Classes

In all of my classes, I teach with the idea of Mastery at the forefront of my mind. I was blessed to receive a great classical education and am delighted to pass my knowledge and experiences as a professional artist along to you. Regardless of your prior experiences, I will start with the basics with you and work logically, structurally, and sequentially towards a full command of your artistic potential. My classes are enjoyable, but not casual. Brand new to art, or practicing for many years, I am only interested in working with students who are very serious-minded about their work and are unafraid to be pushed to higher levels. If you wish to receive the full value of my instruction, you will not seek to skip steps or modify your program.

I look forward to the opportunity to collaborate with you!

Sincerely

John
