About this pro

Im a workimg artist with a passion for helping people understand the creative process. Im great at breaking down processes and explaining things in an easily digestible way.

I’ve walked a long road as a professional artist of over 20 years so I'm able to meets students wherver they are in the creative learning process. 

You can see my work here:

www.bragino.com

At one point in my life I used to be very frustrated as an artist because I did not have the ability to put down on paper what I imagined in my head.

That frustration led me to study art in an obsessive manner unlocking little pieces of the puzzle along the way and finally getting to the point where I have complete facility over the creative picture making process. I'm no longer limited in any way from my most authentic expression. 

This is what I enjoy most about being an artist. Complete freedom to express myself and that's what I'm passionate about sharing with others. I know how I reached this point and I can show you how as well..

    Who wouldn’t wish to be mentored by a gifted and talented soul filled with a passion for art and a deep desire to inspire others to grow ??? This is Peter Bragino...

  • Anu Annam

    Bragino is extremely empathetic and wise, which in addition to his artistic knowledge makes him a great teacher. He was taught by the late great Jeffrey K. Fisher, and will pass on those excellent techniques in learning how to "see".

FAQs


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

I like to initially review some of the students work to assess where they are in their interest and skill level as an artist.

This can be done over email and then followed up with a Skype session to talk about their interests and goals. 


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

I've been a professional Fine Artist for over 20 years.

I studied figure drawing at the Drawing Studio of Long Island with American Illustrator Jefferey K Fisher.

I studied concept design, environment sketching and painting, digital painting, character design, the art of color and light, and anatomy through online courses at CGMA - The Computer Graphics Masters Academy. 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

My prices are:

- $50 per lesson 


How did you get started teaching?

Ever since I started learning art I've been excited to share that knowledge with others. The more I progressed the more I had to share. Most of my knowledge was obtained through persistence and dedication to my craft so I understand how frustrating it can be when things don't make sense yet. I help make sense of the creative process so that students can finally express themselves in a manner that's repeatable. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I've worked with students of all ages. I currently mentor my 7-year-old twin nieces in their creative pursuits. I also have older students that are retired and wanting to get back into art or finally pursue art in their lives. I can meet people at any level from beginner to professional. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I'm not sure I understand this question or it's relevance to teaching but...

I'm fond of the landing of the Falcon Heavy rockets onto their original landing pads by Space X. I think it's a beautiful display of human accomplishment and creative ingenuity. 


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

I would say to look at their portfolio. If their work inspires you then they might be a good teacher for you. 


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

Students should think about a few things:

- What kind of art am I interested in?

- What current and past artists work inspires me?

- How much time do I have to dedicate to studying art per week?

- Do I own a sketchbook? + (If the answer is no) Where can I buy one? :) (I love sketchbooks)
