I will teach you how to draw/paint what you see. I don't teach you cookie-cutter "how to paint a horse" type of lesson, because this limits you to only draw a specific thing. With me, you will learn the theories of drawing or painting and have the opportunity to practice it with me as your guide. Once you understand the theory behind transferring what you see onto paper, you can draw/paint any subject!
What is unique about my lessons is I not only teach students the techniques of observational drawing or painting, but the theory and strategies of creating and self-expression. I help students discover or improve their unique visual language in order to make art that is meaningful and personal.

Boris was a fantastic painting teacher -- knowledgeable, personable, and professional. He was very communicative before the lesson regarding the topic, materials, and timing. Doing an in-home lesson was convenient and made the experience even more memorable. We especially appreciated the convenience of him bringing most of the supplies, while offering the option for us to provide them ourselves for cost savings and to continue painting afterward.

Upon arrival he asked great questions to understand our level of experience with acrylic painting, and walked us through tutorials on techniques before we started the main topic. Then during the lesson he was patient and adaptable as my girlfriend and I expressed our individual art styles. Overall we had a fantastic time and would recommend to anyone looking for a fun and relaxing way to expand their skills and experiences.

Art is fun at all ages and I have experience teaching four to fifty-year-olds! My high school art students have won awards at the local, regional, and national levels mostly for drawings and paintings. We even made a couple community murals before I moved away from Houston, TX. Please see my online portfolio and student artwork at www.shinestudioshouston.com.

I have been a professional oil painter for 36 years and have taught oil and acrylic painting classes fro over a decade. I teach a casual, fun but serious style class. My goal is to teach the basics of creating a simple strong painting in a semi realistic style. However, my goal is to allow the student to develop their own individual style. Understanding the creative process is also key to making good art.

About Daniel

My name is Dan. The only thing that I love more than painting is teaching students how to paint. I call my teaching method, "serious play". In other words, I want the students to learn something of value during each class, but also to enjoy the creative process that is key to making a successful p

Keep the brushes wet, make every stroke count! Very patient - you’ve just got to do it. Been invaluable in guiding the composition - he can’t hold the brush for you! For a “left brained” person like myself I need to get the “slap”!😄

Bridget is an amazing piano teacher. My 9 year old daughter loved that she would help her with pop songs as well as the traditional lesson book. She also helped her with voice audition songs for her musical theater group. We highly recommend!

"Isabela is great. As a student, I was challenged by this first lesson. She used great tools for the lesson such as cotton balls and q-tips. It was great not to be asked to buy new brushes or special paint. Be aware that she is a gentle person, but she works fast. No paint is going to dry on her canvas before she is done.!"
