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.

Drawing

For fifty years I have been a commercial artist; father and grandfather. I can teach anyone, of any age how to see and draw.

I will teach you simple steps and tricks so that you can draw any subject, in any medium, in any size. I majored in Commercial Art at the University of Washington, and also owned a Commercial Art Studio and Advertising Agency in Seattle. I am currently working as a Creative Marketing Consultant and Watercolor Artist. Invest one hour and you will be amazed at the results.

Painting

The same description applies to Painting... I can teach in all mediums; how to use color and an understanding of the color wheel.
