Megan was engaging, genuine, and had an extremely well-prepared lesson for us to start with. I felt like I gained a lot of important perspective about art, in both a technical sense and regarding the mentality of creating art. Great teacher. Looking forward to another lesson.

It was my first time ever doing oil painting. I so much enjoyed the class with Mariana! She was patient and very calm, explained everything in details to me, guided me through every step. I had a lot of fun and I'm also very happy with what we've accomplished at the first class! Totally recommend!

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.

Painting is a great creative outlet for people to spend time relaxing and make something beautiful that brings you pride and joy. Anyone can paint! All it takes is time and a willingness to make mistakes and learn from them. I’ve been painting for 8 years and teaching for 1. I welcome all students who are interested in picking up painting as new hobby or returning after a long time away. We’ll build out your painting techniques and color theory so you can paint from real life or something abstract.

The third lesson was pretty helpful. His approach towards drawing is different than what I am used to, but also very beneficial.

David did a good job breaking down how to draw a candle using the grid method. The concept he taught me is really easy to apply and helped me complete my first assignment. He is a good instructor.

Roya is a wonderfully energetic, hands on art teacher, who has moved my oil painting from mundane to lively & exciting. My lessons with Roya are such a pleasure. The lessons are geared toward helping me grow in areas I expressed a need for, as well as filling in weaknesses which her expertise recognizes need working on.

I am a classically trainer realist oil painter with an MFA and years of experience. I have taught at several ateliers in NYC and internationally through the State Department’s Art In The Embassies programs. I break down the painting techniques of the Old Masters into easy to follow steps and cater the lessons to what the individual student is interested in pursuing. Also— I’m fun! Come paint with me!

I’m really enjoying my lessons with Eileen. Painting is hard but she’s moving me along through the steps of learning how to do it. We’ve been working together for three months and i can’t believe how much my paintings have improved.

I wanted to try something new and creative so I picked oil painting. Eileen’s lessons are fun and challenging, I feel like I’m making a lot of progress and I’ll never look at a cup and saucer the same way again! Sometimes during night lessons she even brings snacks.
