (like snake scales), it creates nothing but a challenge that I can conquer, always looking forward to that great feeling of accomplishment when I see my creation come into being on a 2-D surface.

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.

Painting

I studied painting under the instruction of Brad Spence from 2008 to 2011. During that time I have taught my good friend, a Biology major, the different skills and techniques that I have learned, reinterpreting the exercises I had been taught. I was able to see her skill grow and it made me believe that all you need is passion and a little bit of instruction to be a good painter. Today I am going on to my second year of getting my Masters in Fine Art at California Institute of the Arts; where I continue giving advice to college painters, and participate in the C.A.P. teaching program.
