As my student you will learn very important basic to intermediate foundation knowledge of the painting process. This involves Color theory, canvas preparations (wood, Canvas and other substrate choices), Brush selections, Mediums and thinning, Paint storage and reusing. We will work on transferring ideas from still life or sketch to canvas. We will cover brush stroke effects, blending, highlighting and work processes for an efficient and most importantly fun workflow.

Exciting lessons are curated by me for each student based on their specific goals and areas they wish to improve all while aiding in liberating their creative spark. The focus of my inspirational classes can be color theory, mixing, shade matching, exercises and techniques with paints. With my 10+ years of painting experience I help you discover the perfect medium (watercolor/acrylic/oil) for your art! Additionally, your skills in one and two point perspective will be developed while learning about proportions, composition, and rendering, all while having fun expressing yourself creatively. Should you desire to learn more of the historical ways of painting, my years studying in Florence, Italy have provided me with that expertise as well. My goal is to facilitate a fun and inspiring atmosphere for you to be able to create your very own completed works of art!

About Cassidy

Art has always been a liberating source of expression and joy for me. I find it fulfilling to facilitate this for my students and see their passion for the process of creation grow along with their skills. I am excited to meet with you and help cultivate your own personal style and hopefully inspir

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.

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.

Practicing Art teacher with over 15 years experience. Being a practicing art teacher means I practice what I preach! You can draw inspiration from my daily works and know that the skills and techniques I am teaching you will lead to a greater discipline in painting, drawing and conceptual works. I pride myself in connection and being able to know what to tweak and work on because I have been there myself, through self taught methods and a formal art education with my degree in fine art. I want my students to reach their artistic potential and aspirations while having a wonderful time!

Teaching only watercolor for over 35 consecutive years, I am known as the Crazy Watercolor Lady because I am so crazy about watercolor! lol I absolutely love the medium of watercolor and have so much fun sharing it with my students, watching them grow to advanced work.

I developed a wonderful method of teaching watercolor, taking my beginner students to advanced work very quickly. You can even trace what you'll paint. I taught myself watercolor which helps me understand what my students know, and what they don't know. I teach any subject, such as, portraits of people or pets, landscapes, animals, cityscapes, flowers, abstract, etc. It doesn't matter what subject it is, because it's about light and dark shapes and color, which applies to every subject you paint. It is also about the wonderful techniques of watercolor, such as, salting, spattering, using saran wrap, making skippies, blooms, tickling an edge, fingering, bleeding out, etc. I also teach how to paint on Yupo, a ...

My daughter has started recurring lessons with this teacher.

With Roya, I've never felt that way. The lessons are designed in a way that I felt as if I'm progressing as a artist. Do yourself a favor, and sign up. You will not regret it. :)"

Very impressed with his organization. He went at just the right speed for me and we actually made good progress. I'm looking forward to the next lesson!"
