Private Painting Teacher

Professional artist skilled in many mediums including oil and acrylic painting, pastel, collage and drawing. I work with each student individually to develop their talents and interests. Whether you want to paint landscape, still life, portraiture or abstract, I can help you build the technical foundation and learn to work with your materials. I have taught children from elementary school students to teenagers building portfolios for art school applications, and love working with adults of all ages. It is never too late to learn; we all start as beginners.

About Alex

Professional and internationally exhibited artist based in New York City. I make mixed media abstract paintings using acrylic paint, fabric, paper, canvas and a variety of found materials. I graduated from Rhode Island School of Design with a BFA in Painting (2011), and studied abroad in Rome. Art

Bgcheck Background Checked


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,

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!

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.

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.

Do you want to paint like Rembrandt? Do you want to be the next Van Gogh? Or maybe you want to be able to paint a portrait of your family dog! Well, these are the online classes for you! My name is Timothy and I have been oil painting for 25 years. I enjoy sharing my art experience with others, no matter what age, no matter where you are beginning. I can begin with the simplest subject matter in painting, and advance you into more advanced subject matter such as portraiture and painting from life. My training is a balance of self taught instruction and my art teacher, John Gordon of newmasters.com, the designer of the Green Bay Packers logo!
What are you waiting for? Now is the time to cultivate your inner artist and use your artistic talents like never before. Contact me and let’s get the ball rolling.

"What a brilliant artist! Joe went over everything an artist needs to know about color. He took the time to explain color psychology, pigment, characteristics, color schemes, color mixing, shadows, highlights, ect! He provided a solid understanding of color knowledge that I can put to effective use. Thank you Joe!!!!!!!!!!"

My daughter has started recurring lessons with this teacher.

I like her patience, and her result oriented skills."

"We are happy to have found Kai on TakeLessons. Kai works with our high school junior on her portfoilio and submissions for art competitions. The weekly online lessons involve setting goals, conceptualizing, live demonstrations and live coaching. We were initially worried about the effectiveness of online lessons but it has worked out perfectly so far in the second month of lessons. Our daughter has already shown improvement in her technique, and an enthusiasm for the lessons and for the pieces she’s working on with Kai."
