Private Oil Painting Teacher

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 have more than a two decades-long experience in painting, drawing, printmaking and installation work.The images I use in my work are mostly based on self-made or collected photos or drawings from nature combined with literature or self-made phrases. 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 is a fantastic teacher. She connected right away with my daughter Chloe who is 8 years old and immediately engaged and had her learning German after 1 lesson. She is punctual and professional. I highly recommend her.

She was absolutely patient and was able to work with and engage my son who has a learning disability. She did a great job making him feel comfortable and after only one session I could see his confidence go up as he continued to draw into the evening. She really enjoys what she does and it shows in the way she worked with my son.

Private Oil Painting Teacher

I am a classically trainer realist oil painter with an MFA and years of experience. I have taught at several ateliers in NYC and internationally through the State Department’s Art In The Embassies programs. I break down the painting techniques of the Old Masters into easy to follow steps and cater the lessons to what the individual student is interested in pursuing. Also— I’m fun! Come paint with me!

About Eileen

Hello! I moved to Brooklyn fifteen years ago to get my MFA at Pratt Institute; I've been a professional fine artist for my entire adult life and have shown my work extensively in and around New York. I have taught traditional oil painting at local ateliers and I also teach plein air workshops in the Hudson Valley through the Artist’s Workshop Association. In 2018 I was invited by the US Department of State to teach a series of oil painting workshops at an art college in Algiers, Algeria, because one of my paintings hangs in the Ambassador's Residence there. It was an amazing experience! I love talking about painting and drawing and demonstrating what I've learned. For more info, pics, and demonstrations, you can check out my IG (@eileen_murphy_studio) or my website (eileenmurphy.net).

For both drawing and painting, I lead my students thr

ough a series of exercises that teach the fundamentals of observation and execution. My own work is very realistic, so I have the technical skills to demonstrate to students how to reach the goals they want, whether or not they want the results to be exactly true to life. A lot of my students end up making more expressionist work which is great! And some others are interested in making very traditional paintings.

Additional note: I provide materials for beginning painters so that you don’t have to invest in paint and brushes until you know for sure that you want to continue with it. I think that makes it easier for people to get started.

I also teach small group lessons (2-3 people) so message me for that pricing if you have a few pals you want to bring with you!

Eileen has been great to work with online, therecreally are no painting teachers in my area who have the technical knowledge to help me out so I was really stuck. We only started recently but I’m learning so much faster now.

Eduardo
I’ve been working with Eileen online for awhile now and it’s been really great. I’ve learned so much from her techniques and her tips about my palette and brushes. I’ve learned a lot just by watching but her comments to me have really helped my painting progress much faster.

Private Oil Painting Teacher

Want to learn to paint or draw your favorite scene or photo you took on your last vacation? Interested in learning how to creatively express your own artistic development through your favorite medium? I have been a practicing artist for 20+ years and I love seeing others progress with mediums they are personally interested in. Painting, drawing, photography and ceramic sculpture have been large focuses of my artistic career; coupling that with my love to educate others I'd enjoy the opportunity to talk to see if I could invest my time teaching you some of the skills and techniques I have learned from all around the world.

About Sheldon

I am an experienced artist that has traveled the world, learned from many teachers, observed, utilized tested techniques and have a mentality that I can always be learning. I studied art a little more than average in high school, but graduated with honors in college with several classes of studio level ceramics. During which time I began teaching other students. I loved being able to help those who were in the studio with me.

My love for art began when I was young and have always been pushing the envelope of my skills to get better, and be able to understand more complex principles of art.

As I matured in my artistry I began to develop my own styles from the many teachers I encountered and produced my own pieces that ranged a variety of genres: watercolor, acrylic, drawing, sketching, charcoal drawing, oil pastels, markers, pens, shar

pie temporary tattoos, poetry, wire sculpture, ceramic sculpture, pottery wheel, photography, plant design, bonsai, and most recently I have developed as an oil painter.

With so many avenues I have ventured down, I am thankful that I have learned to take creativity into everything I do. This especially came to true when I began to travel the world. From Europe to Asia, I have learned from different cultures and have taken that opportunity to reflect on and venture back to teach you some of my favorite techniques that I have had the privilege to learn.

He gave expert advise and technique but also embraced everyone creative side. Hope to have another night with Sheldon as our teacher. Super fun night!!

Sheldon was highly recommended and I now see why! He came to our church’s youth night to teach us all about watercolor painting. He was patient, engaging, prepared, professional and so kind! We feel so blessed to have had him as a guest artist and look forward to having him back soon!

Private Oil Painting Teacher

I have been teaching professionally for more than 10 years. I can teach a total beginner and I can guarantee the profound change in his skill level (regardless of his age), after 2 months of the attentive following of my instructions. I like to watch the progress of my student and this is what brings me the best satisfaction in my occupation.
I think that every human being is unique with his own unique way of thinking and perception of the common things. When teaching, I believe in dialogue, for this reason, I never record my lessons on video, except for the promotional needs. I like to meet new students, to understand their way of thinking and to invent the individual teaching approach or methodology for each one of them.

About Danil

I am an academically trained professional artist with the overall working experience of about 20 years and an impressive record of exhibitions (two of them are museum one-man shows) in the USA and abroad.
I am teaching in three languages: ENGLISH, HEBREW and RUSSIAN, representational, realist, impressionist/post-impressionist, expressionist (Fauvism and Expressionism) and abstract painting and drawing with the emphasis on European tradition.
I am working and teaching in different mediums, like charcoal, graphite, acrylic, oil, watercolour and soft/oil pastels.
I have a Russian classic art education, MFA from Pratt Institute (Painting /Drawing) and about 15 years of teaching experience.
Currently, I am working as a commissioned portrait artist and also performing on stage with some well-known musicians as a multimedia artist and re

al-time digital painter.
As an art educator, I specialize in students of different ages and skill levels. I have developed a methodology for teaching the beginners of pre-pension or relatively late age. I believe in dialogue in education and for this reason, I never record my lessons, except for the promotional purposes. I teach online, in my studio or at a student’s home.

I was very lucky to take private lessons with Danil - after only a few of them I had a clear systematic approach to my drawing process. I very much appreciate analytical way of work in art, and that’s what Danil was doing greatly : he sharpens the tools while keeping your individuality. Highly recommended!

"Kai is a masterful painting instructor who is immensely skilled with his craft. His philosophy in painting is very inspiring, and has long stayed with me
in my career as an artist. Unlike professors in art colleges, Kai gives informative demos, and in all honesty has taught me more technical skills than my art college (and most other art colleges) did alone. I would definitely recommend Kai to any artist/painter (both new and experienced) out there, he’s both professional and approachable as an instructor."
