Acrylic is the perfect medium for a shorter time period to paint. The paint dries almost instantly yet with the techniques I teach your paint will stay wet for days and weeks. Great way to learn to paint and a medium you will switch to forever depending on the subject matter.

Manhei is a great guy, completely dedicated to his art, and a patient, kind instructor. Definitely overqualified for the job, but with an excellent attitude and optimistic outlook.

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.

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.

I've been teaching painting for 15 years. I work with my students to customize lessons to their individual needs. Working with specific goals, I can help students achieve whatever level of painting they wish to achieve. I have taught lessons with students of all ages and all levels. I teach the importance of understanding composition, light and shadow. Together, we can work on realism, abstraction, figurative, landscape or anything you desire!

I love helping students learn the essentials of art making and painting! Learn either acrylic, oil, or watercolor painting.

Students will work with acrylic colors and will explore the many ways paint can be handled. Topics include: materials, color, light, texture, transparency/impasto, and composition. For intermediate painters, the exercises become more complex as students work from initial sketches to more developed pieces.

Perfect for learning a new hobby or building a college entrance portfolio. I'm a certified California art educator (K-12) and have been teaching community art workshops/classes for teens and adults since 2004.

Each week I provide students with tips for the lesson, homework projects, and any worksheets needed. Students may already have some materials but if not then I have supply lists on Blick U and Amazon for quick and easy shopping.

I'd love to help you tap into your creative potential and transform your ideas into art.
