Like drawing and other forms of art, painting begins with technique and fun. I want to encourage a love for art and painting brings out that love and develops creativity. I graduated from art school in 2020 and immediately began teaching children online due to the pandemic. I am a published illustrator of children’s books and used watercolor painting to illustrate the books. I love teaching and seeing the joy others experience with art.

I teach what you want to learn. Lessons may include: Basic or advanced techniques. Mixing vibrant hues. Wet-on-wet. Dry brush. Masking. Glazing. Dew drops on flowers. Textures--using salt, layering, sponges, scratching, lifting, etc. Considering your light source. Loosening up. Managing the water to pigment ratio. Paper selection. Setting up your palette. What paints to use. And brushes: how many, what kind and brand? Painting outdoors in the open air, or from photographs, or from a still life. Using your phone to help you critique your painting. All levels--from beginner to advanced. Demonstrations on creating watercolors in the style of famous watercolorists like John Singer Sargent, or Winslow Homer.

Subject matter can include journaling, watercolor sketching, landscapes, seascapes, florals, abstracts, still life, urban settings, color grids, and more.

Additionally, you can schedule a lesson and let me know that you want to use it as a critique to review some of your work. I ...

Jane is a wonderful teacher. She's funny, patient, kind, and supportive. She is very skilled at giving feedback that is developmentally appropriate and helpful. She's also an accomplished artist with a rich knowledge of art history, which she incorporates into her lessons when appropriate, and which I personally enjoy greatly.

Watercolor is a media of extremes- either very free or very controlled! Students will learn which way they prefer to go with it- mastering the use of lights and darks and the order in which paint must be applied. They will use various tools to achieve interesting effects- salt, rubbing alcohol, and masking fluid.

About Melanie

I take great joy in bringing art to the surface that the student didn't even know they had within them! Creating art is mainly about confidence, and I build that with each person, one on one. As they gain confidence, the techniques needed to create meaningful and engaging art come more easily. I ha

Watercolor painting has a way of showing emotion and expression. The most fabulous thing about being an artist is that boundaries regarding creativity are non-existent. The artist is always in a state of learning. Art is a progressive practice that takes time to develop.

Students will be introduced to the color wheel, basic materials needed, perspective, and the differences between realistic and impressionistic painting techniques. The students main objective is to learn, by painting what the individual wishes to paint (personal projects that sparks and continues the creativity within).

Materials are not included.

Watercolor painting lessons will be assessed based on the individual's current abilities and their goals.

Note:
For virtual sessions, the student will need to create a conducive workspace that will allow teacher/student viewing of art work in progress. The student will need a workspace with lots of light. Often, I will ask to see the students progress, so that I may be ...

Sharon was so personable and started me with exactly what I needed. I've skipped over a lot of the basics when doing watercolor on my own and I'm glad to have a direction. Results will be good.

Although I've dabbled in watercolors previously, Megan taught me a few formal techniques which I used to create a small finished piece and which I will be able to use going forward.
