Experimenting with materials in layers and mix. Emotional response to materials and of course, gesture. Movement and vision experiments with the materials. Pouring, splatting, seeing, not seeing, sprinkling, flinging. Careful and neat; messy and careless. The willingness to just go in and have the delight of image come back to you.

About Gina

I am in New York City and accepting new students as well as reconnecting with anyone who wants to return.
I have two graduate degrees: one in Music and the other in Dance and Theater studies.
My undergraduate degree is from The Juilliard School, in Dance.

I've taught children and grown ups for many years. I have a strong performing career and love the way teaching keeps me in a giving and learning place.

*** Lesson Details ***
With beginning students I am very laid back and patient and believe strongly that in the play of games and experiments technique will develop and manifest. As the student becomes more advanced I become more demanding as do the materials.

As an Acting teacher I have the capacity to take students along all the way to professional and beyond. I'm a member of the Actors Studio, the performing unions and ha

ve studied since childhood at ACT and then all over the world including The National in London.

For Dance, I have a wide knowledge and can teach several forms as well as history and materials. I also teach Ballet and many forms of Modern Dance. I adore teaching dance composition. To help a dance student make their own dances is very fulfilling. I also teach choreography or composition.
One of the aspects of dance composition that has recently captivated me is the composing of sound and music for the dance that is also being made. Using software, we can explore electroacoustic as well as language and text collage as sound score for your dance. It is super fun!!!

For the Visual Arts I teach Abstract Painting as well as Installation and Performance Art.
*** Studio Equipment ***
I have supplies and space. Visual Art students need to contribute to materials by finding or purchasing whatever they like and adding to the mix. My students are welcome to use what I have here and I am always adding materials. Many people throw away materials that are perfectly good for art making so keep your eyes open and you'll find all kinds of good things. Visual Art students need to book a 2 hour minimum and I will lower the price if you just let me know you need it.

My fees: I start at a higher fee and after you've been a regular student we can lower the fee for you if you need.

*** Travel Equipment ***
just a space to work in - we can create a work space out of any space.

*** Specialties ***
In dance I teach classical ballet principles for beginners or those who are returning and want to work carefully and privately. I teach from the tradition of Alfredo Corvino's principles of relationship to organic forms and structures for sound development. I studied with Mr Corvino for years and continue to study with Ernesta Corvino.
For acting I teach a combination of classical acting technique with American sense memory and relaxation skills. I am well versed in the teachings of Lee Strasberg and then spent time in London to 'fill in the cracks' of my training with analytical skills as well as the various european influences that the Royal National embrace.
I teach creative discovery in combination with classical devices so the student can discover their own artistry while learning actual classical devices for accomplishing specific goals.

Private Drawing Teacher

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 draw, I will help you develop your technical skills and find your voice as an artist! In our lessons, you will draw from life, exploring composition, concept, and mood through creative assignments. You will train your eye as you draw still lifes, landscapes, portraits, figures, and beyond! I will show you examples of historical and contemporary drawing 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 New York! 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 past artist in residence at the Vermont Studio Center, Recology, and the Lucid Art Foundation. 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 expression. I love helping my students learn and grow as artists.

And I love little kids, so if you're a parent or guardian who just wants your child to have fun with art, I'm the teacher for you!

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 New York.

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!

Have a question? Don't be shy, send me a message and let's get started! I can't wait to meet you.

Private Drawing Teacher

I am a classically trained artist and I teach traditional methods of representational drawing. I’ve taught at several local ateliers as well as internationally through the State Department’s Art In The Embassies program. I can help you learn about perspective, line, volume, and composition in an a way that is easy to understand. My teaching style is rich with experience and information but also very low key and unintimidating. Also— I’m really fun! Come draw with me!

About Eileen

Hello! I moved to Brooklyn fifteen years ago to get my MFA at Pratt Institute; I've been a professional fine artist for my entire adult life and have shown my work extensively in and around New York. I have taught traditional oil painting at local ateliers and I also teach plein air workshops in the Hudson Valley through the Artist’s Workshop Association. In 2018 I was invited by the US Department of State to teach a series of oil painting workshops at an art college in Algiers, Algeria, because one of my paintings hangs in the Ambassador's Residence there. It was an amazing experience! I love talking about painting and drawing and demonstrating what I've learned. For more info, pics, and demonstrations, you can check out my IG (@eileen_murphy_studio) or my website (eileenmurphy.net).

For both drawing and painting, I lead my students thr

ough a series of exercises that teach the fundamentals of observation and execution. My own work is very realistic, so I have the technical skills to demonstrate to students how to reach the goals they want, whether or not they want the results to be exactly true to life. A lot of my students end up making more expressionist work which is great! And some others are interested in making very traditional paintings.

Additional note: I provide materials for beginning painters so that you don’t have to invest in paint and brushes until you know for sure that you want to continue with it. I think that makes it easier for people to get started.

I also teach small group lessons (2-3 people) so message me for that pricing if you have a few pals you want to bring with you!

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.

Eduardo
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.

Private Drawing Teacher

Learning to draw from observation is a skill that most people can develop over time with patience and practice. My interest lies in teaching the student to see differently, to use their tools properly and become self-sufficient.

About Jeremy

I attended the Art Students League of New York (2013-17/ present) and New York Academy of Art (2017-19) where I've been focusing on drawing and painting from life. I'm interested in students who are new to art, experienced at drawing or advanced students who want a new perspective.

As a full time professional, I can introduce the student to a world that I see everyday and a very tangible understanding of process of making art. An understanding and relating of many ideas through the visual vernacular of the things around us.

Kavi has a depth of insight into color and emotion that is hard to find in an art teacher. He inspires you to find moments in between your daily life, hidden behind monotony, that you can only appreciate when you have relaxed your mind. He is the perfect guide for those who aspire to not only learn the basics, but to bring new life and freedom to painting and illustration.

Private Drawing Teacher

I have been teaching professionally for more than 10 years. I can teach a total beginner and I guarantee a profound change in terms of his skill level after 2 months of an 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 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 professional 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, realistic, impressionist/post-impressionist, expressionist 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 overall 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 real-time digital paint

er.
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 promotional purposes. I teach online, in my studio or at a student’s home.
