Here Is What Students say:

Ross Drago is an amazing art teacher for all levels of students.  He values raw expression and opening to the unconscious while also encouraging  the development of technical skills and honest critique.  He has been a huge influence on my art, and how I approach creative expression through painting.  R.G.

Ross gifts me with a renewed energy to approach and to paint each time I meet with him for a critique.  I come away with a better and deeper understanding of my work.  This acceptance allows me to experiment more and to paint “my way.” Ross’ uplifting words stir one’s creative forces.

Ross’ technical experience comes from years of painting. He knows all the answers. He is the second generation painter in his family.  Ross’ Father was a painter also. –W.K.
