Hi Julianna, I'm a Certified Zentangle Teacher and, inspired by one of your lessons, posted a tangle pattern design on my blog some time ago. I recently received this message from a blog reader and wanted to share it. "Dear Margaret, Bunches of thanks for sharing your lovely works of art. I am feeling really inspired by your works. I am kinda speechless what to say about your beautiful designs. I want to thank Artist Julianna Kunstler through your site as i failed to do so on her site. I was amazed by her works and already produced a still life with a combined inspiration from and Kunstler. Have a Blessed Journey Thanks again. Tahmina" Keep up the great work!

I think this is a pretty cool site. I am an adult who has wanted to study art history since my art history class in college didn't teach as much. It was more about the content of the artworks, who did what when. We never had any worksheets to help us. I like that idea. I was wondering, you mention in your descriptionn of the art history class that you included the exams. I don't see anything but the chapter worksheets. Where are the exams? Also, what do you do with the timelines when you print them out? I noticed there isn't hany info really in the sections. Does the student fill those in? Or do you do anything with timelines? Thanks.

online art lessons

I am still working on this page to put together few classes for adults and children of all ages and artistic abilities. This is my big undertake - I am planning on expanding the variety of the tutorials above the school curriculum for everyone to enjoy! Please comment on the classes and lessons that you sign up to - I do need an honest feedback. Thank you!

school art

this is the biggest section of my site. It was originally created for my high school students and to help me organize my lesson plans. Eventually it grew into something bigger. I am glad a lot of people find this site useful. You can find here full and detailed tutorials for drawing, painting, computer graphics, desktop publishing, ceramics, art history, sculpture and jewelry. These are the classes I teach.


links to other art sites and pages I created for my friends artists.
This page is still under construction as I run out of time to do everything that I plan. Please enjoy!

Fine Arts classes


is an introductory art class for beginners. The curriculum is for a year-long class. The structure is based on learning the Elements and Principles of Design. Each element is a unit with a choice of assignments to practice and apply the concepts of the Art Theory.



is more advanced class, focusing on experimenting with art media. This is also a year-long class. Once students have learned the basics at Art-1, it's time to experiment and to try different art techniques and media to choose their favorite. Each assignment is a different media, many of them are mix-media projects.


Drawing & Painting

is advanced art class, focusing on academic skills of drawing and painting. It is a semester class that targets students, who plan an artistic career in future. Some of the assignments are college-level, just a bit adapted.


Art History

is exactly what it is. I included the textbook worksheets that I am using. There is also a time line with worksheets for notes for each art period. It's a great teaching tool that worked great for me. I also made flash cards with world masterpieces for students to memorize. Unit exams are also included.

Computer art and Design

Computer Graphics

introduction to digital imaging and design. Semester course starts with the presentation about types of digital images, their structure, terms, used in graphic design, etc. The majority of the time is spent on learning the basics of Adobe Photoshop. Some time is spent on learning Adobe Illustrator and InDesign. Work files are also included.


Advanced Computer Graphics

advanced Photoshop and Illustrator techniques, photo enhancement, introduction of Flash animation, Adobe InDesign basics, and use of online resources. Focus on creative, independent projects and advanced techniques.


Visual Literacy

a new class I teach in graphic design. I am still working on the content. Semester class to develop visual skills in digital and graphic design. Learn composition, Color Theory, Gestalt Principles, Advertisement, etc.


3-D classes
