I learned about the composition of various paints, how to paint with water plus color and how to mix paints. In previous classes, I was not taught this Megan explains clearly. She will have you paint along with her to create a picture that demonstrates each lesson. For a virtual lesson, it was done well

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.

This involves Color theory, canvas preparations (wood, Canvas and other substrate choices), Brush selections, Mediums and thinning, Paint storage and reusing. We will work on transferring ideas from still life or sketch to canvas. We will cover brush stroke effects, blending, highlighting and work processes for an efficient and most importantly fun workflow.

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 ...

"I made a last minute lesson with Megan as I panicked about a university project that I was in no way prepared for. She is a calming and professional energy that guides you along the first few movements. At the end of the class she summed up what the next steps would be, making sure to set me up for success. I will definitely be signing up again!"

"Megan is fantastic! I have an art and design background but never studied painting itself. I came to her with two example artists whose styles I love and wanted to work towards. We did weekly classes for a few months - she was able to take me through the basics quickly, progressing more and more into advanced techniques needed to emulate specific effects as we deciphered these artists' works and their processes. She's an active listener, is always prepared, and adapts immediately to your needs as an artist and where you want to go. I'm taking time now to churn out some works and will absolutely be back for further lessons and critiques. "
