Do you love to draw? I do, too!! I've taught Art (Drawing and Painting) for over 20 years! I will help you achieve this. We all start out as young children drawing things, then over time, we get self-conscious and judgmental about our ability to draw. No matter your age, I can help you make beautiful pieces of art. I've taught students from age 5 to adult with great success, and I look forward to having the opportunity to teach you!

Margie is a phenomenal art instructor and artist – I highly recommend her classes to art learners of all ages! Whether you are interested in improving and practicing new art skills or looking for a fun art activity for your kids or with friends, Margie’s art classes are right for you! Margie gives excellent step-by-step instruction to create a wide variety of art subjects and styles, and can teach any art medium (watercolor paint, colored pencil, acrylic, etc.) in virtual and in-person settings. During lessons, Margie is great at giving individual feedback to each student in both group and individual sessions and encourages her students to explore and express their own creativity while they create – you will have a lot of fun and feel proud of the art you make in Margie’s classes. I took several of Margie’s art lessons with a group of friends (adult age group) and we learned to create a wide variety of subjects (nature, floral, animal, & human subjects) and learned to use several different mediums including watercolor, colored pencil, oil pastels, pencil & marker – I learned something new with every image/medium, love the art we got to create, and had the best time!

Margie is a complete pro. She handles all skill levels with encouragement and support, but also offers constructive and helpful pointers to actually improve skills. She is kind, talented, and makes me look forward to art projects!
Stephen
Our experience with Miss Margie teaching our daughter Art Classes has been life-changing for our daughter. Ms. Margie's attention to detail and understanding of the foundation skills needed to be an artist could not be more competent.

Our daughter is becoming a fantastic artist and is getting attention in middle school from the local magnet high schools due to her ability to create art based on the foundation skills that Ms. Margie has given her.

I don't think you could find any better teacher in the United States than Ms. Margie. Through these art lessons our daughter has gained a confidence in herself, the ability to create beautiful works of art, and a deep understanding of the foundation skills required in art.

We have been with Ms. Margie for three years and do not intend to stop lessons anytime soon. There is no doubt in my mind that Ms. Margie is the right teacher for your child. Ms. Margie is not only a great art teacher but a fabulous person which is rare in the teacher these days.

You will definitely be getting more than your money's worth from Ms. Margie. No one cares more than Ms. Margie about providing a great education in art. You will not be disappointed.

Good tips.

Ruth was amazingly helpful. She was clear knowledgeable and a great communicator. She was able to solve all my issues and answer all my questions. I highly recommend her as a teacher for illustration
Claire
My 1st animation lesson with Ruthie was a BLAST! She had me share my project ideas in writing before we met so she had a sense of what I wanted to work on, and helped me clarify my vision. Even though I’m a beginner at animation, Ruthie used her expertise and wonderful teaching style to help me learn some basic skills with a new program so that I can try things on my own. I can’t wait for my next lesson! Thank you Ruthie!

I want to teach you to draw what YOU want to draw.

Do you want to improve your anatomy? Be able to draw from life? Want to incorporate more movement into your drawings or learn how to get those fiddly details just how you want them? That's what I'm here for. We'll dive right into whatever your current interest (or struggle) is, and go from there.

We can focus on nearly any subject, and through it, we'll also discuss materials, perspective, composition, color, and even how to create art that you can market and sell, if that's what you want!

My daughter took naturally to the flute and my biggest concern has always been whether or not she was being challenged enough. When we first started lessons with Jenna, I asked my daughter how her lessons were going and she said "Jenna's showing me new stuff." It was the first time I started to hear her struggle to make some notes come out. It's been a few years now and I can still hear my daughter having to focus while she practices. I can see her continuing to get better and build skills.

As a parent, I appreciate how Jenna tries to bring diversity and fresh musical influences to her lessons. I like that Jenna incorporates music history and looks for new ways for the kids to work and learn together.

I am a professional artist with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting, and works that have been displayed at the MoMa in New York, the Museum of African American Culture in Houston, TIME Magazine, and more. My drawing lessons will be specifically tailored to you and your personal goals, while also maintaining a flexible structure. I find most art teaching to be much too limiting, and while our lessons will go over traditional techniques, we will also be finding your personal style and strengths. We will uncover the importance of line weight, learn how to shade, learn how to draw from life, learn how to draw hyper-realistically, and much more. In addition, we will go over helpful physical tools that i've found instantly make me a better artist. I believe everyone has the ability to be an amazing draftsman, and just needs the proper instructing.

John is an amazing teacher! Before our session john laid out a lesson plan catered to my needs. When we hopped into the zoom meeting the setting was very comfortable and open. I had many mind-blowing moments during our lesson where john taught me techniques I’ve never seen before (trust i’ve done a lot of digging on youtube). I left the lesson feeling instantly inspired and ready to practice what I learned. 10000000% worth it and I will be coming back for another lesson.

ps. even went over our time to make sure I grasped a technique + recorded and was sent our session. Very thoughtful instructor.

*** for anyone looking for painting based drawing lessons... this is the instructor for you.
Suzie Q
Omg! John is beyond what I had expected in painting lessons! Very clear, thorough and extremely patient!!! Encouraging and inspiring!!! He has a way of showing me colors and values that literally blew my mind. I’ve had only a few lessons with him and I asked my boyfriend to please buy me more for my holiday gift. He is way underpriced for the artistic and instructional skill level he has! Has such an aura of humility that makes me not be intimidated and I’m comfortable to ask questions without fear of embarrassment. I look forward to many more lessons from him. I highly highly highly recommend John!!!
Tim
I am a relatively experienced artist but John has given eye opening instruction in just our two sessions already. I left both lessons feeling like I had a months worth of schooling, and it was stress free. Highly Recommended!
