I decided to take painting lessons from Morgan because while I have experience in drawing, I was a complete beginner when it comes to painting. Now after just a couple months of biweekly lessons, I feel like I have a good grasp on the fundamentals of oil painting. I've already painted several pieces that I really like. Morgan has been very supportive and knowledgeable the whole way through. I'm very glad I decided to take lessons from her.

Oil paintings have been regarded as one of the most beautiful art forms throughout history. To paint like one of the masters can seem out of reach, but anyone can paint with excellence! We will start at your current skill level, even if you've never even painted before. We'll learn color mixing, how to create depth, and different methods of layering paint to create different effects. Whether you would like to create a masterpiece, or would just like to paint some paintings for your friends and family, we can get there together! Contact me so we can get you creating beauty on canvas!

There is a complexity in the teaching of art that includes giving students the knowledge of different techniques in art, as well as teaching the process of creating, and the process of finding their own way in painting. Teaching art, for me, is not only a pleasure, but also a wonderful way to exchange my personal vision of life with my students.
I have 15 years of teaching experience in my studio and high education levels. I am a working artist myself and know the steps my students could take to study painting and express themselves in Art. The students will learn the elemental composition, color theory, use of brushes, different techniques, and movement in painting.
I teach beginners to intermediate artist in my studio and online.

Tim is very knowledgeable about anatomy. He always started on time which was a plus. He provided some guidance but it didn’t feel like a lesson and more of a demo. He communicates pretty well but I would suggest asking students about things they like rather than making assumptions based on gender.
Crystal
He took time to find out what I was interested in learning and answered all my questions. He gave a great demonstration too.

Whether or not you are new to painting or want to get back into it after many years away and just need some feedback and a new perspective I am here to help. I have been teaching painting for 20 years and I’ve worked with students of all ages, from young adults to retirees. I teach painting using the classical method of observation (meaning, based on what they see). You will also learn how to use color as it reflects the temperature of the light and shadows like the impressionists. I will show you a lot of different artists for inspiration and to teach you how to glean the best from history. I recommend working from direct observation at first (a still life rather than a photo of a still-life).

With oil paint, there are some underpainting techniques to explore to get a really solid layout and to establish the values. This is an advantage to oil because it is easier to work out the values before adding color. Next, over the top, you can do a very painterly technique and have ...

Had my first lesson and I've already learned so much! The lesson was informative and Sharon also gave me a clear idea of what to practice in the meantime. I am confident that my drawing skills will improve!

I had a great time and learned a lot painting with Sharon. This was my first painting lesson. She is patient, helpful and very passionate about watercolors. She is also very knowledgeable and answered all my questions.
Sharon will tailor your lesson to your goals. You do not need to be an artist to enjoy these lessons.

Sharon was my introduction to watercolor painting! Her suggestions were very helpful. Her depth of knowledge and experience were stimulating and lead me to read and research artists and concepts. She was patient with this novice, and I look forward to more lessons.
