I know how hard it is to find meaningful drawing and painting instruction that gives positive results, and that's why I'm so passionate about helping other people develop their natural talent and achieve their potential. I will help you train your eye, as well as your mind and your hand, so that you have to ability to create whatever it is that you wish to create. Whether you want to develop a portfolio to help you get into a school or get hired for a certain job, or you've already been to school but were unhappy with the education you received, you just want to tighten up your skills, or you just want to try something new, I look forward to working together to help you achieve your goals.
I have a Master's degree in painting, but I specialize in both drawing and painting. I've been trained in both academic realism and contemporary illustrative techniques, and everything in between. We can draw in any medium, from charcoal to graphite to ink, and paint will generally be done in oil. Topics covered will be basic drawing fundamentals, materials and methods, form drawing, still life, figure, head, and anything else you may wish to work on. If you'd like to start at the beginning, we can tighten up your drawing skills, then work on bridging the gap between drawing and painting seamlessly. I will give weekly exercises and homework that will be progressive so that each lesson will build upon that last, in easily digestible amounts of information.

Jonny guided me to have put my own idea on the painting and helped me a lot on the basics, he showed me some awesome tricks about water color. It really helped me on my project and my grade. Also I had a really good time.
I really enjoyed my first lesson with Jonny. He was very patient, easy going and super at explaining things.
I kept thinking to myself “why didn't any of my art teachers before ever explain that to me?” I had many “ah-haa” moments. I feel he teaches the “why” behind everything. And, I feel he really cares and want you to get it.
I can’t wait until the next session.
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.
I received my graduate degree from the New York Academy of Art. I am classically trained in both drawing and painting. I will customize our tutoring sessions to meet your specific needs. Whether it's classical life drawing, animation, illustration, or any other specific type of drawing you'd like to work on, I can help you.
I have a master's degree with a concentration in painting from the New York Academy of Art. I can help you with oil, acrylic, or gouache, but I specialize in oil painting. I can teach you figure, portrait, still-life, landscape, master copy, color theory, whatever you're interested in.
