With 12+ years of experience, I have a long history of practicing visual art. Drawing and painting are some of my favorite practices, and I love helping others take what they see and express that through their own hands. Together we'll explore what it means to perceive and express through creative visual means!

I really enjoyed lessons with Emilie! She is well organized and has a clear lesson plan for each session, with follow up homework and exercises. I learned so much about technique and the "how to" of drawing. Everything she put together was appropriate for my level and included exercises that challenged me to improve. I could tell Emilie is well trained and skilled at drawing. She is also very nice and I felt relaxed and comfortable with her. Her studio is warm and inviting. Overall it was a great experience and I am looking forward to taking some additional lessons with Emilie!
Ava C.
So happy to have found Emilie! I work for a family with a four year old child who is extremely engaged in art and we wanted to find private lessons for her. Emilie has been extremely accommodating and very intentional in making sure we were ready for our first lesson. Will be scheduling more lessons and look forward to her being apart of my charges explorative learning!

I’ve been teaching for a year and welcome students of all levels! My lessons are all about training your eye and mastering the foundational elements of art so you can draw anything from life our you imagine. I bring lots of practical techniques and old school methods introduced in a modern way that takes into account the interest of my students and keeps the learning fresh and fun.

At all of my lessons I introduce the works of an established modern or classical artist that either exemplifies the lesson of the day or is someone whose work or life story I think my student might find interesting. We don’t just learn how to draw or paint but also learn how to talk about art and make it more a part of your everyday life.

While I'm a new/aspiring teacher, I hope I can create a fun environment where you feel challenged yet accomplished each drawing lesson. I want to know what you're most interested in so I can tailor your lessons to your interests and goals. I'm happy to start with the very basics or help students who already have some experience. I have extensive experience drawing the human figure, portraits, and animals in charcoal, graphite, and soft pastel.

"Probably the most helpful and qualified art teacher Ive had so far, Kai is a great teacher and I think i learned more in the few weeks i worked with him than i did in the months of courses at my college. He helped show me a side of art I was ignorant to. I think if you are really serious about art then Kai is the teacher for you. Hes also very friendly and an overall really cool guy!"
