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.

This class will prepare you to use acrylics, oils and water colors paints, explore expressive brushstroke techniques, color, composition, and light and shadow. Strengthen your observational and design skills as you paint.

It was great! After a bit of tech problems on both sides we had a good session. Monika's first lesson was fun and a good choice for me. I look forward to our next lesson.
