About Richard

Hello,

I would be happy to help you in your pursuit of the arts. I can help any student who wishes to build a portfolio to attend a major college art program, as well as help those who are floundering in an existing art program. I can also assist the student who wishes to have a tutor guide them through the studio arts, painting, drawing, design photography or photoshop for their own personal growth.

I have been active in the arts for my entire life. I have a Master's in Fine Arts and I have taught at universities, community colleges and built art programs for people with special needs. I have exhibited my work in galleries and have won art and photo competitions. I have been written about in Richmond Magazine and The Richmond Times Dispatch. I have had my work published in the "Baltimore Sun" and "The Caroline Progress" newspapers and "Civil War Times" magazine.

I am demanding of my students but I also believe that the arts should be fun and exciting. What I teach you can be applied to fine arts, graphic design or other artist venues. I will need to talk with you to find out what your needs are before I can give the specific lesson plans, however I can let you know that anything I teach will be strong on fundamentals and geared for helping you to understand the "how to" aspect of the arts.

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.
