My lessons are taught in the classical tradition, focusing on realism and aesthetics. Students are provided with the practical tools to depict light, form, space, and materiality, as well as with with the conceptual tools to compose compelling artworks that express their personal vision. I tailor my lessons to individual students’ level, from fundamentals to advanced techniques. Through working on their pieces, students learn to master shapes, values, edges, media handling and color-mixing. Advanced students focus on practical application of color theory and on composition design.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! Ken is extremely talented in perceiving every student’s individual needs. When he gives feedback, it is not formulaic but actually tailored to the work I have done and the improvements I have made. This means that with each exercise completed, I am still learning new things about myself and my drawing instead of just repeating a technique brainlessly. These drawing classes have left a lasting mark on my art practice!

Brendan is a lovely instructor. He provides a very casual experience but without skipping on the technical know how.

I was a more advanced student of his, so at times it felt like more a a collaboration, but i was still able to learn from him.

"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!"

My daughter has started recurring lessons with this teacher.

"Mr. Ohashi is an amazing teacher of art. Having studied at one of the most prestigious art schools in Japan, he achieved a high level of technique and philosophy in the basics of creating art. Moreover, his success at teaching children in the US comes from his natural ability to break down complex ideas into easily understandable ones. A kind man and a joy to learn from, I highly recommend Mr. Ohashi if you want to learn any aspect of painting."

"My regular art classes were canceled due to COVID-19, but a friend knew someone who was taking some some private classes online with Carolyn and I decided to try it out. Now that I have, I think it's much better than being a single face among many! I'm improving so much with the one-on-one feedback and suggestions that I'm getting and Carolyn is such a kind, funny, and personable woman that I don't feel intimidated at all, even though my skills aren't where I'd like them to be. She's also extremely flexible with scheduling - with the shelter-in-place orders and with kids in the house 24/7, I can't always meet at the same time every session, but she lets me choose what works best for me which is another thing I don't get with regular classes. I'll definitely continue taking classes with her even after life returns to normal. Thanks Carolyn!"
