Painting in acrylic, watercolor or mixed media in a hands on class tailored to your skill level, style and subject matter preference.
For the first class I would provide materials and then give you recommendations on materials that you could purchase.

About Teresita

ART: I love making art accessible to everyone. I am passionate about helping people get in touch with the artist that lives within them. Many people think they're "not good at art" but my philosophy is that you can be good at art as long as it makes you feel something. If you enjoy it, that's good

Terri has been a great teacher with my children. She elicits cooperation without being authoritarian. My kids are always asking when class is and are super excited when she rings our doorbell. I can't imagine a better endorsement

Having a great time learning watercolor from Teresita! She's very clear with her instructions and super patient with me. She incorporates art theory into every class combined with an enjoyable exercise/piece.

It's such a joy to take classes with Margarita. As a children's librarian by profession I'm impressed with how well she teaches and inspires children, always a lot of smiles in her classes. As an adult returning to art I'm learning so much about the core fundamentals that are taking my art to the next level. Margarita is an expert teacher, kind, considerate, and dedicated to helping her students achieve and develop their potential and talent. I highly recommend her, and her classes.

My son is a beginner in drawing and is a bit apprehensive about his drawing skills. I really appreciated and liked Margarita's approach, setting music to create a relaxing atmosphere for drawing, explaining the steps, and the foundation for sketching. I think we approached drawing wrongly and after the lesson I changed our way. We play music now (which he likes) and he is drawing more often and is more relaxed.
Nandini
My daughter attends Ms Maggie's art exploration program. Ms Maggie is very patient with children and brings out the best in her students. My daughter has learnt a lot of techniques in art under her guidance and looks forward to art class every week. I'm so happy and grateful that my daughter has a wonderful art teacher. Search no further if you're on the lookout for an art teacher for your child.

I provide classical instruction in portraiture, still life and landscape in your studio or mine. In this traditional approach to drawing and painting, what will be taught and focused upon are perspective, value and composition in order for the student to develop strong visual language skills. The program of study begins with a specific focus on drawing, since drawing is the foundation upon which all great traditional art is built. Throughout this training, emphasis will be placed on accuracy, or more specifically, seeing and rendering correctly such things as line quality, hard and soft edges, proportion, positive and negative space through abstract form and the use of the full range of values.

Want to learn to paint or draw your favorite scene or photo you took on your last vacation? Interested in learning how to creatively express your own artistic development through your favorite medium? I have been a practicing artist for 20+ years and I love seeing others progress with mediums they are personally interested in. Painting, drawing, photography and ceramic sculpture have been large focuses of my artistic career; coupling that with my love to educate others I'd enjoy the opportunity to talk to see if I could invest my time teaching you some of the skills and techniques I have learned from all around the world.

About Sheldon

I am an experienced artist that has traveled the world, learned from many teachers, observed, utilized tested techniques and have a mentality that I can always be learning. I studied art a little more than average in high school, but graduated with honors in college with several classes of studio l

What a pleasure it was having Sheldon come in and teach our youth! We planned a night of creativity for our youth at our church and Sheldon kindly volunteered and provided materials for our teens to have an awesome experience.

WHO IS ROY G. BV?? While most of my 30 years of experienced has been in baking and pastry, I have a BFA in painting, and realized early on that understanding the color wheel and color relationships has helped create decorated pastries that WOW customers. In this class you will learn the uses of primary, secondary, tertiary colors, as well as the harmonies of complementary, analogous colors, and their values. If you are a young painter, cake or cookie decorator, or even want to update the wall colors in your house, this is for you!

Pamela has twin strengths that contribute to an excellent class experience in my opinion. First of all, she has strong teaching skills and can instruct and guide a wide variety of individuals of varying levels of ability, age and background. This is more important than may be apparent - no one gets short changed. Secondly, she is one of the most creative people I know. She also has exquisite taste so the products she creates, whether it's a tart or a painting are in a class all their own. Highly recommended!
Tara
Pamela is an excellent instructor! Her teaching style is easy to follow and understand. Thank you Pamela, great class!
