I've been doing water color painting for years and would love to help you.

For the basics of watercolor you'll learn color theory, how to use paint brushes, techniques etc. The beginner lessons are more organized lessons and structured to go over the basics.

But, the more advanced is where you come to me with what you'd like to paint, and I'll give you techniques and tips on your projects.

I have years of experience working with children aged 4-19, and adults who are anywhere between starting a hobby to perfecting painting techniques. Of course, beginners start with basic techniques, but I like to work toward a completed painting within 1-2 hours, when using acrylics, 1 hour or less with watercolors, or approximately 10 hours with oils, due to the drying time required. Everyone likes to end a lesson with something solid to show their progress.
I paint with acrylics, watercolors, oils, and epoxy resin. I don’t have a preference, as each medium is fantastic in its own way.

About Alicia

So you’re considering painting lessons... Excellent idea! Art lessons encourage you to use your imagination and be creative. They’re a fun activity for parties, a great way to get homeschooled children together for socializing, a fantastic introduction to a lifelong passion, and are wonderful for a

This was my first lesson with this website. I really enjoyed Jane's laid back style and friendly going personality. She was easy to connect with and talk to. Extremely helpful. I like how she focused on exactly what I was asking for help with and didn't waste my time with unnecessary help.

"I've known Emily for years and while I'm not an artist, I have observed her teaching children how to draw, particularly during summer classes at the College of Saint Rose in Albany. She always tries to make each activity fun and engaging and does her best to help everyone understand how to draw, paint, sketch, and even how to design good characters. She genuinely does care about art, and that passion shines into her lessons for sure.

I don't draw, but if I chose to, I'd definitely pick Emily as my teacher over anyone else."

Rather than hard and fast lessons, it was an opportunity to spend time, one on one, with a professional and learn from his experiences what works and what doesn't."

"Jonathan is such an inspiring and motivating photographer.

I was fortunate enough to participate in one of his workshops almost a year back. This review is based on the amazing experience during the workshop and highly beneficial interactions with him beyond that.

The workshop itself was wonderful. Jonathan made sure that every participant understood exactly what he was talking about on a one on one basis. ‘Patience’ - the virtue great photographers are known for was on display live. There were beginners, intermediate and professional level photographers and each of them learned a lot from Jonathan and from each other. The biggest impact was the photography community feeling Jonathan created in us and all of us interacts with each other even after a year and learn together via social media groups.

As part of the conference, there was a street photography session where we interacted with strangers and got their photographs. It was a great experience. Being new to Minneapolis and from a different culture and upbringing, this experience helped me to gain a lot of confidence and finally I was able to come out of my shell.

The best part about Jonathan is, he helps me out so much with my photography even months after the workshop. Also, he provides the opportunity to assist during photo shoots which help me a lot to learn just by observing. It really really helps me improve my photography knowledge and experience.

I would definitely recommend Jonathan to anyone who is looking to get into the photography world. He is such a great teacher who will inspire and be with you throughout your journey!!"

"I've learned a lot of things from Tim while working next to him. When I finally set a side some time for a lesson I was very pleased. I learned how important taking extra time with my values while sketching was, and to take special care of how the light reflects off of the eyes of my subjects. Just thinking about these two simple things instantly brought more emotion out of my sketches. Tim is a truly skilled illustrator and designer but more importantly he has a gift for teaching and working with others to achieve a goal."
