Lessons would be individualized to focus on areas that need the most guidance.

About Melissa
I have been teaching since 2006 on a variety of topics. I graduated with an BA from the University of Wisconsin. My degree is in History with and emphasis on East Asian history.

I've taught all age groups from age 2 up to retirees. My teaching experience includes one-on-one and group classes in a variety of settings. I've taught corporate classes, private lessons, small groups, and traditional classroom lessons.

We have a student-centric philosophy of learning. Lessons are generally relaxed and designed to work towards accomplishing student determined goals. While all students will study similar fundamentals regarding technique, theory, and performance, every lesson is as different as every person. Special focus on topics like music theory, self-accompaniment, composition, song writing, and home recording are available as well.


What are your personal goals? We'll tell you what you need to do to get there, and help you take the steps to achieve your aspirations.

Lessons with small children are more focused on just having fun while developing a good musical foundation, but we prefer for them to have as much personal ownership of their lesson as possible.

Moe is a good instructor, he has a lot of experience with teaching basics and intermediate topics in the fine arts. Not only is he familiar with traditional painting and techniques, but his practice itself is very innovative in inspiring you how to harness your own skills and seeing artmaking in your own way.

View Full Profile

Experienced teacher, specializing in the beginner & intermediate artist! Learn to paint what you see, and express how you feel with a paintbrush. Lessons are customized and catered to the experience level of each student. Learn the basics of color theory, shading & lighting, and much more. Let's get started!

About Jen
Hello!

MY NAME IS Jen
I've been an artist for as far back as I can remember, and have been perfecting my technique every step of the way. For me, each piece created is a learning experience. I grew up watching Bob Ross paint his pine trees and effortless mountains, all the while instilling in me that there are no mistakes in art, only happy accidents. I was also greatly inspired by a woman named Nan, that I took private lessons from in New Hampshire, in 1995. She encouraged me to think outside the box of only shading with black, always had incense burning, and gave us dried apricots to snack on. She is also a big reason why I've decided to explore the world of teaching private lessons myself; I'd love to be someone else's "Nan" one day.

I currently volunteer teaching group art classes once a week in Marietta. It's an amazing
community center for those in recovery from addiction.

I earned a 2 year certificate from Chattahoochee Technical College for Digital and Multimedia design in 2014. I've also been studying German for about a year and a half. I would love to travel there one day and paint Plein Air (and if you don't know what that is, I'll teach you!)

I look forward to meeting you and helping you on your journey to becoming a better artist!

About David
Dedicated art professional with 18 years of experience in creating artwork utilizing various medias. In my early years I worked as an outsider artist giving watercolor lessons for Susan Edwards of the artist place called "The Art Attack in Sycamore Illinois. After some years of painting and displaying my work at outdoor art shows and inside some stores i went to Northern Illinois University and obtained my Bachelor of Fine Art in painting. I have joined art leagues and art guilds near where I live. I recommend the Kishwaukee Valley Art League and the Rockford Art guild. There i learned how to reach children and adults on how to get interested in painting. Strong competency in teaching and leading aspiring artists in group or individualized settings. In order to become a better artist you learn by drawing in a sketchbook from photos i
will assign every two weeks. If you think they are good then you will redraw them in a journal. We will critique them by email and make wonderful discoveries on how you are getting very good at becoming an artist.

Inside my art studio I have had artists stick to my belief that a sketchbook and a journal with pencils is the best way to improve.

Happy Drawing and remember my favorite words "Just Paint"!

Love art but never thought you could draw or paint? I believe that anyone can create works of art, if you learn how and practice. With my help, you will learn the foundation of drawing, as well as techniques of painting in Graphite, Watercolor, and Acrylic paint. All this while tailoring everything to your personal needs and tastes!

Curious about my background? I have been drawing since I was 4 years old, received my Bachelor's Degree in Media Arts and Animation, then went on to work on my Master's Degree in Painting.

Interested in learning with me or finding out more information? Send me a message, let's get to know each other!

About Jessi
I am a professional artist, board game designer, and animator. I graduated from the Art Institute of Houston with a Bachelors in Media Arts and Animation and am working towards my Masters Degree in Painting.

My students can expect to improve with every week in not only your drawing skills, but also your painting techniques. Every artist is different and I will strive to bring out your inner artist that I know you have! You have a voice, I will teach you to tear down your artistic walls and unlock your individual expression.

I work in several different mediums, including, but not limited to, Graphite, Watercolor, Acrylic, Digital, Ballpoint pen, and Sidewalk Chalk. I have been drawing since I was 4 and taught myself. At the age of 14, I went with my family to Disney World, where I sat in on a drawing lesson by one of the artists of 'The
Lion King.' It made such an impact on me, that I still remember what he drew, Zazu.

I teach art students of all different ages and experience levels. I can teach you to draw using graphite pencils as well as paint in different mediums, including watercolor and acrylic. I love to mentor students with a passion, as that is where some of our best work comes from!

I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become an artist!
