Having taught college credit courses at Great Basin College on drawing and painting .. I enjoy teaching and helping others find their creative path.
My focus is always on the fundamentals of art .. how to see.. how to draw and compose .. the importance of the dark and light design .. how to develop color relationships. Learning these elements is sometimes daunting but always rewarding.
An intense workshop experience is a great way to increase these skills while enjoying the camaraderie of fellow artists .. exhausting but inspiring :)
