All Burning Academy (13 Units) Complete Online Pyrography Course
All Burning Academy (13 Units) Complete Online Pyrography Course

Are you struggling to achieve the look you want in your burnings?

Are you frustrated because the books and videos make it look so easy but when you try it’s a struggle and it looks awful?

Are you ready to focus on gaining a solid understanding of pyrography so you can finally burn all those wonderful images that inspire you?


If so, you are not alone, each year I teach hundreds of students these principles in live workshops around the country. People like you who see the potential and understand the joy of burning and who deeply want to develop the skills to create what inspires them.

Here’s the thing, live classes require travel, expenses, and are limited in time. And although they are wonderful to teach and attend there is only so much you can absorb in 2-5 days. Most of the content slips your mind as you struggle to remember as much as possible.

But this workshop is different, you see I’ve spent more than three years investigating online training approaches – and in fact, I even worked for a few years for one of the top instructional design firms in the United States (they create trainings for companies such as General Motors, Verizon, and AT&T) and I learned how to design exceptional courses that are engaging and teach in the shortest amount of time.

There is a very special – and unique – way to deliver art training so that you not only learn, but are successful in as short a period of time as possible. In my years of teaching I’ve mastered and taught using quite a few approaches for classes and workshops and this is by far my most effective method.

Most people will piece together their burning education. Picking up a technique here and a tip there. Buying books, videos, watching YouTube and spending money and time trying to patch it all together, struggling to understand how it all fits to create a practical approach that gives you consistent results.

The good news is, I have created a powerful Burning Academy workshop that will teach you exactly what to do to burn the subjects you desire and how to do it easily and quickly.


This Burning Academy is designed to help you…


– Feel confident each time you approach a new project because you know how to approach the work
– Know that each piece will look good even before you begin because you understand that even if you make a mistake, you can correct it.
– Master your tools so their use is effortless because they have become an extension of your hand.
– Understand what you are doing because you know why things happen and how to change the results if you need to.


Let me ask you this, how would it feel to be able to…


– start burning whatever inspires you right away instead of thinking about it for weeks, months, or even years?
– learn to burn on the subjects you are interested in so that you develop the exact skills you desire without wasting time with techniques you will never use.
– be in control at all times because you know exactly what to burn next and how to approach it so it is simple and fun.
– know you are improving with each burning because you understand how to evaluate not only the final burning but your own skill.


Would that be exciting to you?


Here’s the thing, you can keep doing what you have been doing,  
piecing together techniques and guessing,
getting the same old results
or you can get immediate access to my powerful training.


Here is what you will discover in my powerful “Burning Academy” training:


-How to break down a complex subject and simplify the burning process.
-Gain a solid foundation in all aspects of burning while focusing on your desired subjects so you are never “stuck” not knowing how to burn something.
-Learn the elements and principles of design so your burnings not only look great but have the visual impact you intend.
-How to create perspective and form for realism to give your burnings a life of their own.
-How to develop a rhythm so you can burn quickly, comfortably and enjoy the process.
-Special techniques to evaluate your work so you consistently create the best artwork possible.
-How to approach your work so you enjoy the process every time while easily gauging how you can improve.

Woodburning Critique Session
Private Woodburning Critique Session

In a critique you submit images of your project for professional guidance and suggestions via private video so that you can improve. In the past I have only given critique to current students but due to the number of requests I am now offering individual critiques for single projects.

This is how it works…

  • You email me photos of your project (one project only). You can email me more than one photo if you like, but it must be of the same project.
  • You ask me specifically what you are looking for feedback on.  Remember that this is a critique and not a lesson on “how to do shading” etc.
  • You provide me with a photo of the original image so I can accurately give you feedback.
  • You let me know what type of tools you are using and the wood you are burning on.
  • I will look over the piece based on your questions and record a 15 to 20 minute video with my response.
  • If I have concerns about certain areas I will offer advice as to how to correct them
  • I may also record a short technique demo if there is need or if time allows.
  • I will email you a private link to your video so you can download and view it at your convenience.
  • You may email me afterwards if you need further clarification so that I can answer via email.

Critiques are one of the most valuable component of my courses which is why I include them whenever I can. 

Once you pay, I will contact you via email to invite you to submit your work. I will respond to your submission with your final video within 3 days.
