I teach classes on a variety of arts-related subjects: 
  * piano, sight-reading, song-writing; 
  * realistic drawing techniques;
  * comic book creations & anime drawing styles;
  * digital arts, Photoshop, graphic design.

I hold a Bachelors in Fine Art from Virginia Tech and a Masters in Art Education from Virginia Commonwealth University. I taught digital art as a public high school teacher  and as an adjunct university professor; now I enjoy teaching digital art to students online.  I love teaching drawing, painting, sculpture and Photoshop to learners of all ages. I've been teaching for 20+ years and running my own piano studio for 10+ years. There's a special place in my heart for creative works and the artists that make them, especially fantasy stories and narrative artworks, comics and graphic novels.
Materials Needed
💻  Computer or Laptop (Photoshop doesn't work on Chromebook.)
💻  Photoshop or Photopea
💡   If you have a good internet connection, you can use the free, online Photopea software, which works just like Photoshop, even on a Chromebook. You can find it here: https://www.photopea.com/
🖼️  Download any photos you need BEFORE the start of class

⛔ Do not use the iPad version of Photoshop for this class. It looks completely different and may confuse your learner.
⛔ Photoshop Elements is NOT the same as Photoshop.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Photopea.com is free online software that works nearly exactly like Adobe Photoshop. Students who have not purchased and installed Photoshop on their computer may opt to use Photopea instead if they have a strong internet connection.
Please download any images you think you will need before class. For example, my cover image is Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story starring as Starman driving Elon Musk's Tesla through outer space. I downloaded two 'large' size photos: one of Buzz Lightyear and one of Starman.
