Quick view profile

Using the classic European Atelier Style of teaching, I start all students with basic drawing, tone and color theory before embarking on either water color or oil painting. This is to ensure that the students have a solid foundation upon which to apply color to achieve the desire d effects. No amount of pretty color will make up for a poorly constructed work. Students learn to create dimensional illusions by understanding the principles of perspective, light and dark and various techniques.

About Patricia

As a child I watched from the doorway as my older sister took her piano lessons. From that experience I taught myself to play the piano. My formal training came in college where I received my BA in Applied Music in piano and voice. I studied classical music and opera from a visiting professor from

i recently came out of an audition and I sang my musical pieces better than I've ever done them before! The auditioner sat me down at the end and said he loves my voice. He said, based on how much he liked my pieces and how well I did that he would like to extend an early invitation for callbacks for the program! I really have Patricia to thank for that. She has helped me improve my voice by leaps and bounds in the time that i have been working with her and its amazing to get such immediate and rewarding results. I CAN NOT THANK PATRICIA ENOUGH! SHE COULD NOT HAVE PREPARED ME ANY BETTER AND IM SO GRATEFUL THAT I GET TO WORK WITH HER!!

-Painting realistic skin tones, composition,using a grisaille and verdaccio, glazing, methods and materials of the Old Masters, achieving a likeness in portraiture, accurate color mixing and matching, the use and preparation of painting mediums, translating what you see or envision onto the canvas successfully and much more.

It does not matter whether you are a small kid, a teenager or an adult, anyone can start painting at any age. You don't need inborn talent, you just need enthusiasm to learn.

Gesture, Expression and Experiment are my tools. I combination with an education in materials and the willingness to keep playing we end up confidently creating image. It is impossible to get anything done in an hour so try to find a way to book a longer time. Materials are somewhat included as I always have things but do contribute with art supplies, paper, found things. It's not necessary to spend a lot of money at the art supply store, just keep your eyes open at garage sales, etc and your store of materials will accumulate.

As an experienced teacher I have worked with all ages and in various settings. I am excited to get to know you and help you become the best version of you. I believe in you and believe you can and you will.

Want kind of artist you desire to me is of the highest priority to me. I am interested in seeing you develop the skill set and style you desire. If you desire to paint realism, then I will help you to develop those skills, if you it is impressionism, abstract, etc, let's develop those skills.

Additionally, what kind of voice do you want? What message do you want to release? This is something I would love to help develop with you.

I taught elementary art for several years, have taught adult classes for a couple of years and have helped to develop college students skill sets. I am positive, joyful and will celebrate you.

"My 6 year old daughter really enjoyed her online drawing lesson with Jessica. The lesson was well-structured and thought through. The materials Jessica picked were diverse and informative. I was amazed how Jessica made the online lesson seem as if she was right here in our house. I asked my daughter how many more lessons should I set up for her and she answered: many, many more! I strongly recommend Jessica to any student learning graphite drawing!"
