I have a Masters of Art education. I enjoy teaching students of all ages (kids, teens and adults) no matter what level of experience or ability. Not only do I teach drawing, I’m skilled in Painting, Sculpture, and Mixed Media. All art lessons are designed around the students needs. Students learn at their own pace.

About David

I’m an outside the box thinker and utilize all my skills to provide a fun and engaging atmosphere to enlighten, and encourage my students. I tailor my lessons to each individual student, everybody learns differently and I can appreciate and accommodate for that. I love being an artist and teacher

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 Acad

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.

I have been involved in art my whole life from being featured in art shows to owning my own professional face painting business. I've been teaching art professionally for 5 years now. I've taught art to kids as youn 5 years old and adults of many ages. I teach art in a way that is easy to understand for anyone. What I teach will give students a solid foundation to be able to draw anything they want. I teach my students not only to draw but how to use their eyes to simplify what they're seeing to be able to draw it.

An exhibiting and award-winning artist, with a Masters Degree in Art and Art History, Thomasin offers high quality lessons and workshops for beginner to intermediate/advanced students.

Students develop their creativity by exploration and experimentation, while learning essential techniques of drawing, painting, sculpting and other methods of making art. Critical and creative thinking about the students' own work is encouraged.

In the classes I cover an extensive variety of subject matter and mediums including portraits, landscape, still-life, illustration, working with line, color, light & dark, perspective & ...

"I have really enjoyed my drawing lessons with Kelvin! He is very detailed in his instruction and ensures that his students learn the essential skills necessary to become good drawers. He is very encouraging and honest in his feedback. I appreciate his transparency when critiquing my work. I need to hear the truth in order to get better. When I draw something that he is astounded by, I will know that I have truly earned his respect. My lessons fly by because we're having such a good time. I'm enjoying the journey."
