Abstract Painting uses a visual language of form, color and line to create a composition which may exist with a degree of independence from visual references in the world. Abstract art, non figurative art, nonobjective art, and nonrepresentational art are loosely related terms. They are similar, but perhaps not of identical meaning.

"Experienced art teacher of 27 years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of abstract expressionistic skills. I specialize in acrylic + oil paints, and heavy duty mediums. For color reference, I typically use medium to large flat brushes, metal palettes, varnish and resin. I practice and execute on canvas. I also have the following tools available to use as color reference during lessons: HGTV Magazine, Real Simple Magazine, Dwell Magazine, House & Homes Magazine, Pantone color books, my favorite music, and more.

I've been teaching painting for 15 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of acrylic, oil, watercolor and mixed media painting and created their own beautiful masterpieces in landscape, abstract, still life and other subjects! Within the first few lessons, you'll start understanding the elements of art such as light, shadows, perspective etc. and as time goes on, you'll be able to paint like a pro! I love working with students of all experience levels and see them leave with their hearts and souls painted into their masterpieces.

Having never taken a watercolor lesson before, I did not know where to begin. Renata showed patience, expertise, and humor as she helped me acquire the materials I needed and explained the basic procedures. Her demonstrations and personal assistance were exceptional. I highly recommend her as an outstanding instructor.

I have had the pleasure of having an art class with Renata Sharman for the last few months. I have learned so much from her instructions and her demonstrations. She is extremely knowledgeable about art and a gifted teacher. She also teaches cooking classes and is a talented photographer. I would highly recommend her to anyone who desires to improve his/her painting skills and enjoy it at the same time. Renata is delightful. A side note – Renata speaks 7 languages!
