Types of Instruction
My purpose as an instructor is not to teach you how to paint a particular type of painting or genre, but to provide you will the skills that empower you to successfully realize your unique vision. I strongly believe that everyone can learn to draw or paint with the proper training. Granted, for some it will come easier than for others; and for all it takes practice and dedication. The first step is learning the visual language of art through a solid understanding of the elements & principles of art. The second is the mastery of the craft (control of the materials and processes used to draw and paint). With a solid foundation of these basic skills comes the ability to create successful paintings.
