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!

From this lesson, students can expect to understand how to see as a painter does. This includes a thorough understanding of color theory, proper technique in the mixing of paints and its application, proper preparation of surfaces, and a comprehensive understanding of all materials that could be used. Students can expect to progress in their ability to use all of these to successfully communicate their vision. Lessons would include still life painting, landscape painting, painting from life/plein air, and painting from memory and introduction to abstract thought.

About Kavi

I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Communications Design from Pratt Institute. Although I have always strived to become a fine artist, I preferred to matriculate from the design school because of its focus on communicating ideas to the audience—a skill that he believes is essential to any artwor

Kavi has a depth of insight into color and emotion that is hard to find in an art teacher. He inspires you to find moments in between your daily life, hidden behind monotony, that you can only appreciate when you have relaxed your mind. He is the perfect guide for those who aspire to not only learn the basics, but to bring new life and freedom to painting and illustration.

Do you want to paint like Rembrandt? Do you want to be the next Van Gogh? Or maybe you want to be able to paint a portrait of your family dog! Well, these are the online classes for you! My name is Timothy and I have been oil painting for 25 years. I enjoy sharing my art experience with others, no matter what age, no matter where you are beginning. I can begin with the simplest subject matter in painting, and advance you into more advanced subject matter such as portraiture and painting from life. My training is a balance of self taught instruction and my art teacher, John Gordon, the designer of the Green Bay Packers logo!

I teach the fundamental basis for all representational painting. From still life to portraits and the figure leading up to advanced genre or multi-figure pictures. I have been drawing and painting my whole life and love to teach drawing and painting to anyone who wants to learn. Visual communication skills are a foundation for many forms of problem solving skills. These skills all lead to a keen sense of awareness of ones self and environment.

About Preston

I have hundreds of hours teaching experience in many subjects spaning from sports chess and the arts. I have won numerous awards for my ability to communicate the detailed aspects of complicated intricate subject matter. I have been verified to teach all ages and have numerous background checks est

Preston is a very nice coach. I was a beginner with zero experience before. After five lessons, I gained solid basic skills and feel more comfortable to rally. I feel growing by leaps and bounces.

He is very sharp about identifying the problem and then training accordingly. He is also kind and very patient to guide

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 was a beginner and really excited to learn as much as I could about painting. Eileen started me with the very basics of setting up a palette, then we moved on to monochrome paintings, and then paintings with a full palette. She taught me the process of making a painting step by step was what I really wanted to learn. Her teaching style was a fit for me because she is both patient and skillful. She helped to bring out the artist in me. I am so grateful for what I learned and have taken that knowledge and continue to grow as an artist in my spare time. What also love is that Eileen has made herself available right me and I plan to take more lessons with her soon!"
