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.

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!

Are you interested in learning how to paint people? I'm a world renowned oil painter willing to share my valuable experience and vast knowledge with eager students of all levels and ages. 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.

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.

My daughter had her first drawing lesson today. Elissa was great - she was very kind and patient. In a quick half hour, she was able to draw a hand, with lots of detail and shading and taught her all about drawing pencils. We will be back!

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.

In my classes I emphasize two things: creating a new way of seeing, and practicing accuracy in what you see. We move through exercises that develop creativity and work through the fundamental technical components of making a drawing or a painting. Each class builds upon the tools we've developed from the last so students come away with a comprehensive understanding of art making, rather than a step-by-step formula. We work together to not only increase technical proficiency and achieve specific goals, but to develop the confidence to make art anywhere the mood strikes, whether it be painting at your kitchen table or sketching in a coffee shop or a hotel balcony.

About Kelsey
I've currently relocated from Brooklyn to LA, where I have a studio and maintain an active painting practice. In New York, as an art instructor I taught drawing, color theory, and painting as a guest lecturer at Pratt Institute, to professors looking to expand their knowledge base at NYU and Yale; former affiliates of The Cloisters; and small-scale private lessons at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden, and, of course, my favorite way to teach: one-on-one private lessons.

My current body of work is concerned with a female character that inhabits worlds populated by plant life. I was most recently represented by Christopher Stout Gallery New York (2015-17), and have exhibited in New York, Germany, Miami, Toronto, and Montreal. I was awarded residencies at the Centre Pompadour (France); Emerson Landing, Eastside International, Starry Night (USA
); and CanSerrat (Spain). Publications featuring my work include: Brooklyn Magazine, Whitehot Magazine, NYC-ARTS, Posture Magazine, Flavorwire, Lost at E-Minor, Lip Magazine, Tjen Folket, and the Globe and Mail. My next solo exhibition is in the Spring of 2018 in New York.

Miami Beach, FL

Hello, I'm Carlos Bruscianelli, Venezuelan hyper-realistic artist. I have 14 years of experience in the use of the technique of oil on canvas, I was trained in the Tessari-Rizzo Museum (Caracas - Venezuela), I have been a finalist in the year 2016 and 2017 in the annual Salon of the Art Renewal Center Salon, in the Art Revolution Taipei 2015, I am represented by galleries from USA, Venezuela, Costa Rica. My goal is to teach the basic techniques of realistic painting to all those interested. It is only necessary to have the willingness to learn, it is not necessary any previous knowledge or skill.

I do not teach abstract art! It is appropriate that you look on the internet for what kind of works I paint and evaluate if I am the right teacher for you. My goal is that they learn to draw and paint correctly with the traditional techniques used by the great masters.

About Carlos
Almost all my work is inspired by Contemporary Realism; Heavily influenced by classical realism and hyperrealism. My favorite technique is the oil on canvas, the genre that I practice most often is the Still Life, because of its infinite compositional and pictorial possibilities. As for my paintings, it is common for me to use elements that go unnoticed, some marbles, a piece of Kraft paper, glass goblets, a Rubik's cube, seemingly insignificant but chromatically interesting pieces of wood and metal with organic textures or created by the human being, who pose a challenge to be accurately represented for any painter. Currently my work focuses on the main elements of the composition, accompanied by neutral backgrounds, with the aim of the viewer fix their eyes on these pieces. My goal, like that of every painter of the realist genre, is to
follow the long road of technical perfection, this is certainly a utopian goal and may sound like something very pretentious, but, constantly improving in every aspect of life is not a Bad habit, although I have many defects, being conformist is not one of them.

Biography.
Carlos Bruscianelli is a Realist painter born in Caracas, Venezuela, in 1980. Since 2000, he began studies in Civil Engineering at the Central University of Venezuela, but his artistic interest induces him to take classes in realistic painting at the Museo Tessari - Rizzo, where he specializes in the techniques of oil painting on canvas and soft pastel. Finally, Carlos Bruscianelli suspended his engineering studies dedicating himself completely to his artistic production.

At the Tessari - Rizzo Museum he began his training as an artist in 2004 and culminates in 2011, during that period, he participates in the annual Salon in multiple opportunities, obtaining two honorable mentions. Simultaneously he participated in the annual hall of Faber Castel, being finalist in four consecutive opportunities and obtaining two honorable mentions, also in the Salon Juan Lovera he manages to be finalist in 2012.

In 2008, for the first time, he exhibited his work at the prestigious Dimaca Gallery, then at the renowned LPG Gallery in his hometown. Starting in 2014 he began the process of internationalization of his work, specifically in the cities of Miami and New York.
