Drawing

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I teach drawing at all levels of experience.

For beginners,I start with the fundamentals of looking and rendering, including blind contour, perspective, and methods for seeing two-dimensionally. We start with graphite and charcoal, and work towards other mediums.

For advanced students, I provide critique, feedback, and technique refinement.

I have experience with all types of media, scale, and technique, at a collegiate and professional level.

Maurissa is clear, adaptable, and encouraging, which are helping me break down my own learning blocks and find ways in to get excited about a new challenge!

I highly recommend Maurissa for oil painting. She has taught me so much in only a few months. The lessons are targeted and efficient. She assesses where I need work and gives me exercises to practice on outside of class. Also, the location itself is an amazing building.

Maurissa is an excellent professional art teacher. She is very supportive and takes time to explain or show you how to do a technique when you get flustered. I recommend Maurissa highly to anyone who wants to learn how to paint or draw. She is also very flexible with her schedule which great for my busy work schedule.
