About Daniel

In 2010, I enrolled at Ringling College of Art and Design, where I studied for 4 years and earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Illustration, the art of telling stories through images. In my 3rd and 4th years of college, I began to tutor peers and assist my teachers in explaining class concepts to younger or less experienced students. I regularly gave demonstrations in class and explained my methods and how they derived from important artistic lineages.

My love for teaching is a direct result of the incredible teachers– some professors, some friends– that I have constantly surrounded myself with. The breakthroughs I made under their tutelage and guidance made me want to provide that same feeling of elation to others.

Drawing and painting is difficult, but never boring. It is challenging, but rewarding. I strive to provide my students with a strong foundation of techniques and concepts that can be used for the rest of their careers– these are the fundamental building blocks of great design, great drawing, and ultimately great picture-making.

I provide tutoring for drawing and painting in many different mediums, including, but not limited to Graphite, Charcoal, Pastel, Watercolor, Acrylic, Gouache, and Oil.

Much of this learning is about experimentation, so if you have something interesting you would like to explore that isn't on this list, please contact me and let's hash it out! Anything that makes a mark can be drawn with.

I look forward to hearing from you soon. Let's make something beautiful together!

Background Check: Passed

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Drawing

I have been drawing for almost 15 years with serious intent. In 2010, I enrolled at Ringling College of Art and Design, where I studied for 4 years and earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Illustration, the art of telling stories through images. I have been to numerous workshops and demonstrations by incredibly gifted teachers and beyond my normal coursework, I gave myself assignments and challenges and immersed myself in the work of improving my abilities.

In my 3rd and 4th years of college, I began to tutor peers and assist my teachers in explaining class concepts to younger or less experienced students. I regularly gave demonstrations in class and explained my methods and how they derived from important artistic lineages.

Painting

I began studying painting in earnest more than 10 years ago. Since then I have gained much experience both in technique and theory from numerous skilled teachers. My specialty is in representational portrait painting.

In 2014 I graduated from Ringling College of Art and Design with a BFA in Illustration, the art of telling stories through images. I excelled as a painter among my peers and have a great deal of experience giving demonstrations of my methods and process, explaining essential concepts and linking them to various artistic lineages.

I focus strongly on fundamental ideas– the building blocks that will be the foundation to your success in painting, drawing, and any artistic medium.
