As my student you will learn very important basic to intermediate foundation knowledge of the painting process. This involves Color theory, canvas preparations (wood, Canvas and other substrate choices), Brush selections, Mediums and thinning, Paint storage and reusing. We will work on transferring ideas from still life or sketch to canvas. We will cover brush stroke effects, blending, highlighting and work processes for an efficient and most importantly fun workflow.
Hello, my name is Joe. I am excited when I learn of new potential artists. My skills are well rounded and focused. I can teach you in many media applications and art forms. I am able to teach from basic drawing techniques to full Portrait art, Film & Digital Portrait / Fashion Photography and Image Retouching/ Manipulation. My forte' are Drawings, Acrylic Paintings, Charcoal Drawings, Photography and Digital image manipulation. I have been published in Art and Fashion magazines for my art. My goal is to teach you how to see the world around us as a canvas and cull your visions from it and recreate it to your desires. My goal is to have you gain a deep understanding of yourself as an artist and how to translate that onto/into your media of choice.
Explained what I needed to know very nicely and kept his teaching at a level very suitable for my current skill level. Will work a bit on the stuff we went through and do another follow-up lesson. Thanks

Guiseppe is great! He explained basic techniques very well and make sure I understand all before we move on the next.
I am a fine artist, and I am an art lover! I have taught art to kids and adults of all levels, and I have studied art for many years. I love drawing and painting, going to museums, talking about art, and participating in group art shows. I draw and paint from life every day. I can help you to make your drawings more life-like, improve your color sense, or paint a scene that you picture in your imagination.
I am an art lover. I paint and like to illustrate books for my niece and nephews. I love teaching all ages, especially kids. I used to be a teaching assistant for undergraduate-level art students. Recently, I have been teaching art classes and in-studio lessons with grade school aged kids. I am especially good at guiding people through drawing and painting from life. I have lots of examples of my art I will provide. I have also studied art theory and history, and I am a good writer. I'm open to doing different sorts of lessons, depending on what your learning style is. I can guide you in a step-by-step process with a live demonstration, or I can look at your artwork and critique it for you. If you are just starting out as an artist, I can give you an introduction to the medium you're going to be working with. Also, I can suggest all k
inds of artists for you to look at and exercises for you to try.
I just completed my first lesson with Tabitha. I highly recommend her to anyone that wants to learn how to paint or to gain a better understanding of painting or drawing. Tabitha is an experienced professional with a wealth of knowledge. Her teaching style is excellent, she has a great, friendly personality & is super encouraging. I learned a lot during my first lesson & I can't wait until my next one.!
Art is fun at all ages and I have experience teaching four to fifty-year-olds! My high school art students have won awards at the local, regional, and national levels mostly for drawings and paintings. We even made a couple community murals before I moved away from Houston, TX. Please see my online portfolio and student artwork at www.shinestudioshouston.com.
I'm a fine and digital artist and have been teaching art for over 9 years experience. Both my undergraduate and graduate degrees are in art and art history. I studied at The School of Visual Arts in NYC. My goal is to mentor students in the creation of visual arts to develop their creative skills and techniques. I believe art is an extremely important form of communication and can also be a healing therapy.
I have taught acrylic painting to large groups, and can walk you through a painting in a similar fashion!
I am a professional freelance artist, and owner of Leola Studios. I have been doing custom artwork for over 15 years, and have several contract jobs with businesses on my resume. I have an Associates Degree in Fine Arts/Animation from Academy of Art University.
I specialize in photo realism, and 90% of the private commissions I get are portraits. However, I work in a broad range of styles and mediums, from line work to abstract to sketch, with charcoal to paint to clay. I love expanding my knowledge and trying new things, but above all I love creating!! I feel that imagination and expression through art/music/literature are crucial to a person's development, and this is something I pass on to my daughters, and frequently fundraise for, in an attempt to keep art programs in our schools.
I love meeting new people and sharing my knowledg
e, so after having so many people ask me to show them how to draw, I began teaching. I've taught one on one, and classes large in size. I have also taught young children, up to age 98! I am very patient and don't mind a slew of questions! I want to help students become the best at their craft.
Art is my passion and so important in our world, with proven benefits! I'd like to think with teaching, I'm helping to keep it alive, even if just in my small way.
The lesson was very enjoyable and effective. Amber made me feel relaxed, yet totally engaged. I gained confidence after completing a landscape sketch during my first class.

