Acrylic Painting 101

"Still life is the key that unlocks the secrets to great
painting. When painted with extraordinary perception
and ability, objects have the potential to allegorically
represent the full range of the human condition." Nelson Shanks

This still-life lessons will emphasize finding the rhythm in painting and learning when to make the shifts between balancing composition, drawing and color within a painting.

The workshop will commence from setting up a still-life and working out a composition with thumbnail sketches, then developing a color study, and then an open grisaille, the actual painting, working out the drawing issues, color development, keeping paint layers thin and even, and finding the areas where there would be more build-up of impasto and texture, and finally the last touch: removing what is not needed, and adding finishing details.

About Marina

As a child of five years old I was brought by my mom to Gulyaev’s Art Studio and this famous Ukrainian artist involved me in the marvelous world of fine art.

In high-school, I participated in a federally-funded program for the Gifted and Talented in Visual Art. After graduation I won a huge competition and was admitted as a student of the Architectural department of the Kiev Architectural Civil University. In 2001, I become a student, hand-selected by the director of extraordinary Master degree program of Visual Communication, offered by Syracuse University (Syracuse, NY). In master classes, we learned from each other and worked with the best illustrators: Murray Tinkelman and Cris Payne, Dave Passalaqua and Sano Kazu (Kazuhini), Bunny (Alice) Carter and Bob d’Sey, I love to learn new skills and keep learning new styles and techniques

all the time. This love has inspired my beloved students to do the same.

I've known Marina for a very long time and while I haven't taken any classes yet, I most definitely would recommend her to anyone who's looking for a good art teacher. She is a very talented artist and has a rare ability to inspire people to be creative. Her students' paintings are awesome and always make me smile looking at them.

Private Acrylic Painting Teacher

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.

Acrylic painting lessons will be assessed based on the individual's current abilities and their goals.

Course include some materials

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. Art is very therapeutic.


I've taught and currently consult with former and current Baltimore School for the Arts visual arts students. For more information, website at jfa-studios.com.

I took painting lessons about 10 years ago and haven’t done anything since. I brought a 1/2 finished painting. Maggie was great helping me set up and seeing where I was and what I remembered. Then showed me some techniques to help get me going. I’m looking forward to our next lesson.

Maggie is an exceptional teacher who has her classroom management skills down to a tee. It’s amazing to watch her command a classroom full of children while remaining sweet and never losing her cool. She was a great mentor and I learned a lot about art education from her!

You can expect from my class passion and soul I’m just an artistic being and it shows in every form of my being this all started with nail designs a very small canvas but I figure why not expand that canvas and actually paint express myself. This will be a unique experience for the both of us. Prepare to paint and vibe like you never have before. LETS PAINT!!!!

It was a real pleasure to do a Month long bachata classes with Kimmy. It was a worthwhile time investment. Kimmy is very passionate about dancing and teaching. I am grateful for the new dance skills and confidence she helped me gain!

Jean
I'm not naturally coordinated in dancing much less for paired dancing, for that reason I was apprehensive and anxious about bachata dance lessons with kimmy. At the end of the first lesson I left feeling having learnt new moves and confident about using them. Kimmy is skilled and knowledgeable about teaching dance because the pace is not rushed, she provides appropriate cues and thoughtful commendations!

Kamesh M.
I highly recommend Kimmy! She is a great teacher; she was patient, understanding, and comes prepared. I completed my first dance sessions with Kimmy and came out with a better understanding of how to dance. She instills confidence with her teaching and cares that her student gets the most out of every class.

Students can expect to focus on learning a good foundation. I am familiar with several different approaches when working with acrylic paints. They include but are not limited to; direct painting, graphic approach, building up of layers using glazes and dry brushing. I also sensitive to the surfaces acrylic is used on; paper, canvas, fabric, metal and wood are just a few.

About Sandy

I believe in the power of art to change lives. I have been working as a professional artist for several decades and I love what I do. My work ranges from murals to intimate portraiture. My resume includes National Endowment for the Arts funded public art projects, solo exhibitions and museum shows. My drawings, paintings and mixed media works are found in both private and corporate collections.

I enjoy how the act of art-making improves lives. If a certain subject matter moves you, then we will begin there. I emphasize craftsmanship and solid technique. My work leans towards realism. If you are interested in learning anatomy for artists, still life, landscape and generally working from life, then I would be a good fit.

My lessons take place in my studio. I have been teaching for over a decade and enjoy watching my students develo

p. Some of my best moments have been helping students build successful portfolios for entry into higher education.
I look forward to meeting you and seeing your work!

Sandy was amazing! It usually takes my Rocky a while to warm up to new people but he took to Sandy immediately. Rocky was asking when he can have her back as soon as she left.

My lessons are unique because I bring with me the experience of over 10 years as a professional visual artist, and the skill of an artist who has been collected/ has exhibited in four countries across the world!

I paint portraits in photographic realism (a.k.a. at first glance I can be mistaken as a photograph). I would love to instruct you how to paint in my style and teach you some of the tricks of the trade!

My first solo gallery art exhibit was in Brooklyn, NYC in 2015. Notable collectors of my artwork include acclaimed actress Taraji P. Henson.

Depending on level we start with the basics and work our way up. There are NO mistakes in painting and I have 15 years experience, so I'm very patient. We work through what the student wants to achieve and go from there. I specialize in abstract and fluid painting.

About Angela

Hi and HELLO!! Wanna learn how to take chances and reach your creative side? Then I'm the one for you! I specialize in abstract art, especially fluid painting, and have taught all ages. I have also used painting as therapy for children with emotional issues. I will use the skills you already posses and then fine tune or teach you new ones. Mistakes have made some of the most colorful and expressive pieces, so there is no pressure to be perfect.

"She is the best teacher I have found in my 72 years on earth"
Derek
"I had three other painting instructors before I came upon Megan's class and I will say she is the best painting teacher I have had and that does not come
easy because I am a professional sculptor that has taught and taken many classes in the art field. Simply put Megan is at the top of her game and her style of teaching is one that most anybody will benefit from her classes."

"Isabela is great. As a student, I was challenged by this first lesson. She used great tools for the lesson such as cotton balls and q-tips. It was great n
ot to be asked to buy new brushes or special paint. Be aware that she is a gentle person, but she works fast. No paint is going to dry on her canvas before she is done.!"

"I had the crazy idea of gifting to the girl I like a painting of her favorite flower. She lives in Shanghai and I was flying to over from New York. The pr
oblem was that I did not know how to paint. Because I had been so busy with work, I waited until last week before my flight to take lessons. Guiseppe guided me on how to approach my project and how to mix colors. Could not have done it without his instruction. Thank you."
