Edward Mallory Fine Art
Hello, my name is Edward Mallory. I've been painting professionally for over 20 years and teaching about half that long. I teach oil painting for all levels out of my home studio in Roseville. Painting is a marvelous pastime for young or old. Once you learn it will bring you years of joy and just maybe some notoriety for your work as an artist. I've taught many to paint over my years. Painting is a skill you can develop. Sure, some are blessed with more natural abilities but with practice anyone can learn to paint well.
Practice is essential you can learn to paint by someone telling you about it or reading it in a book- you have to do it. So before signing up for lessons make sure you have time to devote to practice. The good news is it's fun!
I teach private lessons these days only. My process is in studio instruction supported by painting demo video home study.
I teach mornings Monday-Friday. Students attend weekly lessons from 1 to 2 hours and my fee is $50 per hour (I supply the materials for the lessons with my fee).
Please visit my website @ www.edwardmalloryfineart.com if you would like to more of my art.
Also, my studio is located on the second floor of my home so if you have any mobility issues with stairs, please be aware.
Thank you and happy painting!

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
Well first is to understand their goals and expectations. If they are just beginning that can be hard to define sometimes but I'll just cover how the process works and what they can expect. More experienced painters I ask them to bring examples of recent work and after a bit of critique I now have a baseline and we can talk about the students interests and needs.
I'm a big believer in color skills. In opaque medium if you understand color or color properties and can create accurate mixtures, this painting thing gets a whole lot easier. So, whether you're just getting started or more experienced, color skills and how they work to create these illusions on canvas is probably where we start.
