Professional Artist and Teacher

Joshua Lance

Hi, I'm Josh. I'm an artist from Lambertville, NJ who has taught English and art in Asia and Europe for over 6 years.  I have designed this course meant for beginners or those who always wanted the courage to paint but unsure where to start.  I teach the basics of tools, techniques and a few artist insights that will help you paint your stunning sunset. I love the feeling of helping students master new skills and become experts in whatever field they choose, and I'm really excited to get to know you.If you have any questions please contact Josh at jlanceart@gmail.comJoshua Lance’s vision is not just a painting but a symphony of colors.  He often calls his works “Visual Jazz”, as there is often spontaneity of his brushwork in a disciplined composition.  Lance intentionally uses a simplified color palette of primaries to create harmonious relationships.Working as a professional artist and English teacher in Asia and Europe, Josh has had the unique opportunity to work closely with Taiwanese, Thai, Italian and American artists and paint on location from Ireland to Italy, from the streets of New Jersey to the mountains of New Mexico and beyond.  He is a storyteller and nomadic artist at heart.In his twenty-five years of painting, Josh has studied art from teachers to ancient landmarks.  His techniques come from his influences of impressionism, calligraphy, and some classical elements.  Essence and emotion are more important than hyper-realistic details.  Nature and intuition are among his greatest teachers.  He finds inspiration and beauty in moments often missed by modern life.  He enjoys being personal with his audience, often creates art videos of his life and artistic process.“I’m most proud of my responsibility to honor my craft as an artist and teacher.   Learning about living in other cultures has profoundly and positively affected my life that’s beyond learning in books.  Art has given me a life worth living.  It takes courage to follow your own path and vision.  I’m very sensitive to people’s vibes and nature’s surroundings.  It’s a joy, not a job to pass your knowledge to others.  Simply, I draw and paint what gives my life meaning.”
