Private Drawing Teacher

I am a classically trained artist and I teach traditional methods of representational drawing. I’ve taught at several local ateliers as well as internationally through the State Department’s Art In The Embassies program. I can help you learn about perspective, line, volume, and composition in an a way that is easy to understand. My teaching style is rich with experience and information but also very low key and unintimidating. Also— I’m really fun! Come draw with me!

I know noting about drawing and just after the first lesson I feel like I have some some sense of how to look at objects and try to draw them
Karen
Eileen is an amazing tutor and she had been very professional and thoughtful even before the course was conducted by discussing the right material to use during the class. Her presentation is very detailed and easy to follow, she is very patient as well which made us very comfortable during the session. Definitely recommend!

Excellent lesson. Very clear and helpful.

We are all artists-in-progress because, no matter how good we are, we can always get better!

I love art and I love teaching art! I am a graduate of The Art Institute and an artist and animator that creates in pencil, charcoal, pastel, watercolor, and digital mediums.

I recommend that classes are *at least* 1.5 hours (and I really recommend 2 hours!) because that's what's needed to critique homework assignments, warmup, and do the work for the class, and not be rushed.

Everyone can draw. And anyone can draw better. The first step is easy—we just get you making the right connections between your eyes, hands, and mind. Then comes wiring your brain and muscles through active learning and meaningful practice over the long term. As an instructor, I will give you exercises and projects that turn on the light bulbs. The feedback I will give you is two-fold: 1) I respond to your work as a viewer, so that you can learn to see your own work more objectively; 2) I relate to your art making as a fellow learner and share the ways that I have learned. Developing your craft is a lifelong pursuit that sees you continuously growing as an artist. I have found that my beginning students, without exception, get off to a great start on this journey and intermediate students never fail to rapidly evolve. Whether new to drawing or seasoned, my students always inspire and motivate me with their creativity. Sign up and you'll be drawing and seeing things in new ways from ...

Her dedication & professionalism in handling a class is beyond par. She has inspired my daughter to pursue art. I would recommend Maggie to every parent who is looking for an art instructor"

"Jessica is simply outstanding!!! She got right to the heart of what my children needed to work on to improve their drawing, and she was able to work with a range of abilities, attention spans, etc. Within minutes she was able to draw out the tentative artist in each of her three young students (ages 9-11), and you could see the difference in confidence in just one lesson!! She is smart, fun, flexible--you really could not find a better instructor!!!"

"My son is a beginner in drawing and is a bit apprehensive about his drawing skills. I really appreciated and liked Margarita's approach, setting music to create a relaxing atmosphere for drawing, explaining the steps, and the foundation for sketching. I think we approached drawing wrongly and after the lesson I changed our way. We play music now (which he likes) and he is drawing more often and is more relaxed."
