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.

I have hosted over 150 painting events teaching couples in homes for date night, and crowds of 25-50 people. I believe that everyone has an inner artist. My fun classes will allow you to explore that as we paint step by step simply beautiful works of art, beginner style. You will tap into that childlike, vulnerable, creative side of yourself. You will only need a canvas and a favorite brush. I will supply all paints, palettes and instruction.

About Gabrielle
Meet Gabrielle:

Gabrielle has coached individuals, choirs, and camps locally and internationally to perfect their tone and sing with skill and freedom. Aside from teaching, she also is a traveling performer, and a host of creative music production workshops in elementary schools and other family friendly venues.

Musical History:

As a professional singer formerly signed to Sony Records and Cherrylane Publishing she has a few songwriting credits in movies, television, albums and video games. After starring in a reality show, releasing an album, touring with some of music's biggest names, walking the red carpet, and performing at the Billboard awards, she returned home to really find her sound after her music group disbanded.

"It has been such a journey. Now that I've found my voice, I want to help others discover theirs too.
It's so important to me. As a striving musician, successes and failures have only deepened my passion and taught me the importance of knowing myself as an artist. I love helping others believe in themselves and release what's truly inside them."

She is very diverse and able to do all kinds of genres. She is also a producer and is passionate about music arrangement, song writing and recording. She currently runs RunSong Studios.

What to Expect as a Student:

* Train to hear the note, tune tone, sing on key 

* Learn to create and control runs and ad libs

* Find the perfect harmonies automatically 

* Strengthen diaphragm and learn to breathe correctly 

* Learn to sing with emotion and let the true individual shine through

* Push the limits with the right exercises and free the voice to truly soar 

* Be empowered and encouraged as a singer and a raw artist, whether this is a hobby or an epic dream

I recommend children's session be no shorter than an hour. 30 minutes goes by very quickly and children's classes are more about building confidence as well as skill which takes a bit longer.

Gabrielle has a deep passion for music and for teaching people how to excel in their musical gift. She also has an excellent ability to compose music and helped me with composing a melody for a song I had written. Gabrielle used to be apart of a musical group where many of her vocal skills and talents were showcased. Because of her experience in the musical industry, my personal experience that I had with her, and her passion, I have no doubt that Gabrielle is the perfect instructor for anyone needing vocal training.

Gwynn Oak, MD

I am a graduate of the Baltimore School for the Arts (BSA) majoring in visual artists and continued my studies at the Maryland Institute College of Art. In my spare time, I've taught for the last 15 years. I've tutored actual BSA students. I love painting. I love teaching art. It is an expression of an individual's personal journey.

The most fabulous thing about being an artist is that boundaries regarding creativity are non-existent. The artist is always in a state of learning. Art is a progressive practice that takes time to develop.

Students will be introduced to the color wheel, basic materials needed, perspective, and the differences between realistic and impressionistic painting techniques. Materials are not included.

Acrylic painting lessons will be assessed based on the individual's current abilities and their goals.

About Sharron
My resume includes graduating from the Baltimore School for the Arts and continued studies at the Maryland Institute College of Art until I decided I didn’t want to be a “Starving Artist”. So, I graduated from the University of Baltimore with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Business Administration with a minor in Human Resources Management. My education also includes 27 graduate credits that were leading to a Master’s in Public Administration when I decided to discontinue that path. After twenty-five years in the public sector, I decided to revisit my passion for art in my spare time. As a youngster, I remember wanting to teach art in schools, but I did not want the restrictions that are present in the classrooms and more so today. All forms of art is a freeing practice that is practiced and developed over time.

Sharron was an awesome instructor!!! She was very professional. She showed up early to set up for my daughter's paint and sip party. Sharron gave very detailed descriptions to help guide the amateur artists. Everyone enjoyed the personal feedback that was given. Sharron made our party a huge success. I would definitely recommend her services.

I have experience teaching painting (and intro to art, art history and art appreciation) to 7-12 graders, adults of all ages at the college level, as well as 3-5 year olds. Have a MFA and BFA from the top art schools in the subject area, with high honors. I teach acrylic, oil, water colors as well as digital (Painter, Photoshop, etc; 20 years using Photoshop alone! As well as 10+ years teaching art at the college level). Though I much prefer to teach painting in person as a plastic medium, I’m willing to be your online Bob Ross :-) In an ideal world this would envolve a painting salon outdoors in good weather, some homework and field trips.

30 plus years as an artist and art instructor/ art therapist. I meet each student where they are at; emphasizing creative expression while at the same time fostering skills that support that. I can instruct in watercolors, acrylics, as well as oil painting and pastels.

About Pamela
I am very experienced working with children and teens. I have been a credentialed art teacher/ therapist for many years. I believe that making art is a joyful experience and can open up creative self expression. Plus, its fun! I love sketching, doodling, painting, and mixed media.

I have a private practice as an art therapist (specializing in children with special needs and autism), but I can put on my instructor hat and focus on skill building in drawing, painting and mixed media.

I love to help students create their own unique style and I do not judge or critique harshly, but gently show students the steps involved.

Teaching how to see is how you will learn to draw, paint make your painting come alive. We work from big shapes to small and before you know it an image appears. If you can take directions and I can see your progress in order to cater specifically to you together we can accomplish great things.

About Diana
Diana has been a professional book illustrator, muralist, portrait artist, art teacher since 1988.

She has her Masters of Fine Art from New York Academy Of Art.

Although painting is her passion teaching is her desire because to connect with people is why she paints. Without one the other is dull.

There is no beauty in art until is enjoyed no meaning until we open up our feelings for ourselves and for our friends.

I teach the students how to draw and paint anything they see or imagine. The classes are no more than 5 students a class and each student gets individual attention. I teach all ages and all skill levels, form age 2 to 92 years old and from beginners to advanced/professional. I teach oil, acrylic and watercolor painting.
The students are brought up in skill level to the point that they feel confident they can paint at the level they want to and can even make a career out of it!

About Laurie
I have taught for over 20 years and worked with over 400 students. I am a mom, myself, and really take care of my students and get to know their families so that they feel safe and secure in taking lessons with me.
