PRIVATE LESSONS for Teens | Ages 12-18

We offer affordable semi-private instruction in your choice of drawing or painting media- intro to advanced

We also work with the college-bound art student with specific portfolio requirements


Each 'share' is 4 weeks total- meeting at the same time each week for 2 hours.  BEGIN ANY WEEK YOU WANT! Book as many shares in a row as you wish. Students bring their own supplies and work in our shared classroom space, each working independently on their own chosen medium, splitting instructor attention over the course of the 2 hours.  New students- in first lesson, instructor reviews past examples of your work (if any), identifies your strengths and goals, and comes up with a 'plan' for the remaining block(s). Returning students- continue your work with regular feedback, expertise, and guidance from the shared instructor. Instructor gives material supply lists and suggestions for homework to further your practice.