My granddaughter has just finished her first drawing class with Amber. She really enjoyed it and is excited to take her second class. My granddaughter is very shy and soft spoken Amber was wonderful with her.

Amber and my son Peter just had their first lesson and he drew an AMAZING bird. She was patient and handled a 9 year old easily. Can't wait for more lessons. So fun!
Do you feel you cannot create? And want to paint? Contact me and we can start from the basics...supplies, colors, subject, and technique. We would start small. In several lessons have one or many paintings done. One lesson might be a chance to ask questions about supplies you already own...as a gift...or sitting around for years. The student walks away with skills and feeling of confidence to proceed on ones own...well worth the effort. Sincerely, Janet

Hello there. My experience with the QiGong is one of beginning to pass on the great training I have had. Not only in the QiGong. It is the strength and beauty of movement in other martial arts, yoga, nature hikes.
*Please note...I am in the process of getting another video intro by me. Signing up for a series of lessons though will most likely answer all questions though. Healing movement...questions answered at a rate of a couple a week...additional material provided if you you would like.
My background with the arts, holistic practitioning, home education based on waldorf model, and even clothing design and making enhance the interaction we have.
Bringing forth from past experiences to you. This movement helps with weight i
ssues, actively helps eliminate back issues, and can help to eliminate other physical issues.
I look forward to working with you. In a way that you can express to me as well any goals further than an authentic QiGong practice to start.
I love teaching. I have more than 10 years of experience in teaching drawing and painting in university and college. I cover realistic style to abstract art with watercolor, oil, or acrylic. Also, you will learn a variety of techniques like glazing, impasto, and alla prima. subject matter can start with still life and continue architecture, landscape, and figurative art.
My name is Roya. I am a professional artist and educator, and I’m a professor in painting and drawing.It would be my pleasure to teach you painting or drawing. Over the last 10 years, I have taught painting and drawing, including figure drawing and painting courses in universities and colleges.
I’m using 2 different teaching strategy based on my students interest.
In the first plan, I start to teach from basic to advanced technique; my goal at the beginning stage is to provide students with enough skills and technique that they can skillfully begin making art from 3- dimensional sources, not just copying from other arts.
In the second path, I start teaching any subject or technique that my student prefer like pastel landscape or oil painting portrait.
I teach a variety of technique, medium and styles from realistic to abstract
Roya is a wonderfully energetic, hands on art teacher, who has moved my oil painting from mundane to lively & exciting. My lessons with Roya are such a pleasure. The lessons are geared toward helping me grow in areas I expressed a need for, as well as filling in weaknesses which her expertise recognizes need working on.

Great teacher!! She knows what she's talking about and teaches at your own pace.
I have been a professional oil painter for 36 years and have taught oil and acrylic painting classes fro over a decade. I teach a casual, fun but serious style class. My goal is to teach the basics of creating a simple strong painting in a semi realistic style. However, my goal is to allow the student to develop their own individual style. Understanding the creative process is also key to making good art.
My name is Dan. The only thing that I love more than painting is teaching students how to paint. I call my teaching method, "serious play". In other words, I want the students to learn something of value during each class, but also to enjoy the creative process that is key to making a successful painting.
Keep the brushes wet, make every stroke count! Very patient - you’ve just got to do it. Been invaluable in guiding the composition - he can’t hold the brush for you! For a “left brained” person like myself I need to get the “slap”!😄

