The footsteps of the path that lies before you are yours to follow until you can find your own path. So what are you waiting for ? Sign up your lesson today!
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.”

Abstract Painting uses a visual language of form, color and line to create a composition which may exist with a degree of independence from visual references in the world. Abstract art, non figurative art, nonobjective art, and nonrepresentational art are loosely related terms. They are similar, but perhaps not of identical meaning.
A Complete List of Painting Supplies that every Beginning Watercolor Painter needs
1. Favorite brands Daniel Smith Water-Soluble Oil Paints & Mediums, and Holbein Duo Aqua Water Soluble Oil
2. Proper Painting Brushes I‘d suggest six total in a range of sizes: two size 2 brushes, two size 6 brushes, and two size 12 brushes. One of each pair should be a flat brush (with a squared-off brush tip) and the other should be a filbert brush (with a slightly rounded tip).

I love Mayra. She taught me a lot more than I thought in just one class. I have a painting that I will hang on my wall. Never thought one class would do that. She has great personality and great skills.

Elena & Erik S.
Mayra was very helpful. She had a challenge with us because we we're weren't sure exactly what we wanted to learn. Mayra worked with us and demonstrated some new techniques and ideas based on where we already were as (very amateur) artists. She was helpful, very encouraging, and easy to work with. Thank you!

It was a great experience meeting Mayra! She's an excellent teacher, and is a very patient, nice person. I learned some interesting techniques from her, and enjoyed my lesson with Mayra very much!!!
Watercolor painting has a way of showing emotion and expression. I am a graduate of the Baltimore School for the Arts (BSA) majoring in visual artists and continued my studies at the Maryland Institute College of Art. In my spare time, I've taught for the last 15 years. I've tutored actual BSA students. I love painting. I love teaching art. It is an expression of an individual's personal journey.
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.
Watercolor painting lessons will be assessed based on the individual's current abilities and their goals.
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.
My watercolor technique involves using water brushes where the water is stored in the handle of the brush. They are easy to use, portable and easy to cleanup.
We are all artists-in-progress because, no matter how good we are, we can always get better!
I'm Mr. Joey and I love art and I love teaching art! I am a graduate of The Art Institute and an artist and animator that creates art in pencil, charcoal, pastel, watercolor, and digital mediums.
I recommend that classes are *at least* 1.5 hours (and I really recommend 2 hours!) because that's what's needed to critique homework assignments, warmup, and do the work for the class, and not be rushed.
Classes I teach are:
• Drawing Fundamentals • Advanced Drawing • People and Anatomy • Portrait Drawing • Cartoon Characters for Animation • Character Design • 2D Animation • Digital Painting in Photoshop • Digital Animation
Please view samples of my work and contact me with any questions you may hav
I look forward to helping you develop your art skills and express your creativity!
Explore the wonderful world of watercolor in my studio!
I am an artist and teacher with 15 years experience, trained in many artistic mediums teaching to both children and adults from a wide range of diverse backgrounds or experience levels.
Tell me what you want to learn to do, and I will customize your time in my art studio so that you can reach your artistic vision by growing your skills step by step.
I have a contagious enthusiasm and warmth and am interested in building relationships with students over time. My favorite thing in the world is to create a supportive environment where my students are excited to make art they love.
In addition to teaching lessons, I am a working artist, a school teacher, as well as a guest teaching artist with local organizations like camps, senior centers, and non-profits, etc.
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 a talented instructor. Helped me tremendously with oil paint color mixing and matching.

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!
Students will be learning everything from fundamentals of watercolor as well as mastering brushes used to create desired effects.
Hi everyone! My name is Tori and I am professional artist / illustrator from Brooklyn, New York. I attended Pratt Institute as an Illustration Major in the Communication Department.
Students can expect to improve week to week in their artistic abilities. I will offer insight and tips on how to draw more quickly and efficiently. Everyone starts off at a different pace, but progress is guaranteed!
I have taught art to a variety of ages from 5 up to adults.
Great teacher! Saw myself getting a lot better after each lesson
August 3, 2019
Great teacher! She was very patient with me and with every lesson, I saw myself improving. I only participated in group classes before and having a teacher tailor each lesson to my level made such a huge difference. She really knows how to break down complicated things to make them easier to draw.
I feel that my combined artistic skills and ability to have fun will make for a unique learning experience, with solid results as a goal.
I am an accomplished painter, illustrator, and graphic designer, specializing in figurative art. As an illustrator, some of my clients have been Perrier, Prentice-Hall publishing, United Airlines, Marlboro and Target.
I have a wide range of artistic interests and skills in both traditional and non-traditional media. I have been privileged to have been the art instructor for the Hoboken Homeless Shelter, and the Saturday U enrichment program for public school children at Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken. My Hoboken Children's Memorial Flag can be seen on permanent display at Hoboken City Hall. It was the first public 9/11 memorial in Hoboken.
My Greetings from Hoboken New Jersey merchandise is available online and at the Hoboken Historical Museum and other retail outlets in Hoboken.
I keep my skills sharp by working
indoors from life, outdoors from nature, copying old master and Impressionist paintings at the Brooklyn Museum of Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. I am featured in a recent book, Museum: Behind the Scenes at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, by Danny Danziger.
I have been trained in abstract, acrylic and watercolor painting on a collegiate level and I was the top of my class. I believe painting is ultimately an expression of what you are experiencing on the inside and I would love to help you unlock the inner creative inside you. That parterned with teaching you the techniques and skills of the trade will help you become a better painting.
I am a professional artist primarily in th medium of pen and ink on paper. I have certifications in painting sculpting, throwing and drawing. The last 7 years has been focused on pen and ink as well as acrylic painting.
I am knowledgeable not only of my particular style but also of art in general 2-D and 3-D expressions as well as abstract, realism and expressionism.
My students can expect guidance in techniques and tricks of the trade combined with exploration into their own specific style of art. Just as I have done. Using the discoveries of previous artists to explore the specific way you do art.
I have been expressing myself in some sort of art form for the last 7 years professionally and before that as an amateur and beginner. I have always been drawing but I went though a time when I was doing lots of three dimensional art wor
k and exploring different mediums in expressing my style.
"Absolute joy to learn from Lia. Very relaxed environment and enjoyed the class immensely. Highly recommend."
