Private lessons provide individualized art instruction for children (ages 6+) and adults. Our focus is on developing fine art skills but our goal is to create students who can "think like artists", problem solve and develop their own unique artistic vision. Lessons start with learning foundational art principles and techniques with practice exercises prior to starting more developed projects. Students who schedule multi-week lessons are able to guide the pace and learn a subject in more depth. Once a lesson series is completed, we will review together and decide upon your next educational goal.
All lessons are taught by studio owner Kerry Pease Coble.
Kerry has over 30 years of private teaching experience and is an award winning exhibiting painter. Kerry obtained her BFA from Rhode Island School of Design with further study at Tyler School of Art and MICA. Kerry has also been honored with a residency at the prestigious Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, MA. Kerry has spent her life surrounded by artists and educators. Her father, the late David Pease was the dean at both Tyler School of Art and Yale Art School and has work in dozens of major museums.

Love the experience! Had so much fun! I learned so much when Kerry taught me how to paint my cat. Very highly recommended!
I wanted to see what I could do artistically. Art Matters gave me the tools to try several mediums, and the courage to try. The instructors create an atmosphere where adults can relax and learn at the same time.
When I say my daughter loves Art, and Art Matters, I really mean it! Her art teacher at school has commented that she is a bit more advanced than the rest of her class.
We had a wonderful experience partnering with Kerry to offer a private art class for our school community. She made learning about various artists and techniques fun and interesting and our learners loved their afternoon of creativity. Kerry was kind, timely, and professional and I would highly recommend her to host any art class. Thank you so much for lending us your time and expertise!
