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.

I have worked with children as young as three and young adults up through high school in an array of media, including tempera, acrylic, gouache, and oil paint in subjects from figure modeling and cityscapes to abstract painting, illustration, and murals. I emphasize using one's own style and vision and introduce techniques as they are requested either verbally or through careful study of my students' process.

About Alexander
My current teaching focus is helping to enable young people to develop confidence, self-direction and self-reliance in their life's work by unleashing their creativity in various subjects while offering them new skills and techniques.

I have been enthusiastically teaching for over twenty-five years, generally in the fields of fine art and web development. Previously, I founded an alternative K-12 school in New Jersey, co-founded a Brooklyn based summer camp, and most recently, co-founded play:groundNYC, a junkyard playground for children on Governors Island in New York City, where children are self-directed in their play with an array of junk materials for uninhibited play and discovery.

I am a certified New York State art teacher, have taught K-12, college, graduate, and continuing education. I have a Masters in Fine Art from Pars
ons School of Design, The New School University and a Bachelors of Arts from Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers University.

Alex is kind and patient. He is always well prepared, explains things clearly and makes an effort to come up with new activities. We're glad we found a teacher so close to home and we feel lucky. My daughter looks forward to every class. Sometimes Alex's sons join the lesson. They are lovely - my daughter really enjoys their company and I'm glad that she has both individual instruction as well as the chance to work with his kids.

I have taught over 500 students how to paint! Each painting lesson is tailored to your interest and where you want to develop skill. My schooling background is in figure painting, modern painting techniques, color theory and composition. I have been trained by masterful painters from all over the world and look forward to sharing all that I have learned with you.

About Megan
*Online Lessons have special pricing - Please contact me about online lesson pricing *

I am drawn to the timelessness of the human figure as the focal point of a painting. I find people to be my biggest source of inspiration. This appreciation extends also to the students I am honored to teach. I never quite know where the art class will take us and what skills will be honed to match the inspiration the student has, but on many occasions we both are wonderfully surprised by the results. I design each lesson to inspire and encourage the student . The techniques will come with time but it takes inspiration to get there!

I had three other painting instructors before I came upon Megan's class and I will say she is the best painting teacher I have had and that does not come easy because I am a professional sculptor that has taught and taken many classes in the art field. Simply put Megan is at the top of her game and her style of teaching is one that most anybody will benefit from her classes.

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!

Having recently graduated from the Grand Central Atelier (and currently instructing there), I can help develop your eye and teach you the art of rendering sensitive, accurate and highly emotive artwork. I'm confident in my abilities to discuss materials with my students in-depth and personalizing curriculums to suit their individual needs. I'm extremely patient and understanding towards beginners, and will do everything I can to help you become the best fine artist you can. Intermediate and advanced students are no problem for me, and I would be happy to share my knowledge and challenge them towards a stronger foundational basis in their realist artworks.

About Sandra
Hello everyone!!! I'm a happy-go-lucky lady from Los Angeles, California. I've been studying traditional and classical art ever since I was a young girl, and found myself frustrated throughout the years trying to find like-minded people who value and prioritize the Academic Art method that the Old Masters of the past have gone through to become as great as they were (William A. Bouguereau, Eugene Delacroix and John Singer Sargent, to name a few). This led me to venture out into New York City and pursue my higher education there. As challenging as it was to keep my head above water with money and culture shock, I finally graduated four years later in the spring of 2017.

My goals now are to help other artists gain knowledge in attaining the highest possible accuracy in the foundations of drawing and painting, and ensure that they receive
a classical realist education that I desperately yearned for in my past. I consider myself boundlessly generous with my knowledge and passionate to share what I know with the world. I hope to meet you all, and thanks for reading!

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.
