******* I to teach Water mixable oil only because of the toxicity of turpentine based thinners. It is a very effective medium.
"Paint, draw or play about something that is meaningful to you."I've been teaching art for 2 years and my students have gone on to portraiture. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to study the nature of the media you have chosen i.e. painting, charcoal, other media and as time goes on you'll be able to expand your media and move towards a style or create your own. I specialize in surrealism with my influences being Vincent Van Gogh, Dali, Frieda Kahlo, Magritte and many others. I can introduce media that is includes paint, lead, prismacolor, charcoal, ink and more.
I have also studied the history of art extensively and read biographies of many artists.

About Aleena
I've been teaching piano and art for 7 years and I've been associated with TakeLessons for 6 of those years in 2 different cities. I am able to travel during certain times and I also have studio and online availability. ***Although my training was in classical music, I currently compose and perform a variety of genres besides classical.

I get so much gratification teaching and music improves math and other cognitive skills. I'm an encouraging and flexible teacher because every student is different and requires their own focus and individualized lesson plan. My teaching style includes the classical method and basic to intermediate theory integrated with contemporary methods.

I also employ an enjoyable environment and open communication with parents/guardians and adult students.

****One of my students was a 16 years old virtuoso i
n classical guitar. He came to me because he never learned how to sight read. Within 6 months he was writing his own music and decided to change his specialty from guitar to piano.
*****Another one of my students was told he would never be able to "sight read" which is to read music from paper but he was reading music and within a few months he was writing it himself.

I look forward to helping you reach your goals! I encourage anyone who is interested in learning to begin lessons with the knowledge that they can eventually create any kind of art they desire.
I continue to perform and create which enables me to sharpen and maintain my skills.

I hope to have an opportunity to meet you soon and I encourage you to ask any questions you have!!!

*****I highly encourage scheduling only 30 minutes for children younger than 12 and beginners of other ages. Students are more likely to focus and enjoy their lessons when they are shorter in the beginning. They can always be extended later.

Dallas, TX
View Full Profile

I have been a professional painter artist and musician for 10 years. I received my BFA from SMU in Fine Art and Painting and have exhibited my work in galleries, shows, exhibitions and sold it at auction. My teachers have included Steve Wilder, Barnaby Fitzgerald, Bill Komodore, Massimo Lippi, Jay Sullivan, and others.

Plein Air, Still Life, and Figurative works are my specialties, but I have also studied the development of the abstract language.

I'm also acquainted with old master mediums and techniques such as egg tempera, grinding pigments, etc.

About Perry
Hello!

My name is Perry and I am a professional classical, flamenco and electric guitarist performing and recording in the Dallas area. I studied with Robert Guthrie at SMU for many years, as well as Brad McLemore of "Soul Food Cafe" and professional jazz musician Chuck Pangburn at Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts. In addition, I have taken masterclasses w/ many professional guitarists in all styles such as the flamenco guitarist Miguel Antonio.

I am familiar with all styles. I teach using a foundation in classical/flamenco style and technique. I have found that for my own career as a recording artist in both the classical, acoustic and electric guitar fields that the classical/flamenco styles are the most useful for developing and training the hands to become a consummate professional.

I teac
h beginner to advanced students of any age. I also can provide pro and amateur electric guitarists an in-depth study of correct hand postures and left-hand/right-hand technique which can help to refine their overall technique and stylistic approach. I can also advise professional electric guitarists on their electronics, effects pedals, and amplifiers to achieve their own individual sound. I also teach Bass, and reading the Bass clef.

My teaching specialties include: Solfeggio, Sight Reading, Music Theory, Scales and Modes, Left and Right Hand Technique, Blues Progressions, Jazz Standards the Classical Repertoire, Flamenco styles, techniques and repertoire, and the works of Sor, Giuliani, and Carcassi, Brouwer, Aguado, Villa-Lobos, Sabicas and Paco de Lucia.

