ACRYLIC PAINTING LESSONS

Abstract Painting uses a visual language of form, color and line to create a composition which may exist with a degree of independence from visual references in the world. Abstract art, non figurative art, nonobjective art, and nonrepresentational art are loosely related terms. They are similar, but perhaps not of identical meaning.

A Complete List of Painting Supplies that every Acrylic Painter needs

1. Acrylic Paints. Ex: Golden Classic Theory Color, a-z Acrylics, Liquitex [brands]

2. Proper Painting Brushes [I‘d suggest six total in a range of sizes: two size 2 brushes, two size 6 brushes, and two size 12 brushes. One of each pair should be a flat brush (with a squared-off brush tip) and the other should be a filbert brush (with a slightly rounded tip).

3. Newspaper
4. A charcoal pencil
5. A “palette”
6. Comfortable, messy clothes
7. A painter’s easel - if any
8. Canvas (or other painting surface)

About Mayra
Private lessons for all ages and currently accepting students!

30 yrs experience, International, Abstract, Contemporary artist based in San Diego CA. Available for eager students of all experience levels. "I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of abstract expressionistic-freestyle techniques.

I specialize in high quality acrylic-oil-metallic-chalk paints and heavy duty mediums. I typically use medium size to large flat brushes, metal mixing-knives, varnish, resin, silicone, floetrol.

I like to practice my choice of colors on an old canvas or simply on watercolor paper prior being used on a canvas or a wood panel.

My favorite tools to use as color reference are:
Pantone palettes, HGTV, Dwell, House & Homes Magazines, House Paint Color palettes from Home Depot
and imagery found online.

—BEGINNING PAINTERS LESSONS the student enjoys the benefit of a non-competitive environment.
Lessons are designed to teach the fundamentals of color mixing using watercolors, acrylic and oil paints.

—INTERMEDIATE PAINTERS LESSONS help the artist further develop their skills or work on specific areas of weakness.
Lessons are designed to teach the fundamentals of color mixing and variation using watercolors, acrylic and oil paints.

—ADVANCED PAINTERS LESSONS the artist benefits by exploring their own personal style.
Lessons are designed to teach the advanced fundamentals of color mixing and perspective using watercolors, acrylic and oil paints.

I look forward to painting with you!

I love Mayra. She taught me a lot more than I thought in just one class. I have a painting that I will hang on my wall. Never thought one class would do that. She has great personality and great skills.

Mayra was very helpful. She had a challenge with us because we we're weren't sure exactly what we wanted to learn. Mayra worked with us and demonstrated some new techniques and ideas based on where we already were as (very amateur) artists. She was helpful, very encouraging, and easy to work with. Thank you!

Laurel, MD

The most fabulous thing about being an artist is that boundaries regarding creativity are non-existent. The artist is always in a state of learning. Art is a progressive practice that takes time to develop.

Students will be introduced to the color wheel, basic materials needed, perspective, and the differences between realistic and impressionistic painting techniques. Materials are not included.

Acrylic painting lessons will be assessed based on the individual's current abilities and their goals.

About Sharron
My resume includes graduating from the Baltimore School for the Arts and continued studies at the Maryland Institute College of Art until I decided I didn’t want to be a “Starving Artist”. So, I graduated from the University of Baltimore with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Business Administration with a minor in Human Resources Management. My education also includes 27 graduate credits that were leading to a Master’s in Public Administration when I decided to discontinue that path. After twenty-five years in the public sector, I decided to revisit my passion for art in my spare time. As a youngster, I remember wanting to teach art in schools, but I did not want the restrictions that are present in the classrooms and more so today. All forms of art is a freeing practice that is practiced and developed over time. Art is very therapeutic.

I've taught and currently consult with former and current Baltimore School for the Arts visual arts students. For mor information, website at jfa-studios.com.

I have over 30 years experience with painting, sketching, and Color theory. My passion is to share my knowledge and understanding. I have been consistently teaching groups and a one on one basis for the past 3 years. I understand from an early age the impact art has. I would love to help you build a foundation of art and give you the tools to create when ever you desire. I specialize in beginners/intermediate and will customize each lesson to fit your need. I absolutely love what I would love to share it with you! Let’s get started!!

About Andrea
Her talent was discovered by her mentor, her grandfather, also an artist.She had an eye for color. She could draw anything as an exact match. Eventually this amazing talent and passion translated into paintings. This connection with colliding colors is what initially set her work apart in shows and competitions and has led to a growing following of galleries and collectors alike.

Andrea has been featured in many publications in and around the art community. She’s donated paintings to many organizations in Dallas, TX, Riverside, CA and in the Orange County area.

She has since independently illustrated and published her own children’s book. Andrea has decided to follow her heart, her passion, and her dreams by teaching others.

Painting is a great creative outlet for people to spend time relaxing and make something beautiful that brings you pride and joy. Anyone can paint! All it takes is time and a willingness to make mistakes and learn from them. I’ve been painting for 8 years and teaching for 1. I welcome all students who are interested in picking up painting as new hobby or returning after a long time away. We’ll build out your painting techniques and color theory so you can paint from real life or something abstract.

