About this pro

Have you always wanted to create without limits and make art that gets the attention of your friends and family?

We teach artists a process that anyone can learn and starts right from the beginning all the way through to creating realistic portraits, landscapes and still life setups. 

All materials are provided and lessons are delivered in the comfort of your own home so you can fit your art time into a schedule that works for you.

As you work through the course instructors are available to you every single day to look at your assignments and assist you to get past any challenges you experience along the way.

For more information on the course please visit http://www.evolveartist.com

It's an absolute joy seeing the students progress through the program and watch their confidence grow with each completed assignment.

It's especially exciting seeing how the students creatively use the skills to make their own unique art.

The other big reward is when we hear how the students newly found passion for art begins to influence and win the respect of the people around them as their friends and family begin to see them transform from hobbyists into real artists with serious skills.

    I like that this allows an artist to work at their own pace. You won't be rushed because all of the work has to be fit into a single semester. It can feel a little slow if you've had a significant amount of art practice beforehand though and are used to moving very quickly.

    Without any doubt the Evolve program is the best art instruction course I have done - live or on-line. It will do exactly what it says and even if you are a beginner you will achieve the sort of results that you only dreamed about. Provided you put in the work even at the early stages you will be so happy with what you can do. The video instructions are clear and you always have the ability to contact a teacher in the program if you need more help. There are live sessions twice a week that both add to the online course materials and give you an opportunity to talk directly to a teacher. This is a brilliant supportive program and a fantastic community to join. I can't recommend it highly enough to anyone who wants to take their art to the next level.

    What I love most about this program is that it's structured in a way that makes anyone be able to learn art and not just people that are "naturally artistic". I also love the progression in the training. It starts out with simple things and apply those concepts to later and more complicated work. And by the end of it, which could only about be 2 years, I'm confident that I will be a master at painting. I love this program and community it brings so much. The one down side it has is that I can't do it on a phone, but they're working on that and even without that feature it's completely worth it.

    Evolve Artist is by far the best art program I've come across, both online and in-person. Evolve focuses on developing strong fundamentals, which is surprisingly rare, given how necessary they are to being solid artist. Skills are built step-by-step from very simple beginnings, which is exactly what I needed. Like all online courses, Evolve has videos to show you what to do, but the thing that makes all the difference in the world is the personalized feedback for every assignment. This constant course correction has helped me more than any class, teacher, video, or book ever has. The Evolve instructors are all friendly, helpful, effective, and professional artists themselves. Being the best artist I can be, as fast as I can, is vital to my future career, and with Evolve, I'm convinced I'm in very good hands.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

When you are enrolled in the program your materials will be shipped to you the following day and you can immediately get started with your first assignment using just pencil and paper.  Once your materials arrive you will begin your first official assignment which is very simple, and upon completion, you will submit your work to be checked by our instructor team.  

As you advance with each assignment a new part of the course becomes unlocked so you always have clarity with what your next step is.  The education is delivered gradually so you can see yourself making progress with each assignment. 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

We believe that when it comes to art the most important qualification is the results that the students are able to achieve, and we have a proven track record of:

- Students generating commissions for their work
- Placements into top art colleges
- High dollar value scholarships
- Winning art competitions
- Students earning the respect of their friends, family and art peers as having developed a serious artistic skillset


How did you get started teaching?

I was a working professional illustrator and portrait artist for 30 years.  During this time I was self-taught and developed my own techniques.  

After my career in illustration, I opened a school where I developed the curriculum I now teach.  The curriculum has been simplified and refined over a period of ten years to give anyone with the desire to learn a clear path to realize their full potential as an artist. 


What types of students have you worked with?

We have worked with all types of students from high school students, adults and retirees.  As long as the student has a desire to develop these skills we can show them the path to mastery.

We have every type of students from complete beginners and hobbyists all the way to working professional painters, sculptors, and animators who choose to study with us. 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Before you hire a teacher, consider where you would like to get to with your art.

Even if it seems like your eventual goal is far from where you are now, ask to see proof that your instructor has been able to get other students to that goal.

We see realism as the ultimate pathway to develop a solid foundation for students to take their skills in any direction they use and have a proven record of consistent student results achieving that goal. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

We are open to any and all questions, however, we encourage students not to get too far ahead of themselves and instead to focus simply on learning and mastering the tasks at hand.

This step-by-step approach keeps students on track and consistently moving forward to gain confidence and clarity with each assignment.  

To address the bigger questions that come down the road we have live calls where students are encouraged to ask anything on their mind to stay informed with what is coming up as they continue on their journey to become accomplished artists.
