Acrylic is the perfect medium for a shorter time period to paint. The paint dries almost instantly yet with the techniques I teach your paint will stay wet for days and weeks. Great way to learn to paint and a medium you will switch to forever depending on the subject matter.

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 Joe
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.

As a child, I was very lucky to take painting lessons from a woman named Kerry, in my hometown of Sacramento. I remember having the most amazing experiences going to the zoo, and the park to paint, or just hanging out at her house delving into some still life. Many years later, I ended up graduating from NYU with a degree in studio art, with a concentration in painting. To this day, I paint and work with artists while simultaneously being a musician. In our lessons together, I want to bring you the same joy and curiosity I felt at the easel while helping you learn how to approach your paintings with great technique!

About Dia
After singing and performing for nearly my entire life, I have been in many musical projects and performances, including ongoing collaborations with Stuart Bogie ( Antibalas, Iron and Wine, Arcade Fire), and Joe McGinty (Psychedelic Furs, Nada Surf, Loser’s Lounge). I have sung with abandon in indie hot spots like Brooklyn Bowl, performed tributes at festivals like Mountain Jam, and traveled like a gypsy--honoring my desire to live a creatively full and wonderfully strange life.

In New York, I learned a holistic approach to vocal work from a combination of private instruction and master classes from my voice teacher, Kate Baker, hailed in many circles as “The Voice Whisperer.” I studied creative writing in the Colorado mountains with Dr. Clarissa Estes, New York Times Bestselling author of “Women Who Run with the Wolves,” and I g
raduated from New York University’s Steinhardt school with a BFA in painting and performance art.

I know firsthand that voice work is an incredibly personal and individual experience. Many of the challenges we face in the voice, are also challenges we face in our lives, be it an outmoded fear or a way of approaching technique that may need shifting. Either way, I am here to be your support, your sounding board, and your teacher to help you move past what may be hindering your creativity or your voice and move you into a place of healthy expression.

All the best, and may your voice be true!

Visual Art is another dimension, another reality. It can be true or invention. It can be poetic or logical. Is where you learn to recreate and express it to others.

I encourage people to develop their own art technique. I can provide courses and tutoring all levels of development. Starting from the Art fundamentals for the more advance sense to advance composition and creation. I always consider carefully what are the interests and goals of my students to develop a custom course for them. I have a Bachelor Degree in Visual Arts from the University of Puerto Rico and a Master Degree in Conservation and Restoration of Cultural Heritage, from Polytechnic University of Valencia, Spain.

My course can range from traditional drawing methods, to experimental painting technique. I can flourish the course with cool art history facts.

I think is the most important part in the painting class is to know where do you want to head up. And then, lets go!

About Gabriela
I started the Art carer when I was 8 years old! I started drawing cartoons and fine art work masterpieces because I love it and I could understand it. I actively took a variety of workshop being a teen age to adulthood.

In 2010 I graduated from University of Puerto Rico from the Fine Art Department with the opportunity to do an Art in Residence in my last graduating year. Luckily to me I started running a professional workshop since this times. Under this program we got the amazing opportunity to go as far as our creativity allows. There were no limits, from sculpture, to paintings, to installations, to drawings.

After graduation I continue studies research in Conservation and Restoration of Cultural Heritage in the Polytechnic University of Spain. Studding abroad, I got the opportunity to meet international perspectives on the Arts
. Historical research and the chemistry of art supplies where my new deed. I got involve in multiple antiques preservation projects under the direction of multiple professionals of the field in Spain, San Francisco, and New York.

I started teaching professionally in 2013, after my Master's was accomplished. I have being working with people all ages. Mostly I do free lance adult courses and during day time, I teach children ages 9 to 11 at school art education programs. At the present moment I live in New York. I run 2 painting workshops and work part time at Split Level Gallery. I keep myself pretty active on the arts, always with a very positive perspective.

If is good, is possible!

30 plus years as an artist and art instructor/ art therapist. I meet each student where they are at; emphasizing creative expression while at the same time fostering skills that support that. I can instruct in watercolors, acrylics, as well as oil painting and pastels.

About Pamela
I am very experienced working with children and teens. I have been a credentialed art teacher/ therapist for many years. I believe that making art is a joyful experience and can open up creative self expression. Plus, its fun! I love sketching, doodling, painting, and mixed media.

I have a private practice as an art therapist (specializing in children with special needs and autism), but I can put on my instructor hat and focus on skill building in drawing, painting and mixed media.

I love to help students create their own unique style and I do not judge or critique harshly, but gently show students the steps involved.
