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.

As a child, I was very lucky to take painting lessons from a woman named Kerry, in my hometown of Sacramento. I remember having the most amazing experiences going to the zoo, and the park to paint, or just hanging out at her house delving into some still life. Many years later, I ended up graduating from NYU with a degree in studio art, with a concentration in painting. To this day, I paint and work with artists while simultaneously being a musician. In our lessons together, I want to bring you the same joy and curiosity I felt at the easel while helping you learn how to approach your paintings with great technique!

About Dia
After singing and performing for nearly my entire life, I have been in many musical projects and performances, including ongoing collaborations with Stuart Bogie ( Antibalas, Iron and Wine, Arcade Fire), and Joe McGinty (Psychedelic Furs, Nada Surf, Loser’s Lounge). I have sung with abandon in indie hot spots like Brooklyn Bowl, performed tributes at festivals like Mountain Jam, and traveled like a gypsy--honoring my desire to live a creatively full and wonderfully strange life.

In New York, I learned a holistic approach to vocal work from a combination of private instruction and master classes from my voice teacher, Kate Baker, hailed in many circles as “The Voice Whisperer.” I studied creative writing in the Colorado mountains with Dr. Clarissa Estes, New York Times Bestselling author of “Women Who Run with the Wolves,” and I g
raduated from New York University’s Steinhardt school with a BFA in painting and performance art.

I know firsthand that voice work is an incredibly personal and individual experience. Many of the challenges we face in the voice, are also challenges we face in our lives, be it an outmoded fear or a way of approaching technique that may need shifting. Either way, I am here to be your support, your sounding board, and your teacher to help you move past what may be hindering your creativity or your voice and move you into a place of healthy expression.

All the best, and may your voice be true!

Gwynn Oak, MD

I am a graduate of the Baltimore School for the Arts (BSA) majoring in visual artists and continued my studies at the Maryland Institute College of Art. In my spare time, I've taught for the last 15 years. I've tutored actual BSA students. I love painting. I love teaching art. It is an expression of an individual's personal journey.

The most fabulous thing about being an artist is that boundaries regarding creativity are non-existent. The artist is always in a state of learning. Art is a progressive practice that takes time to develop.

Students will be introduced to the color wheel, basic materials needed, perspective, and the differences between realistic and impressionistic painting techniques. Materials are not included.

Acrylic painting lessons will be assessed based on the individual's current abilities and their goals.

About Sharron
My resume includes graduating from the Baltimore School for the Arts and continued studies at the Maryland Institute College of Art until I decided I didn’t want to be a “Starving Artist”. So, I graduated from the University of Baltimore with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Business Administration with a minor in Human Resources Management. My education also includes 27 graduate credits that were leading to a Master’s in Public Administration when I decided to discontinue that path. After twenty-five years in the public sector, I decided to revisit my passion for art in my spare time. As a youngster, I remember wanting to teach art in schools, but I did not want the restrictions that are present in the classrooms and more so today. All forms of art is a freeing practice that is practiced and developed over time.

Sharron was an awesome instructor!!! She was very professional. She showed up early to set up for my daughter's paint and sip party. Sharron gave very detailed descriptions to help guide the amateur artists. Everyone enjoyed the personal feedback that was given. Sharron made our party a huge success. I would definitely recommend her services.

Become the artist you always wanted to be! Whether you are an aspiring artist, a total beginner, a teen building a competitive portfolio, or someone who's always wanted to learn to paint, I will help you develop your technical skills and find your voice as an artist! In our lessons, you will paint from life, exploring composition, concept, and mood through creative assignments. We will train your eye as you paint still lifes, landscapes, portraits, figures, abstractions, and beyond! I will show you examples of historical and contemporary painting as we practice a range of techniques. You will gain confidence through practice and experimentation as you work towards developing your own style as an artist! And most importantly, you’ll have fun! I can’t wait to work with you!

