Outstanding and unique portraits and landscapes
I enjoy teaching art.
Excellent teacher & classes. Never is intimidating. Always patient and knowledgeable. Looking forward to my next class.
I had a excellent lesson in water color. I especially appreciated Jerry's patience, & relaxed style of teaching. Clearly, an artist willing to share history of his style. I look forward to future lessons.
Jerry inspired me to start painting and became my mentor. He has taught me valuable skills that I routinely use. For example, he taught me how to transform a complicated landscape into a manageable painting by using the layer by layer Macchia technique. Jerry has also taught me how to transform a realistic picture into an impressionist style painting. He brings a balance between realism and impressionism. I am in awe of his talent and knowledge and I highly recommend him as an outstanding teacher and mentor.
Evaluate current skills and begin at whatever level the student is at.
