Students will identify a place that is special to them and represent the place and what makes it special through words and oil painting
“My students love this program! Truly, what an amazing gift this has been to our art community! Never have I felt so competent in incorporating art integration into my curriculum.”

About Kelvin
I am a highly organized, outcome-driven and motivated professional musician and educator with solid experience in the classroom. For the past 25 years, I have been employed with Amati music academy and seven years on the faculty of University of St Francis.
I am very comfortable with all aspects of the current music syllabus, including teaching musical concepts (such as duration, pitch, dynamics, tone color, texture and structure) as well as performance, composition. I am fully qualified, with a Bachelor of Education in Music, Double Masters in music performance and education from University of Nottingham.
I am proficient in classical, jazz and Celtic fiddle violin and possess solid skills in piano (grade 8-13) Royal conservatory system.
Throughout my teaching career, I have been driven to help students achieve their very best. I str
ongly believe that music has the power to change lives – to enhance the social, cultural and spiritual lives of people, and serve as a profound medium of personal expression. Professional perform experience: The Chicago, Natalie Cole, Smokey Robinson, Three tours with Moody Blues, YoYo Ma etc....
The most important thing I look for in a student is communication skills, as well as talent. I like to nurture students and help identify their individual strengths, which is a key factor in shaping a musical persona that will make its mark both on and offstage. I do not advocate a uniform technique for all students. Physical differences and learning styles are always taken into consideration. Potential is as important to me as early achievements and experience. My goal is to help students become self-sufficient, discriminating artists. I discuss practice techniques often and develop individualized scale routines. I encourage initiative and expressive musicality as well as precision. Above all, music needs to bring obvious joy to the student, regardless of the difficulties.”

Malden, MA

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.

We'll be discussing color mixing and blending, dry brush vs wet brush, composition, color contrast, mood and theming, and more! How to properly use and dispose of mineral spirits, clean your materials, and the benefits of oil paints as a medium, etc..

About Eli
I am a professional artist, specializing in pen and ink landscape drawings and illustrations. I graduated from SUNY Binghamton with a BA in studio art, concentration in drawing in 2014.

I've since moved back to the Boston area, where I'm from originally, and have shown and hung my drawings in many different venues around the city. I've taught workshops at Northeastern University, the Brookline Library and the Newton Library, and led classes to elementary school kids, teens and adults. With kids I often teach comic book art, and for teens and adults, we go more fine, teaching basic drawing techniques. Students can expect to learn how to use different drawing tools like charcoal, ink, pencil, conte crayon, etc...

Students will also learn composition, perspective, and different ways to create dynamic and visually appealing images. light an
d shadow, shading, creating and fleshing out various objects and forms, and more!

Lessons can be tailored to the interests of the student! If there's an area you are keen to focus on or improve, i'm happy to address and focus on it with you.

I start with very basic shapes. a straight line, circle, square & triangle. By using these basic shapes I make drawing and painting simple.

About Darrel
I have been drawing and painting since a very young age. Recently, I decided to make an attempt to teach others. I keep things simple and work at the pace or talent of the student I'm working with.
I can teach students to be free and let the pen, pencil or paint brush flow or I can teach students how to be very precise and detailed. I'm able to teach students both basic and advanced techniques based of their experience and understanding of art.
I have a degree in Graphic Design, Web Design and Interior Design so I'm very familiar with the aspects design and creativity.
I use various techniques that produce results in a simple, fun and stress free way. It seems as if my students improve each and every time they pick up their pencil or brush. I look forward to meeting my next student and making them a better artist.

I am an independent professional visual artist, with over 20 years' hands on teaching experience in U.S. and abroad.
At the age of 13, I began learning how to paint with my father, who is an established artist, in an informal studio class. Later, I decided to pursue higher education in fine arts and received my BFA and MFA degrees. While working on my Bachelor’s degree, I began teaching in schools and later in my private studio.
My expertise is to help others to discover their special talent, as I believe every person has a unique sense of creation. As an experienced art teacher and mentor, I have always provided a solid education for every one of my students and I have demonstrated an ability to engage students from diverse academic backgrounds and age groups.
My goal is to develop an understanding of and enthusiasm for arts in others by addressing different learning styles. I demonstrate both traditional practices and contemporary critical and technical approaches to painting.

Along with coursework and research, being a professional visual artist has shaped who I am as a teacher.

I would love to share this perspective with my students whenever possible.

Brendan is a great instructor! I've taken both painting and drawing lessons with Brendan and I've learned more from taking a few lessons with him then I thought I could learn in a year! His lessons are both fun and insightful with his teaching methods combining expressionist style and technical skills. You can tell he's passionate about teaching you how to learn and discover on your own and he's always encouraged me to take risks with my work. I can't wait for my next lesson.

I have a graduate degree from Laguna College of Art and Design. For more than five years I have enjoyed teaching private and group lessons to children and adults of all ages! My class is full of technical skill but also allows for imagination and creativity! I am very flexible and can adapt to my students interests and needs. I am advanced in oils, acrylics, watercolors, pastel and have even dabbled in digital art and character design. My personal work involves representational realism in portraiture and still life, but I absolutely welcome all subjects. I even love to paint outdoors with my students!

About Terra
Terra Novak was born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada. She has pursued a love of drawing and painting from a very young age. Terra was greatly influenced in fine arts by her mother Annette Novak, who studied at Columbus College of Art and Design. The classical styles of art have always been compelling to Terra and inspired her to further pursue studies in fine art at Laguna College of Art & Design in Laguna Beach, California.
Terra is a contemporary realist painter with an emphasis in portraiture. Though experienced in various mediums, she has found a love for painting in oil. She strives to create a connection with the viewer through portraiture. By capturing the sitter in a natural setting, she is able to communicate their true character and spirit in her work. She pays careful attention to composition and lighting as they are sp
ecific to each individual painting.
