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.

Whatever your skill level, however fast or slow you want to go, I want to help you to become a better artist and enjoy it while you’re learning! What we cover in your lesson will be determined by your level of expertise. If you are just starting out with oils, we will discuss some important things to understand about the colors, mediums, how to set up your palette and some different ways of applying paint, etc. If you already have some experience with oil painting, we will pick up with whatever areas you would like to improve on. If you are interested in painting the human figure or portraits in particular, we can discuss some important ways to go about painting flesh tones. There are also some little known tips I want to tell you about that will be useful to artists of any skill level!

I will share with you any suggestions that I have for technique or different ways of approaching your painting that may help you with whatever areas you’re struggling with. We can focus on how to ...

Anthony is a patient, thoughtful instructor! I took private lessons with him quite some time ago, but still vividly remember the tips he gave me. He'd be a great fit for students of all ages and levels.
Maureen
Anthony is a competent artist and serious at his craft. His teaching skills reflect his knowledge and his passion for art.

Anthony G. is honestly the most AMAZING art teacher I have ever had! I didn't know what to expect from the private art lesson and was pleasantly surprised when Anthony was able to speak to what I am truly passionate about, which is nature. His positive energy, joy, and excitement for teaching is genuine and he goes out of his way to understand your artistic vision and goals, which really made me feel important and valued. Anthony G. is able to balance professionalism, humor, and quality standards for his students that creates a relaxed atmosphere and enhanced learning environment. He cares about each one of his students and is incredibly patient with them. He makes sure that you learn so much in a short amount of time, and ultimately succeed in achieving your artistic goals. After taking his class, I was able to more clearly define my voice, making me feel more confident about my ability to communicate through artistic expression. He is also a PHENOMENAL live event painter at weddings!

I'm so jazzed to take my next art class with Anthony Galati! I strongly encourage anyone to do the same!

Did you ever want to learn art from a professional? what about someone who's worked at pixar? an animation studio? freelanced? i did it all.

As an illustrator it's my job to figure out multiple concepts for one idea. As a teacher, i like to believe that there's more than one day of doing something. With my one on one lesson plan and schedule, i cater everything to my student's specific needs. Most teachers do things strictly out of the book but then you don't share your wisdom, personal experience or technique that's involved. i stepped out of the illustration industry to continue a life of teaching. i want share my knowledge with the future generation of artists and help them grow to understand why they love to do art.

I took painting lessons about 10 years ago and haven’t done anything since. I brought a 1/2 finished painting. Maggie was great helping me set up and seeing where I was and what I remembered. Then showed me some techniques to help get me going. I’m looking forward to our next lesson.
Steve K.
Maggie is a talented instructor. Helped me tremendously with oil paint color mixing and matching.
Melissa R
Maggie is an exceptional teacher who has her classroom management skills down to a tee. It’s amazing to watch her command a classroom full of children while remaining sweet and never losing her cool. She was a great mentor and I learned a lot about art education from her!

"We are happy to have found Kai on TakeLessons. Kai works with our high school junior on her portfoilio and submissions for art competitions. The weekly online lessons involve setting goals, conceptualizing, live demonstrations and live coaching. We were initially worried about the effectiveness of online lessons but it has worked out perfectly so far in the second month of lessons. Our daughter has already shown improvement in her technique, and an enthusiasm for the lessons and for the pieces she’s working on with Kai."

"John was a very patient and helpful instructor. Two of the participants had no water color experience and he provided them with a good understanding of the concepts as well as providing most helpful examples of how to actually do water colors. Will definitely ask John for a follow up session if we return to Las Vegas in the future."

"I've taken private lessons in the past, some were good, some not so good. I've always felt that other instructors followed a very generic blueprint during their private lessons. With Roya, I've never felt that way. The lessons are designed in a way that I felt as if I'm progressing as a artist. Do yourself a favor, and sign up. You will not regret it. :)"

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!
