Classes & Tuition

Think Globally, Study Locally

In addition to creating my own work, I teach classes in classical drawing and traditional oil painting, as well as providing private mentorship. I offer these lessons through my private studio in Omaha, Nebraska, and occasionally through the Joslyn Art Museum as well. Below is a list of available drawing and oil painting classes currently being offered:

Lessons from a Master’s piece

A weekly, ongoing series of workshops built on contemporary classical ideas that guide our observations and practice towards forming a solid foundation in drawing and painting (in oils).

These sessions include working in both mediums, using short exercises and longer studies in order to analyze and eventually recreate a larger, painted composition of our chosen masterpiece.

***Currently – Because of the coronavirus – I have moved our group lecture/demos online. Due to this change in format, I have added additional, private feedback sessions for each student mid-week.

(When we are once again free to return to the studio as a group, the class will resume the once-a-week schedule to be held on Saturdays at my private home studio.)

*For more information regarding the curriculum and materials for this course, please contact me directly.

Private Lessons

Private Tuition

Some artists prefer to continue their development with the more personal approach of private study.

I can tailor lesson plans to meet your individual needs or help with specific projects you are working on. These sessions can exist in either the form of weekly instruction or one-off critiques and consultations.

Due to our current covid situation, all in-person lessons require masks, or are also available online via zoom.

  • Omaha, NE
  • by appointment only
  • daylight hours
  • $50/hour (or $500/12hr bundle)
