I teach students from ages 8 through adult no matter what level of experience to draw and paint and reach their artistic goal with confidence - if you have the desire and willing to work for it - you will reach it! Beginners are welcome.
Lessons are personalised and you learn at your own pace.
I have been an internationally recognised professional artist all my working life as well as a former professor of Fine Art at colleges and universities in the UK and US including New York University. I see teaching as a way of giving back and offering my vast experience and knowledge to those interested in learning art. My studio is a place where you can learn and nourish your creativity.
Excellent, clear, comprehensive art instruction based on student's current level; for my daughter in the past year this has included perspective, positive and negative space, still life, and portraiture. Highly recommended.
I took classes with Alan for over a year, and would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking to hone their skills--whether they be an advanced or beginning artist. Alan has a very diverse artistic background, and is therefore able to create personalized lessons based on the various needs and interests of his students. As a teacher, he is very patient and flexible. Whenever I became frustrated with a piece, he would help me to step back and identify the problem, so that we could then work through my options for solving it. Over the course of the year, I have seen definite progress in my work, and feel much more confident in my artistic style and abilities.
My daughter loves going to Mr. Falk's lesson every week. She learns a lot from him. We love all the finished work she brings home.
Assess the students ability and create a personal program based on the skill level.
