Private Watercolor Painting Teacher

I've been painting for 46 years and teaching for the last 11 years. My passion is painting, or other mediums, animal and wildlife art. I've been fortunate enough to do hundreds of pet portraits for people over the years and love to do artwork of the wonderful wildlife that I have around me in Florida. Do you have (or had) that pet that you wanted to do a portrait of, let me help you achieve that. Send me a message and we'll go from there.

About Mike

I eventually came down to Florida to go to the Art Institute of Ft. Lauderdale where they switched me to acrylic paint an

Kiersten's fine art lessons focus on two central ideas: 1. Helping students understand and refine excellent technique, and 2.Cultivating, encouraging, and polishing each student's individual style. Kiersten incorporates concepts and exercises based on the atelier, a classical French program that teaches practical, time-tested methods used by master artists throughout history. Lessons usually follow a specific schedule, one that Kiersten has adjusted and perfected through the years. Each class begins with an introduction, followed by an exercise or art game that helps students to warm up and focus on practicing a skill without the pressure of learning while trying to create a finished piece. Next, Kiersten gives a lecture-usually with a slideshow of examples- and/or does a demonstration for the students(s). After this, students work on an assigned project, which is often taught in a step-by-step manner, and finally, students are given time to work on an individually chosen piece under

Watercolor painting has a way of showing emotion and expression. 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. The students main objective is to learn, by painting what the individual wishes to paint (personal projects that sparks and continues the creativity within).

Materials are not included.

Watercolor painting lessons will be assessed based on the individual's current abilities and their goals.

Note:
For virtual sessions, the student will need to create a conducive workspace that will allow teacher/student viewing of art work in progress. The student will need a workspace with lots of light. Often, I will ask to see the students progress, so that I may be ...

Like drawing and other forms of art, painting begins with technique and fun. I want to encourage a love for art and painting brings out that love and develops creativity. I graduated from art school in 2020 and immediately began teaching children online due to the pandemic. I am a published illustrator of children’s books and used watercolor painting to illustrate the books. I love teaching and seeing the joy others experience with art.

They can expect me to teach them how to mix colors, what brushes to use for which projects, how to produce different effects with watercolor, how much water to add to the pain to get the desired consistency, and how to make beautiful watercolor art. Do you love to draw and paint? I do, too!! I've taught Art (Drawing and Painting) for over 20 years! I will help you achieve this. We all start out as young children drawing things, then over time, we get self-conscious and judgmental about our ability to draw. No matter your age, I can help you make beautiful pieces of art. I've taught students from age 5 to adult with great success, and I look forward to having the opportunity to teach you!

Margie is a phenomenal art instructor and artist – I highly recommend her classes to art learners of all ages! Whether you are interested in improving and practicing new art skills or looking for a fun art activity for your kids or with friends, Margie’s art classes are right for you! Margie gives excellent step-by-step instruction to create a wide variety of art subjects and styles, and can teach any art medium (watercolor paint, colored pencil, acrylic, etc.) in virtual and in-person settings. During lessons, Margie is great at giving individual feedback to each student in both group and individual sessions and encourages her students to explore and express their own creativity while they create – you will have a lot of fun and feel proud of the art you make in Margie’s classes. I took several of Margie’s art lessons with a group of friends (adult age group) and we learned to create a wide variety of subjects (nature, floral, animal, & human subjects) and learned to use several different mediums including watercolor, colored pencil, oil pastels, pencil & marker – I learned something new with every image/medium, love the art we got to create, and had the best time!
Stacy
Margie is a complete pro. She handles all skill levels with encouragement and support, but also offers constructive and helpful pointers to actually improve skills. She is kind, talented, and makes me look forward to art projects!
Stephen
Our experience with Miss Margie teaching our daughter Art Classes has been life-changing for our daughter. Ms. Margie's attention to detail and understanding of the foundation skills needed to be an artist could not be more competent.

Our daughter is becoming a fantastic artist and is getting attention in middle school from the local magnet high schools due to her ability to create art based on the foundation skills that Ms. Margie has given her.

I don't think you could find any better teacher in the United States than Ms. Margie. Through these art lessons our daughter has gained a confidence in herself, the ability to create beautiful works of art, and a deep understanding of the foundation skills required in art.

We have been with Ms. Margie for three years and do not intend to stop lessons anytime soon. There is no doubt in my mind that Ms. Margie is the right teacher for your child. Ms. Margie is not only a great art teacher but a fabulous person which is rare in the teacher these days.

You will definitely be getting more than your money's worth from Ms. Margie. No one cares more than Ms. Margie about providing a great education in art. You will not be disappointed.

"After viewing some of my paintings she was spot on identifying bad habits and offered many ways to improve. She is immensely skilled as a diagnostician. She presented her points clearly and fully without being condescending. Very much worth the investment. Can’t wait for the next lesson. Due warning. She can assign homework."
