About Dovile
I began teaching while studying in Art Institute. My first students were 5 to 7 yr. old kids. It was very challenging, but also very rewarding. I was teaching them skills, they were teaching me patience. Later the age of my students grew, until I ended up teaching the same students I was in the same classes just 6 months ago. Again another challenge. I love challenges and even more I love helping others to overcome them.
My philosophy about teaching is that everybody can learn, it is only the way how we learn is different for different people. Another very important thing - I strive to be creative, respectful and approachable.

I have been teaching professionally for five years with both small children and adults in many different platforms. My students can expect to develop skills of sketching in paint, rendering objects realistically, color theory, color mixing, texturing and blending, and building contrast. I work with you, where you're at, and develop my lesson plans custom to your individual needs. My students and I always have a blast and make the learning experience fun.

About Sondra
Hello future student :) My name is Sondra and I would love to help you achieve your painting goals. I have a wide range of skills, from abstraction to realism and many hues in between. I received my Bachelor's in Fine Arts from The Oregon College of Art and Craft, a school that gave me background in modern, conceptual art. I also learned and revered techniques from the old Masters, such as Rembrandt, who have a classic, timeless perspective on painting. I've heard it said that it takes 10,000 hours to become a pro, which is why I give my students a painting assignment from our very first lesson. I will get you started wherever you are in your level of experience. I'll help you learn to paint what you're looking at as well as develop your own sense of style when painting expressively. I have a great eye for color and mixing and my students
have felt this was a particular advantage of learning from me. I'd love to meet you and help you on your painting journey. So sign up with me today!

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 structure my lessons in a practical and effective manner with a strong foundation in drawing and classical technique. My unique and practical method is easy to follow and quickly builds confidence and skill.

All you need is a palette, a canvas, 7 colors, some inexpensive brushes, and medium.

Eric Armusik is an outstanding classical oil painter as well as an experienced oil painting tutor and teacher. Years ago, my daughter, her boy friend and I fortunately had a very good and very successful oil painting classes with him at his home. He did a very good job in his oil painting teaching program and we did benefit a lot from his patient demonstration with all the details. He is a fantastic oil painting artist and trustworthy skillful oil painting teacher so that it really worth for joining any of his programs. I highly recommend Eric Armusik to any of potential students for enriching their individual oil painting career.

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 a mother of two beautiful children 12 and 9 years old. They both enjoy doing art as well. I began treating art as a career the first Art Show I was in, high school, I am so glad schools are now doing elementary student shows it gives a sense of importance to those that see art as their talent to show the world. I love being a teacher, the questions, the discoveries of concepts and of ourselves. I continue to take my own classes and train as I teach, There are interactions then there are new things to learn. 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.

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 and drawing.

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. You will have a project during our in-person or online sessions togeth
er 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. 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.

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

Lessons are offered in-person at my studio just outside of Boston or online. I look forward to hearing from you!

*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 to one room during our in-person lesson.

I have a master's degree in Art. As an active artist, I spend my time producing pieces professionally as well as teaching to people of all ages for over 10 years. I work with all medias, for example: acrylics, oils, watercolors, pastels, charcoal, and pencils. My joy for teaching comes from watching my students grow as artist as they improve their own style and expression. I believe the most effective way to teach artist is to seek out the inner talent in each individual. The journey that is learning about art is discovering how to make it.
