My private painting lessons are weekly and scheduled in one hour increments. They are scheduled for one year at a time or coincide with the school year. The investment is $45 per hour per student.

The students who take my oil painting lessons are a diverse mix:

  • Age 10 to adult (seniors)
  • Beginner
  • Intermediate
  • Advanced career oriented or college bound students

During my painting instruction, I deal with black and white mediums to teach values, contour of objects, positive and negative shapes, mass drawings and many other ways to go about rendering objects.

Subject matter includes all major parts of the human anatomy, landscapes, seascapes, animals, still life, portraiture, etc. I also teach how to make color oil paintings of animals, horses, portraits, still life, along with color theory.

Most importantly, I focus on how to learn the technical skills of drawing and painting to make ones imagination come to life in color or black and white.

I also custom lessons to ones own needs.

For your reference, my educational background includes:

  • School of Visual Arts in NYC
  • Rhode Island School of Design
  • Art Students League in NYC
  • BFA and graduate studies from Syracuse University. Awarded number one illustrator in the class.
