I've been instructing painters for several years both beginners and experienced. I love to see people get creative and I can help you too in a laid back format. I am an expert artist/painter with artwork all over the world. If you're new to painting, as long you have a little artistic talent (even if undiscovered) I can teach you to paint. Whether you want to learn just for fun or plan to go to design school, I can teach brush techniques and various subject matters - Abstract, impressionist, still life, portrait (intermediate only) and landscapes/seascapes and even human figures. If you'd like to learn to create digital paintings or traditional paintings, I can teach either.
I can help you get started or pick up where you left off. I prefer acrylics or oil paints.
I love art and I am passionate about making things beautiful. That spills over into Graphic design, Painting and more: I have 20+ years as a graphic designer, photographer 10+ years, artist/painter. I have been instructing for over 6 years. All of my artistic positions led me to run a print shop for several years so I know what you need to prep files for printing, photography, page layout, web and much more so that your files meet industry standards. If your a fast learner, I can go at a faster pace, if you need more time, I am fine with that too. My goal is for you to learn well, advance and put the skills I teach you to use. Then we will layer that info and move on. I'll incorporate reviewing what we worked on before in the future lessons. I want you to be able to put to practice what I teach you so that you can successfully manage on
your own in that area.
I love being outside, I love the water and get inspired by nature. I am not a camping type person but could sleep outside nightly (on a screened in porch, LOL). I love to enjoy life and want you to enjoy learning something new as well.
Nicole professionally layed out, designed, and printed the obituary of my husband using Adobe Photoshop. Her helpful, yet sensitive suggestions regarding picture arrangements on the pages of the obituary were appreciated. She was timely and easy to work with. I highly recommend her as an instructor.
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!
Whether you are wanting to learn how to paint using acrylic paints because it is something you have always wanted to learn or you are looking to learn new techniques, I am here to guide you! Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. Not only will you be painting in no time, but you will be building a strong foundation of color theory, drawing techniques, hand sight coordination techniques, and more. I have been painting for over fifthteen years in a variety of scales including large murals to small canvases. I am as eager to share basic to advance techniques as you are to learn. Self expression and painting techniques are a tool nobody can take from you once you have learned and embraced the art of painting. I have a degree in Art Practice from UC Berkeley and have taught 2nd grade students and adults as well. Let's get painting!
I am a professional working artist and I am also a site coordinator for an Expanded Learning program here in Riverside. I obtained a degree in Art Practice from UC Berkeley where I specialized in multimedia installations that included large scale paintings, sculptures, and original music/audio. Due to the versatility in my own work from large to very small scale paintings I have acquired techniques and skills for every scale in between. I am a strong believer in self expression and visual literacy which gets stronger with the formulation of concepts one builds through inspiration for each painting. I enjoy teaching and learning what my students' interests are and what motivates them. I can help you learn specific skills for abstract paintings to detailed portraits. Through research I have also learned that individua
ls benefit greatly from creative freedom thus performing better in other academic subjects, learning healthy ways of expression, and mentally feel fulfilled through the therapeutic effects of painting. If you are looking to work with someone who loves what they do, who is patient, motivational, and can teach you basic to advanced skills in painting, drawing, music, and Spanish send me a message and we can begin your learning journey!
The first lesson went very well with my daughter. Belinda was methodical in her teaching and approached the lesson with my daughter’s interest in mind. During the lesson, Belinda was able to actively engage my daughter the whole time, and more importantly, her teaching revived my daughter’s interest in drawing. She has already devised future plans to have my daughter practice sketching noses, eyes, and ears so that my daughter may draw the human face later with more realistic details.

Dedicated art professional with 18 years of experience in creating artwork utilizing various medias. In my early years I worked as an outsider artist giving watercolor lessons for Susan Edwards of the artist place called "The Art Attack in Sycamore Illinois. After some years of painting and displaying my work at outdoor art shows and inside some stores i went to Northern Illinois University and obtained my Bachelor of Fine Art in painting. I have joined art leagues and art guilds near where I live. I recommend the Kishwaukee Valley Art League and the Rockford Art guild. There i learned how to reach children and adults on how to get interested in painting. Strong competency in teaching and leading aspiring artists in group or individualized settings. In order to become a better artist you learn by drawing in a sketchbook from photos i
will assign every two weeks. If you think they are good then you will redraw them in a journal. We will critique them by email and make wonderful discoveries on how you are getting very good at becoming an artist.
Inside my art studio I have had artists stick to my belief that a sketchbook and a journal with pencils is the best way to improve.
Happy Drawing and remember my favorite words "Just Paint"!
David is an excellent artist who has years of experience in teaching art. I have been a student for 3 years and I have come so far as an artist. David has taught me how to see the world in a different light. I have and would recommend anybody who has an interest in art to take lessons from David. He is able to take anybody with the passion to become the artist they strive to be. He is an amazing teacher!

