My typical process is to first meet them and go over what they want to learn from me and talk about how I can help them. I have a vast knowledge of art history, art movements , techniques, in painting and drawing. I usually provide a syllabus if they want one. I generally find out if the lessons they desire is for a hobby or towards a career. I then give them a list of materials they will need to purchase and where to buy them
