Become the artist you always wanted to be! Whether you are an aspiring artist, a total beginner, a teen building a competitive portfolio, or someone who's always wanted to learn to paint, I will help you develop your technical skills and find your voice as an artist! In our lessons, you will paint from life, exploring composition, concept, and mood through creative assignments. You will train your eye as you paint still lifes, landscapes, portraits, figures, abstractions, and beyond! I will show you examples of historical and contemporary painting as we practice a range of techniques. You will gain confidence through practice and experimentation as you work towards developing your own style as an artist! And most importantly, you’ll have fun! I can’t wait to work with you! *Due to Covid-19 I am temporarily not offering at-home travel lessons. All lessons will be online only until further notice.

Kiersten's fine art lessons focus on two central ideas: 1. Helping students understand and refine excellent technique, and 2.Cultivating, encouraging, and polishing each student's individual style. Kiersten incorporates concepts and exercises based on the atelier, a classical French program that teaches practical, time-tested methods used by master artists throughout history. Lessons usually follow a specific schedule, one that Kiersten has adjusted and perfected through the years. Each class begins with an introduction, followed by an exercise or art game that helps students to warm up and focus on practicing a skill without the pressure of learning while trying to create a finished piece. Next, Kiersten gives a lecture-usually with a slideshow of examples- and/or does a demonstration for the students(s). After this, students work on an assigned project, which is often taught in a step-by-step manner, and finally, students are given time to work on an individually chosen piece under instruction. Kiersten emphasizes spiral learning, learning through repetition, moving forward at a sustainable pace, challenging students to reach full potential, and teaching students the little-known, highly effective methods of the masters. She is also very passionate about tailoring lessons to best fit each student's unique learning style, needs, and interests.
