About Dovile
I began teaching while studying in Art Institute. My first students were 5 to 7 yr. old kids. It was very challenging, but also very rewarding. I was teaching them skills, they were teaching me patience. Later the age of my students grew, until I ended up teaching the same students I was in the same classes just 6 months ago. Again another challenge. I love challenges and even more I love helping others to overcome them.
My philosophy about teaching is that everybody can learn, it is only the way how we learn is different for different people. Another very important thing - I strive to be creative, respectful and approachable.

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.

About Giuseppe
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.

Giuseppe is a very patient and knowledgeable instructor. Because much of this is new to me there was an overwhelming element to the lesson but he’s aware of that and flows well with my learning style.

Lessons would be individualized to focus on areas that need the most guidance.

I have been painting for several years and I have studied many techniques.

About Melissa
I have been teaching since 2006 on a variety of topics. I graduated with an BA from the University of Wisconsin. My degree is in History with and emphasis on East Asian history.

I've taught all age groups from age 2 up to retirees. My teaching experience includes one-on-one and group classes in a variety of settings. I've taught corporate classes, private lessons, small groups, and traditional classroom lessons.

We have a student-centric philosophy of learning. Lessons are generally relaxed and designed to work towards accomplishing student determined goals. While all students will study similar fundamentals regarding technique, theory, and performance, every lesson is as different as every person. Special focus on topics like music theory, self-accompaniment, composition, song writing, and home recording are available as well.


What are your personal goals? We'll tell you what you need to do to get there, and help you take the steps to achieve your aspirations.

Lessons with small children are more focused on just having fun while developing a good musical foundation, but we prefer for them to have as much personal ownership of their lesson as possible.

Melissa was the perfect teacher for my child. She's warm, engaged, patient -- and very skilled. I think my daughter continued with her piano instruction only because she enjoyed her classes so much! If we hadn't moved an hour away, we would still be going to Melissa. She's awesome! I highly recommend her.

I am currently the Visual Arts Teacher as well as the Director of Advisory at Northside Charter High School in Brooklyn, NY. I have helped develop the school’s culture significantly over the past five years I have been there.

My mission at Northside Charter High School was to create a curriculum that shows our students that their presence is essential to the ever-changing arts community. This led to creating the curriculum for Northside Television, which is Northside's first web-based school news network. NTV has grown to become a staple in Northside’s community and has brought about positive changes to the culture of the school. My master's thesis based on this course entitled, “Media Production and its Role in Preparing High School Students to be 21st Century Learners”, provides data on how our program has brought new skill-sets to the senior cohort. Students of all backgrounds are on the screen and are representing their community, their ideals, and their concerns.

Due to the success of our program, PBS chose Northside to become an official NewsHour Student Reporting Lab. CNN Director and three-time Emmy award-winning director, Luanne Dietz, mentored our seniors. Students also have the opportunity to utilize PBS’s resources by offering them internships and personal recommendations.

I’ve also worked in conjunction with local Brooklyn galleries such as the RAM Gallery and 630 Flushing to provide Portfolio Development students with the opportunity to display and sell their artwork.

She is a well versed artist with many different skills, though where she shines is in drawing which has helped me in my understanding in the concepts of light and shadow, gesture and figure drawing, as well as how different strokes and the effects they carry, whether using graphite, charcoal, pastels, and other mediums. It all came to use in my college application process for developing my portfolio as I was accepted into a variety of colleges and universities across the country

Ms Goldenbaum has been by far the best artistic navigator. Not only has she taught me how to stroke a brush, she taught me how to really tap in with my mind and become one with the art itself. If it wasn’t for Ms Goldenbaum, I wouldn’t know as much as I do now about things like abstract art , water colors and primary colors. Shouts to Ms G!

Love art but never thought you could draw or paint? I believe that anyone can create works of art, if you learn how and practice. With my help, you will learn the foundation of drawing, as well as techniques of painting in Graphite, Watercolor, and Acrylic paint. All this while tailoring everything to your personal needs and tastes!

