"Through Keita's teaching, I've been able to build a proper painting foundation, filling in gaps in some practical fundamental knowledge in my own personal study. How to render convincing three-dimensional form, principles of light and applying it to colour, and approaches to streamline the painting process were some important things I've learned. But perhaps more importantly Keita was able to illuminate for me how to apply these things to broader concepts involving composition and design when it comes to picture making, creating a more holistic basis for my practice. Keita has been generous in his teaching, sharing his studies, stories, and an openness when addressing questions posed by students. I would wholeheartedly recommend spending some time with Keita for anyone who wishes to build upon their painting practice."

Caroline Ji

"Keita broke down classical painting into logical, easy to understand procedures and principles with his expertise and knowledge. Painting started to make more sense, and I was starting to see what made a painting successful instead of "paint and hope for the best." Through Keita's guidance and teaching, I discovered new ways of understanding painting from idea to technique, and slowly finding my own sensitivities about painting."

Quinn Henderson

"I had been painting and making art for the better part of my early 20's having no real understanding of how to carry myself professionally as an artist. I knew that there wasn't another path for me and I also knew that I wasn't going to be able to figure it all out on my own. I had always rejected the idea of putting myself into debt to go to school, and was consistently on the lookout for someone who would be willing to teach me one on one. Growing up studying old masters, I just wanted to learn how to paint like they did without the ostentatious attitude that permeates the modern art world. Meeting and studying with Keita has been exactly what I always envisioned my education should look like. He provided me with unbiased opinions and genuinely was just interested in helping me grow and forge my own path. I cannot emphasize enough how valuable his education has been for me and my future as a painter, and how comfortable I've felt coming to him with all of my insecurities. I would strongly recommend learning from him in whatever capacity you can afford."
