About this pro

I am personable and compassionate. Let's have fun and grow together. 

I enjoy empowering my students with the skills to get any art project done or just find peace using art as therapy. The actual practice of teaching and learning how to draw or paint is loaded with life tips and helpful skills. I have been teaching art for 8 years now and have had students of all ages and walks of life. My students ALWAYS are more relaxed and confident after our sessions.

    First, he’s knowledgeable of his craft. He’s patient, professional, caring and has a heart for people and will spend quality time with you if needed.

    Yusef is very skilled in teaching his students on the mechanics of art while making his classes fun and interactive. I’ve never seen someone draw/paint with such precision and detail in such a short timespan. He’s a once in a lifetime talent! I’d recommend Sef’s art classes and events to any of my friends and colleagues.
