Private Painting Teacher

I have been a professional oil painter for 36 years and have taught oil and acrylic painting classes fro over a decade. I teach a casual, fun but serious style class. My goal is to teach the basics of creating a simple strong painting in a semi realistic style. However, my goal is to allow the student to develop their own individual style. Understanding the creative process is also key to making good art.

About Dan

My name is Dan. The only thing that I love more than painting is teaching students how to paint. I call my teaching method, "serious play". In other words, I want the students to learn something of value during each class, but also to enjoy the creative process that is key to making a successful p

GOOD!

Keep the brushes wet, make every stroke count! Very patient - you’ve just got to do it. Been invaluable in guiding the composition - he can’t hold the brush for you! For a “left brained” person like myself I need to get the “slap”!😄

About Maggie

I have been teaching violin for several years. Due to COVID, I switched to Zoom lessons this year, and it has been surprisingly awesome! Anything I teach in person translates to Zoom, and this makes learning the violin more accessible than ever. I teach using the Suzuki Method and See Saw exerci

Maggie gave me violin lessons way back when I was in high school, and when I decided to pick up my violin again as an adult, Maggie was the first person I thought of to call. I don't know where I would be as a student without Maggie's patient, consistent, and thoughtful teaching style. I have ADHD and carry a lot of insecurities from childhood about my ability to stick with an instrument, and Maggie meets me where I am every single time. Maggie listens to my goals with the instrument and tailors lesson plans and teaching styles to my specific needs.

10/10 would lesson again -- especially for students that are daunted by the process of learning an instrument or who will benefit from a compassionate, trauma-informed educator who has experience working with neurodivergent students.

Maggie is an excellent teacher! Super patient and great at breaking things down into parts that are easy to pick up and remember. I'm often a very frustrated learner, but Maggie has been amazing about encouraging at the exact moment it's needed (often before I even fully realise I need it!). Starting to learn violin as an adult was daunting, but something I had wanted to do since I was young, but it hasn't been the impossible task I thought it would be -- and that's definitely due to having engaging instruction that makes learning both challenging and fun!

Brendan is a lovely instructor. He provides a very casual experience but without skipping on the technical know how.

I was a more advanced student of his, so at times it felt like more a a collaboration, but i was still able to learn from him.

Such a great teacher! Brendan knows his stuff and his artwork is awesome. I learned so much from being his student.
Ryan

"Took my daughter to Mrs Deepali for our first class in Painting and Drawing, with curiosity to see how she'd teach a 9 year old. Was baffled to see teh results.

My daughter has started recurring lessons with this teacher.

I like her patience, and her result oriented skills."

"I haven't picked up art supplies since high school and Eileen was such a delight and was so supportive of my pitifully lapsed skills. Her studio is everything you imagine a Brooklyn artists studio would be. Would like a little Eileen sitting on my shoulder guiding me through life, like she did through my painting lesson. 10/10 will take lessons again."

"Roya is Amazing!!!! The first time I went to Roya, she asked me what exactly I wanted to learn, and really tailored my lessons to encompass all my interests and things that were important to me. She is patient, sweet, and THE BEST teacher I have ever had (that's a lot coming from an art major).

I have changed many private teachers in the last few years, and ever since I found Roya, I couldn't imagine having anyone else teach me. She is truly a golden treasure.

I have seen her teach to people of all levels, and she has been incredible with every single one of them. No matter your level, she will teach you what you want to learn."
