About Elias

Hello!

I am a painter who loves to pass on the skills I've accrued over my many years in the art field. I am an expert in all things paint, acrylic & oil, watercolor, etc. I love teaching others how to use these materials the CORRECT way, and to see how people realize the potential of a material when used properly. I love to draw, I like drawing silly things with kids and seeing their imaginations run wild, it influences me in my studio, seeing that raw excitement and creativity is very infectious.

I taught a couple classes while working towards my Master's degree at Brooklyn College, and combined with my many nephews and nieces, I'm very comfortable around kids, especially when playing with paints and crayons or anything art-related. I love music while making art, nothing wrong with dancing while painting!

I generally like to see what the student would like to work towards first, then build a lesson plan off of that. That can be as simple an inception as learning how to use a material, or as complex as wanted to copy an old master painting, or learn highly skilled drawing techniques/tools.

I hope you choose me to explore your creative side with!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Drawing

I've been drawing since I was 6, taking after-school art classes. I have degrees in both Illustration and Painting. I feel more comfortable with a pencil in my hand than a fork. I can list how to use every drawing material and implement (maybe?) known to man, what it's used best for and I can definitely explain to tutees how to succeed at mastering the material.

Painting

I paint 3-8 hours a day and have been since receiving my Master's degree in painting in 2010. I've successfully taught others how to use acrylic paint in a better, more accurate way in many jobs I've worked/collaborative projects I've participated in. While acrylic is a specialty, I have thorough knowledge of oil, watercolor, pastels, every painting material and technique and would love to pass on this knowledge!
