Want to learn to paint or draw your favorite scene or photo you took on your last vacation? Interested in learning how to creatively express your own artistic development through your favorite medium? I have been a practicing artist for 20+ years and I love seeing others progress with mediums they are personally interested in. Painting, drawing, photography and ceramic sculpture have been large focuses of my artistic career; coupling that with my love to educate others I'd enjoy the opportunity to talk to see if I could invest my time teaching you some of the skills and techniques I have learned from all around the world.

About Sheldon

I am an experienced artist that has traveled the world, learned from many teachers, observed, utilized tested techniques and have a mentality that I can always be learning. I studied art a little more than average in high school, but graduated with honors in college with several classes of studio l

What a pleasure it was having Sheldon come in and teach our youth! We planned a night of creativity for our youth at our church and Sheldon kindly volunteered and provided materials for our teens to have an awesome experience. He gave expert advise and technique but also embraced everyone creative side. Hope to have another night with Sheldon as our teacher. Super fun night!!

In this class student will gain experience and skills that improve current abilities. The class will consist of still life painting and moving from that to figurative. We will learn to use lighting to properly capture our subject to improve composition. The class will be a step by step approach taking time to go at your own pace. We will discuss color theory and perform useful techniques to develop subtle values and temperatures. The goal is to make you better and give you tools to keep improving.

Whether or not you are new to painting or want to get back into it after many years away and just need some feedback and a new perspective I am here to help. I have been teaching painting for 20 years and I’ve worked with students of all ages, from young adults to retirees. I teach painting using the classical method of observation (meaning, based on what they see). You will also learn how do use color as it reflects the temperature of the light and shadows like the impressionists. I will show you a lot of different artists for inspiration and to teach you how to glean the best from history. I recommend working from direct observation at first (a still life rather than a photo of a still-life).

With oil paint, there are some underpainting techniques to explore to get a really solid layout and to establish the values. This is an advantage to oil because it is easier to work out the values before adding color. Next, over the top, you can do a very painterly technique and have

My lesson with Sharon was a fantastic start. I'm not entirely new to art but I am fairly new to acrylic painting. She tailored our first lesson to start me with a solid foundation. Very excited to set up my next lesson!

Cristina
Sharon is the best art teacher I’ve ever had. She excels in explaining a concept verbally and then showing visual examples of it. With her positive and encouraging teaching style, Sharon guided me to better myself as a beginning artist. Her teaching technique is uncomplicated and easy to follow. When you take a class with her, not a single session goes by without learning something new. Without reservation, I would recommend taking an art class with Sharon.
Nancy
Sharon McNeil is a talented instructor. She is able to assist students in retaining crucial information regarding source of light, shadow placement and overall composition. She is skilled at color mixing. In our classes she set up large still life arrangements at the center of the room that were our focus. She provided painting demonstrations that helped put theory into action. A good teacher.

He often let's the student take control, only to intercede when needed. Dan has a good use of color and could depict wonderful wildlife scenes-wildlife is his forte"

She is so accommodating and flexible in her timing and at my request was also willing to use her garage for the lesson instead of her living-room as I was weary of health conditions in these covid times.
