Students will identify a place that is special to them and represent the place and what makes it special through words and oil painting
“My students love this program! Truly, what an amazing gift this has been to our art community! Never have I felt so competent in incorporating art integration into my curriculum.”

About Kelvin
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.”

I had my first lesson with Kelvin and it was very good. Kelvin made me feel very comfortable and we focused on the various tones used in learning and speaking Mandarin. I look forward to my next class this coming weekend.

From basic beginner skills such as color mixing and showing basic brush strokes, to advanced technical skills using color for dynamic design. I have taught thousands of people from 5 year old complete beginners to advanced. I teach in a way that no one teaches. I actually show every brushstroke. You will start a painting and by the end will not only have a finished gorgeous painting that you will honestly be amazed that you did it, you will have many new skills to take to the next painting and be able to apply those skills forever.

About Lynn
Lynn B. attended four of the very best art colleges in the country With over 40 years experience in both painting and teaching art, she is well equipped to teach both any style and medium and to absolute beginners through advanced students.

Ms. Buettner has studied at several of the most prestigious art schools in the Northeast including: Rhode Island School of Design, The New York Art Students' League, the Paier College of Art in Connecticut, and the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston. Her work has been shown in galleries throughout the United States and Canada, and is in collections worldwide. Summering on the East Coast on Martha's Vineyard Island, Ms. Buettner's work quickly became known and collected by local residents and returning island guests. Most originals were sold while still on her easel.

To keep up with demand, sh
e created a complete product line including collector's limited edition prints, her signature greeting card with collectible art magnet, art magnets, post cards, photo magnet frames, calendars, notebooks, folders and photo albums.

The publishing company that licensed her designs flew her to China to do an art signing at the Canton World Trade Show.

Enthusiastically sharing her knowledge, she has taught all levels of art to both beginners and adults for the past thirty years. She created and taught a very successful after school art program for kids for over ten years as well. After devoting the last twenty years to painting scenes ranging from realistic to impressionistic, Ms. Buettner is venturing out with her accomplished techniques and abilities, into the exciting and unusual world of intuitive expression. Letting go of conscious thoughts, an exciting, creative and sensual world emerges to be shared with the viewer. This work has been coined Neo Biomorphic.

Her work has been used on many different commercial projects including the Nash Bridges TV Show and the TV movie Diary of a Mad Housewife.

Starting a very successful after school art program for grades 1-6, she has extensive experience in all age groups bringing the student from beginning drawing to the most advanced painting techniques that took over 40 years to acquire.

I like to take pride in making my students feel secure and knowing and seeing the improvement they make within each session. I will be handing out a materials list prior to our lessons. Most students see a huge leap in drawing within the the first lesson! Class starts out usually with me giving a 1 hour demonstration on what I expect them to do as I cover and explain my entire process and thought and calculations that goes into drawing and painting. For the rest of the class I will be besides the student as they work giving them one on one pointers and as much help and explanation as they need in order to improve. Students start out with learning how to look and draw what they observe accurately by first working on simple geometric shapes such as spheres, cubes. We then will move on to Cast studies and after a few months of studying we will start on figures and portraits.

About Kai Lun
Hi, there! My name is Kai, and I can't wait to meet you!
Spreading the joy of drawing and painting has always been a great pleasure of mines.

Being trained in China's most prestigious and renowned fine arts academy, CAFA (China Central Academy of Fine ArtsI) as well as studying in Tianjin Academy of Fine Arts, Shanghai Art and Design Academy, and Ruth Asawa School of the Arts, I offer art classes in traditional realistic painting and drawing techniques, both Online and in my studio I set up within my studio.

Students of all levels are welcome. From beginners who love art and drawing but who have not had formal training, to experienced artists who want to gain a more solid grasp of fundamental principles, historical training methods lead to significant skill development within a few months of teaching.

We are happy to have found Kai on TakeLessons. Kai works with our high school junior on her portfoilio and submissions for art competitions. The weekly online lessons involve setting goals, conceptualizing, live demonstrations and live coaching. We were initially worried about the effectiveness of online lessons but it has worked out perfectly so far in the second month of lessons. Our daughter has already shown improvement in her technique, and an enthusiasm for the lessons and for the pieces she’s working on with Kai.

