Many people think they can't draw. I used to be one of them. Now, I know that everyone can draw, they just need to learn how to translate what they see into an image. We will start with contour, move into gesture, create the illusion of 3D form using value and color, composition and even create the illusion of space. We will use a variety of media including graphite, charcoal, pastels (oil and chalk) and even use paint. It's really lots of fun!

I have been a professional oil painter for 36 years and have taught oil and acrylic painting classes fro over a decade. I teach a casual, fun but serious style class. My goal is to teach the basics of creating a simple strong painting in a semi realistic style. However, my goal is to allow the student to develop their own individual style. Understanding the creative process is also key to making good art.

About Daniel

My name is Dan. The only thing that I love more than painting is teaching students how to paint. I call my teaching method, "serious play". In other words, I want the students to learn something of value during each class, but also to enjoy the creative process that is key to making a successful p

Keep the brushes wet, make every stroke count! Very patient - you’ve just got to do it. Been invaluable in guiding the composition - he can’t hold the brush for you! For a “left brained” person like myself I need to get the “slap”!😄

I have years of experience working with children aged 4-19, and adults who are anywhere between starting a hobby to perfecting painting techniques. Of course, beginners start with basic techniques, but I like to work toward a completed painting within 1-2 hours, when using acrylics, 1 hour or less with watercolors, or approximately 10 hours with oils, due to the drying time required. Everyone likes to end a lesson with something solid to show their progress.
I paint with acrylics, watercolors, oils, and epoxy resin. I don’t have a preference, as each medium is fantastic in its own way.

About Alicia

So you’re considering painting lessons... Excellent idea! Art lessons encourage you to use your imagination, and they help develop hand eye coordination. They’re a fun activity for children’s parties, a great way to get homeschooled children together for socializing, a fantastic introduction to a l

I took drawing lessons many years ago and have been practicing since then. I can help you get all the concepts and foundations to continue mastering this skill.

About Daniel

I love teaching, I can teach you at where you at and take you where you need to be. I only need a student with the desire to learn and to practice. I like to help students realize they have the intelligence and ability to solve the problems on their own, they just need the right direction. Nothi

All artists need to learn the basic fundamentals of drawing. I'll show you how to sketch ideas using reference imagery in pencil, focus on composition, form, light, shading, and more. As you progress we can introduce more mediums such as ink pens, alcohol markers, India ink, or colored pencils. I'm also happy to teach digital drawing, using various techniques to sketch and develop crisp linearts.

My drawing specialties are people, animals, and nature landscape scenery, so if any of these things interest you, let's get drawing!

About Emily

Greetings! Do you love to draw or paint either digitally or with traditional mediums? Do you or your kids love cartoons, anime/manga, or comics? How about figure drawing, or lovely nature landscapes? Drawing animals perhaps? How about portraits? Well, if you answered 'yes!' to any of these, then I'

Emily works with my son developing his drawing skills before he leaves for college to study digital animation. He really needed to work on illustration skills and Emily has been amazing! I can’t believe how quickly his skills are improving!! But more importantly to me is that my son enjoys the lessons. He is very comfortable working with Emily and his confidence has grown in the process! I can not speak highly enough about Emily as a teacher!! She has a very calm and supportive approach which is perfect for my son. My son does not drive so it is really convenient that she is willing to travel to my house for lessons!
Kaleb
I found the class very helpful and enjoyable. I've made a lot of progress and it really helps that it's one on one.
Molly
My daughter first met Emily through a summer camp that she participated in. She came home excited and told me that we HAD TO take lessons from her! She has been taking drawing lessons from Emily for the past year and has grown so much in skill! Emily is a patient, kind and caring teacher. She really has a wonderful way of connecting with her students and is supportive of their art style. I would highly recommend Emily!

His lessons are both fun and insightful with his teaching methods combining expressionist style and technical skills. You can tell he's passionate about teaching you how to learn and discover on your own and he's always encouraged me to take risks with my work. I can't wait for my next lesson."

I just completed a series of lessons with him to learn the basic elements of my new camera and settings so that I can go beyond the auto settings before embarking on a trip to Peru. I couldn't be happier with what Mark taught me. In addition to the basics of aperture, shutter and program auto modes, he provided very practical information on things like tripods, storage, programs and apps. I can't wait to take more lessons from Mark when I return from Peru!"
