I have step-by-step lessons that are simple for students of all ages to understand.
My goal for students is to learn and be
confident in drawing.
Perfect! Even though we’ve only had a couple lessons, I’ve learned and drawn more in 3 weeks with Henry than I had in the past year trying to learn by myself online.
Online learning and taking art classes in school may work for some people, but nothing beats having someone right beside you to answer questions, to point out mistakes, to motivate you, etc.
Henry is easygoing and friendly, which makes the lesson fun instead of boring. He also caters his lessons to individual skill level, and emphasizes the importance of the fundamentals.
Overall he is a great teacher and will definitely help you along in your art journey
- See the response Henry : Takako is a wonderful student. She's the type of student every instructor wants to teach. She really wants to learn to draw. I am so encouraged to see her learn and grow from each lesson.
Perfect! Henry is thoughtful, skilled and helpful. He takes time to ensure you have the skills to accomplish what you've set out to accomplish as an artist.
- See the response Henry : Mikala is such a wonderful student to teach. She is very respectful, she listens and takes notes. She impressed me with her drawings.
Perfect! Henry has been an immense help through my artistic journey in applying to various art universities, including Emily Carr - which I was later accepted into. His teaching style is relaxed and patient: he is aware that it takes time for a student to fully understand the material at hand. I am being taught the foundations of drawing in a structured and thoughtful way, where each concept builds on the other. This has greatly helped me improve in a short period of time and become a better artist.
- See the response Henry : She is an ambitious student willing and wanting to learn. She is learning and growing with two lessons already.

Henry has been teaching my daughter for a while now and I have seen a great improvement in her drawing. Henry is very patient and friendly, I'd recommend him to anyone wanting to improve their drawing skills.
I've been taking drawing lessons with Henry for the past year or so, and in that time I've learned a lot. I had no drawing experience before (total beginner), and Henry has taught me the fundamentals in a way that I found easy to approach, understand, and practice.
Henry's method of teaching (for beginners, at least) is in breaking down complex tasks into smaller, more basic steps - this has helped me to train my eye, and to see any complex drawing project as a series of smaller, more manageable elements.
I've enjoyed taking lessons with Henry. He has a friendly, and personable teaching style, which makes the learning process enjoyable, and has kept me engaged with my drawing practices.
I would highly recommend Henry as a drawing instructor here on superprof!
Henry develops a positive and fun rapport with all learners. Along with his strong background in arts, Henry greatest strength is his belief that all learners can achieve a high level of success.
I learned a lot from Henry about drawing. What benefits me most is that Henry taught me how to analyze and get the structure of the object to be drawn by breaking it down to such basic shapes as cubes, cylinders and how to draw these basic shapes which actually all objects consist of. Henry also taught me useful techniques to make my drawing more accurate, for example, how to use proportions, plumb line and negative space.
Learning perspectives from Henry has been a fun part, especially the two-point perspective.
Learning drawing from Henry brought me a new perspective of observing this 3D world. It brought me some interesting experience of converting things between two dimensions.