Kai is an excellent teacher! I have been taking lessons with Kai for two months. Kai has a lot of unique drawing skills! I like how he encourages me to re-evaluate again and again, so I can practice my skills until I master them! The whole class process is fun and enjoyable. If you are looking for a patient, skillful teacher, you can't miss Kai!

West Linn, OR

I have been teaching professionally for five years with both small children and adults in many different platforms. My students can expect to develop skills of sketching in paint, rendering objects realistically, color theory, color mixing, texturing and blending, and building contrast. I work with you, where you're at, and develop my lesson plans custom to your individual needs. My students and I always have a blast and make the learning experience fun.

About Sondra
Hello future student :) My name is Sondra and I would love to help you achieve your painting goals. I have a wide range of skills, from abstraction to realism and many hues in between. I received my Bachelor's in Fine Arts from The Oregon College of Art and Craft, a school that gave me background in modern, conceptual art. I also learned and revered techniques from the old Masters, such as Rembrandt, who have a classic, timeless perspective on painting. I've heard it said that it takes 10,000 hours to become a pro, which is why I give my students a painting assignment from our very first lesson. I will get you started wherever you are in your level of experience. I'll help you learn to paint what you're looking at as well as develop your own sense of style when painting expressively. I have a great eye for color and mixing and my students
have felt this was a particular advantage of learning from me. I'd love to meet you and help you on your painting journey. So sign up with me today!

I have taught over 500 students how to paint! Each painting lesson is tailored to your interest and where you want to develop skill. My schooling background is in figure painting, modern painting techniques, color theory and composition. I have been trained by masterful painters from all over the world and look forward to sharing all that I have learned with you.

About Megan
*Online Lessons have special pricing - Please contact me about online lesson pricing *

I am drawn to the timelessness of the human figure as the focal point of a painting. I find people to be my biggest source of inspiration. This appreciation extends also to the students I am honored to teach. I never quite know where the art class will take us and what skills will be honed to match the inspiration the student has, but on many occasions we both are wonderfully surprised by the results. I design each lesson to inspire and encourage the student . The techniques will come with time but it takes inspiration to get there!

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.

I have taught students ranging in age from 4 years old to adults. I am ready to meet you where YOU are at in your artistic journey and help you reach your personal goals. I want you to enjoy your artistic experience and create art that is unique and special to you!

About Kristen
I am a professional art teacher, currently working on my 7th year of teaching. I graduated from Sam Houston State University with my Bachelor's Degree in Studio Art and Education.

I have taught private lessons, group lessons, and painting parties for people of all ages! I have taught several students with high functioning autism and other special needs. I believe that art is a subject where anyone can be successful when given the tools and techniques.
My main goal with any student I teach is for that student to enjoy their artistic experience and become the very best artist they can be! No two artists are the same, and I encourage my students to embrace their unique and individual talents.

I teach all ages and all skill levels, form age 2 to 92 years old and from beginners to advanced/professional. I teach oil, acrylic and watercolor painting.
The students are brought up in skill level to the point that they feel confident they can paint at the level they want to and can even make a career out of it!

About Linda J. W.

Close

Not only do I teach my students the good practices of using their art materials so their work will have longevity, but I teach them to have an artist observation skill, patience and to really "see". Also taught, in my painting classes, are the methods of classic oil painting from glazing to "a la prima" and for drawing, exploration of graphite, colored pencil, charcoal, pen and ink and perspective. While learning to paint or draw, art history can not be left out in a student's art education, so classes include art history as well as the use of materials.

About Linda J.
What can I say, I love art and teaching others to love it and get excited about what they can be proud of creating. Creating good art has no age limit and it is something you can do the rest of your life to express yourself. All a student needs is the desire to learn, good training and to learn to really see the world all around them. Most of us go about our daily routine, failing to see the wonders that are right in front of us. If something like an idea or a beautiful scene from nature catches your attention and your words can not express what you are seeing or feeling, painting and drawing can help you do this. In my private lessons or group classes, all you need is the desire to learn, the art materials, and leave your self criticism at the door. I teach students to create something they can be proud of, not to be critics. From th
e age of 5, I knew art was the field of study I would spend my life learning. I graduated with a Bachelor's in Science & Design, plus an art education certification from the University of Michigan and taught art in the Troy Public Schools, I have been teaching in my studio since then with private as well as group lessons of three to six students. I have also continued my art education as an apprentice along with a few others, to a local master of painting and sculpture. The learning should never stop!
