Francesco’s excellent teaching methods, knowledge, humor, passion for
the human form and all aspects of fine art. Students are fortunate to
have an artist of his level as instructor.”  

The class is designed for beginner to advanced students. You will see

assistance and feedback will be provided upon request from the student.
