« Perfect! Paula is an excellent art teacher. My daughter is 10 years old and took about two month's worth of lessons with her. In addition to guiding her on painting techniques, Paula was very patient, nurturing and fun. She is very calm while at the same time has a good sense of humor. My daughter loves her. Her teaching made my daughter become fascinated with painting and art. We felt sad that we couldn't continue the class because she moved away from where we live. But we'll highly recommend her to anyone who is interested in art and painting. »

Artist with BFA, MFA & 8 years teaching experience teaches teens and adults

Methodology

I'm a fine artist specializing in oil painting with a passion for sharing what I've been taught. I specialize in teaching beginning drawing and painting (watercolor, acrylic and oil) to teens and adults. I also consult on portfolio development for high school students. I focus on working from life as an essential skill. I am a patient and encouraging teacher.

Background

I have eight years of teaching experience to students ages 8 to 80. I have taught over 300 students in that time in community programs, private schools, after school programs, private lessons and state institutions. My students consistently tell me they learn more information in a few classes with me than they have learned from years of art classes. They leave my class well equipped with the tools they need to make strong drawings and paintings on their own.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $60/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : $250
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : $500

Details

I will give semi-private lessons to two students for a group rate of $100/hr.

Up to 30km from me, travel cost is included. Travel beyond 30km will be an additional $10/lesson.

Paula's response

Grace is diligent and a delight to teach. She is quick to pick up on techniques and offers ideas and approaches of her own. I hope that she continues her drawing studies.

Paula helped me develop all the important base concepts that artists grow upon, from anatomy to light to scale and more. Her private lessons helped me build the eye for drawing that I have now and we still remain close friends even long after our private lessons in Connecticut ended when she moved out of state. She also introduced me to many different media forms, from oil to watercolor to charcoal, allowing me to experiment with different kinds of art and find my strengths and weaknesses. Because of her teaching, which was always constructive and kind (and most importantly relaxed and fun!) I am still very proud of my artistic abilities today, even years later. She has an incredible range of experiences to teach from and you will learn more than you could imagine if you chose her as a teacher.

Paula is conscientious, punctual, respectful and flexible. She genuinely cares about her students' progress and encourages them to take control of their individual learning experiences. She prepares herself thoroughly to teach and is organized and engaged. Her sense of humor and realistic approach make her lessons enjoyable and students can identify with her.
