I am a fine artist, and I am an art lover! I have taught art to kids and adults of all levels, and I have studied art for many years.
I love drawing and painting, going to museums, talking about art, and participating in group art shows. I draw and paint from life every day. I can help you to make your drawings more life-like, improve your color sense, or paint a scene that you picture in your imagination.

About Tabitha
I am an art lover. I paint and like to illustrate books for my niece and nephews. I love teaching all ages, especially kids. I used to teach art classes and summer art camps with grade school aged kids. Recently, I have been a teaching assistant for undergraduate-level art students.
I am especially good at guiding people through drawing and painting from life. I have lots of examples of my art I am willing to provide. I have also studied art theory and history, and I am a good writer.
I'm open to doing different sorts of lessons, depending on what your learning style is. I can guide you in a step-by-step process with a live demonstration, or I can look at your artwork and critique it for you. If you are just starting out as an artist, I can give you an introduction to the medium you're going to be working with. Also, I can suggest all
kinds of artists for you to look at.

Are you interested in learning how to paint people? I'm a world renowned oil painter willing to share my valuable experience and vast knowledge with eager students of all levels and ages. I structure my lessons in a practical and effective manner with a strong foundation in drawing and classical technique. My unique and practical method is easy to follow and quickly builds confidence and skill.

All you need is a palette, a canvas, 7 colors, some inexpensive brushes, and medium.

About Eric
Eric Armusik, (b. 1973) paints classical figurative art that reflects the spirit and passionate storytelling of the old masters. His paintings are a declaration to the dramatic power of representational art. The origin of his inspiration does not lie in academia, but rather his childhood, surrounded by the vivid paintings he saw in Gothic cathedrals as a child. Eric received a BFA in Painting and Drawing from Pennsylvania State University and a minor in an art history. He is recognized by the Art Renewal Center as an Associate Living Master. Currently, he’s an Artist Ambassador for Jerry’s Artarama and regularly demos and reviews their art materials.

Eric Armusik is an outstanding classical oil painter as well as an experienced oil painting tutor and teacher. Years ago, my daughter, her boy friend and I fortunately had a very good and very successful oil painting classes with him at his home. He did a very good job in his oil painting teaching program and we did benefit a lot from his patient demonstration with all the details. He is a fantastic oil painting artist and trustworthy skillful oil painting teacher so that it really worth for joining any of his programs. I highly recommend Eric Armusik to any of potential students for enriching their individual oil painting career.

Moe is a good instructor, he has a lot of experience with teaching basics and intermediate topics in the fine arts. Not only is he familiar with traditional painting and techniques, but his practice itself is very innovative in inspiring you how to harness your own skills and seeing artmaking in your own way.

I have taught acrylic painting to large groups, and can walk you through a painting in a similar fashion!

About Amber
I am a professional freelance artist, and owner of Leola Studios. I have been doing custom artwork for over 15 years, and have several contract jobs with businesses on my resume. I have an Associates Degree in Fine Arts/Animation from Academy of Art University.

I specialize in photo realism, and 90% of the private commissions I get are portraits. However, I work in a broad range of styles and mediums, from line work to abstract to sketch, with charcoal to paint to clay. I love expanding my knowledge and trying new things, but above all I love creating!! I feel that imagination and expression through art/music/literature are crucial to a person's development, and this is something I pass on to my daughters, and frequently fundraise for, in an attempt to keep art programs in our schools.

I love meeting new people and sharing my knowledg
e, so after having so many people ask me to show them how to draw, I began teaching. I've taught one on one, and classes large in size. I have also taught young children, up to age 98! I am very patient and don't mind a slew of questions! I want to help students become the best at their craft.

Art is my passion and so important in our world, with proven benefits! I'd like to think with teaching, I'm helping to keep it alive, even if just in my small way.

I have known Amber many years and can attest to her artistic capabilities. I have sat in on two of her painting classes; she was great at walking us through the piece step-by-step, and was very patient with all our questions. She laughed with us and made it fun! I would recommend her to anyone and look forward to learning from her again!

In our lessons, you will paint from life, exploring composition, concept, and mood through creative assignments. We will train your eye as you paint still lifes, landscapes, portraits, figures, abstractions, and beyond! I will show you examples of historical and contemporary painting as we practice a range of techniques. You will gain confidence through practice and experimentation as you work towards developing your own style as an artist! And most importantly, you’ll have fun! I can’t wait to work with you!

I’m passionate about art history and color theory. In our lessons, not only will you learn how to draw and paint, you will also learn the cultural history around the subject.

Kathy is very patient in understanding areas that needs to be worked on. I didn't know anything about drawing but Kathy structured the curriculum in a way that worked best for me without being overwhelming. Starting from the technical aspects of drawing to the conceptual aspects such as mark making and what drawing meant in a fine art context, she has got you covered. She is very professional, kind and works with you to get the best out of you.

Whether you are wanting to learn how to paint using acrylic paints because it is something you have always wanted to learn or you are looking to learn new techniques, I am here to guide you! Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. Not only will you be painting in no time, but you will be building a strong foundation of color theory, drawing techniques, hand sight coordination techniques, and more. I have been painting for over fifthteen years in a variety of scales including large murals to small canvases. I am as eager to share basic to advance techniques as you are to learn. Self expression and painting techniques are a tool nobody can take from you once you have learned and embraced the art of painting. I have a degree in Art Practice from UC Berkeley and have taught 2nd grade students and adults as well. Let's get painting!

About Belinda
I am a professional working artist and I am also an elementary piano teacher for an after school program here in Riverside. I obtained a degree in Art Practice from UC Berkeley where I specialized in multimedia installations that included large scale paintings and sculptures. Due to the versatility in my own work from large to very small scale paintings I have acquired techniques and skills for every scale in between.
I am a strong believer in self expression and visual literacy which gets stronger with the formulation of concepts one builds through inspiration for each painting. I enjoy teaching and learning what my students' interests are and what motivates them. I can help you learn specific skills for abstract paintings to portraits.
Through research I have also learned that individuals benefit greatly from cre
ative freedom thus performing better in other academic subjects, learning healthy ways of expression, and through the therapeutic effects of painting.
If you are looking to work with someone who loves what they do, who is patient, motivational, and can teach you basic to advanced skills give me a call and let's get painting!

Release your inner artist and allow yourself to explore the art of abstract expressionism.
Colors have been scientifically proven to alter moods and creating art can be therapeutic and an excellent way to release.
Sometimes, however, creating can be daunting when faced with preconceived notions of what the finished piece should look like.
If you've always wanted to paint but didn't want to do something cookie cutter or are experiencing the equivalent of writer's block when staring at that blank canvas-- abstract expressionism is the way to go.
Abstract expressionism allows you the freedom to just flow and release.
You'll learn basic technique as you explore and express yourself including how to properly hang, exhibit and care for your work.
I'm an exhibiting artist with years of experience in the field.

About Jennifer
I'm a professional artist and photographer.

My current disciplines are painting (acrylic primarily but also body-paint), photography (digital and b&w film) and mixed media.

I believe everyone is an artist and it's just a matter of exploring mediums until you find what's right for you and continue developing.

I love to nurture and facilitate that journey for others because art is therapeutic, it helps keep our wits sharp and it is a wonderful way to express, explore, connect and even make a positive difference.