I have an in-depth knowledge of the stylistic approaches and techniques of such guitarists as Eric Johnson, Jeff Beck, Joe Satriani, Randy Rhoads, Jimi Hendrix, Robert Fripp, Adrian Belew, and SRV to name a few, and I can teach you the components they use to build their signature licks.

As a rule I only transcribe to give the students examples for lessons. I intend for all of my students to grow as musicians, so my lessons do not consist solely of transcribed solos and riffs.

I have a vast library of music, so I can draw from my own resources to teach you, or from a method of your choosing.

My schedule has a few openings right now. I do teach outside of my stated teaching radius, but ONLY at the 60 minute rate.

I teach people of all ages, from children to adults. I believe everyone is on an even keel, if they are willing and eager to learn.

*** Lesson Details ***
Emphasis on classical posture and technique.
Emphasis on sight-reading.
All students learn to play basic blues and jam
Technique varies depending on the particular style the student wishes to learn.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I presently don't teach in my home studio. I can bring a folding music stand or extra footstool if necessary.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide a limited number of learning materials such as copied exercises, listening or practicing CD on occasion. However, I feel that it is the student's responsibility to provide their own guitars, and the bulf of their own learning materials and necessary electronic equipment. This can include footstools, music stands, method books, amps, cables, pedals, etc.

*** Specialties ***
I've been playing guitar for 25 years, and this has given me the time to study, perform, and perfect many styles of guitar playing.

I studied classical and flamenco guitar with Robert Guthrie for 4 years before and after my studies in the SMU program. I've also played in jazz and rock ensembles since the age of 14. I studied with Chuck Pangburn, pro jazz cat, and Brad McLemore, an indie rock songwriter, early on in my studies as an adolescent.

I encourage most students to learn to play on a classical or nylon-string guitar early on in order to develop proper technique, posture, sensitivity, and sensibility. I also encourage all students to learn to sight-read at a very early point in their studies. Once, this hurdle is cleared many other challenges are easily surpassed.

Presently, I am developing a new method which incorporates solfeggio, blues and popular music forms, and improvisational playing. I also am exploring the vanguard of new guitar technology such as the Moog Guitar, analog effects, and various guitar synthesizers.

I try to introduce an understanding of music theory early on so that students develop a full comprehension of not only the written language of music, but also the sonic-aural language of music.

Perry takes the time to explain flamenco and related styles deeply and thoroughly. He also provides detailed micro-scale feedback on hand/arm placement, orientation, range and which muscle groups to engage. But more than the technical, he has an awesome vibe and makes learning guitar quite an enjoyable experience.

Excellent Guitar Teacher

Within a month of lessons with Perry, my daughter was in love with the guitar! Perry is professional and great with kids! He couples the basics with discourse about genre, and is very encouraging! Perry helped guide us in the right guitar and accessories to get us set up before the lessons began, which was incredibly helpful. We are very glad we selected Perry to teach our 7-year old to play guitar and look forward to watching her grow under his guidance.

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

I've been teaching painting for 15 years. I work with my students to customize lessons to their individual needs. Working with specific goals, I can help students achieve whatever level of painting they wish to achieve. I have taught lessons with students of all ages and all levels. I teach the importance of understanding composition, light and shadow. Together, we can work on realism, abstraction, figurative, landscape or anything you desire!

About Adam
I am contemporary realist painter and I have just recently moved to Jacksonville, Florida. I received an MFA from the New York Academy of Art in Manhattan. For four years I worked as a painter and sculptor for world-renowned artist Jeff Koons. I have taught painting as an Adjunct Painting Professor at Brooklyn College, City University of New York and South Piedmont Community College. I have also worked as a Post Graduate Teaching Assistant at the New York Academy of Art.

I aim to achieve two goals in my teaching. First, I want to help students understand how to "see" rather than look. Being able to break down shapes, light and shadow in the visual field is really important. Furthermore, I aim to help students understand how to work with their desired medium. Whether a student wishes to use oil paints, acrylic paints, charcoal or any nu
mber of mediums, it is important to understand the best way to utilize each medium. With these two goals in mind, I customize and individualize lessons for students of all ages and levels.

