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!

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!

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.
Mike
Such a great teacher! Brendan knows his stuff and his artwork is awesome. I learned so much from being his student.
Ryan
It's quite informative being taught Brendan. He teaches the nuances of painting without getting overly technical. His approach is keep it simple and fun. I highly recommend Brendan as an art instructor.

Do you feel you cannot create? And want to paint? Contact me and we can start from the basics...supplies, colors, subject, and technique. We would start small. In several lessons have one or many paintings done. One lesson might be a chance to ask questions about supplies you already own...as a gift...or sitting around for years. The student walks away with skills and feeling of confidence to proceed on ones own...well worth the effort. Sincerely, Janet

Want to learn to paint or draw your favorite scene or photo you took on your last vacation? Interested in learning how to creatively express your own artistic development through your favorite medium? I have been a practicing artist for 20+ years and I love seeing others progress with mediums they are personally interested in. Painting, drawing, photography and ceramic sculpture have been large focuses of my artistic career; coupling that with my love to educate others I'd enjoy the opportunity to talk to see if I could invest my time teaching you some of the skills and techniques I have learned from all around the world.

About Sheldon

I am an experienced artist that has traveled the world, learned from many teachers, observed, utilized tested techniques and have a mentality that I can always be learning. I studied art a little more than average in high school, but graduated with honors in college with several classes of studio l

What a pleasure it was having Sheldon come in and teach our youth! We planned a night of creativity for our youth at our church and Sheldon kindly volunteered and provided materials for our teens to have an awesome experience. He gave expert advise and technique but also embraced everyone creative side. Hope to have another night with Sheldon as our teacher. Super fun night!!
Bethann
Sheldon was highly recommended and I now see why! He came to our church’s youth night to teach us all about watercolor painting. He was patient, engaging, prepared, professional and so kind! We feel so blessed to have had him as a guest artist and look forward to having him back soon!

"I've been taking private lessons from David Lavis for six months to better my technique in portrait art. David is a great instructor who takes the time to ensure I've embraced the concepts and that I can demonstrate my understanding on the canvas. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone wanting to better their skills."

"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. :)"

"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."
