About Liz
As a 30-year award winning professional artist my background painting and illustration. I hold a BFA from the Academy of Art University and USF.
Private classes are for all ages. I will guide each student through a variety of art processes in a friendly & engaging environment.
Classes introduce students to art in its many forms and traditions such as drawing, painting, watercolor, printmaking, mixed-media and collage. I can tailor an art program for a student’s particular interests. My specialty is helping artists find their unique visual voice using various art techniques and projects. I also can work with children and adults who'd benefit from art therapy.
I am compassionate, enthusiastic, easy-going with a friendly attitude that helps to create an environment where students can relax and feel comfortable.
I have a flexible schedu
le allowing me to work with students as needed.

I recently had a beginniner's acrylic lesson with Liz at her studio. The lesson was totally custom tailored to my requests, which was exactly what I wanted. I look forward to more lessons with Liz. She is a gifted teacher and artist.

Liz demystifies the art-making process and believes so fully in a student's ability to take steps forward that you start to believe it too. She makes art-marking a joy by first helping her students see and then helping them begin to build skills in a manageable way. Liz is fantastic at helping her students find the balance between play and structure, so that mastery of technique grows alongside creative exploration. She connects immediately with young people, helping them to both see their creative potential and dare to stretch and develop their skills.

About Jessica
I am a professional artist, writer, scholar, and professor. I graduated from Tyler School of Art in Painting and Art History and University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Fine Arts in Painting. I also hold a Ph.D. in Philosophy, Art Theory, and Aesthetics from Institute for Doctoral in the Visual Arts.

I am now working on a graphic novel and animated short film (writing, animating, producing, and creating original music). Both explore philosophical, anthropological, and art historical themes.

My students can expect to improve week to week in their artistic technique. Every artist is unique; I teach students to let go and begin to really see the world around them and inside of them. We apply foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual vision. I can help any student draw with freedom, confidence, and expression. 

I teach art to students of all different ages and experience levels.

I studied painting, art history, philosophy, and theory. I have taught all arts, design, and humanities courses to children, high school, college, and graduate school.

I can teach students to draw, paint, write, and pursue classical excellence, to learn how to play draw realistically or in an abstract manner, or both depending on the goals and preference of the student. 


I love to mentor students who want to become effective, dynamic visionaries. 
My personal passion is contemporary art but I firmly believe that great technique is essential to any and every style. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better artist!
