Students are responsible for purchasing their materials.

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

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.

Sharron is fabulous! My daughter enjoys each lesson that she has with Ms. sharron. She is very personable and is able to adapt her lessons to match the stlye of drawing the student is looking for.

The lessons fees are very reasonable and Sharron is very flexible when it comes to scheduling.

Overall, definitely worth it. We will be continuing with Ms. Sharron for quite a while.

OIL PAINTING LESSONS

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.

- Holbein Duo Aqua Water Soluble Oil paints [brand]

1. 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!!!

"Having Mr. Ohasi as an Instructor has been one of the most valuable and enjoyable things I've done in life. It sounds a bit cliche, but in all honesty, I've learned more about myself in the time I've worked with him than I've done in a long while.

He not only helped me understand how to build my skills, but also that its okay to be an individual. At the same time he taught me how art centers around community and helping each other develop into people who can help others. He helped me to put my thoughts/ dreams on canvas and helped me make them real. I truly enjoy his classes!"

"I was a beginner and really excited to learn as much as I could about painting. Eileen started me with the very basics of setting up a palette, then we moved on to monochrome paintings, and then paintings with a full palette. She taught me the process of making a painting step by step was what I really wanted to learn. Her teaching style was a fit for me because she is both patient and skillful. She helped to bring out the artist in me. I am so grateful for what I learned and have taken that knowledge and continue to grow as an artist in my spare time. What also love is that Eileen has made herself available right me and I plan to take more lessons with her soon!"
