Classes That Teach You To Succeed

My classes are unique in that they teach fundamental skills and help students develop a genuine understanding of their medium. I combine instruction and individualized guidance with plenty of hands-on student guidance in class. You will acquire the skills through traditional instruction and practice.


Learn Time Honored Classical techniques


The highest caliber of artistic education

The courses are college level based on an associates degree program. My curriculum is grounded in my own classical training as an artist and my more than 20 years experience as a fine artist and professional illustrator. These are NOT “paint-by-numbers” classes. You will learn the skills to create great art!

I offer instruction in painting, drawing, and specialized classes and workshops.
