I teach several different types of classes described below:
"Limited workshops" may be scheduled to last from 1 to 4 classes, three hours per class. These workshops will be themed, focusing on a limited number of skills for the duration of the workshop. I can accommodate up to 10 artists in a workshop.
"Long term" classes are designed to be comprehensive in skill building, beginning with working toward mastering drawing skills. Even though these classes are intended to taking the artist through comprehensive training, training may be blocked in at various times and weeks to accommodate scheduling need.
"Individual" or "Private" instruction may be arranged on a weekly or monthly rotating schedule, and can be limited or long term. You may want to focus on some aspect of drawing, mediums, or painting for a limited time. You may also schedule more long term lessons to help gain proficiency in a broader skill set.
You may also want to plan a "limited workshop" with another artist. This can be advantageous in terms of cost, and convenience in scheduling a model if one is needed.
Limited Workshops - per day - minimum 5 students $40 per day (Limited workshops are 3-4 days)
Individualized private instruction - $40 per class
Model fees are additional if a model is hired, portrait or figure* - $22
For a limited workshop, there is a one time model fee of $30
*Only artists age 18 or older are permitted to work with a nude figure model unless parent consents in writing.
Artists are welcomed at all skill/experience levels. Although lessons are taught accordingto individual ability and experience, I teach and coach at each easel individually. No one is ever expected to work at another artist's skill level.
Skillful, representational art is the goal. An individual artist's style develops as he progresses through skill building steps.
