I am a classically trained artist who works primarily in oil.
My main genre is portraiture and I have taught life drawing and portrait painting in both the UK and USA.
Would be delighted to share many years of experience and teach from foundations of painting and drawing to more complex subjects like colour theory and composition.
My studio is located in downtown Santa Barbara but I am happy to travel and teach at your home as well as teach painting landscapes outdoors.

I like to take pride in making my students feel secure and knowing and seeing the improvement they make within each session. I will be handing out a materials list prior to our lessons. Most students see a huge leap in drawing within the the first lesson! Class starts out usually with me giving a 1 hour demonstration on what I expect them to do as I cover and explain my entire process and thought and calculations that goes into drawing and painting. For the rest of the class I will be besides the student as they work giving them one on one pointers and as much help and explanation as they need in order to improve. Students start out with learning how to look and draw what they observe accurately by first working on simple geometric shapes such as spheres, cubes. We then will move on to Cast studies and after a few months of studying we will start on figures and portraits.

I had a huge coincidence by having a lesson with Kai in the Bay Area. He and I have the same point of view about learning drawing that helps me to understand his tips and instructions. It is a true pleasure to be his student, I was feeling like I’m detective who’s seeking for tips and clues and try to transfer all of that onto the paper. Also he is really good by explaining how to see simple shapes and figures in every object, how to extend an imaginary line and keep angles which did and will help me to draw more consciously. Highly recommend him anyone who wants to improve its drawing and painting skill.

Kai is the best art teacher I ever had, he is genuine and puts his heart and soul into making sure you learn everything there is to know to be a successful artist.
Emily
Kai is an excellent instructor and has left a tramendious mark on me as both a student and an artist. Kai may be young, but he has knowledge beyond his years through skill and ambitiously being self taught he has been commended on nationally. Kai in the fall attended FACE and was recently awarded a certificate of excellence from The Portrait Society of America. I very grateful to have worked with him and been walked through his very informative and beautiful demos. Crique from Kai is wonderful and facilitates vast and constructive improvement in skill level. Would highly recommend Kai!

Online Oil Painting Teacher

Educated in Europe, I was always inspired by my teachers and travels to continue honing my artistic skills. With practice, anybody can develop their own style, and I believe it's my duty to pass on the knowledge that was instilled in me as a young artist.

Expression of one's soul in art may be sometimes stronger than words, something that psychologists have proven for years.

"Sip and paint" classes are available for groups.

About Isabela

Before reading about me, I'd like to share up front the honor that my newest student, R., has brought to me by choosing to learn Romanian. Nothing special so far except that he is 100 years old!!!! Yes, you read that correctly: a century old. He is the outmost inspiring person in my life by teachin

Online Oil Painting Teacher

My expertise is helping students develop a deeper relationship with painting and drawing while encouraging a dialog with the history of art and contemporary art practices.

Over the past ten years, I have taught a variety of painting and drawing courses. Having taught Painting and Color at University of Illinois at Chicago for a year during my graduate studies, I honed my skills as an educator. Teaching at Massachusetts College of Art Summer Programs between my BFA and MFA gave me the experience and skills to develop my teaching skills. My class is challenging and engaging for all students.

"I can't recommend lessons with Tori highly enough!

I've been obsessed with oil painting, and every kind of 2D visual art, for as long as I can remember, but I never really believed in myself to do it until I worked with Tori.

My drawing, painting, and even my 3D work progressed more, and more quickly, working with Tori than they had in years

Thank you Tori!!!!"
