This is the reason why I not only got accepted into Art Center, but also became a success there. They not only taught me the skills that I needed, but also instilled a strong work ethic that I continue to cherish to this day.

Before I had lessons here, I drew a few doodles and labeled myself an artist.  They opened my eyes to a world of concepts, design, and inspiration.  Now I can sketch my ideas as fast as my brain can crank them out.

The most important thing I learned there is that you always have to fight to make your work better. Even more than artistic improvement, they help to create strength of character.

I spent 3 years learning from Tony and he coached us as if he were training Olympic athletes. He takes the student’s success very seriously to ensure you (the student) can reach your maximum potential.
