From beginner skills such as choosing the brushes to creating dynamic designs this is the class for you. Using special water based oil paint this will be the easiest way to paint fine detail.

About Lynn
Lynn B. attended four of the very best art colleges in the country With over 40 years experience in both painting and teaching art, she is well equipped to teach both any style and medium and to absolute beginners through advanced students.

Ms. Buettner has studied at several of the most prestigious art schools in the Northeast including: Rhode Island School of Design, The New York Art Students' League, the Paier College of Art in Connecticut, and the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston. Her work has been shown in galleries throughout the United States and Canada, and is in collections worldwide. Summering on the East Coast on Martha's Vineyard Island, Ms. Buettner's work quickly became known and collected by local residents and returning island guests. Most originals were sold while still on her easel.

To keep up with demand, sh
e created a complete product line including collector's limited edition prints, her signature greeting card with collectible art magnet, art magnets, post cards, photo magnet frames, calendars, notebooks, folders and photo albums.

The publishing company that licensed her designs flew her to China to do an art signing at the Canton World Trade Show.

Enthusiastically sharing her knowledge, she has taught all levels of art to both beginners and adults for the past thirty years. She created and taught a very successful after school art program for kids for over ten years as well. After devoting the last twenty years to painting scenes ranging from realistic to impressionistic, Ms. Buettner is venturing out with her accomplished techniques and abilities, into the exciting and unusual world of intuitive expression. Letting go of conscious thoughts, an exciting, creative and sensual world emerges to be shared with the viewer. This work has been coined Neo Biomorphic.

Her work has been used on many different commercial projects including the Nash Bridges TV Show and the TV movie Diary of a Mad Housewife.

Starting a very successful after school art program for grades 1-6, she has extensive experience in all age groups bringing the student from beginning drawing to the most advanced painting techniques that took over 40 years to acquire.

Lynn was so helpful in aiding me to complete a project I have been wanting to complete. She went at my speed (sometimes slow, sometimes hasty) and helped me with techniques I had no idea about and others I just did not know how to do well. I was working on a portrait of a young girl in a dress and she helped me create the pleats in the dress and work on the girl's complextion and hair. As a hobby painter, I am very pleased with my final product which I am going to give as a gift with confidence!

Age-Appropriate areas of instruction include:
-Painting Techniques such as Layering, Mixing, Washes, and Glazing.
-Understanding Composition.
-Understanding Color Theory: Opposites or “complementary colors” on the color wheel; Painting with medium tones, so that highlights and shadows can be applied easily. Using multiple colors equals “depth” and “interest.”
-How to Mix Paint: Mixing using the palette knife, brush, on palette, or on painting.

About Eddie
I am a Grumbacher Art Certified Instructor. I am an experienced and accomplished artist; I specialize in encouraging students to explore their own creative style while also learning basic painting, drawing, and sculpting techniques.

I also have experience teaching painting an drawing to adults, inspiring them to discover their passion for art!

I made a last minute lesson with Megan as I panicked about a university project that I was in no way prepared for. She is a calming and professional energy that guides you along the first few movements. At the end of the class she summed up what the next steps would be, making sure to set me up for success. I will definitely be signing up again!

Megan was great . We did a "group " lesson with my 90 year old mother who has painted her whole life, but has not in the past 5 or so years along with my 7 year old daughter who loves art. A great experience for granddaughter and grandmother to bond.

Painting An Outlet! A Voice! A Therapy! A Career of serious potential. I am flexible as a teacher and will work with you and your goals. We can set a Plan and begin working from where you feel most ready. If its your first time with a brush I will start with the relationship painters you will establish with color, brush, and materials. These things can feel extremely technical and awkward but i can say I didn't find my own successful style until the techniques were with me like taking a breath. Its your lesson so we can be as disciplined as you want to progress. You will love it! Painting is such an emotion partner!

About Amber
I am an Art Educator, art is my life along with my two beautiful children 12 and 9 years old. They both enjoy doing art as well. I began treating art as a career in high school, my first show! I am so glad schools are now starting art shows at the elementary level, it gives students a sense of importance to those that see art as their talent; the ability to visually talk to the world. I love being a teacher; the questions, the discoveries of concepts, and of ourselves. I continue to take classes and train as I teach. The journey goes on! I hope to be able to assist in your journey of art discovery.

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 Academy of Figurative Art in Van Nuys, CA and the Sadie Valerie Atelier in San Francisco.

The program of study for drawing will include: Demonstration of one, two and three point perspective, creating the nine step value scale, cast drawing in charcoal, the still life in charcoal and drawing the portrait. The topic of composition will also be covered. I’ve done commissioned work for Audi, the Norman Rockwell Museum, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the American Repertory Theater, the Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston, Kessler Financial Ser
vices, Harvard Business School Publishing, Shilo Baptist Church, the Chelsea Soldiers Home and others. Samples of my work are available to view in my profile. Additional samples are available upon request.

Compositon
Process of Layering Paint
Color Mixing and Color Theory
Understanding Materials
Washing Materials

Depending on your preference and experience, I can teach you painting methods for watercolor, ink, acrylic, or oil. We can focus on painting the subject matter of your choice: wildlife, portraiture, landscapes, or abstract. I look forward to hearing from you!

About Elissa
I am a preschool, elementary, and middle school art teacher and an accomplished artist. I have experience teaching all ages explore creativity while learning to paint and draw. I believe every individual no matter the age, experience, or inherent ability can learn to draw and paint! I can teach any artistic style, whether it be portraiture, wildlife, landscapes, anime, abstract, or mixed media.

Lessons are structured by meeting a student’s goal while building a strong foundation in the medium of preference and familiarizing one’s self with the elements of art, principle of design, and the color theory. Students will have simple step-by-step instructions that break an image down into basic lines, shapes, and layers coupled with visual examples. Children will focus on solidifying their artistic strengths while learning artistic technique
s in every aspect of art, young adults will strengthen their art portfolio with visual art tools, and adults will rekindle their passion for art by revisiting the foundations of art.
