About this pro

Experienced and fun-loving instructor! I have been hosting/teaching creative classes (tile art, craft workshops, canvas paintings) for 7 years to adults and children of all ages and experience levels.

Paint classes are up to 2 hours; all supplies provided. Can be in-home or virtual; I will deliver supplies locally for virtual sessions.

I instruct classes for individuals, private parties and public events. My new business is called TeePee Weirdos Art & Music Events, and I have a partner and team of assistants to help me host larger parties as well! 

Canvas paintings: 16x20” canvas with acrylic paints.

* I do not do watercolor or oils.

Love meeting new people and inspiring guests to explore their creativity! 

I instruct 2-hr step-by-step paint classes. You can choose from my selections or I can create custom piece for you based off an image.

    Tegan is a wonderful and patient art teacher. He kept the class laughing and offered each person valuable tips on how to translate an idea into real art !!

  • Jasmin Raab

    I sat in two tile art painting classes. They were excellent and fun! Tegan makes everyone feel comfortable to create beautiful art even though you aren’t very artistic. Had lots of fun too :) Would definitely recommend Tegan to everyone.

    I have done tile art with Girl Scouts, adult tile art, and painting. Always had a fun time. Highly recommend 💜.

7 years of painting and instructing both private and public paint parties!

How did you get started teaching?

I use to host painting workshops/parties at the local coffeehouse. I also worked for a sip and paint franchise for 5 years. I am now owner of a new business called TeePee Weirdos Mobile Art & Music Events. 

What types of students have you worked with?

My step-by-step instructions make these painting classes easy and fun for all ages and all levels of experience. Ages 7+.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Recently hosted a public fundraiser event  'Grateful Day of Art and Music' which combined a paint class with live music for a fun-filled event! 

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Meet with the instructor or have a telephone conversation with them. Ask to see photos or reviews. Go with your feelings ... if it feels right, you'll know. If you have hesitation or doubt about the connection, keep looking. You want to feel comfortable with your instructor. 

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Are you new to painting? What type of painting do you find interesting? What artist or piece of art stands out to you? What colors do you like? Do you prefer bold, bright colors or neutral/natural colors? What themes are interesting to you? What do you hope to achieve from this class?
