|Paint a seascape, landscape, animals and more! I teach classes in oil painting, acrylic and pastel. Learn about
composition, value, color mixing, how to create depth in a painting and more! If you don't have paints or brushes,
I'll start you out using mine. You'll just need to bring a canvas. After the first lesson, if you'd like to continue, I'll
provide a list of supplies to bring to your next lesson. I require a minimum two-hour session the first time we meet
to allow sketching in your subject and applying the first layer of paint. After the initial lesson, you decide how often
you'd like to paint depending on your schedule and budget. The cost of painting lessons is $20/Hr. If you live
outside the Southport area, I can also come to you for an additional charge to cover travel time and expenses.

My son, Michael's drawing skills and
technique have improved dramatically
since he's been receiving Eleanor's
instruction. He finds the lessons
challenging but has thrived under her
direction. Eleanor is a patient and kind
instructor and has helped Michael find
and improve his artistic ability. She has
tapped into a skill which we could not
develop on our own.

Painting with Eleanor was such a wonderful
experience! She was so patient and never let
me give up on my painting. She definitely has a
way of finding the artistic side of people.
Having never painted with oils before, I feel
confident that I can embark on my own projects
with the skills Eleanor has taught me. I would
love to paint with her again!
