Hello! I can teach private art lessons in drawing mediums such as graphite, charcoal, & chalk pastels. Can also teach painting lessons in acrylic and oil mediums. Learn about different techniques in using each medium, light and shadow, color theory, color mixing, how to use photo reference to create better paintings / illustrations, portfolio development, college admissions, etc.

I can also teach skills in graphic design programs such as Adobe InDesign, Adobe Photoshop & Adobe Illustrator. Learn how to use each program seamlessly in conjunction with each other, how to setup layouts, styles, color correct photos, restore old photos, create and draw vector graphics, how to layout books, setup files for print production, how to request printing quotes, etc.

I have a fine art background, degree in Fine Art with a concentration in Illustration. I have 10 years of professional print graphic design and art direction experience. I have many skills to impart whether you would like private lessons for your child to develop their talent, high school students needing help developing their portfolio for college admissions, college students needing help developing their portfolio, or adults looking to develop their skills or learn basic graphic design programs: InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator.

I have a flexible schedule and can meet you at your home, at a public space or conduct lessons in my home. If we meet in a public place for graphic design lessons, you must have a laptop with access to Adobe software. If we meet in your home for graphic design lessons your home computer must have Adobe software access. Lessons must be at least one hour in length.
