We will also learn about color mixing and start with learning the color wheel along with primary, secondary and complementary colors. We will then do a few exercises to better understand how to use these colors and how to make colors lighter and darker. Materials need for class: Acrylic or Mixed Media paint pad, Acrylic paints ( red, blue, yellow, white and black), paint brushes, cups for water, paper towels, paper plate or paint palette for mixing colors and popsicles sticks for mixing.

Whether or not you are new to painting or want to get back into it after many years away and just need some feedback and a new perspective I am here to help. I have been teaching painting for 20 years and I’ve worked with students of all ages, from young adults to retirees. I teach painting using the classical method of observation (meaning, based on what they see). You will also learn how do use color as it reflects the temperature of the light and shadows like the impressionists. I will show you a lot of different artists for inspiration and to teach you how to glean the best from history. I recommend working from direct observation at first (a still life rather than a photo of a still life). You can expect to learn a lot about color for me, about the structure of light and shadow and how it helps create realism but also compose a really great looking paintings. I adjust my approach to teaching as I get to know each student and what learning style connects best with them.

Had my first lesson and I've already learned so much! The lesson was informative and Sharon also gave me a clear idea of what to practice in the meantime. I am confident that my drawing skills will improve!
Julie
I had a great time and learned a lot painting with Sharon. This was my first painting lesson. She is patient, helpful and very passionate about watercolors. She is also very knowledgeable and answered all my questions.
Sharon will tailor your lesson to your goals. You do not need to be an artist to enjoy these lessons.
Jennie
Sharon was my introduction to watercolor painting! Her suggestions were very helpful. Her depth of knowledge and experience were stimulating and lead me to read and research artists and concepts. She was patient with this novice, and I look forward to more lessons.

As a teacher for 7 years one of my favorite things is bringing the arts into teaching. I've taught infants through adults, beginners and advanced, and the one secret I can absolutely tell you about learning, is if you are happy then you are going to learn a lot more! I'm excited to get to know you and make you smile!

Let me tell you a little about the Lessons I have to offer. I have specific curriculums for several categories such as Landscapes, Abstract, Still Life, and Portraits. One of my classes that is trending right now is "Flourish and Bloom" which a where we create an acrylic painting on canvas of a flower wreath with an inspirational word in the center. I've got pictures below if you'd like to take a look!

About Loren

I'm an artist, musician, and language aficionada. I have a Bachelor's Degree from the University of Georgia, graduating with honors as a Magna Cum Laude in Spanish and French Linguistics. I am fluent in both languages. One thing I love about teaching is bringing the arts into the process of learning

I've been creating art since a young age and have spent years practicing perfecting the craft. My specialty is portraits and figures and I'm proficient in knowing the exact proportions of the human face and body, although I am skilled in knowing the features of other subjects as well.(I can teach other mediums including but not limited to: pencil, charcoal, pastel, and ink)

Since going to school majoring in fine arts, I can accurately teach different techniques and styles that you may find suitable or desirable. Because of my numerous awards and experience, not only can I teach the technicalities of creating a piece of art, I can also help guide you to creating a piece of work that could look and feel as if it's professional enough to go into a gallery using the elements and principles of design.

Learning a new skill can be difficult, but I am confident in my ability to be able to teach at any level and make your masterpiece look the best it could possibly be! Remember: art is ...

"Sharon is the best art teacher I’ve ever had. She excels in explaining a concept verbally and then showing visual examples of it. With her positive and encouraging teaching style, Sharon guided me to better myself as a beginning artist. Her teaching technique is uncomplicated and easy to follow. When you take a class with her, not a single session goes by without learning something new. Without reservation, I would recommend taking an art class with Sharon."

"I had the crazy idea of gifting to the girl I like a painting of her favorite flower. She lives in Shanghai and I was flying to over from New York. The problem was that I did not know how to paint. Because I had been so busy with work, I waited until last week before my flight to take lessons. Guiseppe guided me on how to approach my project and how to mix colors. Could not have done it without his instruction. Thank you."
