Art Lessons

Category: Art / Creative
Description
I am a successful self-taught artist who loves to teach others how to tap into their creative side. I work with both children and adults and love to teach in many mediums including pencils, watercolor, acrylic,chalk and oil pastels, scratchboard, etc.
Relevant Education / Credentials
I am a self-taught artist. I went to college for drafting, not art. I study my craft constantly...Reading, testing, challenging myself to conquer a new skill or medium. I study prior artists to understand their techniques. Most instructors teach you formula art. You walk out and you can re-create what they taught you in that class, but you can't go to the park and paint the kids running, the clouds blowing in, the trees moving and the shadows casted. I TEACH you to paint your own creation, not to mimic a painting I created.
Years Experience: 10
