PRIVATE ACRYLIC PAINTING CLASSES IN MY STUDIO
What do you want to learn?
In these one-on-one acrylic painting classes you decide what you want to learn. And I deliver it. You may have heard that I've got some serious acrylic chops. Anything you want to do or know about painting in acrylic, I can take you there. No kidding.
A one-on-one intensive will provide the groundwork that you need to make some decisions about what you like and what you don't.It has been my experience over these past 20 years that people gravitate to some things and some things just turn them off. So you may love Tar Gel or it may set your teeth on edge. Why not try it in my studio rather than spending money on something you end up not liking? And I have all the toys for you to experment with. More acrylic paint than you can imagine, cool tools and outstanding music! Check out the Flickr site for pictures of my studio.
If you need help with the technical aspects of acrylic paints, gels and all the bells, I'm your Diva.
"Tesia loves what she does - and it shows. Her positive attitude and encouragement are priceless. I love it when she teaches different techniques - it sometimes feels like magic and Tesia is the best "magician" in town." Hagit, Lafayette
"I have always dreamed of painting, but never took the time to learn. About a year ago, a friend encouraged me to take a class, and fortunately I found Tesia. As a total beginner I was intimidated. Tesia provided the exercises, structure, encouragement and guidance to help me find my intrinsic style. The wealth of information she provides is astounding: from the basics like color, shape, form, composition, and brush stroke; to the mundane: how to repair a painting or properly wire a canvas for hanging. Her knowledge of the contemporary art world, art history and business of art is abundant. One thing for sure, I learn something new from Tesia in every class. Tesia's classes are fun, usually full (sign up early!) and a fantastic value." - Lisa, Lafayette
"Tesia is a great motivator and I have learned so much from her. Her class is loaded with great information and is so much fun." Lynn, Orinda
"I found Tesia Blackburn's class very informative & entertaining. She has an outstanding teacher personality ,with an extensive knowledge and yet capable of addressing students at their own level. I am a professional artist working in mixed media, and through her small class I had chance to sort out my knowledge in a very logical way. With her artist passion she introduced me to new colors combination and medias. Her demonstration was so well paced and clear!" Dominique, San Francisco.
