About Jeffrey


Bio

My name is Jeffrey, but I go by JR professionally. I would like to let all potential students know up front that I am only going to tutor online; this is for everyone's safety and health. My studio is set up to give demonstrations online.

I like to consider myself a professional artist who teaches. I have been an artist for my entire adult life, but entered teaching art 8 years ago. Unlike many art teachers/tutors, I bring literally decades of experience to my lessons. As a member of a CO-OP...

My name is Jeffrey, but I go by JR professionally. I would like to let all potential students know up front that I am only going to tutor online; this is for everyone's safety and health. My studio is set up to give demonstrations online.

I like to consider myself a professional artist who teaches. I have been an artist for my entire adult life, but entered teaching art 8 years ago. Unlike many art teachers/tutors, I bring literally decades of experience to my lessons. As a member of a CO-OP studio and the Portrait Society of America, I still show at galleries. I have worked as an art director and graphic designer at large corporations. My experience in the art industry is wide. I am licensed K-12, but have taught adjunct and adults (on the job training).

I never stop creating and developing my own work, I am always looking for ways to become better at what I do; this passion you will experience with me guiding you. I am looking forward to tutoring students who want to develop artistic skills and art knowledge. I would like to take on older high school/college level students. I specialize in drawing, painting, art history of Western civilization (which would include architecture).

As stated, I am passionate about what I do. I do not just teach art, I make it. I will never stop making it. I believe that art history is intertwined closely with the disciplines of art such as drawing and painting. An artist has to have the historical context in which to investigate and develop their own work. Without understanding the influences of artists who came before us, it makes it difficult for a developing artist to advance their own work.

As I occasionally do live drawing feeds online already (cannot say where, sorry!), I have a studio that is set up to teach entirely from distance. My lessons will be focused and help you either improve your skills, your knowledge of art history, or build a more solid portfolio of work. I am looking to share my knowledge and experience. Honestly, you will be hard pressed to find an art
