Even in the first hour-long lesson, CJ was able to show me basic drawing techniques that will be really helpful as I continue to work on my skills. She was helpful and friendly and we had a great time!

It is hard to get a lot out of a lesson doing it remotely. And in one hour! She was wonderful but I think I would like to try lessons either in a group setting or individual face to face. That way she could help me correct mistakes as I go.

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.

For children ages 4-11, I aim to focus on strengths, while building new skills. Drawing, painting, sculpting, collage, and printing are areas for exploration and growth. For older children and teens, I aim to focus on developing one's own style with continued exploration of art technique. I also have experience teaching painting an drawing to adults, inspiring them to discover their passion for art! I am flexible with my time and often give assignments or projects to work on after each session.

earing from you and helping you or your children achieve creative success, strengthen existing talent, and develop new artistic skills!

About Jeff K.

Malden, MA

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.

Students can expect to learn how to use different drawing tools like charcoal, ink, pencil, conte crayon, etc...

Students will also learn composition, perspective, and different ways to create dynamic and visually appealing images. light an
d shadow, shading, creating and fleshing out various objects and forms, and more!

Lessons can be tailored to the interests of the student! If there's an area you are keen to focus on or improve, i'm happy to address and focus on it with you.

About David
Dedicated art professional with 18 years of experience in creating artwork utilizing various medias. In my early years I worked as an outsider artist giving watercolor lessons for Susan Edwards of the artist place called "The Art Attack in Sycamore Illinois. After some years of painting and displaying my work at outdoor art shows and inside some stores i went to Northern Illinois University and obtained my Bachelor of Fine Art in painting. I have joined art leagues and art guilds near where I live. I recommend the Kishwaukee Valley Art League and the Rockford Art guild. There i learned how to reach children and adults on how to get interested in painting. Strong competency in teaching and leading aspiring artists in group or individualized settings. In order to become a better artist you learn by drawing in a sketchbook from photos i
will assign every two weeks. If you think they are good then you will redraw them in a journal. We will critique them by email and make wonderful discoveries on how you are getting very good at becoming an artist.

Inside my art studio I have had artists stick to my belief that a sketchbook and a journal with pencils is the best way to improve.

Happy Drawing and remember my favorite words "Just Paint"!

I start with very basic shapes. a straight line, circle, square & triangle. By using these basic shapes I make drawing and painting simple.

About Darrel
I have been drawing and painting since a very young age. Recently, I decided to make an attempt to teach others. I keep things simple and work at the pace or talent of the student I'm working with.
I can teach students to be free and let the pen, pencil or paint brush flow or I can teach students how to be very precise and detailed. I'm able to teach students both basic and advanced techniques based of their experience and understanding of art.
I have a degree in Graphic Design, Web Design and Interior Design so I'm very familiar with the aspects design and creativity.
I use various techniques that produce results in a simple, fun and stress free way. It seems as if my students improve each and every time they pick up their pencil or brush. I look forward to meeting my next student and making them a better artist.

Brendan is a great instructor! I've taken both painting and drawing lessons with Brendan and I've learned more from taking a few lessons with him then I thought I could learn in a year! His lessons are both fun and insightful with his teaching methods combining expressionist style and technical skills. You can tell he's passionate about teaching you how to learn and discover on your own and he's always encouraged me to take risks with my work. I can't wait for my next lesson.

I have a graduate degree from Laguna College of Art and Design. For more than five years I have enjoyed teaching private and group lessons to children and adults of all ages! My class is full of technical skill but also allows for imagination and creativity! I am very flexible and can adapt to my students interests and needs. I am advanced in oils, acrylics, watercolors, pastel and have even dabbled in digital art and character design. My personal work involves representational realism in portraiture and still life, but I absolutely welcome all subjects. I even love to paint outdoors with my students!

About Terra
Terra Novak was born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada. She has pursued a love of drawing and painting from a very young age. Terra was greatly influenced in fine arts by her mother Annette Novak, who studied at Columbus College of Art and Design. The classical styles of art have always been compelling to Terra and inspired her to further pursue studies in fine art at Laguna College of Art & Design in Laguna Beach, California.
Terra is a contemporary realist painter with an emphasis in portraiture. Though experienced in various mediums, she has found a love for painting in oil. She strives to create a connection with the viewer through portraiture. By capturing the sitter in a natural setting, she is able to communicate their true character and spirit in her work. She pays careful attention to composition and lighting as they are sp
ecific to each individual painting.
