I've lived in New York since I graduated from college, yet am currently in quarantine in Cincinnati, Ohio, where I set up an additional studio when the lockdown began. Online lessons are great right now, or social distancing 6 feet away outdoors, en plein air. My studio is in a beautiful, historic neighborhood with lots to paint.
I have worked with children and adults, and would be happy to give painting lessons to you and/or your group! I'm on instagram @anneyoakampaints
She is an accomplished painter herself and is able to clearly express technique and subject matter.
I ask what they would like to paint, assess where to begin, typically start with color theory, contour sketching, light and shadow.
The University of Oklahoma qualifies all Art majors to teach by requiring a course called "Public School Art". Though I have never been a public school teacher, I learned the basics, some staple projects, and how to teach from the most wonderful teacher and Artist. I am primarily an Artist and love it when people like my work well enough to ask me how to paint! Some of my happiest times were in the Art room at school with talented Art teachers and Artists.
