Art & Design Instruction

Discover and nurture your inner artist. Your art & design instruction will be tailored to your personal skills and understanding of the art making process. Initially we will focus just on drawing skills. Drawing classes will focus on the fundamental foundations of exploring shape, scale, perspective and light. Gradually, as you progress, you will explore observational drawing, as well as creating imagery from your imagination which will help you foster your own visual language. Students with a digital background will be offered one on one training in the principles of good graphic design. Digital training will be conducted on your computer at your site or over Skype, the training platform will be Mac computer within the Adobe Creative Suite of programs with special training directed in Photoshop.

Drawing, sketching, and having the ability to materialize the images of one’s mind on paper are skills that will open many doors of success in your life. In an era when school budgets disregard the arts and the visual art curriculum you should not let your passion and talent go unnurtured. I believe that proper instruction can propel your skills, talent and vision to open doors in the academic and professional world. My experience in portfolio preparation for high school art programs and college admissions is a valued service I can offer any student.
