I have been teaching art to children and adults over a period of several decades. I began during childhood assisting my mother with her children's art groups, which lasted 18 years, and continued on with my own art career and teaching.

Hi, my name is Shanee and I am an art Junky. I love All Things Art. As a matter of fact, I see the world through an artistic lens which means I see the art in everything. I am a self-taught artist and have been doing it since I could walk. I  just recently started teaching and I can honestly say that it saved my life. I was bored with work and creating this company makes living a meaningful and passionate life possible. I believe that I can help others tap into their creativity and have fun doing it. I seriously don't believe that there is such a  thing as bad artwork, there is something to admire in it all.  ... View Profile

I’ve been creating art since I was seven years old.I have studied a great deal of different kinds of fine art and graphic design as well . ​​​​​In my paintings, I am concerned with the act of relationship, with the self expressed through the process of painting. I am Ahlam Homedan, an abstract expressionist artist. My creative process is about connecting to my soul, my spirit and passion. The way I start my unique style of "drip painting" is by setting my canvas on the floor and allow the paint to drip from the paint cans. I give the paint the chance to be mixed and merged on canvas surface, and by several shapes of paint brushes I crea ... View Profile

In Every lesson, we use mindfulness, abstract thinking, & constructive criticism to distinguish what steps are needed to progress. -In drawing, I like to start with studying from the Outside, and appropriating the captured images Inside my studio. Sometimes the studies get collaged into the final piece. -In Painting I like to start with Acrylic, filling composition, creating space, timre, and depth, then finalizing with layers of oil pastels and paints on top. -In sculpure I like to think moderately more Functional. When can this object do or bring to me? Then I scavange for Materials. <br><a href="https://lessons.com/il/chicag ... View Profile
