I've been studying arts for 20 years, to include a foundation of realism, and rich art history to cover the basis of a variety of styles and techniques.
I use technical fundamentals and practice excercises that pave a foundation for personal exploration with proficiency and style.
My education is grounded in 8 years of heavy education from private school to private classes. My artistic awards payed my tuition, most were locally funded or provided by : the houston rodeo, National Scholastic, Culture Shapers, and Vase competitions.
Following education I took residency as a local tattoo artist and commission muralist/portrait painter. My personal favorite style is abstract and landscape painting with a cubism influence.

Not so much, as everyone will not have the same goal. I'm a fairly efficient teacher with a more "teach them to fish" method, to encourage letting go of the ropes as soon as abel. Typically the more time and energy put into a lesson, the more it will cost.
I've always been a teacher by nature, I just enjoy sharing the wealth of knowledge and resources.
Look at their personal artwork and if it speaks to you then follow your gut.
What do you want to achieve, is it a short term or a long term goal?
In example: Do you want to just paint one landscape, or do you want to be able to paint all kinds of different landscapes forever and ever?
