COVID 19 Notice
As Per Governor Tom Wolfs' mandate, the studio and gallery is closed until further notification. No classes can be offered at this time. I am deeply sorry for this. Please be well, be safe and I look forward to working with you in the future.
Private painting and drawing lessons for adults are offered at my studio in Buckingham, PA. They are scheduled at a mutually convenient time and occur on either a weekly or twice a month schedule.
Students of all levels are welcome; from absolute beginner through intermediate/advanced. No art experience is required to enroll.
These classes are for people who want to stop the cycle of "learning a little bit here and there" in isolated classes and really get down to the business of learning how to paint and draw.
More information about why I teach this way is here.

Reviews and Comments
“"Materese is a natural born teacher, it’s just who she is and she gives it her all. As a result, her students learn and grow in ways they could not expect." E. Waters
“ You are simply the best, I’ve tried other instructors and workshops, but no one compares." Michelle E.
“I cannot tell you what a positive impact your classes have had on my daughter. They have opened up her world and have helped her see the world differently. She actually used experiences she had in your class an example of how she was met with a challenge she thought she could not meet and how she overcame them for her college application. Thank you so much." Barbara K.
"Materese has helped me refine my technique, find my voice and direction. Her teaching method allows the student to develop his/her own style and build upon that foundation.” Kate F.
"Excellent and patient instruction for beginners, as well as intermediates. Materese, an incredibly accomplished painter herself, paces instruction to the individual needs of each student while instilling the complete range of information necessary to success in painting. --- highly recommended!" Don C.
"Materese's instruction and guidance have been invaluable to me. With a nice balance of practicum and theory, I have learned the core principles of painting - and art in general - as well as the ways I can incorporate them into my own work. Materese is patient, flexible and encouraging. I'm very grateful to her." K.F.
