Depends on the student's level, teaches only 13+

About Manhei
Lessons will be divided into three parts:

1.First a brief introduction to some basic elements in the language of drawing and painting on the pictorial plane
Including perception, color theories, perspective and pictorial design.
2.The second part of the lessons is practice, where the fun begins! Students apply what they learn into and develop their own practice.
3.Once the student is comfortable with the lessons introduced hitherto, he or she will be encouraged to develop his or her own voice, narrative and artistic vision.

. Nothing is more satisfying than hearing my students going home with new pieces of knowledge that he or she is unaware of before. Maybe a new idea, a new way of thinking, new perspective at perceiving.
.I had never ceased to be amazed by the creativity of my students as every single one of them is also my t
eacher.
. I should try my very best effort to live up to the standards and ideal I have set for myself.

Manhei and I have been colleagues for the longest time and he is by far one of the most exceptionally skilled artists that I have had the fortune to know. Both in his philosophical approach to teaching and his own art. He is very patient and will help you build your skill level in the arts to new heights. Definitely take this opportunity to study with him before he gets too expensive.

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.

I have been teaching painting for 7 years and my students have gone on to pursue their passion and gain a greater appreciation of art. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to understand your tools and learn techniques, and as time goes on you'll begin to see how everything comes together to help you portray your vision in your work. I specialize in landscape but am also experienced in a wide range of styles, from representational to abstract. I enjoy the opportunity to share art with my students and see them reach their goals.

About Marc
Hi, my name is Marc M. and I can't wait to challenge and guide you through the process of making art. I have been teaching private lessons since 2008 and have taught courses at community art centers since 2014. I believe drawing and painting is a skill that everyone can learn by gaining knowledge of basic principles and fundamentals. I went to The Art Institute of Boston and earned a bachelors degree in Fine Art in 2007. I'm a respectful and open-minded person and my teaching style is intuitive, encouraging and challenging. I enjoy the opportunity to share painting and art with my students, and look forward to working with you and helping you find your artistic voice.

I have been very pleased with the original artwork that Marc has done for me through the years. I was also extremely happy with a restoration project that he was able to complete in a timely fashion. Marc has also worked very well with my three children from very young ages to now their teenage years.
5 stars for his abilities!!

I have been familiar with Marc’s artwork for many years, and over that time his painting abilities and technique have grown and developed, bringing his already natural abilities to an even higher level. Marc always remains engaged in the art community, and is also knowledgeable in art history. If you spend any time with him, you will quickly get to know his cheerful, fun, (and at times slightly eccentric) personality. He pushes himself to create artwork with a variety of different techniques to maintain versatility in his painting abilities, and this makes him well suited for teaching, because he will be able to help you with whatever you want/need to learn for your own paintings. I would recommend Marc to anybody looking to improve their painting abilities while also enjoying the learning process.

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 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.

About Cynthia Coco
Good greetings!

I have 10+ years of experience in teaching, tutoring, and leading workshops. Currently, I am enjoying managing my own small business while teaching students part time.

I had the wonderful opportunity to work abroad, teaching English, Spanish, photography, and textile design. After a couple years of traveling throughout South America and Europe, I've decided to plop down in Asheville, NC, where I would love to continue teaching.

I am a clothing designer and botanical dyer by trade and also have experience in fine art, performance art, dance, and expressive arts therapy. These are also mediums I would be happy to share.

Learning should be a fun process, so I'm always excited work within each student's interest.

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 to one room during our in-person lesson.

I've observed Elissa teaching and she is wonderfully compassionate, patient, and warm with children. 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.

Gwynn Oak, MD

I am a graduate of the Baltimore School for the Arts (BSA) majoring in visual artists and continued my studies at the Maryland Institute College of Art. In my spare time, I've taught for the last 15 years. I've tutored actual BSA students. I love painting. I love teaching art. It is an expression of an individual's personal journey.

The most fabulous thing about being an artist is that boundaries regarding creativity are non-existent. The artist is always in a state of learning. Art is a progressive practice that takes time to develop.

Students will be introduced to the color wheel, basic materials needed, perspective, and the differences between realistic and impressionistic painting techniques. Materials are not included.
Painting lessons will be assessed based on the individual's current abilities and their goals.

About Sharron
My resume includes graduating from the Baltimore School for the Arts and continued studies at the Maryland Institute College of Art until I decided I didn’t want to be a “Starving Artist”. So, I graduated from the University of Baltimore with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Business Administration with a minor in Human Resources Management. My education also includes 27 graduate credits that were leading to a Master’s in Public Administration when I decided to discontinue that path. After twenty-five years in the public sector, I decided to revisit my passion for art in my spare time. As a youngster, I remember wanting to teach art in schools, but I did not want the restrictions that are present in the classrooms and more so today. All forms of art is a freeing practice that is practiced and developed over time.

Why not have your yo
ungsters sit for an actual tutoring session and learn something while being entertained? I like to incorporate age-appropriate art (drawing) or activities in any of my academic sessions to keep my students engaged and entertained.
