I offer personalized Art & Design Instruction for beginners and professionals alike. Additionally I offer group classes on weekends for Children of all ages. All individual classes are tailored specifically for each individual and are based on their specific goals and skill levels. Most supplies are provided in class. It is however recommend that students purchase their own supplies for work at home. Considering the fact that I have over 50 years of Art experience, what I offer is a very unique opportunity to expand your creative goals and improve your technical skills in the field of acrylic painting. It is my firm belief that there is an artist in each and everyone of us ! Be inspired and let me guide you on your own Artistic Journey !
I absolutely love what I do and it never ceases to amaze me. I enjoy sharing my artistic vision and desire to inspire each and every one of you to spread your artistic wings and experience the joy of creation.
I am not an artist, but with Mr. Keaton’s classes he makes your experience rewarding. He showed me step by step how to paint a beautiful picture of the beach which I gave to my late mother who loved the picture I created. John is a true professional and he takes time with each student to show them his wonderful talent. Well done Mr Keaton
John Keaton was my graphic design art professor at Platt college back in 2001. He's a very detail oriented and knowledgeable professor. John is very artistic and a great singer also! I still keep in touch him until this day because not only was he my professor, I also see him as my mentor. He has a very positive attitude towards life and he always encourages me to live life to the fullest and any obstacles can be over come if I work hard at it.
Initially, I give students the opportunity to simply create whatever they wish to. Once I have established their skill levels, I offer advice on how they can improve on their work from a technical and creative standpoint. In so doing this allows each student to advance at their own pace.
I began studying Art seriously in High School, at night I took classes at The Philadelphia College of Art, where I took courses in Painting, Drawing and Children's Book Illustration. After that, I studied Advertising Arts in Hamburg, Germany, while in the United States Air Force. Beyond that point, I continued my schooling in Tampa, Florida at Tampa Technical School where I undertook classes in Illustration and Graphic Design. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Graphic Design and a Master's in Fine Art. My most recent courses were taken at Full Sail University where I am currently seeking a Bachelor's in Cinematography.
