    I have been taking lessons from Larry for the past 5 yrs. He is so easy to understand, visualize, making sense of his lessons. Stays on subject gets students involved in the learning role. I will continue taking his lessons until he stops. I have taken lessons with other Artists and left doubtful or afraid to ask questions, with Larry the comfort is there so the learning is easy. Love him!!

  • Cory Parish

    Larry is consistently patient and really encourages the student/artists to stretch themselves. I took my first class from Larry about three (3) years ago and had my first gallery exhibition this month. I’d say that indicates something about Larry as a teacher and mentor.



FAQs


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

I typically meet with the student in person, learn about their current skills, goals & aspirations & then we set out a specific, measurable plan to insure that the student meets those goals.  I am a technical & artistic advisor, but also an accountability partner & a source of inspiration & encouragement!


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

I’ve been creative all my life & am almost completely self taught!  I’m a model of what can be accomplished without art school or formal training!


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

I typically price by the hour or, if hosting a group class, by the class.


How did you get started teaching?

High demand for the technical knowledge, the high quality of my work & the fact that I’m an excellent teacher, led to any erous inquiries for private & group instruction.


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with students of all types, ages & interests!


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

One of my glass/photo students, who started this journey 3 years ago, had his first gallery show just 2 weeks ago!  To see my students learn, grow, overcome technical & creative obstacles & blossom, is why I teach!


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

Look at the instructor’s work.

Ask for a student reference.


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

what are the student’s goals?

Are those goals specific, measurable & realistic?

Am I willing to put in the hard work in order to achieve excellence in this?
