As my student you will learn very important basic to intermediate foundation knowledge of the painting process. This involves Color theory, canvas preparations (wood, Canvas and other substrate choices), Brush selections, Mediums and thinning, Paint storage and reusing. We will work on transferring ideas from still life or sketch to canvas. We will cover brush stroke effects, blending, highlighting and work processes for an efficient and most importantly fun workflow.

About Joe
Hello, my name is Joe. I am excited when I learn of new potential artists. My skills are well rounded and focused. I can teach you in many media applications and art forms. I am able to teach from basic drawing techniques to full Portrait art, Film & Digital Portrait / Fashion Photography and Image Retouching/ Manipulation. My forte' are Drawings, Acrylic Paintings, Charcoal Drawings, Photography and Digital image manipulation. I have been published in Art and Fashion magazines for my art. My goal is to teach you how to see the world around us as a canvas and cull your visions from it and recreate it to your desires. My goal is to have you gain a deep understanding of yourself as an artist and how to translate that onto/into your media of choice.

Lessons would be individualized to focus on areas that need the most guidance.

I have been painting for several years and I have studied many techniques.

About Melissa
I have been teaching since 2006 on a variety of topics. I graduated with an BA from the University of Wisconsin. My degree is in History with and emphasis on East Asian history.

I've taught all age groups from age 2 up to retirees. My teaching experience includes one-on-one and group classes in a variety of settings. I've taught corporate classes, private lessons, small groups, and traditional classroom lessons.

We have a student-centric philosophy of learning. Lessons are generally relaxed and designed to work towards accomplishing student determined goals. While all students will study similar fundamentals regarding technique, theory, and performance, every lesson is as different as every person. Special focus on topics like music theory, self-accompaniment, composition, song writing, and home recording are available as well.


What are your personal goals? We'll tell you what you need to do to get there, and help you take the steps to achieve your aspirations.

Lessons with small children are more focused on just having fun while developing a good musical foundation, but we prefer for them to have as much personal ownership of their lesson as possible.

Emily has really helped my daughter's drawing capability in a short amount of time. I can see an improvement in just 3 lessons! She is also very friendly and my 13 year old feels safe and comfortable around her. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to improve their drawing skills.

Our time together will include step by step demonstrations, one on one individual easel time, and fun exercises to learn how to loosen up and create bold, colorful paintings.
I will teach you how to layer with transparent and opaque Acrylics, and how to keep your paints from getting muddy.
I will show you how to take an ordinary photograph, and use artistic license to paint from the heart by infusing clean, bold color, loose brush strokes, and beautiful lighting.
We will discuss color mixing, composition, brushwork, and more. Learn to see "Impressionistically," and explore to ability to "suggest" rather than "render" the subject.

I've only had one class with Chris, but hope to take several more. Her lectures were good and not too long. Her instructions were excellent, and she gave very helpful critiques, along with encouragement. I really enjoyed the group exercise where we had several minutes of painting on everyone's small canvas. Just a great learning experience.

I have taught over 500 students how to paint! Each painting lesson is tailored to your interest and where you want to develop skill. My schooling background is in figure painting, modern painting techniques, color theory and composition. I have been trained by masterful painters from all over the world and look forward to sharing all that I have learned with you.

About Megan
*Online Lessons have special pricing - Please contact me about online lesson pricing *

I am drawn to the timelessness of the human figure as the focal point of a painting. I find people to be my biggest source of inspiration. This appreciation extends also to the students I am honored to teach. I never quite know where the art class will take us and what skills will be honed to match the inspiration the student has, but on many occasions we both are wonderfully surprised by the results. I design each lesson to inspire and encourage the student . The techniques will come with time but it takes inspiration to get there!

I had three other painting instructors before I came upon Megan's class and I will say she is the best painting teacher I have had and that does not come easy because I am a professional sculptor that has taught and taken many classes in the art field. Simply put Megan is at the top of her game and her style of teaching is one that most anybody will benefit from her classes.

30 plus years as an artist and art instructor/ art therapist. I meet each student where they are at; emphasizing creative expression while at the same time fostering skills that support that. I can instruct in watercolors, acrylics, as well as oil painting and pastels.

About Pamela
I am very experienced working with children and teens. I have been a credentialed art teacher/ therapist for many years. I believe that making art is a joyful experience and can open up creative self expression. Plus, its fun! I love sketching, doodling, painting, and mixed media.

I have a private practice as an art therapist (specializing in children with special needs and autism), but I can put on my instructor hat and focus on skill building in drawing, painting and mixed media.

I love to help students create their own unique style and I do not judge or critique harshly, but gently show students the steps involved.

I have been teaching art professionally for nearly 7 years. I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Studio Art and Education and pride myself in helping my students excel in the studio arts. I have taught students ranging in age from 4 years old to adults. I am ready to meet you where YOU are at in your artistic journey and help you reach your personal goals. I want you to enjoy your artistic experience and create art that is unique and special to you!

About Kristen
I am a professional art teacher, currently working on my 7th year of teaching. I graduated from Sam Houston State University with my Bachelor's Degree in Studio Art and Education. I am currently teaching in a public elementary school, but have also taught high school art and Pre-K through 8th grade at a private school.

I have taught private lessons, group lessons, and painting parties for people of all ages! I have taught several students with high functioning autism and other special needs. I believe that art is a subject where anyone can be successful when given the tools and techniques.
My main goal with any student I teach is for that student to enjoy their artistic experience and become the very best artist they can be! No two artists are the same, and I encourage my students to embrace their unique and individual talents.

Hi! I'm Corinna! I'm a full time art teacher at a local "paint and sip" studio. I teach ages 5 and up how to sketch and paint. Have a photograph you want to recreate as a painting? We can do that! I can even teach pet portraits too! You don't need any experience to make an awesome piece of art, I'll make sure you have all the guidance you need!

About Corinna
I've loved art since I was a kid. Believe it or not, Bob Ross is the reason I'm an artist today. I remember watching him on TV and telling my Dad that I wanted to be an artist when I grew up!

But like a lot of kids that want to pursue art, I was told that I would never make any money. With my dreams crushed, I did what a "sensible" young adult would do when I was old enough to work. I got a boring desk job, and I hated it.

It wasn't until 2015 that I gathered the courage to change paths and start working as an artist! I work full time teaching art to ages 5 and up and now I've started my own private lessons.

If you've been discouraged to pursue art, it's time to change! Do what you love and get the guidance you need from someone who's walked in your shoes! Even if art is just your hobby, you will be amazed at what a little professional
help can do to increase your skills!

About Em
Hey there! I am a very creative, kind, and vibrant teacher! I love to teach anything I am passionate about, and have experience teaching in a foreign country as well! I have tutored in a variety of subjects, and always have students tell me how much fun they have in their lessons, and sometimes they even end up gaining a new appreciation for the subject I am teaching them! I am a firm believer in teaching with love and patience, and love to get to know my students and form a good relationship with them (especially if it is more than a one time lesson). My prices are flexible, and skill set is pretty wide! So excited to get to work with you!!

She was a great teacher! Could do all the moves with ease and was patient with those who couldn’t. She went slow enough for us to keep up and get a good result. She kept it fun but yet relaxing and enjoyable.