Curious about my background? I have been drawing since I was 4 years old, received my Bachelor's Degree in Media Arts and Animation, then went on to work on my Master's Degree in Painting.

Interested in learning with me or finding out more information? Send me a message, let's get to know each other!

About Jessi
I am a professional artist, board game designer, and animator. I graduated from the Art Institute of Houston with a Bachelors in Media Arts and Animation and am working towards my Masters Degree in Painting.

My students can expect to improve with every week in not only your drawing skills, but also your painting techniques. Every artist is different and I will strive to bring out your inner artist that I know you have! You have a voice, I will teach you to tear down your artistic walls and unlock your individual expression.

I work in several different mediums, including, but not limited to, Graphite, Watercolor, Acrylic, Digital, Ballpoint pen, and Sidewalk Chalk. I have been drawing since I was 4 and taught myself. At the age of 14, I went with my family to Disney World, where I sat in on a drawing lesson by one of the artists of 'The
Lion King.' It made such an impact on me, that I still remember what he drew, Zazu.

I teach art students of all different ages and experience levels. I can teach you to draw using graphite pencils as well as paint in different mediums, including watercolor and acrylic. I love to mentor students with a passion, as that is where some of our best work comes from!

I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become an artist!

Enjoy a fun, vigorous, and creative experience as you learn about being loose as you paint or draw. I am a former gymnast and a current coach who merges athletics with art. Each lesson will begin with a light stretch before the creativity begins. We will go over color theory, brushes, and painting solutions. We will also review geometric shapes, the human body and face, and a little bit of history. I will recommend artists and exhibitions to cater to your art interests and you will also learn about ways to exhibit your own work.

About Daryl
I am a figurative artist and illustrator. I received my BFA in Painting from Ohio University in 2013 and my MFA in Fine Arts from the School of Visual Arts in 2016. I am also a former gymnast and I enjoy discussing the human body in my art practice. I have exhibited my work in local galleries like the Hole, the Untitled Space, and I have also hosted my own exhibitions. I recently illustrated and edited a Children's book about gymnastics titled "My Flipping Yaya" which has just been awarded the Pacific Book Review Star for excellent merit.

I have been painting for 20 years and have focused on Abstract expressionism, figuritve abstraction and landscape painting. I use oil, acrylic, encaustic and digital mediums.
Painting, is a joy of expression that I would love to help you explore and expand on.
I can teach you how to mix colors, learn about composition, discover tools and techniques that you may not have considered.
Let me help you unlock your innate abilities and expand on your understanding of color, form, perspective, composition and technique.
Painting and drawing have their own visual language and this language must be nurtured, practiced and repeated for it to become your very own. Plus it is very fun and a true joy for those that pursue it with vigor.
Let’s paint, draw and use our eye and imagination to create something beautiful.

About ALEXANDER
I have been playing music for 25 years.
During this time, I focused mainly electric bass and the Acoustic Guitar. I play rhythm guitar in a very busy World Fusion Flamenco Gypsy Jazz band, based in the SF Bay Area. I have learned a sure way to develop the building blocks for playing music. A way to practice and retain the information that you want to learn and quickly advance in your musical passion. I personally use these techniques and want to share them with you. Through patience and determination I will help you discover how to practice, develop technique and then enjoy and play music. I will answer your questions about your guitar from the simple to complex.
If you want to learn Gypsy Jazz, chords, rhythm and technique, how to play Blues, Rock, Funk or Reggae, or how to read chord charts and tablature, I want to help.
I am alwa
ys excited to work with beginners, so if you are very new to your instrument we can discuss the geography and mechanics of it as well. We will start with the basics then build upon ideas that will give you a holistic understanding of the guitar and how to play music.

"Practice makes perfect" but you need to know "what" and "how" to practice, too make the most of your time.

I would not say that it is easy to learn how to play music or play guitar but that it is completely worth the time that you devote to it.

Music, is a gift that will always give back, you give it to yourself and then share it with your friends and loved ones.
Music, you will have it for life.

Check out the music that I play.
