Hello, my name is Andrew McManus, and I am a realist draftsman and painter living in Philadelphia. I am a former Sergeant in the U.S. Marine Corps, and graduated from the Pennsylvania State University’s Schreyer Honors College with a degree in Painting and Drawing. My thesis was on how to teach fundamental drawing skills efficiently and correctly to beginning students.
I helped found Cambridge Street Studios: a non-profit school, teaching the best practices in realistic painting, drawing, and sculpture. Along with two of the coolest guys around, Anthony Ranalli, and Jeremy Deck, I am teaching, continuing my studies, and running the joint.
I am pleased to offer comprehensive private art lessons in the Philadelphia area, covering drawing, oil painting, and everything in-between. I teach a very realistic way of drawing, enabling you to see the world how it is, and translate that to canvas or paper. Ages 13 & up, and all skill levels are welcome. Please see this page for more details.
