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. You will train your eye as you paint still lifes, landscapes, portraits, figures, abstractions, and beyond!

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!

Rosemary is a dedicated artist and teacher. She worked with my daughter to create her high school visual arts portfolio. Rosemary demonstrated not only a clear knowledge of what high schools were looking for in a portfolio but she knew my daughter as an artist. This helped to guide us in the high school selection process. With her guidance, my daughter is attending AND thriving at the high school of her dreams!

I have been drawing since age 3, and competing artistically since age 6. My complete love and passion for art has helped me win many awards, and graduate with a fine arts degree with honors from the Academy of Art University. I would love to share all my experience with you! I believe anyone can learn to draw, and I can teach a wide variety, from surrealism to photo realism, including portraits! I have several years of teaching experience, and can teach any age bracket! Your lesson plan will be catered to your abilities and goals for the best experience.

"Kai is a masterful painting instructor who is immensely skilled with his craft. His philosophy in painting is very inspiring, and has long stayed with me in my career as an artist. Unlike professors in art colleges, Kai gives informative demos, and in all honesty has taught me more technical skills than my art college (and most other art colleges) did alone. I would definitely recommend Kai to any artist/painter (both new and experienced) out there, he’s both professional and approachable as an instructor."
