I have worked with Matt in portfolio development from when I was 12 and going into high school, to 15, as I develop my college portfolio. He has encouraged me with new ideas, understandings about art, and helped me be confident in what I want to create. Preparing for my college portfolio especially, being committed and making time to create was important in my development, as Matt was able to give helpful feedback that allowed me to finish up to 25 works. His style of teaching is accepting of all art forms, and his own creativity allows for unique portfolio pieces. Thank you for all of the great sessions!

I provide classical instruction in portraiture, still life and landscape in your studio or mine. In this traditional approach to drawing and painting, what will be taught and focused upon are perspective, value and composition in order for the student to develop strong visual language skills. The program of study begins with a specific focus on drawing, since drawing is the foundation upon which all great traditional art is built. Throughout this training, emphasis will be placed on accuracy, or more specifically, seeing and rendering correctly such things as line quality, hard and soft edges, proportion, positive and negative space through abstract form and the use of the full range of values.

About Jeff

I'm a graduate of Dean College in Franklin, MA and The School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston where I majored in art history and studio art with a focus on portrait painting and illustration. I continued further study at the Andeeva Portrait Academy in Sante Fe New Mexico, the Los Angeles Acad

Hi! Are you frustrated with muddy and poor color choices in your paintings, the inaccurate drawing of your subject, and overall mediocrity? I will help you overcome the fear and frustration of painting with some sound color theory and drawing methods. You can learn to apply colors that are bold and fresh. As artists who continually learn, I believe there is no wrong in exploring colors, When we continue to paint, we learn what didn't work and apply what does work. That is how we improve! The more we practice in small steps and the greater our success!

About Rita

I have been teaching and painting since 1983. I am also a professional mural artist and found that my painting improved many years after art school. I was frustrated back then and painting seemed so complicated! Is that you? I figured out, with my own research, the freedom and fun in painting. Y

Do you want to paint like Rembrandt? Do you want to be the next Van Gogh? Or maybe you want to be able to paint a portrait of your family dog! Well, these are the online classes for you! My name is Timothy and I have been oil painting for 25 years. I enjoy sharing my art experience with others, no matter what age, no matter where you are beginning. I can begin with the simplest subject matter in painting, and advance you into more advanced subject matter such as portraiture and painting from life. My training is a balance of self-taught instruction and my art teacher, John Gordon of, the designer of the Green Bay Packers logo!

The lessons will be based on the skill level of the student. We will paint from observation as well as from photographs. Art History will be incorporated and we will study the paintings of the masters. In the students paintings, focus will be on perspective, color, composition, and accuracy in proportions.

"I really love taking painting lessons with Eileen at her studio. First of all, the studio is in an awesome old factory building and has a really cool vibe. Secondly, Eileen knows all kinds of techniques and was really good at settIng up exercises that were simple (not overwhelming or stressful) but still allowed a lot of room for me to experiment with color and brushwork."

"Having Mr. Ohasi as an Instructor has been one of the most valuable and enjoyable things I've done in life. It sounds a bit cliche, but in all honesty, I've learned more about myself in the time I've worked with him than I've done in a long while.

He not only helped me understand how to build my skills, but also that its okay to be an individual. At the same time he taught me how art centers around community and helping each other develop into people who can help others. He helped me to put my thoughts/ dreams on canvas and helped me make them real. I truly enjoy his classes!"

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. I’m looking forward to another session next week"
