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.

If you think you are novice but have a great desire for art(painting) you are at right place.

I can promise that I can take you to the point from where you will have the confidence to paint something that you haven't done before and a joy of completing an art work that you can feel proud of.

I am saying that because I have that kind of experience with my students who encouraged me continue my passion for art by spreading it across them and community. That's the reason l decided to register here so that I can bring out the artist inside you.

I personally feel that art is a mind relaxing technique and great stress buster. Why not learn something that will relax your mind and will add to your skill set. All age groups are invited.
Thanks !
Happy Painting 😊

My Experience with Artee was short as i scheduled only 3 classes. As i did not know how many i have to take. I just wanted to test and learn first. In this short time I learned nice tips from her which helped me to self learn and progress my work. She is very patient and friendly.

I most often paint with oils or digitally, but I am also experienced with acrylic, watercolors, and gouache. For my digital paintings, I primarily use Procreate on the iPad, but I've been painting in Photoshop since I was 13. Let me know what medium you're most interested in, or whether or not you'd like to explore more than one! Even if your focus is digital, I highly recommend doing some traditional painting as well; it will greatly strengthen your digital painting skills (speaking from first-hand experience).

In our lessons, we will build upon drawing foundations and strengthen your understanding of color and light by painting from observation (both from life/in person and photo/video reference). We'll learn how to mix colors and layer paint to create depth and dimension. The subjects you paint will depend on your own personal interests, whether it's landscapes, portraits, or something else; I will always give assignments with your artistic goals in mind. If you have little to no ...

My daughter loved her lessons with Jessi! Highly recommend.
Brie
Jessi has been a tremendous help for my Design II class. They taught me all the proper techniques and was very patient with me and my extremely minimal amount of skill. Thanks to them I managed to get a much better grade than I usually would in these types of media classes (i'm so so so bad at technology) and I feel more autonomous when it comes to designing my own posters for shows.
Destiny
Jessi was always kind, honest and extremely helpful with her critiques of my work. Her guidance helped me understand key concepts in what makes good art and I improved so much because of it! I highly recommend her as a tutor!
