Teaching

My classes place a heavy emphasis on a classical, traditional understanding of the craft of drawing and painting. I believe that by systematically breaking down complex topics to their most simple components, students can achieve a thorough understanding of the principles required to create convincing illusions in their drawings and paintings.

I teach a variety of classes at the University of Wisconsin - Madison, and also at my studio, the Atwood Atelier.  These classes include Drawing Fundamentals, Figure Drawing, Portrait Painting, as well as private lessons. For current listings, and to sign up, please visit the UW's site here, and the Atwood Atelier's site, here.

In addition to my classes in Madison, this summer I will also be teaching a workshop at the Peninsula School of Art in beautiful Door County, Wisconsin. More information can be found here.
