My passion is helping you become the joyful creative person you are!
Chances are you find real enjoyment in drawing and painting. Me too! But you find it hard to make time for your artistic dreams, right? Well, you're in good company.
It's tough to grow your art all by yourself. Are you making the progress you want all by yourself? No?
I can help.
You can build significant skills in every area of your personal creativity - and have bottomless fun doing it. Let's partner to make it happen!
I am a professional artist and teacher with a long history of working with artists like you to help break down barriers so you can express yourself with confidence in painting and drawing.
My studio and teaching practice is here in Cincinnati, in Pleasant Ridge. I offer private lessons here in my first floor studio, and teach regular classes at three different locations. I've taught at the Art Academy of Cincinnati and in the Univ. of Cincinnati's award-winning DAAP program, where I earned a Master of Fine Arts degree.
You'll find complete info on my classes and artistic experience at theloveofdrawing.com, and you may call or email me anytime to talk about your creative needs.
Thanks! I look forward to hearing from you.
I grow as an artist and as a person each time I work with other artists, and I am thrilled to share in their enjoyment and progress.
Charlie is approachable, knowledgeable, and can answer questions in a clear and concise manner. He is good with both beginners and advanced students. I have taken more than a few classes from Charlie and have always walked away with learnings that helped me expand my abilities in both drawing and painting. Charlie devotes full attention to his students and makes himself constantly available and asks questions and gives assistance on an individual basis. He is extremely talented, personable,and welcoming.
I am happy to share my time over the phone, or through email or Facebook, so that you feel comfortable choosing me to help you get where you want to go as an artist. Classes or private lessons are an investment you make in yourself, and I want you to get what you really need. Feel free to call, text or write.
I have been teaching art to creative adults and young people from junior high to college for more than thirty years, and now offer classes and workshops five days a week. I have a bachelors degree in art, and a Master of Fine Arts degree from the DAAP program at the University of Cincinnati. My life's work is helping creative people to reach their artistic goals through classes, workshops and private lessons.
My classes and workshops are individually priced to reflect the length of the class and the nature of the instruction; life drawing and portrait classes, for example, are priced higher to ensure the presence of a professional model for each class.
Private lessons usually run $50-60 for a 60-90 minute lesson, and supplies are often included in that price.
