Private and Semiprivate Art Painting Lessons


No two students learn the same way, so when a large group of students is combined in one classroom, not all will benefit from the lesson in the same way. Most art students feel disappointed and confused in a group art class and it’s normal. They simply can’t benefit the teachers’ attention, which is a key factor in order to monitor the learning process.

Private art lessons at Ziba Gallery:

  • Semi-Private art lessons: Private art courses with classes consisting of maximum 4 young students in a same group of age.
  • Private art lesson: students will be having one-to-one art lessons
  • In each class and art lesson, students also gain from the chance to direct their own talent by requesting the subjects they are interested in.
  • The courses contain drawing lessons, painting lessons with watercolor, pastel, acrylic and oil paints, mixed media art projects.

The individual attention students receive in each art class, the professional directions from their teacher and the confidence that they gain by seeing the results of their hard work will transform their relationship with the learning process in its best way.

Ziba gallery offers art classes for kids from age of 12 and up and also special customized art lessons for adults. What makes Ziba gallery stand out compared to other art programs is the professional technique of teaching which brings the best result in a short period of time.

Dawn’s philosophy is that everyone is a potential artist. All is needed is the required knowledge, the proper experienced in art mediums and the confidence in using different methods of presentation.

And last but not least all students from the beginner level to the intermediate and the advanced level will have a professional art portfolio by the end of each semester.

To see the impact that a small size art class can have on students, please review our students’ artworks.

My Art painting class begins with an introduction to the history of art and drawing back to its origins. Then I continue to teach art to my students in a very special way.
I teach the basic fundamentals that they need but also allow their own creative process to take over.Every student is unique and every talent is unique; their talent needs to flow and manifest from the student alone .I offer a unique learning environment for the beginner to the advanced student in my painting art lessons.
