Abstract Painting uses a visual language of form, color and line to create a composition which may exist with a degree of independence from visual references in the world. Abstract art, non figurative art, nonobjective art, and nonrepresentational art are loosely related terms. They are similar, but perhaps not of identical meaning.

About Mayra
Private lessons for all ages and currently accepting students!

30 yrs Experienced, International/Contemporary artist based in San Diego CA. Available for eager students of all experience levels. "I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of abstract expressionistic/freestyle techniques.

I specialize in high quality acrylic-oil-metallic-chalk paints, and heavy duty mediums. I typically use medium size to large flat brushes, metal mixing-knives, varnish, resin, silicone and or floetrol.

I like to practice my choice of colors on an old canvas or simply on watercolor paper prior being used on a canvas or a wood panel or my choice.
My favorite tools to use as color reference are HGTV Magazines, Real Simple Magazines, Dwell Magazines, House & Homes Magazines, Color book palett
es from Home Depot and any Pantone materials I can find.

—BEGINNERS enjoy the benefit of a non-competitive environment. Lessons are designed to teach the fundamentals of watercolor, acrylic, oil painting without being lost in a group setting.

—For the INTERMEDIATE painters, these sessions help the artist further develop their skills or work on specific areas of weakness. Lessons are designed to teach the fundamentals of watercolor, acrylic, oil painting.

—The more ADVANCED artist benefits by exploring their own personal style. Finding your own artistic voice can be challenging in a group and sharing a new direction with other students can be overwhelming. Watercolor, acrylic, oil painting.

I look forward to painting with you!
Feel free to sign up for a private lesson with me today.

Sign up fee is per person, per hour.
Please note, party of 2 or more, please send me a message to make arrangements. ~Thank you.

I love Mayra. She taught me a lot more than I thought in just one class. I have a painting that I will hang on my wall. Never thought one class would do that. She has great personality and great skills.

Mayra was very helpful. She had a challenge with us because we we're weren't sure exactly what we wanted to learn. Mayra worked with us and demonstrated some new techniques and ideas based on where we already were as (very amateur) artists. She was helpful, very encouraging, and easy to work with. Thank you!

Acrylic is the perfect medium for a shorter time period to paint. The paint dries almost instantly yet with the techniques I teach your paint will stay wet for days and weeks. Great way to learn to paint and a medium you will switch to forever depending on the subject matter.

About Lynn
Lynn B. attended four of the very best art colleges in the country With over 40 years experience in both painting and teaching art, she is well equipped to teach both any style and medium and to absolute beginners through advanced students.

Ms. Buettner has studied at several of the most prestigious art schools in the Northeast including: Rhode Island School of Design, The New York Art Students' League, the Paier College of Art in Connecticut, and the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston. Her work has been shown in galleries throughout the United States and Canada, and is in collections worldwide. Summering on the East Coast on Martha's Vineyard Island, Ms. Buettner's work quickly became known and collected by local residents and returning island guests. Most originals were sold while still on her easel.

To keep up with demand, sh
e created a complete product line including collector's limited edition prints, her signature greeting card with collectible art magnet, art magnets, post cards, photo magnet frames, calendars, notebooks, folders and photo albums.

The publishing company that licensed her designs flew her to China to do an art signing at the Canton World Trade Show.

Enthusiastically sharing her knowledge, she has taught all levels of art to both beginners and adults for the past thirty years. She created and taught a very successful after school art program for kids for over ten years as well. After devoting the last twenty years to painting scenes ranging from realistic to impressionistic, Ms. Buettner is venturing out with her accomplished techniques and abilities, into the exciting and unusual world of intuitive expression. Letting go of conscious thoughts, an exciting, creative and sensual world emerges to be shared with the viewer. This work has been coined Neo Biomorphic.

Her work has been used on many different commercial projects including the Nash Bridges TV Show and the TV movie Diary of a Mad Housewife.

Starting a very successful after school art program for grades 1-6, she has extensive experience in all age groups bringing the student from beginning drawing to the most advanced painting techniques that took over 40 years to acquire.

Lynn was so helpful in aiding me to complete a project I have been wanting to complete. She went at my speed (sometimes slow, sometimes hasty) and helped me with techniques I had no idea about and others I just did not know how to do well. I was working on a portrait of a young girl in a dress and she helped me create the pleats in the dress and work on the girl's complextion and hair. As a hobby painter, I am very pleased with my final product which I am going to give as a gift with confidence!

Lessons would be individualized to focus on areas that need the most guidance.

I have been painting for several years and I have studied many techniques.

About Melissa
I have been teaching since 2006 on a variety of topics. I graduated with an BA from the University of Wisconsin. My degree is in History with and emphasis on East Asian history.

I've taught all age groups from age 2 up to retirees. My teaching experience includes one-on-one and group classes in a variety of settings. I've taught corporate classes, private lessons, small groups, and traditional classroom lessons.

We have a student-centric philosophy of learning. Lessons are generally relaxed and designed to work towards accomplishing student determined goals. While all students will study similar fundamentals regarding technique, theory, and performance, every lesson is as different as every person. Special focus on topics like music theory, self-accompaniment, composition, song writing, and home recording are available as well.


What are your personal goals? We'll tell you what you need to do to get there, and help you take the steps to achieve your aspirations.

Lessons with small children are more focused on just having fun while developing a good musical foundation, but we prefer for them to have as much personal ownership of their lesson as possible.

Melissa was the perfect teacher for my child. She's warm, engaged, patient -- and very skilled. I think my daughter continued with her piano instruction only because she enjoyed her classes so much! If we hadn't moved an hour away, we would still be going to Melissa. She's awesome! I highly recommend her.

Megan was both professional and kind - clearly knows the subject well. I thought the approach to discuss the pillars of the content was a great idea and I am looking forward to the next lesson.

I made a last minute lesson with Megan as I panicked about a university project that I was in no way prepared for. She is a calming and professional energy that guides you along the first few movements. At the end of the class she summed up what the next steps would be, making sure to set me up for success. I will definitely be signing up again!
