We begin at the beginning by having the student render a portrait or still life drawing to see to what degree the student understands the principals of art. From there over the course of assignments, students are taught how to enhance their work with the addition of value, focus, line, texture, perspective, volume, color theory, tools including pastel, pencil, acrylic, and oil.
I have both a BA and MA in Fine Art and have taught and worked in the field since I was 18 years old.
