Private Art Lessons

Do you or your young artist want to take your art to the next level?

As a professional artist and a licensed, certified visual art instructor, I'm ready to help any artist achieve their goals.

With a focus on drawing, watercolor painting, or both, we will dive into techniques as I guide you through projects we chose based on your own interests.

The subjects we'll cover are personalized based on what you want to learn. Would you like to improve your ability to draw animals? We'll tackle shading, texture, proportion and more. Would you like to be able to paint calming landscapes? We'll cover watercolor techniques that help us create background, middle ground, and foreground.

Would you or your young artist prefer to learn in a group? Reach out for discounted rates on small groups or single private events.
