I have extensive experience in adult education in the arts:



  • Adjunct professor of art at McGill University (School of architecture) in 1999-2013.

  • Observational sketching to mechanical engineering students; lectures on visual literacy to medical students. 

  • Teaches regularly at the Haliburton School of the Arts at Sir Sanford Fleming College in Ontario.

  • Master classes in Toronto (co-instructor with: Jean-Pierre Larocque, Brian Smith);

  • Intensive workshop: The sensitized eye: where art, medicine and anatomy interact, to first year medical students at the Harvard School of Medicine in Boston, Massachusets in 2008-2013

Teaching philosophy:


I am only a guide, I need no following.  I consider that painters of all levels should submit their work for periodic critique and coaching in order to progress.
