About Leyton

Hello, I’m Leyton, an illustrator and adventurer of sorts currently living in Portland, Or. I recently graduated with a BFA (honors) in Illustration from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, Ca.

My experience:

I spent 3 months while I was in school tutoring children 8 to 11 years old in an after school art program, called Art Center 4 Kids. My responsibilities were to help the children visualize their creative ideas, as well as, help them with their individual obstacles. I had tremendous fun working with kids and look forward to gaining more experience tutoring your minds in the world of art.

I was also a teacher's assistant for 1 year where I helped students/peers (18-21 years old) with various group assignments and classroom drawing and painting exercises.


A little about me:

I grew up on bike rides through the woods, makeshift tree forts, and playing in the rain. The wilderness has always been like a home to me.

Most of my time is spent drawing — people, animals, and ordinary objects — and hugging my grumpy little dachshund, Maxwell. I have a deep passion for telling stories focused around nature (land, sea and space) that attract the attention of those who are young, as much as those who are older. Creating characters and illustrations for children’s picture and young-adult books is where I thrive. I like to work intuitively, the discovery of new things — like a tiny insect, a strange rock or the way a salamander walks — inspires each project I’m involved in. The world is full of these amazing little things that can turn a boring day into something peculiar.

In the spirit of Calvin and Hobbes "There's Treasure Everywhere!"

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Leyton adapted his lessons to where my child is in his skill level and used my child's interests in modeling new skills for him to learn. He is punctual, friendly, and extremely knowledgeable about drawing. I loved seeing how my child was able to practice what he learned and apply it to his own drawing at home, and he liked expanding his skills. I highly recommend Leyton as a tutor.
