The most awesome 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. The students main objective is to learn, by painting what the individual wishes to paint (personal projects that sparks and continues the creativity within). Note: For virtual sessions, the student will need to create a conducive workspace that will allow teacher/student viewing of art work in progress. The student will need a workspace with lots of light. Often, I will ask to see the students progress, so that I may be able critique and give advise on their work in progress. For short-term sessions (virtual or in-person), the teacher and student will collaborate and determine how the student will get the most out of their session.

Become the artist you always wanted to be! Whether you are an aspiring artist, a total beginner, a teen building a competitive portfolio, or someone who's always wanted to learn to paint, I will help you develop your technical skills and find your voice as an artist! In our lessons, you will paint from life, exploring composition, concept, and mood through creative assignments. You will train your eye as you paint still lifes, landscapes, portraits, figures, abstractions, and beyond! I will show you examples of historical and contemporary painting as we practice a range of techniques. You will gain confidence through practice and experimentation as you work towards developing your own style as an artist! And most importantly, you’ll have fun! I can’t wait to work with you! *Due to Covid-19 I am temporarily not offering at-home travel lessons. All lessons will be online only until further notice.
