About this pro

I am dedicated to teaching children and adults of all ages the techniques and skills needed to become an artist. Whether you want to inspire your three-year-old to express herself through paint, or you noticed that your ten-year-old has talent in drawing that you would like to encourage, or even if you have always wanted to try art but never knew how, I can help. I offer painting and drawing classes beginners and advanced students.

I enjoy providing classes for children, families, and adults looking to expand their artistic abilities. Through our painting, drawing, and specialty lessons, you can learn both the techniques and the skills needed to become an artist. Let loose your creative side.  I enjoy passing on the love for art and what it has to offer for each individual.

    He is very easy to work with and is good at helping to explain things/techniques and watches how you work then offers suggestions on how to proceed.

    No pressure, friendly Time to ask questions Explains steps Difficult to see true colors at time with our video and lighting Zoom.

  • Chris Archer

    Jeff is very well versed in the art of painting. If anyone is just starting out and want the most bang for you buck, this is the guy to go too. I am pretty sure he could teach anyone at any level though. Painting lessons this is your guy, bar none.

  • Abigail Reyes

    He gave me helpful advice on one of my pieces for my AP Portfolio and it allowed me to improve more of my other work. Mr. Lancashire was very accommodating and had his classroom open during lunch hours for extra help and it allowed those who needed more time on their portfolios to complete it in a timely manner.



FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I typically talk with them about their goals for the lesson, the budget they are looking at, and interest in continous lessons to improve and master that material. 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have a BFA in Art and have owned and ran an art studio teaching all ages before I moved to Colorado. I have also been teaching art in the public schools for the past 10 years ranging from grades 2 through 12th. I have also been a private art tutor on the side as well.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Given the state of the world, I prefer teaching remotely. I would charge $20 a hour. I love teaching art and know you would get the same feeling of accomplishment remotely. I would use Zoom, Google Meet, Skype, etc.  I look forward to seeing you soon.


How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching in the corporate world and then ended up in the classroom shortly after. I love paintin, scuplting, and drawing on the side for myself.


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with toddlers up to adults working on  many different mediums. Some were quick starters and others took  more time, but everyone of my students were fully capable of the mastering the art they were interested in.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

When I ran my art studio in Florida, I ran a paint workshop for autistic kids in Central Florida. It was a pleasure seeing their eye light up after seeing what they had accomplished.

I would ask the student to ask the following questions:

1. What are your qualifications?

2. Did you go to school for art?

3. Can you provide samples of your work?

4. What is your favorite type of art?

5. What can you do to help me master drawing, painting, etc?

6. Are you flexible how the lesson is taught and what is taught?


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

1. What are my goals for learning this art material or type?

2. Can I pick the topic of the lesson?

3. Am I flexible on my goals  for this lesson?
