There's nothing more gratifying than seeing students realize their potential. I nurture the creative potential in each and every one of my students. My classes are thought provoking, challenging, and inspirational; as well as fun.
I have students from all walks of life, age groups, and skill levels. I nurture the creative individual and relish in the outcome. Sharing my life's experiences as well as art history and art techniques with my students brings the best out in me.
I liked Carlos's overall sensibility. He encouraged us in our efforts at personal expression; he always had praise. But he also challenged us to grow and stretch and would point out weakness that needed more practice. The exercises he gave us in our sessions were extremely creative. I learned so much about letting go, about how to free my hand and mind, how to be whatever artist I wanted to be instead of fearing that I wasn't "doing it right."
Drawing and painting in my life were new. Carlos was able, in a candid way to create valuable experiences in each interaction. I hesitated picking up a pencil but through a variety of interesting activities thoughtfully prepared, I began developing a genuine curiosity to explore more what drawing was all about. His assignments are thoughtful and engaging. His genuine interest in challenging me to the next level was a strong motivator. I am grateful with Carlos, because he invited me to discover the joy of drawing.
