Art is fun at all ages and I have experience teaching four to fifty-year-olds! My high school art students have won awards at the local, regional, and national levels mostly for drawings and paintings. We even made a couple community murals before I moved away from Houston, TX. Please see my online portfolio and student artwork at www.shinestudioshouston.com.

About Kathryn

I'm a fine and digital artist and have been teaching art for over 9 years experience. Both my undergraduate and graduate degrees are in art and art history. I studied at The School of Visual Arts in NYC. My goal is to mentor students in the creation of visual arts to develop their creative skills and techniques. I believe art is an extremely important form of communication and can also be a healing therapy.

Painting is about so much more than applying pigment and oil or water. I can teach how to see, how to understand color theory/relationships in the context of paint, and eventually, how to develop, understand, indulge, and challenge your own tendencies as a visual maker.

Since I have actually set up a separate subject for painting with oils, these prices will be applicable to painting with acrylics/other. Not that I would be excluding pertinent information in one of these classes versus an oil painting class (priced slightly higher), but because teaching painting generally starts with a water-based medium. It tends to be less messy, both literally and figuratively :) Basically, in these classes, I would teach about basic tenets of learning to paint. In terms of technical specifics we won't actually work with oils, but I am glad to talk about them and how they contrast water-based paints. I suppose that is my hesitation for labeling this as acrylic-specific. I am cool talking shop ...

About Mary

I am a recent college graduate with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. My main areas of concentration are drawing and painting, but I am also trained in printmaking, photography, sculpture, etc. Being an artist means being a lot of things. You are not someone with just a hobby; you are an engineer, mathematician, planner, risk taker, designer, scientist. The list goes on. I dedicate my life to problem-solving. This is what art is. I would love to share my knowledge and be able to continue to support my creative life by supporting the drive for success in others.

I have really no age limit in terms of students. If you are a parent looking for a teacher for a child/ren, that's great, we could have some fun constructing and working on anything from still lifes of their favorite toys to acrylic paintings that touch on color relationships. If you you

rself are looking to strengthen your drawing from nature or learn how to build a realistic self-portrait, that's great too. I'm willing and happy to do anything from spending time sculpting with a senior citizen to discussing and working on conceptual painting with a student in need of more outside fuel and support for their creative fire. I believe that teaching to think like an artist is just as important as teaching technical ability. I've become adept at both of these skills in my four years at the University of Dayton, and I am so excited to share with and learn from you in return!

My daughter and I took drawing lessons with Mary, and it was a great experience. She adapted her plan to what we wanted to learn and guided us through the creative process. Mary was patient and gave great constructive feedback. I would recommend her to everyone!

Bgcheck Background Checked


Private Painting Teacher

I am an independent professional visual artist, with over 20 years' hands on teaching experience in U.S. and abroad.
At the age of 13, I began learning how to paint with my father, who is an established artist, in an informal studio class. Later, I decided to pursue higher education in fine arts and received my BFA and MFA degrees. While working on my Bachelor’s degree, I began teaching in schools and later in my private studio.
My expertise is to help others to discover their special talent, as I believe every person has a unique sense of creation. As an experienced art teacher and mentor, I have always provided a solid education for every one of my students and I have demonstrated an ability to engage students from diverse academic backgrounds and age groups.
My goal is to develop an understanding of and enthusiasm for arts in others by addressing different learning styles. I demonstrate both traditional practices and contemporary critical and technical approaches to painting.

by addressing different learning styles. I demonstrate both traditional practices and contemporary critical and technical approaches to painting.

Along with coursework and research, being a professional visual artist has shaped who I am as a teacher. Through experiencing variety of techniques I have become familiar with alternate ways of visualizing and pushing the boundaries of innovation. I would love to share this perspective with my students whenever possible.

Enjoy one on one art class with me and let me help you to discover the power of your inner artist!

Private 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!

My lessons are unique because I bring with me the experience of over 10 years as a professional visual artist, and the skill of an artist who has been collected/ has exhibited in four countries across the world!

I paint portraits in photographic realism (a.k.a. at first glance I can be mistaken as a photograph). I would love to instruct you how to paint in my style and teach you some of the tricks of the trade!

My first solo gallery art exhibit was in Brooklyn, NYC in 2015. Notable collectors of my artwork include acclaimed actress Taraji P. Henson.
