About Aaron

Drawing has always been my strength, my craft, and my way of communicating with others effectively. As an artist, I specialize in creating line art drawings and illustrations and have had the opportunity to work with New York’s Newsday as an illustrator, as well as Scholastic and other publishing companies, working additionally as a graphic artist.

I have also combined my strengths in drawing with graphic design to create my own brand of greeting cards.

As a tutor, it is my goal to bring students to a level of appreciation and understanding of drawing through practices and exercises involving perspective, still life studies, anatomy, and drawing from life.

It is also my goal to help students increase their understanding of drawing concepts by way of observing the works and application of concepts of drawing through various artists of different schools and time periods-ranging from Leonardo Da Vinci of the Renaissance, to Sergio Cariello, an artist that has contributed to both Marvel and DC Comics. While some time will be dedicated to this, more focus would be on the student drawing.

My sessions will utilize various types of dry media, mainly pencil, charcoal, ink, and marker. The main focus is centered around the various elements of drawing.

I strongly believe in improving abilities through practice. Therefore, I definitely encourage students to keep a sketchbook in order to keep a consistent practice of all of the methods we discuss in each session. I encourage students to draw from their environments on a regular basis, utilizing the concepts we cover in the sessions.
