Introduction to Drawing

It is a mystery how some people seem to be able to draw ANYTHING without any effort at all. Others have to sit over their drawing for hours, erasing and tweaking…

Well.  A person who can draw just anything, so easily, is really rare.  And a person who wants a final product just so perfect, well, not really that unusual. But honestly, most of us need a little help learning how to draw – stuff.  There are SO MANY BOOKS to help people learn to draw, and if one is patient, and studies them carefully, one CAN learn to draw.  Or I can help you.

I teach people how to draw.  Little People, and bigger people. I will teach you how to accomplish what you visualize, in black, and white, and gray!  Learning simple strategies for effective results.  My results are affected by genetic tremor.  BUT.  I still LOVE TO DRAW –  and so can you!

Acrylic Painting

Some people really like the simplicity of painting with acrylics.  They mix easily with water,  dry fast for easy painting and handling, can be painted on canvas, wood, paper, glass, metal, you name it, they can be painted on it, except oil base paints.  Then you need special primers!

Acrylics are less expensive that oil paints, and can be used “Impasto” like thick oil paints, or in a watercolor, flowing wash style.  Or both!  They are so versatile, people often start with acrylics before anything else.

I teach all my classes for – beginners to advanced – so you need not start with acrylics, unless you just want to!

I teach four different types of acrylic painting classes:
