I have over thirty years experience teaching both privately and in group situations. I teach all levels from beginning and as young as six years old to the most advanced students. We never stop learning!

I started a very successful after school art program for kids grades 1-6 and taught it every day for over three years. I then expanded and had other artists teach it, eventually giving it to a non profit art organization in the San Diego area, after a successful ten year run.

About Lynn
Lynn B. attended four of the very best art colleges in the country With over 40 years experience in both painting and teaching art, she is well equipped to teach both any style and medium and to absolute beginners through advanced students.

Ms. Buettner has studied at several of the most prestigious art schools in the Northeast including: Rhode Island School of Design, The New York Art Students' League, the Paier College of Art in Connecticut, and the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston. Her work has been shown in galleries throughout the United States and Canada, and is in collections worldwide. Summering on the East Coast on Martha's Vineyard Island, Ms. Buettner's work quickly became known and collected by local residents and returning island guests. Most originals were sold while still on her easel.

To keep up with demand, sh
e created a complete product line including collector's limited edition prints, her signature greeting card with collectible art magnet, art magnets, post cards, photo magnet frames, calendars, notebooks, folders and photo albums.

The publishing company that licensed her designs flew her to China to do an art signing at the Canton World Trade Show.

Enthusiastically sharing her knowledge, she has taught all levels of art to both beginners and adults for the past thirty years. She created and taught a very successful after school art program for kids for over ten years as well. After devoting the last twenty years to painting scenes ranging from realistic to impressionistic, Ms. Buettner is venturing out with her accomplished techniques and abilities, into the exciting and unusual world of intuitive expression. Letting go of conscious thoughts, an exciting, creative and sensual world emerges to be shared with the viewer. This work has been coined Neo Biomorphic.

Her work has been used on many different commercial projects including the Nash Bridges TV Show and the TV movie Diary of a Mad Housewife.

Starting a very successful after school art program for grades 1-6, she has extensive experience in all age groups bringing the student from beginning drawing to the most advanced painting techniques that took over 40 years to acquire.

Lynn was so helpful in aiding me to complete a project I have been wanting to complete. She went at my speed (sometimes slow, sometimes hasty) and helped me with techniques I had no idea about and others I just did not know how to do well. I was working on a portrait of a young girl in a dress and she helped me create the pleats in the dress and work on the girl's complextion and hair. As a hobby painter, I am very pleased with my final product which I am going to give as a gift with confidence!

Lynn is very knowledgable about many aspects of art. She has an incredible ability to relate the student (Me) and how I want to learn. Lynn is very personable and offers great advice and insight to the drawings that I want to learn to create. I highly recommend her to other students interested in improving their artistic capabilities.

I graduated from the Harvard Graduate School of Education in June 2007 with a Master in Education (Arts in Education) degree. During my studies I worked in the framework of the Artful Adventures Program (Museum of Fine Arts in Boston), which provides object - based learning and hands on artistic experiences for elementary and middle school kids. My own research was about “Creative Insight in Practice" and "Acquiring English as a Second Language and Developing Self-Esteem through the Idiom of Art". I have more than a two decades-long experience in painting, drawing, printmaking and installation work.

I use digital tools in order to layer text, photos and drawings and combine them to a new work.
Photo and text based collages will often merge into drawings or watercolors and these are the starting point for my large scale oil paintings.

Kerstin has been teaching German to both my kids for the past several years. Their grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation has improved dramatically. Kerstin has done a tremendous job tailoring her lessons to the different needs and learning preferences my children who very much appreciated this tailored approach. Most recently, Kerstin helped to prepare my oldest daughter for her German SAT subject test with outstanding results. I can highly recommend her.

Kerstin has been a great teacher for my two sons. Kerstin always made an special effort to provide teaching material that was not only age appropriate and appropriate for their level of proficiency, but was also tailored to their particular interests. Her teaching style is methodical, while also casual and interactive, and thus well suited to provide a positive learning experience, particularly for children and adolescents. Both my children have benefited greatly from her teaching and I would recommend her highly.

Megan was both professional and kind - clearly knows the subject well. I thought the approach to discuss the pillars of the content was a great idea and I am looking forward to the next lesson.

I made a last minute lesson with Megan as I panicked about a university project that I was in no way prepared for. She is a calming and professional energy that guides you along the first few movements. At the end of the class she summed up what the next steps would be, making sure to set me up for success. I will definitely be signing up again!

Megan was great . We did a "group " lesson with my 90 year old mother who has painted her whole life, but has not in the past 5 or so years along with my 7 year old daughter who loves art. A great experience for granddaughter and grandmother to bond.

Moe is a good instructor, he has a lot of experience with teaching basics and intermediate topics in the fine arts. Not only is he familiar with traditional painting and techniques, but his practice itself is very innovative in inspiring you how to harness your own skills and seeing artmaking in your own way.

My watercolor technique involves using water brushes where the water is stored in the handle of the brush. They are easy to use, portable and easy to cleanup.

About Joey
Hello Artist-in-Progress,

We are all artists-in-progress because, no matter how good we are, we can always get better!

I'm Mr. Joey and I love art and I love teaching art! I am a graduate of The Art Institute and an artist and animator that creates art in pencil, charcoal, pastel, watercolor, and digital mediums.

I recommend that classes are *at least* 1.5 hours (and I really recommend 2 hours!) because that's what's needed to critique homework assignments, warmup, and do the work for the class, and not be rushed.

Classes I teach are:

• Drawing Fundamentals
• Advanced Drawing
• People and Anatomy
• Portrait Drawing
• Cartoon Characters for Animation
• Character Design
• 2D Animation
• Digital Painting in Photoshop
• Digital Animation

Please view samples of my work and contact me with any questions you may have.

I look forward
to helping you develop your art skills and explore your creativity!

Mr. Joey
