Had a great lesson with David, Decided to purchase a few hour one time lesson to paint a picture with my wife. David did a great job. I was very happy how he accommodated us and the time he put in before the lesson.

I Highly Recommend Talin. She is a wonderful art teacher for all levels of students. She is patient, fun and always helps bring the students vision to life. You will be amazed at the artwork you will produce from spending time learning from Talin.

Talin is very creative, and such a good teacher! I have several pieces of her work.
Rhoda
Talin is an incredible teacher. She taught my granddaughter, who had no painting experience, over Zoom and now my granddaughter is painting AMAZING things. She has only had 4 lessons and has learned so much that you would think that she was an adult who had been painting her whole life.

Talin is patient, enthusiastic and very talented and if there were a 100 star rating, that's what she deserves!!

I meditate to create. Do you?

Nope. The intention is to sit with your canvas. Think. Foster those thoughts into a Magical Intuitive Experience.

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Liberal Art with a massive array of Art Classes. A Master Degree in Fine Arts Education. I teach art to high school students and to many others. The pleasure is all mine since 2008. Doesn't matter your age. What matters is your ability to express yourself through acrylic paint.

Crafting your Fine Art is critical! However, I am here to facilitate YOUR learning to your process, YOUR Desires, YOUR Whimsical Spirit.

I founded a Program called, "Meditate to Create: a unique way to Paint." If you believe that candles and meditation could be a part of your process, GREAT! If you want straight forward lessons, I have you covered. I used to work for a paint & sip company which started out my massive amounts of paintings. I didn't think I could paint what they were asking but I JUMPED and waalaa, I am a real ...

One of the best experiences I’ve had in a long time. Made it super easy for someone who doesn’t paint very often and made me want to continue taking classes and getting better. What a great time!

With 12+ years of experience, I have a long history of practicing visual art. Drawing and painting are some of my favorite practices, and I love helping others take what they see and express that through their own hands. Together we'll explore what it means to perceive and express through creative visual means!

I really enjoyed lessons with Emilie! She is well organized and has a clear lesson plan for each session, with follow up homework and exercises. I learned so much about technique and the "how to" of drawing. Everything she put together was appropriate for my level and included exercises that challenged me to improve. I could tell Emilie is well trained and skilled at drawing. She is also very nice and I felt relaxed and comfortable with her. Her studio is warm and inviting. Overall it was a great experience and I am looking forward to taking some additional lessons with Emilie!
Ava C.
So happy to have found Emilie! I work for a family with a four year old child who is extremely engaged in art and we wanted to find private lessons for her. Emilie has been extremely accommodating and very intentional in making sure we were ready for our first lesson. Will be scheduling more lessons and look forward to her being apart of my charges explorative learning!

I have been teaching acrylic painting and other media for over fourteen years. I have experience working with students from all walks of life and art backgrounds- I love beginners! I have the maturity to intuit the student's needs on a level that someone fresh out of art school just doesn't...Curriculum is based on the individual student's desires but is heavily focused on: color theory, texture, correct proportion exercises, perspective, and design theory.

About Melanie

I take great joy in bringing art to the surface that the student didn't even know they had within them! Creating art is mainly about confidence, and I build that with each person, one on one. As they gain confidence, the techniques needed to create meaningful and engaging art come more easily. I ha
