Would "Is the teacher painting the picture?" incorrect? Or would that be "Maalaako opettaja taulun"?

It's correct, too. Using "taulun" would refer to an already finished picture, whereas "taulua" means that the painting is still in progress. Either the painter is working right now or the picture will be finished later on.
