I have been teaching water painting for almost 10 years..
This is a very exciting class! Students will learn How to Paint Watercolors, How to hold a watercolor brush and Basic Brush Control Exercises etc...
I will get you started and perhaps inspire you, as a watercolor painter. I can supply lessons on the craft and skills, but purpose is what is driving you to want to try to create art. What that vision is, is unique for everyone. The footsteps of the path that lies before you are yours to follow until you can find your own path.
So what are you waiting for ? Sign up your lesson today!

About Kelvin
I am a highly organized, outcome-driven and motivated professional musician and educator with solid experience in the classroom. For the past 25 years, I have been employed with Amati music academy and seven years on the faculty of University of St Francis.
I am very comfortable with all aspects of the current music syllabus, including teaching musical concepts (such as duration, pitch, dynamics, tone color, texture and structure) as well as performance, composition. I am fully qualified, with a Bachelor of Education in Music, Double Masters in music performance and education from University of Nottingham.
I am proficient in classical, jazz and Celtic fiddle violin and possess solid skills in piano (grade 8-13) Royal conservatory system.
Throughout my teaching career, I have been driven to help students achieve their very best. I str
ongly believe that music has the power to change lives – to enhance the social, cultural and spiritual lives of people, and serve as a profound medium of personal expression. Professional perform experience: The Chicago, Natalie Cole, Smokey Robinson, Three tours with Moody Blues, YoYo Ma etc....
The most important thing I look for in a student is communication skills, as well as talent. I like to nurture students and help identify their individual strengths, which is a key factor in shaping a musical persona that will make its mark both on and offstage. I do not advocate a uniform technique for all students. Physical differences and learning styles are always taken into consideration. Potential is as important to me as early achievements and experience. My goal is to help students become self-sufficient, discriminating artists. I discuss practice techniques often and develop individualized scale routines. I encourage initiative and expressive musicality as well as precision. Above all, music needs to bring obvious joy to the student, regardless of the difficulties.”

I had my first lesson with Kelvin and it was very good. Kelvin made me feel very comfortable and we focused on the various tones used in learning and speaking Mandarin. I look forward to my next class this coming weekend.

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

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.

I provide classical instruction in portraiture, still life and landscape in your studio or mine. In this traditional approach to drawing and painting, what will be taught and focused upon are perspective, value and composition in order for the student to develop strong visual language skills. The program of study begins with a specific focus on drawing, since drawing is the foundation upon which all great traditional art is built. Throughout this training, emphasis will be placed on accuracy, or more specifically, seeing and rendering correctly such things as line quality, hard and soft edges, proportion, positive and negative space through abstract form and the use of the full range of values.

About Jeff
I'm a graduate of Dean College in Franklin, MA and The School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston where I majored in art history and studio art with a focus on portrait painting and illustration. I continued further study at the Andeeva Portrait Academy in Sante Fe New Mexico, the Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Art in Van Nuys, CA and the Sadie Valerie Atelier in San Francisco.

The program of study for drawing will include: Demonstration of one, two and three point perspective, creating the nine step value scale, cast drawing in charcoal, the still life in charcoal and drawing the portrait. The topic of composition will also be covered. I’ve done commissioned work for Audi, the Norman Rockwell Museum, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the American Repertory Theater, the Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston, Kessler Financial Ser
vices, Harvard Business School Publishing, Shilo Baptist Church, the Chelsea Soldiers Home and others. Samples of my work are available to view in my profile. Additional samples are available upon request.

Learn the steps of watercolor painting with Mrs. Jordin! From beginner to advanced.

About Jordin
Hi, my name is Jordin and I am an art student at the University of North Texas. My major is New Media art where I use video and other technologies to create pieces of art. I chose this major because I want to work in stop motion film and make my own drawings and characters I sculpt come to life. I primarily started drawing since I could hold a crayon and I have been working in all fields of art ever since! I love painting, sculpting, and even anime/manga!
I have taught at art studios and non-profit organizations, but I have found private lessons is my favorite way to get by during college because I love meeting amazing people and inspiring others to make art. I believe in learning the basics and key concepts/definitions in art when beginning, and then using those learned skills to create wonderful expressions of art. Don't be shy or
worried about your level of art, and I hope I can teach you the skills you need to enjoy yourself while making art!

Watercolor painting has a way of showing emotion and expression. I am a graduate of the Baltimore School for the Arts (BSA) majoring in visual artists and continued my studies at the Maryland Institute College of Art. In my spare time, I've taught for the last 15 years. I've tutored actual BSA students. I love painting. I love teaching art. It is an expression of an individual's personal journey.

The most fabulous thing about being an artist is that boundaries regarding creativity are non-existent. The artist is always in a state of learning. Art is a progressive practice that takes time to develop.

Students will be introduced to the color wheel, basic materials needed, perspective, and the differences between realistic and impressionistic painting techniques.

Materials are not included.

Watercolor painting lessons will be assessed based on the individual's current abilities and their goals.

About Sharron
My resume includes graduating from the Baltimore School for the Arts and continued studies at the Maryland Institute College of Art until I decided I didn’t want to be a “Starving Artist”. So, I graduated from the University of Baltimore with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Business Administration with a minor in Human Resources Management. My education also includes 27 graduate credits that were leading to a Master’s in Public Administration when I decided to discontinue that path. After twenty-five years in the public sector, I decided to revisit my passion for art in my spare time. As a youngster, I remember wanting to teach art in schools, but I did not want the restrictions that are present in the classrooms and more so today. All forms of art is a freeing practice that is practiced and developed over time.

Sharron was an awesome instructor!!! She was very professional. She showed up early to set up for my daughter's paint and sip party. Sharron gave very detailed descriptions to help guide the amateur artists. Everyone enjoyed the personal feedback that was given. Sharron made our party a huge success. I would definitely recommend her services.

I have experience teaching painting (and intro to art, art history and art appreciation) to 7-12 graders, adults of all ages at the college level, as well as 3-5 year olds. Have a MFA and BFA from the top art schools in the subject area, with high honors. I teach acrylic, oil, water colors as well as digital (Painter, Photoshop, etc; 20 years using Photoshop alone! As well as 10+ years teaching art at the college level). Though I much prefer to teach painting in person as a plastic medium, I’m willing to be your online Bob Ross :-) In an ideal world this would envolve a painting salon outdoors in good weather, some homework and field trips.

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 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.

I teach the students how to draw and paint anything they see or imagine. The classes are no more than 5 students a class and each student gets individual attention. I teach all ages and all skill levels, form age 2 to 92 years old and from beginners to advanced/professional. I teach oil, acrylic and watercolor painting.
The students are brought up in skill level to the point that they feel confident they can paint at the level they want to and can even make a career out of it!

The first part of the lesson, is the most important one, as the first step is identifying the style of the student, so that I can gauge the skill level and technique. My goal is to help enhance the good habits by reducing or removing bad habits. I have been teaching for awhile. And have a great ability to adapt to the situation. I do not bring any judgements, I am very optimistic about developing your skills because I am a strong believer that art will help improve the quality of our lives.

I started off self-taught (reading books and watching Bob Ross). Then, I started picking the brain of my grade school art teachers... who adored my inquizative mind. Then through experimentation, followed by taking graphic design and then fashion design courses in college. I fell into teaching students when I was 13 yrs. I was volunteering as a Youth Worker assistant as a summer job, and I started teaching individuals younger than me the art skills that I learned. In that moment i noticed that ...

Let me help you feel comfortable as well as embrace the wonders of the creative world.
