Beginner: Where do I begin?  Which medium do I use?  What are Tonal Values?  How do I get my brush to do what I want?  

Getting Started:  What do you mean by composition?  How can I guarantee a good composition?  How do I use my color wheel, and why?  Do I draw first, or paint first?  Why is the background so important?  

I Want to Learn New Stuff: I've been painting (or drawing) forever, but I haven't ever developed skills to really be able to do whatever I want - consistently.  

Achieving Results:  How do I bring it all together and get the results I want?  Instruction + Practice + Practice + Practice, and a little guidance… 

Advanced and Independent Coaching:  I want to do it my way! (And I already know all that other stuff… or don’t care about that other stuff – “It interferes with my vision”!)  

I want to improve on Perfection: I am pretty confident, and I love my work, but I feel like I could use just a little coaching to enlarge my reach and scope?
