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 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.

I understand and honor everyone has a unique way of approaching and looking at things...which doesn't mean I won't challenge you to try another way! Bob Ross to Salvador Dali. Open medium and maybe we'll try some new ones to find your unique method. Realistic to stylized. (Sorry Boo, no abstract)

...and it will be fun doing it (bad dad jokes at no additional charge)

About Zoe
Zoe began her career as an artist at Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL. Bent on pursuing her career, she returned to Ohio to achieve her art Degree. Eventually, she found her way to Los Angeles, working in the dark side of Hollywood, as a storyboard and concept artist in indie horror on such films as the “Hatchet” movie series and “The Collector.” A diverse artist, Zoe spent 8 years designing collectibles and creating original souvenirs for such notable clients as Disney, Hard Rock Cafe and Sea World. She finds a strange balance between making cute Disney characters by day and planning out slashing people to bits by night.

Zoe has always been an innovator of process and assisting peers, colleges and clients in more efficient ways to create art. Not your typical shy artist, she has been a regular of sci-fi, comic and similar circuit conv
entions as a panelist and fun teacher of acrylics for a Friday night Paint and Wine. Currently, she has returned home to SoCal and building new and exciting ventures in the art world.

She uses Illustrator and Photoshop nearly every day for the past 13 years along with her lifetime of skills as a traditional artist to accomplish a WIDE variety of tasks from more artistic to technical layouts.

...and you will have fun!

I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of classical oil paint skills. I specialize in realism.

About Mariana
I am a professional artist. I've been studying representative fine art at the Art Students League of New York since 2013.

My students can expect to improve week to week in their drawing and painting techniques. While gaining knowledge of the fundamental principles of perception—light, plane-structure, tonal value, perspective, proportion—students will learn to construct images that realistically and accurately interpret objects in space. This solid foundation will enable students to express their personal creative vocabulary more clearly and effectively.

I teach students of all different ages and experience levels.

My personal passion is realism in classical and contemporary art but I firmly believe that great technique is essential to any and every style. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better artist!

Mariana thank you so much for your generosity! I have always wanted to paint with oils but didn’t know how to start. The way you teach makes it very simple and fun for me. Will continue painting.

Lessons with Mariana were very helpful. I started as a beginner and she helped me to learn basic theory behind drawing, as well as to develop my skills and gain confidence. I studied graphite anatomical drawing and advanced a lot in that technique since we started a year ago.

Just like Bob Ross, I believe everyone can make a beautiful painting. Painting is one of the oldest art forms still practiced today, and unfortunately, there is a misconception that it is very difficult to learn and get in to. I'm here to change your mind about oil painting, and to help you get those colors on canvas without any inhibitions!

About Thomas
Hi there! My name is Thomas Satalino, and I'm an instrumentalist, musician, photographer, painter, and writer. I have a passion for all things creative, and I teach people how to tap into their inherent creative ability, and find that artistic outlet they didn't even know they had!

About me:

I started playing piano at the age of 4, and have been playing musical instruments ever since. I have a passion for learning new things, and sharing my knowledge with others. Over the course of the past 5 years I have learned over 13 instruments, digital audio production, film/digital photography and darkroom processes, oil painting, cooking, and dog training. I was born and raised in Richmond Virginia where I taught for 2 years with "The Universal Room", an organization dedicated to teaching children with autism spectrum disorder the universal la
nguage of music. My approach to teaching Music is personalized, nontraditional, and heavily focused on creativity. I believe everyone is able to play an instrument, take a beautiful picture, and paint an inspirational painting. Although I can teach a student how to sight read, deep music theory is something I believe should be left to the academics. My desire is to open the heart of every person to their creative self, free of judgement, and to learn the universal language of art for art's sake.

With over 15 years of creative experience, and an active studio practice, I want to share my knowledge of color, rendering, as well as idea development with all levels of visual artists. Specializing in drawing and oil painting, with a strong focus on the figure, I will help you create images that are strong in skill and content.

About Alexandra
I'm a Brooklyn-based conceptual artist with a focus in oil painting. My work is representational and largely figurative, weaving traditional style with contemporary ideas. I received my BFA from Carnegie Mellon University, a program that put heavy emphasis on conceptual development, and I'm a strong proponent for both technique and content. I have shown my work in US and internationally, and was even once featured on Bill Maher! I love what i do, and want to share the joy of painting with others. And be the next Bob Ross.

Educated in Europe, I was always inspired by my teachers and travels to continue honing my artistic skills. With practice, anybody can develop their own style, and I believe it's my duty to pass on the knowledge that was instilled in me as a young artist.
Expression of one's soul in art may be sometimes stronger than words, something that psychologists have proven for years.

About Isabela
I'm an enthusiastic learner even after 19 years of formal education (two Masters, one Bachelor) earned on two continents continued by US military education in various forms, and formally tested student who needed to document skills that were not formally captured on paper (like the foreign languages I know).

I love interacting with people and pass on my knowledge from five visited continents, instill love for learning and continuous curiosity for any subject out there. Nothing is impossible when you set your mind to it. Failing once doesn't mean that you'll never win (proof in my athletic years and life ever since); determination, hard work, self-motivation and a good supporting system can bring to reality even the most insignificant dreams that we believe may not come true, and especially those in which we passionately trust.

I be
lieve in breaking down a goal into objectives, assigning tasks to each one of them, and then sticking to achieve them.

I'm a Certified Instructor with the Department of Homeland Security. My hobbies include practicing foreign languages by speaking them, learning about cultures and slangs, etymology, watching foreign movies, traveling internationally, taking photos, reading (a lot), carefully planning with room for error and impulsive decisions (to take the boredom out of things), meeting with life long friends, drawing, painting, and spending time outdoors for inspiration.

I'm elated at the opportunity of brainstorming with you and giving you tools to be an independent learner.

Isabela is a great teacher who truly has a passion for art. She took the time to share helpful tips and stories of her own experiences with our group of twelve, and did so in a fun and energetic manner. She managed to keep us all engaged and was a delight to have in our office. I would highly recommend Isabela!

First of all I am an artist! As an artist I believe that one of the best ways to learn is to try and lose the fear of mistakes. In my experience learning art I have tried different materials and techniques.
Part of my way of teaching is to learn painting techniques but just as important I consider it creativity, which can be practiced and developed.
I also teach one-on-one because I want to be able to flex the activity to the needs of the student. My desire is to work with each student on what they want to practice or explore, and decide between the two of us what next project would best fit where they are in their own interests and artistic development at the moment.
I have given classes for both adults and children and in both I believe that learning art is not only about developing a skill, but as a therapy to expose our inner world as an artist. The learning process takes time and practice, but also gives us the ability to develop what we are passionate about.
