Individual Art Coaching

I offer individual meetings with artists of all ages who are interested in taking their skills to the next level. I have 12 plus years of teaching experience and have taught hundreds of students over the years.  Currently I teach Beginning Painting at the University of Colorado, Boulder and previously I spent a decade teaching everything from Foundations, Drawing, and Painting at Prague College.  I am absolutely committed to giving my students as much as I can, and I’m happy to share all of my secrets!

What are you looking for?

I approach each student differently based upon their own personal goals. I’ll help craft a schedule that can keep you practicing the right things, in the right way! Over the ten years since launching painting-course.com I’ve received hundreds of messages asking for help on a variety of issues. I’ve distilled some common questions that I frequently receive to help you see if I’m the right online art instructor for you.

Can you help me to make an artist portfolio to get into Art School? 

Yes! Absolutely! Helping students realize what’s the best school for them, and how to put together their work is something I’ve done for years. Every school is unique and I’ll give you the inside scoop on how admissions committees work, and how to cater your work to your school of choice.

I feel like I’ve been painting for years and haven’t improved, can you help get me back on track?

No problem. I’m comfortable working with students of all ages, and all experience levels. Often times students may just need an outside eye to look at the work and see what’s going right, and what could use improvement.

Do you help students with navigating the art world?

Yes! I’m currently represented by Giampietro Gallery in New Haven Connecticut and have been a member of art scenes all over the world for decades.  I can give you the inside scoop on what galleries are looking for , and how to put your best foot forward when approaching them.

I always get stumped on what it is that I want to paint, can you help me become more creative?

I’m a firm believer that creativity can certainly be taught. In these instances where a student wants to level up their creativity I’m happy to work with you individually and really speak about your goals and desires as an artist and figure out just what it is that moves you to paint, and create!

Can I do the course with you?

Absolutely! This is one of my favorite options. I’ll send you a custom syllabus that we’ll follow throughout the duration of the course.  I’ll go through all of the fundamentals, how to mix color, how to apply paint, and everything else that is currently a part of my Beginning Painting Course. Please be aware that this option takes a three month commitment!

How will we meet?

I can call you on Skype and we’ll go over everything face to face. We will be meeting 3 times a month and each meeting takes 45 minutes.

How much does it cost?

Previously I did individual meetings but these proved to be kind of worthless since it really takes time to get to know you, and see any progress. For this reason I only sell the individual tutoring sessions as monthly blocks (3 meetings a month).

1 month – $299

2 months – $599

3 months – $899
