I am a classically trained artist who has benefited from a long lineage of teaching artists dating back to 19th century France and beyond. As part of this tradition, an important part of my artistic practice involves sharing the knowledge that's been passed down to me as well as the lessons I've learned from experience in my own studio.
I strive to create a professional, supportive, and non-judgmental environment in my classes to keep the focus on learning and allow students to calmly approach what can be the very difficult task of creating art.
I'm available to teach a regular art class or a one-time workshop. I am qualified to teach drawing, oil/acrylic painting, and watercolor classes. If you're interested in taking a class or need teaching faculty for your organization, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

"Figure Drawing" Workshop
Tuesdays 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Students will work with a live model as a focus for artistic development and technical mastery. Topics will include structure, light and shadow, gesture, basic anatomy, and expression. The class will first explore how to create quick renderings of figures with gesture drawings and a two week pose. Next we will have a six week pose to really develop an entire drawing and fine tune value and proportional relationships. I will also demonstrate several methods of rendering using pencil and charcoal and discuss how to learn technique from art historical examples.
"Anatomy for Artists"
Thursdays and Fridays 1:00 pm- 4:00 pm
Get an in-depth look at the forms and structures of the body and learn how to use anatomical information to create beautiful, accurate figure drawings. New topics are introduced in a lecture each week and are explored in drawings from the skeleton, casts, and the live model. This quarter we will be exploring the extremities: the should, arm, and hands and the leg and feet. If it has reopened we will also make a class trip the the Bodies Exhibit.