David worked hard to teach my Grandson the fundamentals of drawing and painting. David made the lessons fun and interesting!
Painting is about so much more than applying pigment and oil or water. I can teach how to see, how to understand color theory/relationships in the context of paint, and eventually, how to develop, understand, indulge, and challenge your own tendencies as a visual maker.
Since I have actually set up a separate subject for painting with oils, these prices will be applicable to painting with acrylics/other. Not that I would be excluding pertinent information in one of these classes versus an oil painting class (priced slightly higher), but because teaching painting generally starts with a water-based medium. It tends to be less messy, both literally and figuratively :) Basically, in these classes, I would teach about basic tenets of learning to paint. In terms of technical specifics we won't actually work with oils, but I am glad to talk about them and how they contrast water-based paints. I suppose that is my hesitation for labeling this as acrylic-specific. I am cool talking shop ...
I am a recent college graduate with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. My main areas of concentration are drawing and painting, but I am also trained in printmaking, photography, sculpture, etc. Being an artist means being a lot of things. You are not someone with just a hobby; you are an engineer, mathematician, planner, risk taker, designer, scientist. The list goes on. I dedicate my life to problem-solving. This is what art is. I would love to share my knowledge and be able to continue to support my creative life by supporting the drive for success in others.
I have really no age limit in terms of students. If you are a parent looking for a teacher for a child/ren, that's great, we could have some fun constructing and working on anything from still lifes of their favorite toys to acrylic paintings that touch on color relationships. If you you
rself are looking to strengthen your drawing from nature or learn how to build a realistic self-portrait, that's great too. I'm willing and happy to do anything from spending time sculpting with a senior citizen to discussing and working on conceptual painting with a student in need of more outside fuel and support for their creative fire. I believe that teaching to think like an artist is just as important as teaching technical ability. I've become adept at both of these skills in my four years at the University of Dayton, and I am so excited to share with and learn from you in return!
Really great with my daughter and going to be signing up for more!

My daughter and I took drawing lessons with Mary, and it was a great experience. She adapted her plan to what we wanted to learn and guided us through the creative process. Mary was patient and gave great constructive feedback. I would recommend her to everyone!
Want to learn to paint or draw your favorite scene or photo you took on your last vacation? Interested in learning how to creatively express your own artistic development through your favorite medium? I have been a practicing artist for 20+ years and I love seeing others progress with mediums they are personally interested in. Painting, drawing, photography and ceramic sculpture have been large focuses of my artistic career; coupling that with my love to educate others I'd enjoy the opportunity to talk to see if I could invest my time teaching you some of the skills and techniques I have learned from all around the world.
I am an experienced artist that has traveled the world, learned from many teachers, observed, utilized tested techniques and have a mentality that I can always be learning. I studied art a little more than average in high school, but graduated with honors in college with several classes of studio level ceramics. During which time I began teaching other students. I loved being able to help those who were in the studio with me.
My love for art began when I was young and have always been pushing the envelope of my skills to get better, and be able to understand more complex principles of art.
As I matured in my artistry I began to develop my own styles from the many teachers I encountered and produced my own pieces that ranged a variety of genres: watercolor, acrylic, drawing, sketching, charcoal drawing, oil pastels, markers, pens, shar
pie temporary tattoos, poetry, wire sculpture, ceramic sculpture, pottery wheel, photography, plant design, bonsai, and most recently I have developed as an oil painter.
With so many avenues I have ventured down, I am thankful that I have learned to take creativity into everything I do. This especially came to true when I began to travel the world. From Europe to Asia, I have learned from different cultures and have taken that opportunity to reflect on and venture back to teach you some of my favorite techniques that I have had the privilege to learn.
Best painter in the west!!! Love this man mucho, definitely recommend!

What a pleasure it was having Sheldon come in and teach our youth! We planned a night of creativity for our youth at our church and Sheldon kindly volunteered and provided materials for our teens to have an awesome experience. He gave expert advise and technique but also embraced everyone creative side. Hope to have another night with Sheldon as our teacher. Super fun night!!
August 24, 2019
Sheldon was highly recommended and I now see why! He came to our church’s youth night to teach us all about watercolor painting. He was patient, engaging, prepared, professional and so kind! We feel so blessed to have had him as a guest artist and look forward to having him back soon!
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.

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.
Hello! My name is Adam and I've spent the last decade of my life focused entirely on the disciplines of drawing and painting. As an undergraduate student, I attended Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts where I learned the foundational skills and traditions of drawing and painting. For my Masters of Fine Arts, I attended the University of Minnesota where I honed my skills, developed a personal body of work, and was introduced to teaching.
I have since taught at the University of Minnesota and tutored drawing and painting in the Twin Cities area.
In my classes, you will learn to train your eye and handle to follow the fundamental principles of drawing and painting that apply across disciplines. You will develop the confidence and understanding of these basic principles necessary to tackle any project.
Seven years of art school focused specifically on drawing and painting.
Taught drawing at the University of Minnesota and tutored privately in the Twin Cities area.
"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."

"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 pa

every class combined with an enjoyable exercise/piece."