About David
I have a bachelors degree in printmaking and oil painting and spent some time in Florence, Italy studying painting and drawing by studying the High Renaissance masters. Currently I draw and paint in my spare time. I love teaching art as a way to connect with other artist and creative people who like talking about and creating art.

Through introducing or reviewing the fundamental principles in art and applying those to the lessons and exercises I assign for after class hours, you’ll see yourself improve week after week and gain more confidence in your artistic ability. I create a custom syllabus for you to review and work in things you’d like to try, certain mediums or subject matter to make it more appealing to you.

Making art should be fun and restorative! I’m very flexible in meeting your needs and speed at which you want to lea

Whether you are wanting to learn how to paint using acrylic paints because it is something you have always wanted to learn or you are looking to learn new techniques, I am here to guide you! Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. Not only will you be painting in no time, but you will be building a strong foundation of color theory, drawing techniques, hand sight coordination techniques, and more. I have been painting for over fifthteen years in a variety of scales including large murals to small canvases. I am as eager to share basic to advance techniques as you are to learn. Self expression and painting techniques are a tool nobody can take from you once you have learned and embraced the art of painting. I have a degree in Art Practice from UC Berkeley and have taught 2nd grade students and adults as well. Let's get painting!

About Belinda
I am a professional working artist and I am also a site coordinator for an Expanded Learning program here in Riverside. I obtained a degree in Art Practice from UC Berkeley where I specialized in multimedia installations that included large scale paintings, sculptures, and original music/audio. Due to the versatility in my own work from large to very small scale paintings I have acquired techniques and skills for every scale in between.
I am a strong believer in self expression and visual literacy which gets stronger with the formulation of concepts one builds through inspiration for each painting. I enjoy teaching and learning what my students' interests are and what motivates them. I can help you learn specific skills for abstract paintings to detailed portraits.
Through research I have also learned that individua
ls benefit greatly from creative freedom thus performing better in other academic subjects, learning healthy ways of expression, and mentality feel fulfilled through the therapeutic effects of painting.
If you are looking to work with someone who loves what they do, who is patient, motivational, and can teach you basic to advanced skills in painting, drawing, music, and Spanish send me a message and we start your learning journey!

The first lesson went very well with my daughter. Belinda was methodical in her teaching and approached the lesson with my daughter’s interest in mind. During the lesson, Belinda was able to actively engage my daughter the whole time, and more importantly, her teaching revived my daughter’s interest in drawing. She has already devised future plans to have my daughter practice sketching noses, eyes, and ears so that my daughter may draw the human face later with more realistic details.

Hi! Are you frustrated with muddy and poor color choices in your paintings, the inaccurate drawing of your subject, and overall mediocrity? I will help you overcome the fear and frustration of painting with some sound color theory and drawing methods. You can learn to apply colors that are bold and fresh. As artists who continually learn, I believe there is no wrong in exploring colors. When we continue to paint, we learn what didn't work and apply what does work. That is how we improve! The more we practice in small steps, the greater our success!

About Rita
I have been teaching and painting for a long, loooong time- since 1983, actually! I am also a professional mural artist and painter, and found that my painting improved many years after art school. I was frustrated back then and painting seemed so complicated! Is that you? I figured out, with my own research, the freedom and fun in painting. Your painting will improve week to week as we work together to apply nice color combinations, explore values, shapes, edges and so on. Are you interested in portraits, still lifes, landscapes, animals? Let's start with smaller painting sketches to learn the basics of color, shape and design. Then we will take it from there. You can and will succeed in producing paintings you desire!

I start with very basic shapes. a straight line, circle, square & triangle. By using these basic shapes I make drawing and painting simple.

About Darrel
I have been drawing and painting since a very young age. Recently, I decided to make an attempt to teach others. I keep things simple and work at the pace or talent of the student I'm working with.
I can teach students to be free and let the pen, pencil or paint brush flow or I can teach students how to be very precise and detailed. I'm able to teach students both basic and advanced techniques based of their experience and understanding of art.
I have a degree in Graphic Design, Web Design and Interior Design so I'm very familiar with the aspects design and creativity.
I use various techniques that produce results in a simple, fun and stress free way. It seems as if my students improve each and every time they pick up their pencil or brush. I look forward to meeting my next student and making them a better artist.

About Ollie
I love looking at art, reading about art and making art!

Art heals and the creation of it is I believe, empowering. My current practice is an expanding body of drawn and painted works that explore form through geometric, abstract, sculptural and musical languages.

From an early age, I grew up learning about art by watching my mother create. I loved the freedom and challenge that it provided me when I was young and over time have come to evolve and develop my own practice and language as an adult. In addition to art I am a Violist, Sound Designer and Composer and feel very strongly that the work I do visually has deep roots in sound and music.

Education:

Interlochen Arts Academy (Focus in Viola) 1995
Oberlin College (BFA Viola and Art) 2000

Ollie is an excellent, supportive, and friendly teacher! This is my first time using TakeLessons, and I enjoyed my time spent with Ollie. He was able to give me technical guidance, but also allowed me to play around. I appreciate that he was able to customize my lessons with my personal goals, and even suggest local art I may be interested in. I booked a 1 hour session, and the time flew by! He also allows you to use his brushes and paints the first session, and then gives recommendations for paints/brushes based on your skill level and budget. Looking forward to booking my next lesson. Highly recommend.
