I specialize in teaching observational drawing to students who want to take their art to the next level. I offer ongoing or occasional drawing lessons, and cover topics including, Still-life, figures, faces, and animals. I consider myself an art coach. Many students I work with are inhibited by the need to do a “perfect” drawing. I encourage students to take risks, get out of their comfort zone and try new things. My home studio is located in the DU area in Denver.

While learning the fundamentals, we can explore pastel, colored pencil and pen and ink. Each lesson is catered to the individual student. Let me know what your interests and goals are so I can build our lessons accordingly. Please bring a pencil, eraser and a 9×12 or 11×14 spiral bound sketchbook. See Supply list for more info.

About Acrylic Painting lessons
$110 1.5 hour session
$150 2 hour session
1.5 and 2 hour Painting Lessons can be made semi private (once a month) for an additional $30
Painting Lessons are most beneficial after learning about the basics of drawing. A painting lesson may include small color studies and quick monochromatic sketches in paint. We work from still life and photographic reference to study light and shadow. Depending on your goals and interests, we can develop special illustration projects, or still-life paintings that can be worked on in subsequent lessons (or at home) for a more finished piece of art. I offer painting lessons on weekends only and all materials are provided.
