- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Usually how I structure classes is the first class we do a few basic warm-up drawing or painting exercises so I can see where you're at and take a look at any other work you've done recently. Then we can talk about if you have a specific project in mind, how long you'd like to take the lessons for, what you're hoping to achieve etc. so I can tailor a curriculum exactly for you and your unique strengths and interests.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
