Private Watercolor Painting Teacher

I am a practicing artist of almost 9 years! Being creative is a great way to express yourself and bring forth a piece of mind. Painting is an activity that allows for you to put on canvas whatever landscape, image or emotion you wish to portray. From abstract painting to hyperrealism, we can dive in together to discover some of your favorite ways to express your creativity. Whether it be through watercolor, acrylic, oil painting or another medium, painting what the student wishes to gain further experience in is what we will accomplish. My aspiration is to be able to let each student discover and further the true artist within them! Shoot me a message and let’s get creative! All skill levels welcome!

I teach what you want to learn. Lessons may include: Basic or advanced techniques. Mixing vibrant hues. Wet-on-wet. Dry brush. Masking. Glazing. Dew drops on flowers. Textures--using salt, layering, sponges, scratching, lifting, etc. Considering your light source. Loosening up. Taking care of brushes. Paper selection. Painting outdoors in the open air, from photographs, or from still lifes. Using your phone to help you edit your painting. All levels--from beginner to advanced. Demonstrations on creating watercolors in the style of famous watercolorists.

Subject matter can include landscapes, seascapes, florals, abstracts, still life, color grids, and more.

Additionally, you can schedule a lesson and let me know that you want to use it as a critique to review some of your work. I recommend the 45 minute session for a critique.

Watercolor painting has a way of showing emotion and expression. The most fabulous thing about being an artist is that boundaries regarding creativity are non-existent. The artist is always in a state of learning. Art is a progressive practice that takes time to develop.

Students will be introduced to the color wheel, basic materials needed, perspective, and the differences between realistic and impressionistic painting techniques. The students main objective is to learn, by painting what the individual wishes to paint (personal projects that sparks and continues the creativity within).

Materials are not included.

Watercolor painting lessons will be assessed based on the individual's current abilities and their goals.

Note:
For virtual sessions, the student will need to create a conducive workspace that will allow teacher/student viewing of art work in progress. The student will need a workspace with lots of light. Often, I will ask to see the students progress, so that I may be ...

I have trained with some of the top artists in the fine art industry and learned many of their secrets to share with you. My methods combine classical and modern art techniques in a fun, interesting and friendly way. Take a look at my portfolio images to see examples of my work . In private watercolor classes I will show you the basics of watercolor, a variety of techniques and how to paint animals, faces or landscapes. Water colors are wonderful for illustrations , expressive art or realism . Water color is a relaxing and meditative medium perfect for a busy life to slow down and appreciate the creative flow.

GROUP CLASSES: I also offer group classes for friends , student and co workers .
