Teaching is a great passion of mine, and I absolutely love to share my knowledge of drawing and painting

Current Los Angeles Classes

Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Art (LAAFA)

8-week Portraiture Class
Starts July 18th

I am returning to LAAFA this summer to teach an 8-week course in Old Master portraiture.
During the golden age of painting from the 1600s-1900s, painting took on a sculptural approach, where brushstrokes reigned supreme in carving out form and texture. This portraiture class will focus on a sculptural approach to painting, as well as the “chiaroscuro” approach of the old masters, which used strong light and rich shadow to create intense and dramatic paintings. The instructor will conduct demonstrations to illustrate methods and materials, and the class will cover subject such as:  light vs. shadow, painting as a sculptural language of brushstrokes, designing powerful compositions using lighting, value, color, edges, and paint quality, and finally the use of oil painting mediums and varnishes. All levels are welcome, from beginner to professional.
