Its very simple. Tho are main focus is in the style of "Bob Ross The Joy of Painting" wet on wet techie as seen on the most popular PBS painting show.

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

My process for working with a new student is I let my student be themselves and create a environment of freedom to not be afraid to fail. Because in all my classes we don't make mistakes we just have happy Accidents

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

I have over 10 years of experience teaching and educationing students in the fields of art. Over the course of 20 years in the US Army leading developing teaching and mentoring US Army Soldiers in mechanical engineering. I graduated from the Bob Ross school of art, US Army Leadership development and instructor Institution, attended Santa Ana College of Arts and life 

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

Yes I do for my Bob Ross Wet on Wet Painting classes only the rest is a case by case price 

How did you get started teaching?

In the military. I learned I had a knack for teaching while serving in the US Army

What types of students have you worked with?

All kinds all types. This is what I mean by or when I say my medium is you. Drawing from my experience in the US military instructional college Institute as well as inspiration from Bob Ross's philosophy on art and painting I have a very adaptable teaching skill and level. I have yet to find a student I could not be able to teach them at a their level of talent or be their abilities or inability to see their talent and finally I have yet not to be able to have a student to not overcome their fear of failure in any of my classes

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Teaching a special needs student with down syndrome that yes even she could paint like bob ross

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

Do they make you feel free to Express yourself and your invoice Without fear of failure 

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

Only one that is am I ready to explore strange New World and seek out my inner artistic voice with freedom to fail and make happy accidents not mistakes
