Lesson Details

Abstract Painting

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I have art in galleries around the world. I have been teaching students for several years. Abstract painting is unique because you need to use your imagination in a different type of way. If you're ready to dive in and get out of your own way and get creative, I can help you to find that secret place in your brain where the creativity hides and let it roam free. We can learn techniques, and learn how to get inspiration. I can also teach what tools to use and why. Additionally, if you're interested in exploring mixed media, that is one of my favorite things. If you'd like to learn to create digital paintings or physical paintings, I can teach either.

I love art and I am passionate about making things beautiful. That spills over into Graphic design, Painting and more: I have 20+ years as a graphic designer, photographer 10+ years, artist/painter and I even ran a print shop for several years so I know what you need to prep files for printing, photography, page layout, web and much more so that your files meet industry standards. If your a fast learner, I can go at a faster pace, if you need more time, I am fine with that too. My goal is for you to learn well, advance and put the skills I teach you to use. Then we will layer that info and move on. I'll incorporate reviewing what we worked on before in the future lessons. I want you to be able to put to practice what I teach you so that you can successfully manage on your own in that area.

I love being outside, I love the water and get inspired by nature. I am not a camping type person but could sleep outside nightly (on a screened in porch, LOL). I love to enjoy life and want you to enjoy learning something new as well.

Nicole professionally layed out, designed, and printed the obituary of my husband using Adobe Photoshop. Her helpful, yet sensitive suggestions regarding picture arrangements on the pages of the obituary were appreciated. She was timely and easy to work with. I highly recommend her as an instructor.
