Whether or not you are new to painting or want to get back into it after many years away and just need some feedback and a new perspective I am here to help. I have been teaching painting for 20 years and I’ve worked with students of all ages, from young adults to retirees. I teach painting using the classical method of observation (meaning, based on what they see). You will also learn how do use color as it reflects the temperature of the light and shadows like the impressionists. I will show you a lot of different artists for inspiration and to teach you how to glean the best from history. I recommend working from direct observation at first (a still life rather than a photo of a still life). You can expect to learn a lot about color for me, about the structure of light and shadow and how it helps create realism but also compose a really great looking paintings. I adjust my approach to teaching as I get to know each student and what learning style connects best with them.

I teach adults to draw. My passion really lies in teaching adults to draw.  With such a large generation of people heading toward retirement, I want to offer drawing lessons to give baby boomers some new goals to give them purpose and to enhance their post-career stage of life.  Drawing has many

I have been working as a professional artist since graduating with my BFA in 2007. Living and working in Dover NH for the over 5 years and have recently opened a new gallery and studio downtown.

I enjoy sharing the lessons I've learned from the talented professors who taught me how to work with watercolor at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst and at Lorenzo de' Medici University in Florence, Italy.

Jennifer writes: "What a wonderful way to spend time! Danielle started our class introducing us to examples of watercolor paintings and explaining the different techniques used in each of them, then we tried them out! She was very methodical in teaching us each of the techniques including, washes, color blending, dry brush and color lifting. She tailored the class to our experience level, or in our case, our lack of experience. I can’t recommend this class enough! It was so much fun and so inspiring! We wouldn’t wait to get home and continue our journey into watercolors that ...

Acrylic painting is a fun way to paint on virtually any surface. This type of paint dries quickly and can be painting on literally anything from canvas, to circular sawblades. Acrylic painting is also very affordable which makes it a great stepping stone into the world of art.

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!

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!

"I held a virtual team painting event and invited Sharon to be our tutor. My team has a tight budget, but Sharon managed to fit the painting kit under the budget & the paint was high quality! She also made a video helping us prepare for the painting event: how to stain the palette, how to wash the brushes and how to coat the canvas.

In the painting event, we had a large group (~15 people), so it’s very difficult to coordinate. People had different questions every 5 mins, or people asked the same questions, or you had to wait for other people. Sharon was very patient to answer everyone’s questions. We even went overtime but Sharon was very nice that she continued finishing the painting with us.

All my teammates produced very nice paintings! Majority of them have never painted before, but they created beautiful paintings under Sharon’s guidance. Thank you Sharon!"

"Sharon is the best art teacher I’ve ever had. She excels in explaining a concept verbally and then showing visual examples of it. With her positive and encouraging teaching style, Sharon guided me to better myself as a beginning artist. Her teaching technique is uncomplicated and easy to follow. When you take a class with her, not a single session goes by without learning something new. Without reservation, I would recommend taking an art class with Sharon."
