Online Drawing Teacher

To draw is to be fearless. If you are interested in drawing from life, then I can assist by teaching you the basics or show you how to improve your skill set. I work as a professional artist and have a great deal of knowledge about materials and processes. I enjoy working in ink, pencil (graphite and colored), charcoal, and pastel (oil and soft). I am also into combining media. I have taught for over a decade and my students range in age from children to senior citizens.

About Sandy

I believe in the power of art to change lives. I have been working as a professional artist for several decades and I love what I do. My work ranges from murals to intimate portraiture. My resume includes National Endowment for the Arts funded public art projects, solo exhibitions and museum shows

Experienced drawing teacher of 7 years, I have taught students of all experience levels. You can also get feedback/advice on your art work by selecting a 30 minute critique. You will receive notes and step by step instructions during your art class. . If you would like some home work to help you improve quickly I can also send an email after class with instruction. Wether you want to learn how to draw a human figure or photorealistically, I have the steps to get you to your goal! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of drawing skills. I specialize in figurative, portraits or animals. I have been trained in classical methods that get results, looking forward to meeting you!

I've been teaching drawing classes to students of all ages and group sizes for the last 6 years. In my Drawing lessons we'll learn about basic technical concepts and techniques with different tools. We'll discuss how to apply those techniques to different images and scenes, and how to use them most effectively. Well also learn from classic pieces of art and historic artists. Lessons can also be tailored towards students individual interests while also giving a well rounded education.

About Eli

Hello! I am a professional artist and art teacher with 6 years of education experience. Previously I studied Studio Art at SUNY Binghamton. I've had my artwork hung in galleries, offices, restaurants and other venues around the Boston area. I've been hired for murals, book illustrations, private

He's fantastic. My son, who is 8, loves the lessons and his drawing has improved immensely. Eli is a natural teacher and is really great with kids. Highly recommend.

We started with the lessons being in-home but have transitioned to online and those have been working out great too.

I’ve been teaching for a year and welcome students of all levels! My lessons are all about training your eye and mastering the foundational elements of art so you can draw anything from life our you imagine. I bring lots of practical techniques and old school methods introduced in a modern way that takes into account the interest of my students and keeps the learning fresh and fun.

At all of my lessons I introduce the works of an established modern or classical artist that either exemplifies the lesson of the day or is someone whose work or life story I think my student might find interesting. We don’t just learn how to draw or paint but also learn how to talk about art and make it more a part of your everyday life.

I have been teaching drawing and painting for over three years one-on-one and in groups, both in person and online. I have a bachelors degree in printmaking and oil painting and spent some time in Florence, Italy studying painting and drawing by studying the High Renaissance masters. I have a full

Our first experience was awesome! Jason was professional, patient, kind, and down to earth! Can’t wait for the next lesson! 🙂
Barney
Jason is an awesome and patient teacher. Can't recommend him enough!
Samwise
He knows how to teach, but he taught from his iPad, iPhone, in his car. I kept asking him how to draw, and he kept showing me from his iPad. This didn't translate to a good experience. If he wants to teach, he needs to do it NOT from his car.

"I am an adult student (33) taking beginner drawing lessons with Jessica. My interest/goal is to draw realistic portraits (maybe in a few years), but with no background, I'd better start from the basics, and I am so glad to have Jessica as my teacher. Her philosophy about how to approach art alone is already teaching me so much - for example, what's the correct mindset, how to really observe a subject, how to practice drawing even when I am not drawing.

We have been working on building up foundational skills and their sequence, which gives me clear understanding on what each small step means in the long term. Based on my interest and what I knew and didn’t know, Jessica would design each lesson with a specific focus in mind, usually around practicing a certain technique. Her homework (I ask for homework since I draw slowly) also reinforces those learnings. I feel more confident with each lesson, and my progress is noticeable.

Also, she is incredibly encouraging, patient, and generous. I never feel judged or self-conscious practicing techniques in front of her (often clumsily) or showing her my new drawings. She always gives thorough feedback and encouraging words. Overall, she gives me confidence on my journey, and that is much needed for an adult student who didn’t have the chance to start when younger. Best teacher ever!"

He challenged my daughter outside of her normal comfort zone in a super fun way and she immediately asked for more lessons after the initial trial. Will definitely continue with more lessons."
