I took two classes with Julie, business and digital photography. Both were very well prepared, planned out and taught. For each of the classes Julie prepared her own text books that outlined the curriculum and were very helpful for later reviews. In class she used slides with more information and examples of work, which were very helpful especially in the photography class. With her background in business and photography, we benefitted from her first hand experiences and recommendations regarding best photography equipment to invest in. Classes were not only informative but also fun and hands on. Her passion for photography is highly contagious ! I started from being intimidated by my camera but ended up enjoying and recognising the fun behind taking photos. I highly recommend Julie and hope to continue my own photography journey with her as my teacher.
Judith Walsh
Julie is quite organized and presents the subject matter in a detailed but understandable manner. I am very pleased with our first session.
Shelby M.
Julie is amazing! Very good with a beginner photographer. She teaches just like the teacher she is! So patient so knowledgeable but very structured. She does not go into teaching me just winging it. I look forward to class every week!

Do you want to draw like Rembrandt? Do you want to be the next Van Gogh? Or maybe you want to be able to draw simple subject matter, like your family dog! Well, these are the online classes for you! My name is Timothy and I have been drawing for 30 years (pencil, pen & ink, colored pencil, and oil pastel). I enjoy sharing my art experience with others, no matter what age, no matter where you are beginning. I can begin with the simplest subject matter in drawing, like cartoons, and advance you into more advanced subject matter such as portraiture and drawing from life. My training is a balance of self taught instruction and my art teacher, John Gordon of newmasters.com, the designer of the Green Bay Packers logo!
What are you waiting for? Now is the time to cultivate your inner artist and use your artistic talents like never before. Contact me and let’s get the ball rolling.

About Timothy

I am a fun-loving art teacher who is looking for art students of all ages who want to learn, learn, learn! I enjoy sharing my experiences with you as I draw and paint, you can learn from my successes and my mistakes as an artist. To begin, I will ask you one thing: what is your goal and how far you

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 Daniel

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

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”!😄
