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.

I've been teaching painting for 15 years. I work with my students to customize lessons to their individual needs. Working with specific goals, I can help students achieve whatever level of painting they wish to achieve. I have taught lessons with students of all ages and all levels. I teach the importance of understanding composition, light and shadow. Together, we can work on realism, abstraction, figurative, landscape or anything you desire!

About Adam
I am contemporary realist painter and I have just recently moved to Jacksonville, Florida. I received an MFA from the New York Academy of Art in Manhattan. For four years I worked as a painter and sculptor for world-renowned artist Jeff Koons. I have taught painting as an Adjunct Painting Professor at Brooklyn College, City University of New York and South Piedmont Community College. I have also worked as a Post Graduate Teaching Assistant at the New York Academy of Art.

I aim to achieve two goals in my teaching. First, I want to help students understand how to "see" rather than look. Being able to break down shapes, light and shadow in the visual field is really important. Furthermore, I aim to help students understand how to work with their desired medium. Whether a student wishes to use oil paints, acrylic paints, charcoal or any nu
mber of mediums, it is important to understand the best way to utilize each medium. With these two goals in mind, I customize and individualize lessons for students of all ages and levels.

Adam is very good at building immediate rapport. He quickly assessed where I am in my journey to learn oil painting and was able to walk along side me leading the way. I felt comfortable to ask questions or make comments. I've already learned so much just in my first lesson.

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.

I have had many Solo, Group, and Invitational Exhibitions at several prestigious locations. I look forward to h
earing from you and helping you or your children achieve creative success, strengthen existing talent, and develop new artistic skills!

I've been instructing painters for several years both beginners and experienced. I love to see people get creative and I can help you too in a laid back format. I am an expert artist/painter with artwork all over the world. If you're new to painting, as long you have a little artistic talent (even if undiscovered) I can teach you to paint. Whether you want to learn just for fun or plan to go to design school, I can teach brush techniques and various subject matters - Abstract, impressionist, still life, portrait (intermediate only) and landscapes/seascapes and even human figures. If you'd like to learn to create digital paintings or traditional paintings, I can teach either.

I can help you get started or pick up where you left off. I prefer acrylics or oil paints.

About Nicole
I love art and I am passionate about making things beautiful. That spills over into Graphic design, Painting and more: I have 20+ years as a graphic designer, photographer 10+ years, artist/painter and I even ran a print shop for several years so I know what you need to prep files for printing, photography, page layout, web and much more so that your files meet industry standards. If your a fast learner, I can go at a faster pace, if you need more time, I am fine with that too. My goal is for you to learn well, advance and put the skills I teach you to use. Then we will layer that info and move on. I'll incorporate reviewing what we worked on before in the future lessons. I want you to be able to put to practice what I teach you so that you can successfully manage on your own in that area.

I love being outside, I love the water and g
et inspired by nature. I am not a camping type person but could sleep outside nightly (on a screened in porch, LOL). I love to enjoy life and want you to enjoy learning something new as well.

Nicole professionally layed out, designed, and printed the obituary of my husband using Adobe Photoshop. Her helpful, yet sensitive suggestions regarding picture arrangements on the pages of the obituary were appreciated. She was timely and easy to work with. I highly recommend her as an instructor.

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.

Learn how to stretch watercolor paper and blend techniques of watercolor dyes and ink to create a unique look!

About Latausha
I love, love, love to create! I am a graduate of Columbus College of Art & Design where I received my Bachelors of Fine Arts in Illustration. I love to explore color, lighting & textures. Currently, I own a party business where all the decorations are handmade. I try to find a way to be creative everyday.

Telling stories through art is very important to me. This is why I am a Children's Illustrator. Being able to draw something, add color and tell a story is an honor. Illustrating allows me to teach someone or cause a reaction solely based on what I create.

I learned to combine ink and watercolor dyes while in college. It was given as a one time assignment but I began to use the technique and make it my own by practicing on different subject matter.

I also specialize in digital illustrations through the use of Adobe Illustrator , dra
wing and pointillism. Pointillism is one of my favorite techniques. It can be very tedious but the finished product is impactful and rewarding.

Book a lesson with me and I assure you that you will take your personal creations to the next level! I want to help you achieve your personal goals.

Art from the Heart! It is my opinion that, as an artist, Art is supposed to be affordable so that all may own a special piece. I will teach you to paint using your photos or 'en plein air' (outdoors). Painting will be done in a park near my home or a coffee shop on Cass Street so that we can flick paint all over the place. We begin with the basic color wheel and move on to other subjects as you continue lessons. I will supply all colors. I only use paint from a supplier in LA which provides the studios with their paint colors. They have the most true pigments of any paint that I have used in my 40 years of painting. They are the same exact price or lower than local art suppliers paint products. The main focus is to slow your mind and concentrate on details no matter how long it takes. As artists we are our own worst critic; the public painting will also expose you to positive comments from the public who love to see people paint outdoors.

About James
I am best known for putting a lot of life and exactness into the eyes on my canvas; humans and pets. I have been painting for over 40 years. During this time I have continued my education by taking classes from other Artists and schools. I have used pastels, oil paints, charcoal, pencil, clay, mixed media, watercolor and acrylic. I prefer Acrylic for its control, exact pigment and drying time. Which affects over all project time. My specialties are faces, animals and abstract. All of which have been commissioned for me to paint or was a result of my donation of a custom painting to local charities.

James really took the time to explain the acrylic colors and shading. Especially great that I now know the difference between translucent, opaque and transparent. I have painted for years but his classes helped me rediscover a live for painting people. The eyes were the hardest until I realized I must capture the tiniest detail. I recommend him for any class. Very patient and very generous soul! Thank you!!!!!

James shares his skill as an artist with great patience and ease. He was willing to share and explain different methods and skills in colors, shading, and textures. He is able to cover many subjects matters. He also conveyed ways to enhance the painting I was creating.

I've watched first hand while James created some beautiful silver jewelry. He started with raw material, melted the silver, poured into molds, added gems, ending with gorgeous necklaces and/or earrings etc. He truly loves creating and is extremely talented which makes him able to pass on his skill to other

Painting is about learning the process of layering and building an image out of colorful shapes, lines, texture, and value! You will learn the following:

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 ages 3 to 50 explore their own creativity while learning painting, drawing, and sculpting skills.

I believe every individual no matter the age, experience, or inherent ability can learn to draw, paint, and sculpt! 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 while 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. You will have a project during our in-pe
rson or online sessions together followed by an assignment or goal to achieve before our next session. Children will focus on solidifying their artistic strengths while learning artistic techniques in every aspect of art. I will tailor the teachings to the student's area(s) of interest that strengthen their artistic style with visual art tools, especially for children and teens. Adults will rekindle their passion for art by revisiting the foundations of art.

I look forward to unlocking your or your child’s creative potential and strengthening existing talent with artistic techniques!

*Caution: If you or your child has cat allergies, I own a cat. Depending on the severity of your allergies, I am flexible to confining the cat during our in-person lesson.

She's also incredibly passionate and talented about art and has an excellent way of helping children unlock their creative potential. Her teaching style is loving while balanced with great expectations. She is very professional and as an educator and parent myself, I wholeheartedly recommend her.
