Megan was engaging, genuine, and had an extremely well-prepared lesson for us to start with. I felt like I gained a lot of important perspective about art, in both a technical sense and regarding the mentality of creating art. Great teacher. Looking forward to another lesson.

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. For mor information, web

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 learn.

The third lesson was pretty helpful. His approach towards drawing is different than what I am used to, but also very beneficial.

David did a good job breaking down how to draw a candle using the grid method. The concept he taught me is really easy to apply and helped me complete my first assignment. He is a good instructor.

Let's Create! Private lessons are an opportunity to tailor your experience to meet your individual artistic goals. Let's talk and determine how to make our time together the most valuable step along you, or your child's, artistic path. 6 years of art school, a Fine Arts masters degree, and a lively art practice have provided the tools to help me help you. We will learn formal techniques in an informal way. We will develop your skills and be sure to learn the "rules" before we break them. Join me and get your hands dirty!

About Gwynessa

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.

Experienced teacher of 10 years, specializing in the beginner-intermediate art student! All ages welcome. Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. Not only will you be creating in no time, but you will be building a strong foundation of basic art and design techniques, and more. Let's get started!

About Angelia
“Art is my breath, my passion, within it you see me.” I have always enjoyed art as a venue for my ideas and dreams. I want to share my passion for art with others who enjoy the beauty of interpretation.

My art and creation is generally created through paintings as I enjoy the expression through oil and acrylic paints used to express my emotions. I also enjoy sketching with pencil and charcoal. I trained in Paris with the best professors, completed my Masters of Fine Arts, shown my work in galleries around the world and won awards that distinguish my work.

I currently teach Art, Graphics, Humanities and Visual Arts at Lees-McRae College and online. I feel painting is a magical experience that I have enjoyed since childhood. Looking at the world through an artist eyes gives one the ability to take from it what you see and create what
you feel. My intention is to create artwork that will allow the viewer to feel the world around them, see the expression of the artist and develop an emotion for what one is viewing.

I will show you how to tap into that emotion, providing you with the techniques for creation and enhancing your ideas on your way of expression.

I feel that art evokes emotion and expression; within it, you will see the artist.
For a great time learning the basics while expressing yourself, contact me to help you tap into your inner creativity!