I highly recommend Eric Armusik to any of potential students for enriching their individual oil painting career.

I've been instructing small and large groups of painters for several years. I love to see people get creative. I've taught beginners as well as long as you have a little artistic talent (even if undiscovered) I can teach you to paint. In order to paint with oils, you must have a little experience painting so I don't recommend beginner level. You may be a beginner at oils, but you should have already painted before. I can teach brush techniques and various subject matters - Abstract, impressionist, still life, portrait (intermediate only) and landscapes/seascapes.

About Nicole
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 and I even ran 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 g
et 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.

I understand and honor everyone has a unique way of approaching and looking at things...which doesn't mean I won't challenge you to try another way! Bob Ross to Salvador Dali. Open medium and maybe we'll try some new ones to find your unique method. Realistic to stylized. (Sorry Boo, no abstract)

...and it will be fun doing it (bad dad jokes at no additional charge)

About Zoe
Zoe began her career as an artist at Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL. Bent on pursuing her career, she returned to Ohio to achieve her art Degree. Eventually, she found her way to Los Angeles, working in the dark side of Hollywood, as a storyboard and concept artist in indie horror on such films as the “Hatchet” movie series and “The Collector.” A diverse artist, Zoe spent 8 years designing collectibles and creating original souvenirs for such notable clients as Disney, Hard Rock Cafe and Sea World. She finds a strange balance between making cute Disney characters by day and planning out slashing people to bits by night.

Zoe has always been an innovator of process and assisting peers, colleges and clients in more efficient ways to create art. Not your typical shy artist, she has been a regular of sci-fi, comic and similar circuit conv
entions as a panelist and fun teacher of acrylics for a Friday night Paint and Wine. Currently, she has returned home to SoCal and building new and exciting ventures in the art world.

She uses Illustrator and Photoshop nearly every day for the past 13 years along with her lifetime of skills as a traditional artist to accomplish a WIDE variety of tasks from more artistic to technical layouts.

...and you will have fun!

Allow me to bring out your creative ability, inherent in everyone. I will help you learn techniques of realism, surrealism, and abstraction using color theory to create intelligent narrative based off of what's truly within YOU.

Oil and acrylic painting techniques will be the main focus, exploring the versatility of each medium, particularly the watercolor-ability of acrylic.

About myself: I'm a visual artist with nearly 20 years of painting and drawing experience, also dabbling in film, sculpture, printmaking, digital design, spatial design, mixed media, and photography.

About Victoria

If you're also looking for a fun, laid-back, all-around comforting environment to discover, develop, and exceed your greatest potential in, let me serve you in teaching you all I know about the joys of creative expression.

Hope to work together soon!

I provide classical instruction in portraiture, still life and landscape in your studio or mine. In this traditional approach to drawing and painting, what will be taught and focused upon are perspective, value and composition in order for the student to develop strong visual language skills. The program of study begins with a specific focus on drawing, since drawing is the foundation upon which all great traditional art is built. Throughout this training, emphasis will be placed on accuracy, or more specifically, seeing and rendering correctly such things as line quality, hard and soft edges, proportion, positive and negative space through abstract form and the use of the full range of values.

About Jeff
I'm a graduate of Dean College in Franklin, MA and The School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston where I majored in art history and studio art with a focus on portrait painting and illustration. I continued further study at the Andeeva Portrait Academy in Sante Fe New Mexico, the Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Art in Van Nuys, CA and the Sadie Valerie Atelier in San Francisco.

The program of study for drawing will include: Demonstration of one, two and three point perspective, creating the nine step value scale, cast drawing in charcoal, the still life in charcoal and drawing the portrait. The topic of composition will also be covered. I’ve done commissioned work for Audi, the Norman Rockwell Museum, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the American Repertory Theater, the Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston, Kessler Financial Ser
vices, Harvard Business School Publishing, Shilo Baptist Church, the Chelsea Soldiers Home and others. Samples of my work are available to view in my profile. Additional samples are available upon request.
