Hi, I am Ray. Painting with me is fun and positive with constructive critique. I have worked with ages 9 to 25 year olds. I really enjoy helping someone find their style through painting. I work with each individual to hone their skills in their chosen medium.

I teach the importance of experimenting with techniques and style and color. It's important to create lots of work and not focus too long on one piece. You can always come back to a work, but do so later as you have improved with your skills and muscle memory of techniques.

Everyone is capable of painting. It is only a matter of practice and the right instruction.

About Ray

I am a professional painter and artist. I graduated from Abilene Christian University with a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Design as well earned my Master of Fine Arts from Michigan State University in Design. Painters can expect to improve week to week with my guidance. Every painter has a natural

Online Acrylic Painting Teacher

I have been teaching professionally for more than 10 years. I can teach a total beginner and I can guarantee the profound change in his skill level (regardless of his age), after 2 months of the attentive following of my instructions. I like to watch the progress of my student and this is what brings me the best satisfaction in my occupation.
I think that every human being is unique with his own unique way of thinking and perception of the common things. When teaching, I believe in dialogue, for this reason, I never record my lessons on video, except for the promotional needs. I like to meet new students, to understand their way of thinking and to invent the individual teaching approach or methodology for each one of them.

About Danil

I am an academically trained professional artist with the overall working experience of about 20 years and an impressive record of exhibitions (two of them are museum one-man shows) in the USA and abroad. I am teaching in three languages: ENGLISH, HEBREW and RUSSIAN, representational, realist,

Great, passionate teacher
Ira Polubesova
I was very lucky to take private lessons with Danil - after only a few of them I had a clear systematic approach to my drawing process. I very much appreciate analytical way of work in art, and that’s what Danil was doing greatly : he sharpens the tools while keeping your individuality. Highly recommended!

One of the best teachers I ever had!

She is a calming and professional energy that guides you along the first few movements. At the end of the class she summed up what the next steps would be, making sure to set me up for success. I will definitely be signing up again!"
