I like to take pride in making my students feel secure and knowing and seeing the improvement they make within each session. I will be handing out a materials list prior to our lessons. Most students see a huge leap in drawing within the the first lesson! Class starts out usually with me giving a 1 hour demonstration on what I expect them to do as I cover and explain my entire process and thought and calculations that goes into drawing and painting. For the rest of the class I will be besides the student as they work giving them one on one pointers and as much help and explanation as they need in order to improve. Students start out with learning how to look and draw what they observe accurately by first working on simple geometric shapes such as spheres, cubes. We then will move on to Cast studies and after a few months of studying we will start on figures and portraits.

About Kai Lun
Hi, there! My name is Kai, and I can't wait to meet you!
Spreading the joy of drawing and painting has always been a great pleasure of mines.

Being trained in China's most prestigious and renowned fine arts academy, CAFA (China Central Academy of Fine ArtsI) as well as studying in Tianjin Academy of Fine Arts, Shanghai Art and Design Academy, and Ruth Asawa School of the Arts, I offer art classes in traditional realistic painting and drawing techniques, both Online and in my studio I set up within my studio.

Students of all levels are welcome. From beginners who love art and drawing but who have not had formal training, to experienced artists who want to gain a more solid grasp of fundamental principles, historical training methods lead to significant skill development within a few months of teaching.

Kai has been a terrific teacher for me. I went with one idea of what I wanted and Kai has made me re-evaluate and has taken me to a place where my skill set will be so very much stronger. And he's done the in a caring and patient way that makes the whole process easy and enjoyable. I have learned more than I thought I would in a very short period of tie. Kai is a terrific teacher.

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.

Drawing involves training the eye to see basic lines, shapes, textures, and values while looking at an image . Everyone can train their eyes to see and draw! You will learn the process of simplifying an image while coordinating your eye and hand movement on paper. Depending on your artistic preference the drawing(s) can range from a sketch to a detailed rendering. Skills you will learn are:

Process of drawing
Composition
Value
Texture
Space
Shading and understanding pencil types

Depending on your preference and experience, I can teach you drawing methods for pencil, charcoal, color pencil, soft pastel, or oil pastel. We can focus on drawing 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.

Students will also learn composition, perspective, and different ways to create dynamic and visually appealing images. light an

Come learn professional drawing skills and fun concepts! I can help you create your own artworks, set your discipline goals, and you will see you improve. drawing is a kind of art which you can play with for a very long time, it also needs a long time to practice and do research. People will slowly find their personal preferred style and material and have fun during the quiet hours when they trying to create something new. different line quality, color tone, and transparency means different expressions. I recommend 60 minutes and 90 minutes classes because a relatively long time can give us a chance to slowly make a shape other than rush the process. I believe you will enjoy the class!

About Penghuan
I'm a graduate of Beijing Institute of Fashion Technology and The School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston where I majored in studio art with a focus on drawing, Painting, animation, and printmaking.

I've taught students who want to go to art college before in Hebei and NY, the program included still life and portraits with many different materials, fun compositions of painting, drawing, collage, and sculpture. portfolio creation and interest development. It also includes perspective drawing skill training, etc.

Students will learn how to create dynamic and appealing images with different tools: charcoals, pencils, pastels, etc. I will show you how to use color contraction and light, shadows to create the effect you want.

classes' contents could fit for students' personal interests. I would love to address and focus on it wit
h you!

With nearly 10 years of architecture and visualization experience, drawing is a skill that I use daily. I will tailor lessons to each students' interest and determine which level is appropriate to begin. I am experienced with perspectival drawing and still life and have worked extensively with charcoal, graphite, and ink.

About Christopher
I am a professional designer and researcher who has successfully taught students of all experience levels in a range of subjects including architecture, college-application essays, design software, English, and math. I graduated from Columbia, and I am passionate about helping others learn.

My strengths include working with students to visualize and achieve their goals, discovering areas for improvement, and, most importantly, getting results. My students have gone from zero knowledge in architecture and design software to full literacy. My students have increased English and math scores both in the classroom and on exams. Finally, with my coaching, students have written college application essays that earned them a place at prestigious institutions such as Columbia, Cornell, and Harvard, among others.

I live in the New York City
area and enjoy working with both in-person and online students.

30 years in as an artist and instructor/ art therapist. I have a unique approach of meeting the student where they are. I break down elements of art making into steps that work for each student's ability and perception. I can create lesson plans that are tailored to the student's interests and keep the process interesting. most important is to allow the student to develop their own unique style of self expression.

About Pamela
I am very experienced working with children and teens. I have been a credentialed art teacher/ therapist for many years. I believe that making art is a joyful experience and can open up creative self expression. Plus, its fun! I love sketching, doodling, painting, and mixed media.

I have a private practice as an art therapist (specializing in children with special needs and autism), but I can put on my instructor hat and focus on skill building in drawing, painting and mixed media.

I love to help students create their own unique style and I do not judge or critique harshly, but gently show students the steps involved.
