are geared toward preparing portfolios for art high schools and for students who want to draw and paint & improve their skills. We focus on drawing and painting from observation using still life, figure drawing from a model, self-portrait, landscape & working from imagination. Students will develop drawing skills in proportion, composition, line & light & shadow and work in a variety of art media including pencil, charcoal, markers, pastels, watercolor, acrylic and printmaking. The classes are small and include extensive one-on-one instruction. I am very knowledgeable about the audition requirements at the art high schools & help parents learn about the schools including contact with parents of my former students.
