Private Painting Teacher

Whatever your skill level, however fast or slow you want to go, I want to help you to become a better artist and enjoy it while you’re learning! What we cover in your lesson will be determined by your level of expertise. If you are just starting out with oils, we will discuss some important things to understand about the colors, mediums, how to set up your palette and some different ways of applying paint, etc. If you already have some experience with oil painting, we will pick up with whatever areas you would like to improve on. If you are interested in painting the human figure or portraits in particular, we can discuss some important ways to go about painting flesh tones. There are also some little known tips I want to tell you about that will be useful to artists of any skill level!

I will share with you any suggestions that I have for technique or different ways of approaching your painting that may help you with whatever areas you’re struggling with. We can focus on how to ...

Anthony is a patient, thoughtful instructor! I took private lessons with him quite some time ago, but still vividly remember the tips he gave me. He'd be a great fit for students of all ages and levels.
Maureen
Anthony is a competent artist and serious at his craft. His teaching skills reflect his knowledge and his passion for art.

Anthony G. is honestly the most AMAZING art teacher I have ever had! I didn't know what to expect from the private art lesson and was pleasantly surprised when Anthony was able to speak to what I am truly passionate about, which is nature. His positive energy, joy, and excitement for teaching is genuine and he goes out of his way to understand your artistic vision and goals, which really made me feel important and valued. Anthony G. is able to balance professionalism, humor, and quality standards for his students that creates a relaxed atmosphere and enhanced learning environment. He cares about each one of his students and is incredibly patient with them. He makes sure that you learn so much in a short amount of time, and ultimately succeed in achieving your artistic goals. After taking his class, I was able to more clearly define my voice, making me feel more confident about my ability to communicate through artistic expression. He is also a PHENOMENAL live event painter at weddings!

I'm so jazzed to take my next art class with Anthony Galati! I strongly encourage anyone to do the same!

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”!😄

"I've taken private lessons in the past, some were good, some not so good. I've always felt that other instructors followed a very generic blueprint during their private lessons. With Roya, I've never felt that way. The lessons are designed in a way that I felt as if I'm progressing as a artist. Do yourself a favor, and sign up. You will not regret it. :)"

"Our first "lesson" was more of a "get to know each other" and "painting goals" lesson in my office.

Renata has a fantastic life story and based on our mutual first interview and philosophy comparison I believe she will be an excellent teacher to help me reach my artistic goals!

I look forward to much further work and discussion with her!"

"We are happy to have found Kai on TakeLessons. Kai works with our high school junior on her portfoilio and submissions for art competitions. The weekly online lessons involve setting goals, conceptualizing, live demonstrations and live coaching. We were initially worried about the effectiveness of online lessons but it has worked out perfectly so far in the second month of lessons. Our daughter has already shown improvement in her technique, and an enthusiasm for the lessons and for the pieces she’s working on with Kai."

She is extremely knowledgeable about art and a gifted teacher. She also teaches cooking classes and is a talented photographer. I would highly recommend her to anyone who desires to improve his/her painting skills and enjoy it at the same time. Renata is delightful. A side note – Renata speaks 7 languages!
