About Steven

I have a lifetime of teaching experience, from the volunteer positions as a teenager in day camps, to private tutoring in drawing and painting, and in the advertising and graphic design industries, where I was one of the first teaching consultants for Macintosh graphics software, such as Photoshop, Quark, and Adobe Illustrator. I have also taught figure drawing and basic drawing in my own studio, and in classes here and in Europe.

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 can't count on one hand how many days in my life since age 5 that I haven't completed at least one drawing; it is more natural to me than speaking, it seems. I have always met the right teachers at the right times where I learned exactly what I needed to learn in order to deepen my perception and open to a new, more dynamic level of self-expression through drawing. My teaching methods are varied according to age/experience levels, although the principles which I emphasize are consistently presented to all students: light, tone, form, shadow. For example, a sentence I always use has helped a lot of students: "the form of the thing is found in the shadows, not in the light. Light really means that the form isn't visible."
