Hello! I am delighted that you have an interest in learning how to draw, and I am excited to teach you! After receiving my BFA in Drawing through Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design, I then went on to study in Leicester England. There, I completed my MA in Art Museum and Gallery Studies with a focus on museum education. Since then, I have been teaching art and languages both online and in-person.

Our lessons can either focus entirely on techniques, or we can incorporate an understanding of art history and a variety of subject matter while still keeping a technical focus on crafting foundational skills (shading techniques, perspective, contour drawings, self-portraits, still life drawing, and more).

At the moment, lessons will all be virtual, but that doesn't mean we need to stay indoors. I encourage venturing outside (safely) if that is of interest to you.

About Pia L.


Welcome to my virtual classroom! My name is Pia, and I have been teaching Art since 2009 and English and Italian since 2017. I thoroughly enjoy teaching and take great pride in what I do.

I have my MA from University of Leicester in Art Museum and Gallery Studies. I have also received a BFA in Drawing from Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design. I have exhibited my artwork in galleries across Milwaukee, Chicago, and online virtual galleries.

For languages, I have taught courses both online and in person. I have traditionally taught art in person (In studios, museums, and galleries). However, I am happy to begin offering online courses, as well.

I am excited to help you gain new skills, whether that be for the English language, drawing, or Italian for beginners. Feel free to send me a message if you have any questions. Otherwise, I look forward to meeting you!

Pia is great! I really feel my pronunciation has improved quite a bit and I love how varied the lessons are.

I used to take lessons with Pia when she was living in Milan, Italy. She was very patient and always encouraged me to keep going. Thank you for all of your help, Pia!

It is always fun having class with Pia. She did a great job helping me to speak with more confidence and listen to conversational English. She's a very patient teacher!

Pia is a terrific teacher and has helped me improve my English skills and also my confidence with speaking. She is patient and always offers encouragement. I enjoy how easily the conversation flows and how she always keeps it relevant to the lesson and courseware. I have even asked her to listen when I needed to practice my presentations for work, and she offered excellent pointers and edited my draft I had written. Learning English with Pia has been a wonderful experience for me and I highly recommend her to all.
