Private Watercolor Painting Teacher

In private watercolor classes I will show you the basics of watercolor and the ways to make it fun. Popular classes include how to paint animals, faces or landscapes. Water colors are wonderful for illustration, expressive art or realism. Watercolor is a relaxing and meditative medium perfect for a busy life to slow down and appreciate the creative flow.

30 MINUTE CRITIQUE: If you want a critique of your artwork to help you with the next steps , sign up for the 30 minute class, you will receive a recording of the class .

GROUP CLASSES: I also offer group classes for friends , student and co workers .

Megan is an outstanding artist as I noted seeing her portfolio and some work she shared at the start of our lesson but a great teacher as well! Very positive, easy to understand, clear about next steps and gives homework to do on if you want to really dig in. Looking forward to the next session!

I have been teaching water painting for almost 10 years..
This is a very exciting class! Students will learn How to Paint Watercolors, How to hold a watercolor brush and Basic Brush Control Exercises etc...
I will get you started and perhaps inspire you, as a watercolor painter. I can supply lessons on the craft and skills, but purpose is what is driving you to want to try to create art. What that vision is, is unique for everyone. The footsteps of the path that lies before you are yours to follow until you can find your own path.
So what are you waiting for ? Sign up your lesson today!

I am a practicing artist of almost 9 years! Being creative is a great way to express yourself and bring forth a piece of mind. Painting is an activity that allows for you to put on canvas whatever landscape, image or emotion you wish to portray. From abstract painting to hyperrealism, we can dive in together to discover some of your favorite ways to express your creativity. Whether it be through watercolor, acrylic, oil painting or another medium, painting what the student wishes to gain further experience in is what we will accomplish. My aspiration is to be able to let each student discover and further the true artist within them! Shoot me a message and let’s get creative! All skill levels welcome!

I am an artist with over 7 years of teaching experience. I've taught children, adults, and artists with intellectual disabilities and Autism. During your lessons, I want to teach you the techniques of various mediums that interest you. Once we master the basics, I want to help you discover your own unique painting style!

For our first meeting, I'd love to get to know you and what your interests are. I can then cater lessons specifically to those interests as we build your painting skills. A huge piece of painting well is building a strong foundation in your drawing skills. These skills will be built into every lesson. Let's work together to paint from a place that excites you in a supportive environment!

Allison was an amazing teacher! I just recently started painting for myself but I didn’t know what I was doing! After taking a few classes with Allison, I have a whole new understanding of painting and being creative! She has helped me improve my composition and has helped me look my art in a new way. I 100% recommend taking classes with Allison, she is a true gem!
Nathan
Allison is the best! My son and daughter love taking classes with her! She is fun, smart, and really kind! She taught my them so much in just a matter of a couple classes! She is great! My kids love her and have been having so much fun learning and painting! It’s a great way for them to learn and have fun after school.

My daughter is normally very shy and doesn’t like new people but, she was very talkative to Allison. After one class, my daughter was talking a mile a minute! She had so much fun painting and chatting! She was so excited to be painting! I am so happy to have found Allison! She is a true professional and is such a sweet person! She’s great with kids and is a great instructor! My daughter loves her! I cannot say enough good things about Allison!
