I have been teaching professionally for five years with both small children and adults in many different platforms. My students can expect to develop skills of sketching in paint, rendering objects realistically, color theory, color mixing, texturing and blending, and building contrast. I work with you, where you're at, and develop my lesson plans custom to your individual needs. My students and I always have a blast and make the learning experience fun.

About Sondra
Hello future student :) My name is Sondra and I would love to help you achieve your painting goals. I have a wide range of skills, from abstraction to realism and many hues in between. I received my Bachelor's in Fine Arts from The Oregon College of Art and Craft, a school that gave me background in modern, conceptual art. I also learned and revered techniques from the old Masters, such as Rembrandt, who have a classic, timeless perspective on painting. I've heard it said that it takes 10,000 hours to become a pro, which is why I give my students a painting assignment from our very first lesson. I will get you started wherever you are in your level of experience. I'll help you learn to paint what you're looking at as well as develop your own sense of style when painting expressively. I have a great eye for color and mixing and my students
have felt this was a particular advantage of learning from me. I'd love to meet you and help you on your painting journey. So sign up with me today!

My main medium is Oil,though i use all mediums( currently gouache and other aqeuos mixed mediums.)My goal is to help student in understanding how to approach a painting, manipulate paint and understand both abstraction and paint application, for all levels ofcourse. For each level my teaching and philosophy will drastically differ, all depend on the student's capability to understand, practice and apply.

Art is my Passion, and to me it means many forms, from drafting, to painting, to intellectuality and how to represent it, to even more physical and energetic form like music. Education is my second passion, and i find it correlating perfectly with art. I love to educate and spread art as I think of myself as a very social, people oriented person.

I have multiple Years of experience in teaching Art. Recently taught Elementary school in an after school program, and the experience was wonderful.

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.

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. We will train your eye as you paint still lifes, landscapes, portraits, figures, abstractions, and beyond! I will show you examples of historical and contemporary painting as we practice a range of techniques. 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!

About Kathy
I’m Kathy and I am a professional artist in San Francisco! I received my Masters of Fine Arts and the San Francisco Art Institute and my Bachelors degree at Skidmore College. I make painting and textile-based 3D installations and have shown widely in the Bay Area, New York, and Chicago. I was a 2016 Artist-In-Residence at Recology and a 2017 Artist-In-Residence at the Lucid Art Foundation. I also have some exciting opportunities on the horizon! I’m passionate about arts education, interdisciplinary thinking, art history, ecological stewardship, and color theory. I love teaching art!

I’ve taught a variety of ages and skill levels and care about each student as an individual artist and human being. I design individualized lesson plans for each student with creative, engaging assignments that focus on both technical skill and personal exp
ression. I love helping my students learn and grow as artists.

I’m passionate about art history and color theory. In our lessons, not only will you learn how to draw and paint, you will also learn the cultural history around the subject. I will show you historical and contemporary examples of artwork that fit thematically with our lessons. We will have engaging conversations about art while we draw and paint. I can also point you towards art openings happening around the Bay Area.

My personal teaching style is patient, constructive, and encouraging. With practice and hard work, I can help you achieve your goals.

Other things I love include: Spending time in the Great Outdoors, listening to Billie Holiday, and cooking elaborate meals!

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!

I am currently the Visual Arts Teacher as well as the Director of Advisory at Northside Charter High School in Brooklyn, NY. I have helped develop the school’s culture significantly over the past five years I have been there.

My mission at Northside Charter High School was to create a curriculum that shows our students that their presence is essential to the ever-changing arts community. This led to creating the curriculum for Northside Television, which is Northside's first web-based school news network. NTV has grown to become a staple in Northside’s community and has brought about positive changes to the culture of the school. My master's thesis based on this course entitled, “Media Production and its Role in Preparing High School Students to be 21st Century Learners”, provides data on how our program has brought new skill-sets to the senior cohort. Students of all backgrounds are on the screen and are representing their community, their ideals, and their concerns.

CNN Director and three-time Emmy award-winning director, Luanne Dietz, mentored our seniors. Students also have the opportunity to utilize PBS’s resources by offering them internships and personal recommendations.

I’ve also worked in conjunction with local Brooklyn galleries such as the RAM Gallery and 630 Flushing to provide Portfolio Development students with the opportunity to display and sell their artwork.

She is a well versed artist with many different skills, though where she shines is in drawing which has helped me in my understanding in the concepts of light and shadow, gesture and figure drawing, as well as how different strokes and the effects they carry, whether using graphite, charcoal, pastels, and other mediums. It all came to use in my college application process for developing my portfolio as I was accepted into a variety of colleges and universities across the country

Ms Goldenbaum has been by far the best artistic navigator. Not only has she taught me how to stroke a brush, she taught me how to really tap in with my mind and become one with the art itself. If it wasn’t for Ms Goldenbaum, I wouldn’t know as much as I do now about things like abstract art , water colors and primary colors. Shouts to Ms G!

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!
