About Michele

Hi, my name is Michele. I have 17 years experience teaching painting and drawing to all ages. I am a professional art Instructor and exhibit in Chelsea. I also teach at several art Institutions in NYC. I have spent a great deal of time doing what I love, teaching art to absolute beginners and to advanced art students. My main focus is to offer students an opportunity to prepare a portfolio for admission to high school or college programs in the visual arts. Students will be encouraged to build a portfolio that shows observational skills plus individual creativity in different mediums. During your lesson we will also practice for the required art auditions. And for students applying for college they will learn how to discuss works of art with confidence for their college interview. Each lesson will be tailored to the student’s individual needs based on their ability level either for high school or college. Previous students who have taken art lessons with me have been accepted into top art high schools as well as the best visual art programs in most colleges.

To ensure that students have a quiet and comfortable place to work, I have an art studio, where I teach private lessons and group classes. I also offer online lessons.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success.
