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 are in bold.

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.

While living in NY I made a living by doing a lot of dark room work for some of America's best known artists.
