I have successfully taught many children and adults fundamental traditional representational drawing and painting skills.

I like the fact that he is not skipping any steps ; he's very detailed and knows how to build a foundation. As a fellow educator I can tell he knows what he's doing.
I have had 3 months of oil painting instruction from Jonathan. I continue to enjoy painting as I learn various techniques. Jonathan is flexible, knowledgeable, and patient.
I first listen to each student to learn about there past art background , and ask what their artistic goals are. I then explain my teaching methods , set some goals , supply a material list and schedule the lesson(s) to learn in a friendly supportive environment.