About Kathy
I’m Kathy and I am a professional artist in San Francisco! I received my Masters of Fine Arts and the San Francisco Art Institute and my Bachelors degree at Skidmore College. I make painting and textile-based 3D installations and have shown widely in the Bay Area, New York, and Chicago. I was a 2016 Artist-In-Residence at Recology and a 2017 Artist-In-Residence at the Lucid Art Foundation. I also have some exciting opportunities on the horizon! I’m passionate about arts education, interdisciplinary thinking, art history, ecological stewardship, and color theory. I love teaching art!

I’ve taught a variety of ages and skill levels and care about each student as an individual artist and human being. I design individualized lesson plans for each student with creative, engaging assignments that focus on both technical skill and personal exp
ression. I love helping my students learn and grow as artists.

I’m passionate about art history and color theory. In our lessons, not only will you learn how to draw and paint, you will also learn the cultural history around the subject. I will show you historical and contemporary examples of artwork that fit thematically with our lessons. We will have engaging conversations about art while we draw and paint. I can also point you towards art openings happening around the Bay Area.

My personal teaching style is patient, constructive, and encouraging. With practice and hard work, I can help you achieve your goals.

Other things I love include: Spending time in the Great Outdoors, listening to Billie Holiday, and cooking elaborate meals!

Kathy is very patient in understanding areas that needs to be worked on. I didn't know anything about drawing but Kathy structured the curriculum in a way that worked best for me without being overwhelming. Starting from the technical aspects of drawing to the conceptual aspects such as mark making and what drawing meant in a fine art context, she has got you covered. She is very professional, kind and works with you to get the best out of you.

Release your inner artist and allow yourself to explore the art of abstract expressionism.
Colors have been scientifically proven to alter moods and creating art can be therapeutic and an excellent way to release.
Sometimes, however, creating can be daunting when faced with preconceived notions of what the finished piece should look like.
If you've always wanted to paint but didn't want to do something cookie cutter or are experiencing the equivalent of writer's block when staring at that blank canvas-- abstract expressionism is the way to go.
Abstract expressionism allows you the freedom to just flow and release.
You'll learn basic technique as you explore and express yourself including how to properly hang, exhibit and care for your work.
I'm an exhibiting artist with years of experience in the field.

About Jennifer
I'm a professional artist and photographer.

My current disciplines are painting (acrylic primarily but also body-paint), photography (digital and b&w film) and mixed media.

I believe everyone is an artist and it's just a matter of exploring mediums until you find what's right for you and continue developing.

I love to nurture and facilitate that journey for others because art is therapeutic, it helps keep our wits sharp and it is a wonderful way to express, explore, connect and even make a positive difference.

My beliefs about teaching and learning begin with my desire to promote acceptance through art. Art is a language of expression available and accessible to everyone. I enjoy using various media for beginners as well as advanced levels.
I’ve always been attracted to religious paintings of the 15th century Flemish and Italian Renaissance artists. The gracefulness of the form was rendered with a perfect balance. The exquisite technical execution speaks to me of the enduring power of beauty.
I have a tremendous appreciation for a contemporary art. However, I am drawn more toward the classic academic art style.

About Fatima
From my early childhood I was exposed to an extreme diversity in cultures which played an important role in the feature of my artistic vision. Since I can remember, I drew on every surface I could get my hands on.
Today as a professional artist I exhibit my work in galleries of US and other countries.

About Helen
I truly enjoy sharing what I have learned over a 35+ year career in the visual arts.

My style capabilities range from super Realism to more Expressionistic images, and my studio offers many mediums from drawing ( pencil, charcoal, oil and dry pastels, conte crayons) to painting (acrylic, oil, watercolor).

I welcome all ages and abilities. Currently teaching an accomplished artist who wants to compete in a painting festival, a writer who has a natural talent for painting but never has the opportunity to be taught, and a 9 year old who's mother really sees some creative potential in her daughter!
