Students can expect to focus on learning a good foundation. I am familiar with several different approaches when working with acrylic paints. They include but are not limited to; direct painting, graphic approach, building up of layers using glazes and dry brushing. I also sensitive to the surfaces acrylic is used on; paper, canvas, fabric, metal and wood are just a few.

The first session with Sandy went very well. She was able to ascertain quickly the level of my daughter's skill and determine a course of action that will take her to the next level of her art. We are excited to see the result of the remaining sessions.

Private Acrylic Painting Teacher

Hi! Are you frustrated with muddy and poor color choices in your paintings, the inaccurate drawing of your subject, and overall mediocrity? I will help you overcome the fear and frustration of painting with some sound color theory and drawing methods. You can learn to apply colors that are bold and fresh. As artists who continually learn, I believe there is no wrong in exploring colors. When we continue to paint, we learn what didn't work and apply what does work. That is how we improve! The more we practice in small steps, the greater our success!

About Rita

I have been teaching and painting since 1983. I am also a professional mural artist and found that my painting improved many years after art school. I was frustrated back then and painting seemed so complicated! Is that you? I figured out, with my own research, the freedom and fun in painting. Y

Brendan is a lovely instructor. He provides a very casual experience but without skipping on the technical know how.

I was a more advanced student of his, so at times it felt like more a a collaboration, but i was still able to learn from him.

Age-Appropriate areas of instruction include:
-Painting Techniques such as Layering, Mixing, Washes, and Glazing.
-Understanding Composition.
-Understanding Color Theory: Opposites or “complementary colors” on the color wheel; Painting with medium tones, so that highlights and shadows can be applied easily. Using multiple colors equals “depth” and “interest.”

Whether or not you are new to painting or want to get back into it after many years away and just need some feedback and a new perspective I am here to help. I have been teaching painting for 20 years and I’ve worked with students of all ages, from young adults to retirees. I teach painting using the classical method of observation (meaning, based on what they see). You will also learn how do use color as it reflects the temperature of the light and shadows like the impressionists. I will show you a lot of different artists for inspiration and to teach you how to glean the best from history. I recommend working from direct observation at first (a still life rather than a photo of a still life). You can expect to learn a lot about color for me, about the structure of light and shadow and how it helps create realism but also compose a really great looking paintings. I adjust my approach to teaching as I get to know each student and what learning style connects best with them.

I had a great time and learned a lot painting with Sharon. This was my first painting lesson. She is patient, helpful and very passionate about watercolors. She is also very knowledgeable and answered all my questions.
Sharon will tailor your lesson to your goals. You do not need to be an artist to enjoy these lessons.
Jennie
Sharon was my introduction to watercolor painting! Her suggestions were very helpful. Her depth of knowledge and experience were stimulating and lead me to read and research artists and concepts. She was patient with this novice, and I look forward to more lessons.
Huan W.
I held a virtual team painting event and invited Sharon to be our tutor. My team has a tight budget, but Sharon managed to fit the painting kit under the budget & the paint was high quality! She also made a video helping us prepare for the painting event: how to stain the palette, how to wash the brushes and how to coat the canvas.

In the painting event, we had a large group (~15 people), so it’s very difficult to coordinate. People had different questions every 5 mins, or people asked the same questions, or you had to wait for other people. Sharon was very patient to answer everyone’s questions. We even went overtime but Sharon was very nice that she continued finishing the painting with us.

All my teammates produced very nice paintings! Majority of them have never painted before, but they created beautiful paintings under Sharon’s guidance. Thank you Sharon!
