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.

I have been teaching professionally for five years with both small children and adults in many different platforms. My students can expect to develop skills of sketching in paint, rendering objects realistically, color theory, color mixing, texturing and blending, and building contrast. I work with you, where you're at, and develop my lesson plans custom to your individual needs. My students and I always have a blast and make the learning experience fun.

About Sondra
Hello future student :) My name is Sondra and I would love to help you achieve your painting goals. I have a wide range of skills, from abstraction to realism and many hues in between. I received my Bachelor's in Fine Arts from The Oregon College of Art and Craft, a school that gave me background in modern, conceptual art. I also learned and revered techniques from the old Masters, such as Rembrandt, who have a classic, timeless perspective on painting. I've heard it said that it takes 10,000 hours to become a pro, which is why I give my students a painting assignment from our very first lesson. I will get you started wherever you are in your level of experience. I'll help you learn to paint what you're looking at as well as develop your own sense of style when painting expressively. I have a great eye for color and mixing and my students
have felt this was a particular advantage of learning from me. I'd love to meet you and help you on your painting journey. So sign up with me today!

Columbus, OH

View Full Profile

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.

Moe is a good instructor, he has a lot of experience with teaching basics and intermediate topics in the fine arts. Not only is he familiar with traditional painting and techniques, but his practice itself is very innovative in inspiring you how to harness your own skills and seeing artmaking in your own way.

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.

Why not have your yo
ungsters sit for an actual tutoring session and learn something while being entertained? I like to incorporate age-appropriate art (drawing) or activities in any of my academic sessions to keep my students engaged and entertained.

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.

About Zoey

My goal is to bring out the best in you, wherever your interest may be.
