I've been instructing small and large groups of painters for several years both beginners and experienced. I love to see people get creative and I can help you too. I am an expert painter with works all over the world. If you're new to painting, as long you have a little artistic talent (even if undiscovered) I can teach you to paint. I can teach brush techniques and various subject matters - Abstract, impressionist, still life, portrait (intermediate only) and landscapes/seascapes and even human figures. If you'd like to learn to create digital paintings or traditional paintings, I can teach either.

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 am learning so much with Sharon! She is encouraging and helpful in her feedback, knowledgeable, talented, and has a warm and caring, presence.

My lesson with Sharon was a fantastic start. I'm not entirely new to art but I am fairly new to acrylic painting. She tailored our first lesson to start me with a solid foundation. Very excited to set up my next lesson!

Sharon is the best art teacher I’ve ever had. She excels in explaining a concept verbally and then showing visual examples of it. With her positive and encouraging teaching style, Sharon guided me to better myself as a beginning artist. Her teaching technique is uncomplicated and easy to follow. When you take a class with her, not a single session goes by without learning something new. Without reservation, I would recommend taking an art class with Sharon.

As a teacher for 7 years one of my favorite things is bringing the arts into teaching. I've taught infants through adults, beginners and advanced, and the one secret I can absolutely tell you about learning, is if you are happy then you are going to learn a lot more! I'm excited to get to know you and make you smile!

Let me tell you a little about the Lessons I have to offer. I have specific curriculums for several categories such as Landscapes, Abstract, Still Life, and Portraits. One of my classes that is trending right now is "Flourish and Bloom" which a where we create an acrylic painting on canvas of a flower wreath with an inspirational word in the center. I've got pictures below if you'd like to take a look!

Loren taught French to my eight year old daughter. My daughter picked up basic vocabulary just in three months and she enjoyed the lessons so much. Loren taught French using songs and some fun activities making it interesting for the child. Loren is a very kind and patient teacher.
