- What makes your instruction different?
I teach students realistic drawing and painting and illustration. The art classes are varied to include teaching still-life, the figure, landscape, portraiture, cartooning, animation, clay sculpture and more. All art lessons are designed around the student’s interests. Students learn at their own pace.
It is a high quality fine art program offering art instruction that goes far beyond cut and paste, and arts & crafts. It offers art students basic understanding of how to draw and paint and teaches them how to see in a new way.
I teach the mediums of acrylic, non-toxic oil, watercolor, color pencil, ink, charcoal, pastels, clay sculpture, mixed media and more. I teach many styles such as abstract, portraits, realism, still-life, landscapes, and illustration.
- How are classes structured?
I offer private lessons and small group classes (no more than 5 people). All art lessons are designed around the student’s interests. Students learn at their own pace, or if desired, I have step by step classes.
Children classes are separate from the adult classes.
I teach all levels of experience and all abilities.
There are many classes offered nearly every day of the week. There are morning and evening classes to accommodate most schedules. It is best to contact me to see what times best fit your schedule and artistic needs. http://www.vanessamontenegro.com/vm/art_classes.html
It depends on your level of art, how much you practice, and what your artistic goals are. I have some students who take painting classes as leisure. I have other students that are aspiring career artists or are high school students building their portfolio for art school. Everyone’s learns at their own pace with a program tailored to their needs.
