Party caricature artist with 4 years experience gives caricature drawing lessons in New York City

Methodology

I first discuss with the student what they want to get out of the lessons. Each student is different, but my focus is on specific techniques, such as how to get a likeness, what features to look for in a subject, and different ways to draw those features. Depending on the student, conversation might also include how to interact with your subject, pros and cons of different materials, and career advice.

Background

I am a caricature artist with 4 years experience drawing caricatures at events such as birthday parties and weddings. People respond very well to my friendly outgoing personality, and I have a natural gift for communicating with people, especially children. I have degrees in illustration from Pratt and the Art Academy of Cincinnati.

Rates
