Bonnie has been teaching my oldest son how to play the guitar for two years. He has learned so much from her. When he started playing the Baritone last year he didn't have any issues with reading the music thanks to his lessons with Bonnie. My youngest son is taking art lessons and gets better and better with each lesson. Bonnie is a very patient and fun teacher. She is also very encouraging.
I have taken both encaustic and oil painting classes from Bela Fidel. Her expertise in both areas was and continues to be of extreme value in my personal growth in art. Along with technique, Bela has helped me to loosen up, get out of my own way and find imagination and depth in my work. Bela's work has qualities that I have strived for and because of her guidance and example I feel much closer to my goal. I highly recommend Bela Fidel as an artist and instructor as well as her classes/instruction.
Carol and her son did a great job at our company party! There was always a line of kids waiting for their faces to be painted and balloon animals. Carol's face painting was so beautiful that quite a few of us moms got our faces painted as well. :) We would definitely call Carol again for our next event.
Recently, I purchased private watercolor lessons for my nieces 11th birthday from CJ. All of my correspondence with CJ before and after was always prompt and courteous. CJ even geared the lesson toward my nieces interests and abilities. We held the lesson at my nieces house. CJ arrived on time and was prepared with everything we needed. She was even flexible enough to stay an extra hour since the lesson was going so splendidly. My nieces inherit interest and natural talent really flourished with CJs instruction and examples. I would highly recommend CJ and look forward to future private lessons with her myself.
I joined the adult painting lessons with Kathie Kelly. She provides a warm, welcoming atmosphere. I have only been to one class so far but found it to be very informative and I look forward to my next class with Kathie!
Jedadiah is an extemely talented artist. During my art lessons with him he is always very patient, responsive, personable, and professional. If you are looking for someone with experience & true appreciation for art I would highly recommend you choose him!
Carrie started my journey with yoga and meditation. I appreciate all of the lessons learned from her. Carrie is very inspiring and impressive in her techniques and knowledge. She is a bright light that always shines!

Peggy was very prompt in her response, taking the time to honestly answer my questions. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for professional lessons.
Robin was very friendly and knowledgeable. I learned so much from the lessons I took and look forward to trying the techniques. Thanks so much Robin!
Excellent teacher - love her painting style
I teach pencil drawing, water color, oil painting, acrylic painting and imaginary painting and I have been teaching art more than 20 years.
I teach art to children. I am currently an art teacher for K-6th grade. I am an artist myself, with a BA in Fine Art.
All can art! I teach drawing and beginning painting to students of all ages and ablities. I can come to you or you can visit my studio for lessons and additional inspiration. Lessons start at $15 per hour. Group discounts are available.
I am an experienced artist with bachelor of fine arts degree in painting from the Maryland Institute, College of Art in Baltimore, Maryland. I have an expert drawing and painting skills. I have versatile styles including realistic and painterly (loose/impressionistic). By focusing on the building blocks of art, such as shape, negative space, contrast, value, light, warm and cool color, and color intensity, students of all levels can learn to express themselves in art and unleash their creativity.
Because of the boldness of colors
I have the ability to truly relate to my students, in evidence by their loyalty in that many of my students have been in my classes and workshops for years. And, very good painters attend my classes, too. The innovative techniques I bring to the classroom, which I am able to explain and show in an "easy to understand and do" manner, bring happiness and satisfaction from my students. End-of-class instructor ratings are always quite high.
I am very good with communicating with people with reading their needs. Where their strengths lie and where they may be more sensitive to things. I feel as though I have a caring yet firm way of teaching and consulting. And I love what I get to do!!
