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.

Lynn is an excellent teacher. She knows excellent how to take you through the process so you understand exactly where you are going and when you go home it is easier to recall. Rare in a teacher. Thanks Lynn!

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.

Carol has really helped me broaden my painting horizons, not just through learning new techniques, but also in just viewing art. I can now look at a painting in a gallery, know how it was created, and create something of my own based on what I see. She taught me so much in just a short time and has continued to be supportive of my work. Carol is truly a world-class instructor and artist.

I've been a hobby painter for years, not knowing what the actual methods were to paint. It was fun, but I wanted to learn some "real" techniques to take my painting to the next level. After viewing CJ's work, I was interested in what she could teach me. After the first lesson I was painting WAY BEYOND anything I had ever painted before. With some simple tools, tricks, and methods - I had a whole new set of skills to apply right away. Carol is extremely patient, and is always encouraging. Even with I thought what I wasn't doing, she pointed out moments and sections that I should repeat and do more of. In the end, my new creations were amazing, and I would recommend CJ to anybody wanting to take their painting to the next step on the masters path. She's the real deal. 7 out of 5 stars for this master instructor.

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 have been teaching professionally for five years with both small children and adults in many different platforms. My students can expect to develop skills of sketching in paint, rendering objects realistically, color theory, color mixing, texturing and blending, and building contrast. I work with you, where you're at, and develop my lesson plans custom to your individual needs. My students and I always have a blast and make the learning experience fun.

I've been teaching art - painting for 4+ years and my students have gone on to be art majors. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to create basic acrylic paintings. You must have access to the following tools available for your lessons: acrylics, canvas, paintbrushes. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!
