I first connected with Edward Burke online several years ago, and was aware that he taught college art courses and museum art courses. These days all can access his knowledge and art lessons (at no charge) on his site Drawing and painting lessons with Edward A Burke. The knowledgeable Burke attended the School of Visual Arts in New York City and his lessons offer up his knowledge incorporating a wide range of art historical styles.
