Lesson Details

Acrylic Painting

Levels Taught:
Advanced
Love art but never thought you could draw or paint? I believe that anyone can create works of art, if you learn how and practice. With my help, you will learn the foundation of drawing, as well as techniques of painting in Graphite, Watercolor, and Acrylic paint. All this while tailoring everything to your personal needs and tastes!

Curious about my background? I have been drawing since I was 4 years old, received my Bachelor's Degree in Media Arts and Animation, then went on to work on my Master's Degree in Painting.

Teaches students:
Ages 5+

Teaching since:
2018

I am a professional artist, board game designer, and animator. I graduated from the Art Institute of Houston with a Bachelors in Media Arts and Animation and am working towards my Masters Degree in Painting.

My students can expect to improve with every week in not only your drawing skills, but also your painting techniques. Every artist is different and I will strive to bring out your inner artist that I know you have! You have a voice, I will teach you to tear down your artistic walls and unlock your individual expression.

I work in several different mediums, including, but not limited to, Graphite, Watercolor, Acrylic, Digital, Ballpoint pen, and Sidewalk Chalk. I have been drawing since I was 4 and taught myself. At the age of 14, I went with my family to Disney World, where I sat in on a drawing lesson by one of the artists of 'The Lion King.' It made such an impact on me, that I still remember what he drew, Zazu.

I teach art students of all different ages and experience levels. I can teach you to draw using graphite pencils as well as paint in different mediums, including watercolor and acrylic. I love to mentor students with a passion, as that is where some of our best work comes from!

I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become an artist!