Terrible! Missed an appointment, limited knowledge, poor teaching skills. Would avoid..
Whatever your skill level, however fast or slow you want to go, I want to help you to become a better artist and enjoy it while you’re learning! What we cover in your lesson will be determined by your level of expertise. If you are just starting out with oils, we will discuss some important things to understand about the colors, mediums, how to set up your palette and some different ways of applying paint, etc. If you already have some experience with oil painting, we will pick up with whatever areas you would like to improve on. If you are interested in painting the human figure or portraits in particular, we can discuss some important ways to go about painting flesh tones. There are also some little known tips I want to tell you about that will be useful to artists of any skill level!
I will share with you any suggestions that I have for technique or different ways of approaching your painting that may help you with whatever areas you’re struggling with. We can focus on how to ...
I want to help you make huge leaps in your skills to become a better artist than you even thought was possible! Whatever you want to create, you can do it! Private lessons can save a lot of time and keep you on the right path for your personal individual needs, where ever you are on your way to becoming Leonardo (not DiCaprio, the other one). Want to learn how to draw lifelike faces? Paint realistic still life? Improve your proportions with the human figure? Master color with landscapes? I have experience doing all of these things and I want to share some of the best methods to go about them with you.
I’ve been painting with oils for almost three decades, and drawing for as long as I can remember. I’ve been a full time fine artist for over a decade now, and have been doing guest demos, private and group lessons for many years, for va
rious subject matter and age groups.
After graduating from Tyler School of Art at Temple University with a major in Painting, I had jobs making signs by hand, doing T-shirt designs, and in a graphic design studio with clients like M&M Mars, and Revlon. As a freelance artist, I did logos, movie poster illustration, album art and packaging design. I even scored and created sound effects for some short films! Yes, I play keyboard as well.
For my fine art, I’ve worked in many different mediums including watercolor, acrylics, digital, ceramics, sculpture, metal casting and photography. But painting with oils and drawing are my most preferred ways of creating (drawing is the basis for painting). I’ve painted and drawn many different kinds of subjects, but the figure is my favorite. I've worked from photo reference and from life (something right in front of me) as well as from my imagination; the range of styles that I have used have gone from photorealism all the way to cartoons. I am also proficient in Photoshop, which I currently use often to create composite images as reference for my paintings. My paintings have been displayed in many shows across the country, and have sold internationally.
There are all kinds of different ways to approach drawing or painting the same thing. You should use the techniques that feel most natural and work best for you. I will customize your lesson to the subject, medium and speed that you prefer, so that as long as you've got the necessary fundamentals taken care of, you can make strides in whatever area you want. I hope that you will sign up for a lesson with me so I can show you how! If you're not sure where to start, just send me a message and we'll figure it out!
"Eileen has been great to work with online, therecreally are no painting teachers in my area who have the technical knowledge to help me out so I was reall
y stuck. We only started recently but I’m learning so much faster now."
"Megan was great . We did a "group " lesson with my 90 year old mother who has painted her whole life, but has not in the past 5 or so years along with my
7 year old daughter who loves art. A great experience for granddaughter and grandmother to bond."
"Maggie is a talented instructor. Helped me tremendously with oil paint color mixing and matching."
"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 mo
ved 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!"
"Isabela is a great teacher who truly has a passion for art. She took the time to share helpful tips and stories of her own experiences with our group of
twelve, and did so in a fun and energetic manner. She managed to keep us all engaged and was a delight to have in our office. I would highly recommend Isabela!"
"Took my daughter to Mrs Deepali for our first class in Painting and Drawing, with curiosity to see how she'd teach a 9 year old. Was baffled to see teh re
My daughter has started recurring lessons with this teacher.
I like her patience, and her result oriented skills."
"Amber taught me how to do a painting of a snow man so I can give to my mom for Christmas and she did a wonderful job teaching to where I can understand. A
nd it turned out great."
"I've known Marina for a very long time and while I haven't taken any classes yet, I most definitely would recommend her to anyone who's looking for a good
art teacher. She is a very talented artist and has a rare ability to inspire people to be creative. Her students' paintings are awesome and always make me smile looking at them."
"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 on
line 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."
