I really enjoyed lessons with Emilie! She is well organized and has a clear lesson plan for each session, with follow up homework and exercises. I learned so much about technique and the "how to" of drawing. Everything she put together was appropriate for my level and included exercises that challenged me to improve. I could tell Emilie is well trained and skilled at drawing. She is also very nice and I felt relaxed and comfortable with her. Her studio is warm and inviting. Overall it was a great experience and I am looking forward to taking some additional lessons with Emilie!

So happy to have found Emilie! I work for a family with a four year old child who is extremely engaged in art and we wanted to find private lessons for her. Emilie has been extremely accommodating and very intentional in making sure we were ready for our first lesson. Will be scheduling more lessons and look forward to her being apart of my charges explorative learning!

Anastasia is a wonderful teacher—intelligent, kind and generous with her time and knowledge. She presents new information in the context of historical movements and expands the lessons into the bigger scope of major events and influences on painting. I would highly recommend taking classes from Anastasia!

Abstract art can be one of the most beautiful, and also one of the most intimidating to create. Don't be afraid! Abstract art is one of my personal favorites to create, and I will help show you how easy it can be once you know the basics. We'll go step by step through what makes a great abstract piece, and how you can get there. It takes some practice but before long you'll be making abstract pieces that are a joy to create. Let's get started!

About Nicole

I am a professional mixed media artist. My mediums include drawing (graphite, charcoal, pen, etc) acrylic paint, spray paint, oil paint, and more! I love teaching students who are excited to learn new things. I am a firm believer that anyone can make beautiful and unique art. Especially you!
