I am a teaching artist with 15+ years of instructional experience. As a NYS-certified art teacher and MFA recipient in painting and drawing, I am qualified to work with any age or ability level.

Whether you're a parent looking to quench your child's thirst to be creative, or an adult interested in taking your art practice to the next level, I will be able to help any student hone their skills and reach their goals.

Most importantly, I strive to instill my love for making and appreciating art in all of my students, and cater to their individual needs and skill levels through a progressive teaching model.

About Matthew M.

I'm an artist based in Greenpoint, Brooklyn and make work that investigates the painting process. I earned a BS in art Education from Hofstra University and hold an MFA in Painting from CUNY Queens College. My work has been included in various exhibitions around the United States including Sardine (NY), One River School (NY), Heliopolis (NY), Ex Ovo Projects, (TX), Matteawan Gallery (NY), Gallery 21 (VA), Centotto (NY), Transmitter Gallery (NY), Guest Spot @ the ReInstitute (MD), Gallery North (NY), Denny Gallery (NY), Brooklyn Fire Proof Gallery (NY), Storefront Bushwick (NY), the Austrian Cultural Forum (NY) amongst others. Most recently my work was been published in the 12th Issue of Art Maze Magazine. I am a frequent organizer of events and shows and co-founded Small Black Door, an experimental art space in Ridgewood, Queens (210-2013).

I love teaching art because it allows to me connect with students of all ages, and skill levels. This keeps me on my toes and compels me to constantly adjust my teaching methods and approaches.
