My name is Matt and I am a tutor for students looking to get ahead in Art. I am a career doodler who has taken his lifelong love of drawing and turned it into a wonderful career doing freelance illustration for a variety of clients. Art has always been a huge part of my life, and now I look forward to the oppurtunity to utilize my extensive training to help young artists reach their full potential by emphasizing a three part teaching system:

1) Art history - you can not become a great artist without first studying the great masters of the past and present (There is a reason they are known as MASTERS!)

2) Art science - when drawing a figure you must have a basic knowledge of anatomy, form and shadow etc. When painting you should have a knowledge of why the paint does what it does and how to make it work for you, not against you

3) Art technique - By learning the proper techniques for using different media, you can find the ones that truly accentuate your personal style.

Most importantly, art is supposed to be fun! It is not your usual school subject that is based upon right or wrong answers, art is a personal exploration of one's own creativity and as long as you have the passion and put in the effort, I promise to help you on your way to becoming a successful artist.

Drawing

I have recieved a Masters of Fine Arts in Illustration as well as a bachelor's degree in Fine Arts. I have studied all forms of two dimensional art, with a concentration on drawing and painting for books and editorials. I have worked as a professional artist for almost seven years now and I love to pass on all the things I have learned to the next generation to give them a head start in the art world.
Painting

Painting

As I said, I have both a bachelor's and master's degree in art and have been working as a freelance professional artist for the past seven years, concentrating primarily on drawing and painting for books and editorials. I have spent the last few years doing children's book illustrations in watercolor and acrylic paint.
