Private Art Classes
From an award winning artist
In the security of a professional private art studio
I have been teaching private and group art lessons for several decades.  I currently teach advanced pastel portrait lessons, life drawing and oil painting for all levels at the Charles Taylor Arts Center in Hampton in addition to offering private lessons from my home studio.  If you are interested in just a few fun and simple private classes or if you need something to advance you to the next top level of artististry please give me a call or email me for more information.  See an example of my internationally award winning work at

Classes are by appointment only and are held in my home studio in Newport News or in your home if it is with in a 30 mile drive. We can arrange for long term lessons at the same time each week, vary the times based on your schedule, or just meet once or twice.  I can teach up to 4 students per session.

$ 45 for one 2 hour lesson for 1 student. 
$ 80 for a 2 hour group lesson for 2 students
$105 for a 2 hour group lesson for 3 students
$120 for a 2 hour group lesson for 4 students
