I've been teaching painting for 15 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of acrylic, oil, watercolor and mixed media painting and created their own beautiful masterpieces in landscape, abstract, still life and other subjects! Within the first few lessons, you'll start understanding the elements of art such as light, shadows, perspective etc. and as time goes on, you'll be able to paint like a pro! I love working with students of all experience levels and see them leave with their hearts and souls painted into their masterpieces.

About Renata S.

I teach a variety of subjects ranging from oil, acrylic watercolor, drawing to cooking and baking even sourdough bread baking.

I have been teaching painting for over 10 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of acrylic, oil, watercolor and mixed media painting and created their own beautiful masterpieces in landscape, abstract, still life and other subjects! Within the first few lessons, you'll start understanding the elements of art such as light, shadows, perspective etc. and as time goes on, you'll be able to paint like a pro! I love working with students of all experience levels.

I also teach cooking from scratch with the best ingredients. Be it Asian, Mediterranean, Middle-Eastern cuisine; I teach them all and more. I even teach to bake bread with my own home-grown sourdough starter. So, please join me for a fantastic session and learn some basics or other skills that only chefs know. Once we have cooked a delicious meal, we sit together and enjoy it over a glass of wine or whatever you like. As an option you may take home the remaining portions, usually enough for 3-5 days. But you don't have to. You only pay for the food you eat which is a fraction of a restaurant meal and yet much better.

Renata was simply amazing
She made a wonderful meal for us, all while sharing some great cooking tips and stories.
The Salmon was marinated/seasoned and cooked to perfection. The Rice, Kale Salad, and Fresh Bruschetta with French Bread were such a hit, everyone had clean plates by the end of the demo.
Renata came with everything that she needed to prepare the food and even set up/cleaned up everything with no interruption to the rest of our office.
The ones who didn’t participate couldn’t even tell what she had prepared, saying that they didn’t smell any after smell.
Once they learned that we ate Fish/Salmon… Complete Shock.. hehe
Renata is an amazing teacher who is very well versed in culinary arts, she knows many tips and tricks for creating wonderful, flavorful meals.. Thank you for everything, Renata!

Great instructor for me and 13 year old son. We cooked beef Bolognese. He enjoyed the class and the conversation with Renata as we ate a delicious and aromatic meal.

Our first "lesson" was more of a "get to know each other" and "painting goals" lesson in my office.

Renata has a fantastic life story and based on our mutual first interview and philosophy comparison I believe she will be an excellent teacher to help me reach my artistic goals!

I look forward to much further work and discussion with her!

Having never taken a watercolor lesson before, I did not know where to begin. Renata showed patience, expertise, and humor as she helped me acquire the materials I needed and explained the basic procedures. Her demonstrations and personal assistance were exceptional. I highly recommend her as an outstanding instructor.

I have had the pleasure of having an art class with Renata Sharman for the last few months. I have learned so much from her instructions and her demonstrations. She is extremely knowledgeable about art and a gifted teacher. She also teaches cooking classes and is a talented photographer. I would highly recommend her to anyone who desires to improve his/her painting skills and enjoy it at the same time. Renata is delightful. A side note – Renata speaks 7 languages!
