I teach drawing skills in any medium (this includes digital art - drawing and painting) covering any style and interest ranging from traditional still life and live model subjects to cartoon and anime. You will learn the fundamentals of recognizing and drawing shapes, arranging and cropping composition and the basic structure of human figures. As you advance you will learn about lighting and rendering techniques, creating movement and advanced composition. If your interests are in digital art, you will learn all of the same drawing concepts of traditional drawing plus digital painting techniques and color theory. I can also give you the tools and understanding to create your own digital brushes to use on your future art projects as well as tips and instructions on using Adobe Photoshop or Procreate for painting.

If you are a more advanced student, we can dive into more directed areas of study including sketching, fine art, concept art, landscape work and figure drawing, all ...

Hi, my name is Layla Meyer. I have taught art to kids between the ages of 4 and 12 with a company called KidzArt. I taught with them for several years. Before the pandemic, I was instructing in-person classes at elementary schools and in the KidzArt studio as well. In 2020, we began conducting virtual classes, so I have had almost a year of experience teaching art classes over Zoom. I began teaching my own virtual art classes separate from my company a few months ago. At the end of last year, I published a children’s book called “Rami the Travel Llama” which is available through Amazon and have since published a second book, “Differences are Great!” I enjoy illustrating children’s books and plan to continue producing and publishing stories starring the characters that I have created. Art is my passion and I love teaching to my young audience. My past students have really enjoyed being in my art classes and I would love to share my experience and love of art with the students of ...

I am a professional artist who has exhibited my artwork around the world! My artwork is in private and corporate collections globally - I even have an artwork in a museum in Hungary! I have studied with the Master’s of the day, including Daniel Greene, Richard Schmidt and Myron Barnstone — who did a show with Picasso in Paris after World War II! He was my mentor, and showed me many crucial techniques to perfect your art.

I love training new and aspiring artists in these classical techniques so that you have all the tools you need in your craft to become the best artist you can be! My courses are structured to challenge you to growth, and there is thoughtful feedback for each lesson to accommodate all levels and skill sets that take my courses.

Above all — you should find great enjoyment and fun in learning — and I love to make my classes both rewarding and fun!

About Hilary

It's never too late to start being an artist. As we move through your beginner drawing class, you will learn all about the elements and principles of art. Furthermore, we will use the fundamentals as building blocks to explore a diverse skillset such as gesture drawing, perspective, and still life drawing. In the beginner class, we will use materials such as graphite and ink These will be the building blocks for your artistic career. When you are ready to begin an intermediate drawing class we will go over more complex topics such as color theory and composing your piece. It is at this point when we will begin to develop your body of work as an artist and work to make the class tailor-made to your artistic style. In the intermediate class, we will begin using a variety of materials such as oil pastels and chalk.

Do you want to draw like Rembrandt? Do you want to be the next Van Gogh? Or maybe you want to be able to draw simple subject matter, like your family dog! Well, these are the online classes for you! My name is Timothy and I have been drawing for 30 years (pencil, pen & ink, colored pencil, and oil pastel). I enjoy sharing my art experience with others, no matter what age, no matter where you are beginning. I can begin with the simplest subject matter in drawing, like cartoons, and advance you into more advanced subject matter such as portraiture and drawing from life. My training is a balance of self taught instruction and my art teacher, John Gordon, the designer of the Green Bay Packers logo!
What are you waiting for? Now is the time to cultivate your inner artist and use your artistic talents like never before. Contact me and let’s get the ball rolling.

About Timothy

I am a fun-loving art teacher who is looking for art students of all ages who want to learn, learn, learn! I enjoy sharing my experiences with you as I draw and paint, you can learn from my successes and my mistakes as an artist. To begin, I will ask you one thing: what is your goal and how far you

Isanita ..
Tim is very knowledgeable about anatomy. He always started on time which was a plus. He provided some guidance but it didn’t feel like a lesson and more of a demo. He communicates pretty well but I would suggest asking students about things they like rather than making assumptions based on gender.
Crystal
He took time to find out what I was interested in learning and answered all my questions. He gave a great demonstration too.

"Jessica is a GREAT drawing teacher! My two daughters aged 7 and 9 have been having lessons with Jessica for a couple of months and she has done such an excellent job of catering to their very different personalities and preferred learning styles. She is so patient and calm. She has taught them various techniques, including how to work with charcoal, and they have both improved so much in such a short time. My kids really look forward to their lesson every time, and carry on with their projects when the lesson is over. I highly recommend her!"
