Hi my name is Anthony Astarita. I am a reality and abstract painter that also does mixed Media acrylic. I work on Wood, canvas, and Paper. I create intuitively and from a genuine place. Painting is a process. All art is a process. When I teach painting. I teach you how to be your authentic self. Not to paint like me but to paint like you.
I enjoy teaching people how to paint because being an artist is about creative expression that will help open your mind up for everyday ordinary life
I help my students develop there own paintings by examining everyday things that they truly love
I work with my students and let their process flow.
There are no reviews yet
It starts off with a board of likes a supply list and then diving in. Teaching the student to move beyond fear and getting into the process.
I've been painting for a long time and I am a career artist I also have art work in galleries.
I have taken multiple workshops with other professional artists to promote new skills and process.
I like giving lessons in clumps. Who can say how much you're going to learn in an hour on Monday and why would I want to just leave you hanging on one lesson.
Sets of threes I feel works best for the student and the me.
I use these clumps or set of three lessons to really develop devotion, dedication to your art. Most artists don't make art because they don't devote time to it.
My classes usually are $60 each at an hour, the set of 3 for $125 is a savings.
I get my students 3 12x12 panels to work on,. More available at $10 a piece but 3 are from me.
I have always been a teacher just comes naturally.
I work with students of all age groups and all beginners through mid level artists
Working on a project at home with my wife and she said honey you do great work!
My advice to you as a person getting lessons would be for you to look for an artist that is doing their own thing doing their own artwork and not worry about what other people think about it.
If you can find an artist that does that and is teaching out of love and dedication of art then you found a good resource to learn from.
I would say just dump your mind and become a sponge and just play with the lessons and the process.
