I most often paint with oils or digitally, but I am also experienced with acrylic, watercolors, and gouache. For my digital paintings, I primarily use Procreate on the iPad, but I've been painting in Photoshop since I was 13. Let me know what medium you're most interested in, or whether or not you'd like to explore more than one! Even if your focus is digital, I highly recommend doing some traditional painting as well; it will greatly strengthen your digital painting skills (speaking from first-hand experience).

In our lessons, we will build upon drawing foundations and strengthen your understanding of color and light by painting from observation (both from life/in person and photo/video reference). We'll learn how to mix colors and layer paint to create depth and dimension. The subjects you paint will depend on your own personal interests, whether it's landscapes, portraits, or something else; I will always give assignments with your artistic goals in mind. If you have little to no ...

My daughter loved her lessons with Jessi! Highly recommend.
Brie
Jessi has been a tremendous help for my Design II class. They taught me all the proper techniques and was very patient with me and my extremely minimal amount of skill. Thanks to them I managed to get a much better grade than I usually would in these types of media classes (i'm so so so bad at technology) and I feel more autonomous when it comes to designing my own posters for shows.
Destiny
Jessi was always kind, honest and extremely helpful with her critiques of my work. Her guidance helped me understand key concepts in what makes good art and I improved so much because of it! I highly recommend her as a tutor!

Always a great experience! She makes me feel so comfortable every time. It's a breeze working with her, would highly recommend. She really cares about her students.

Andrea has been a great voice lesson teacher for my daughter. My daughter felt comfortable singing in front of her even though she has anxiety when signing in front others. She's very relaxed and confident teacher and help her students to feel the same. And I must add, that she's a very easy person to get a hold of, and to communicate with at all times. She customizes the lessons to fit the student needs. I highly recommend her.

I specialize in digital painting, with my strength in human portraiture and cute animals. I also create background paintings in the context of video games.

My medium of choice is primarily digital, and I've recently been using Krita, which is free to download.

My goal is to help students improve markedly and achieve their goals in painting. I can also help students build (college) portfolios.

Emily is an excellent animation tutor. My 10-year old daughter really enjoys working with her. She has a very straight-forward demeanor that drives towards real learning using no nonsense feedback that resonates with our young animator in a naturally motivational way. Emily has been extremely professional and helpful to us as we worked to get the right technical setup for her lessons. She is super detailed with amazing follow-up after every lesson and she always responds to questions. We are so glad that we found Emily on TakeLessons! Our daughter is more enthused than ever about animation and the skills that she has learned after these first five sessions with Emily!

Emily works well with my child who is a beginner. I was very impressed with the animation he created during his first lesson! We're looking forward to more lessons.

I Highly Recommend Talin. She is a wonderful art teacher for all levels of students. She is patient, fun and always helps bring the students vision to life. You will be amazed at the artwork you will produce from spending time learning from Talin.

Talin is very creative, and such a good teacher! I have several pieces of her work.
Rhoda
Talin is an incredible teacher. She taught my granddaughter, who had no painting experience, over Zoom and now my granddaughter is painting AMAZING things. She has only had 4 lessons and has learned so much that you would think that she was an adult who had been painting her whole life.

Talin is patient, enthusiastic and very talented and if there were a 100 star rating, that's what she deserves!!

Her studio is everything you imagine a Brooklyn artists studio would be.

"I've taken private lessons in the past, some were good, some not so good. I've always felt that other instructors followed a very generic blueprint during their private lessons. With Roya, I've never felt that way. The lessons are designed in a way that I felt as if I'm progressing as a artist. Do yourself a favor, and sign up. You will not regret it. :)"

"My regular art classes were canceled due to COVID-19, but a friend knew someone who was taking some some private classes online with Carolyn and I decided to try it out. Now that I have, I think it's much better than being a single face among many! I'm improving so much with the one-on-one feedback and suggestions that I'm getting and Carolyn is such a kind, funny, and personable woman that I don't feel intimidated at all, even though my skills aren't where I'd like them to be. She's also extremely flexible with scheduling - with the shelter-in-place orders and with kids in the house 24/7, I can't always meet at the same time every session, but she lets me choose what works best for me which is another thing I don't get with regular classes. I'll definitely continue taking classes with her even after life returns to normal. Thanks Carolyn!"
