Tips for artists are greatly appreciated
Nathan Mulroy is a classically trained artist from Eagle, Idaho. An early passion for drawing motivated him to attend an arts-focused high school and university, where he honed his skills as an oil painter. Nathan has experience teaching children and adults. He encourages new artists to redefine creativity as an expression of an individual persona. “Good art” is defined by a person’s ability to project a unique perspective, and Nathan is happy to open that door.
Made some very glib, rude comments toward older people. I was offended.
Nathan is really friendly, calm and give great instructions
Great job! He did an awesome job of guiding us through this painting. Mom had a great time
