Layla has truly been a helpful tutor. I tend to struggle in classroom environments where the teacher can't always attend to my needs with so many students, so I decided to get a tutor. Layla has experience in teaching and so I decided to give her a try. Her methods are effective and have helped my improve already in such little time. She is not only helpful during our tutoring sessions, but also maintains dialogue in-between sessions, which is also very helpful. I would strongly recommend her as a tutor. She's amazing!

Layla is a wonderful tutor. Her teaching methods are very helpful and have helped me improve my English. It's sometimes hard for me to learn in a classroom environment, so her one-on-one teaching methods are very productive. I definitely recommend her as a tutor!

From beginner skills such as choosing the brushes to creating dynamic designs this is the class for you. Using special water based oil paint this will be the easiest way to paint fine detail.

I'll teach you the basics of painting in oil and acrylic, and show you how each has its strengths and weaknesses.

About John

I was born into poverty in the mountains of West Virginia in 1971. My Grandparents raised me alongside six of their daughters and one son. A small house filled with 10 people meant that we never had much food or space. The environment to which I was born created a debilitating introversion that plagued me during my youth. To say I was "shy" would be a monumental understatement! Creating Artwork, coupled with my love of nature, gave me a voice when I had no words.

In my late teens I found that, by challenging myself to reach out when my introversion was closing me in, I could achieve things that seemed unimaginable to me just years before. College, travel, performing -“ they were all such impossible dreams. But those dreams just would not fade. At age 20, I was accepted to ...

I can teach color theory as well as how to let the creative energy flow so that you can connect with how you create as an artist.

I believe we are all creators and we don't necessarily need to be educated....just guided and shown some tips that nudge us toward the infinite bank of ideas that are stored in our consciousness.

The way I work with students is to let them explore who they are through their artwork. We can work off of their favorite artists and find unique styles that can inspire them to find what they love and how they express it.

I hope you will consider working with me....I can guarantee a fun, relaxed, playful, and safe space to explore.

We can discuss supplies and additional costs if necessary. I can work with anyone ages 10 and up.

Be well and keep Creating~

About Laurie

Hi =)

New Blog by Me on buying your first ukulele: http://takelessons.com/blog/buying-a-ukulele

I'm Laurie, a very passionate ukulele singer, guide, and artist since 2008. I honor each person's unique style and interest. I'm not teaching lessons just so people can perform, but so they can create a special bond with their instruments and canvases and their own style. We are all unique in how we create...so I want to watch that unfold. I'll go over all the basics and then we'll have fun! Each lesson will be a new experience and I will be allowing the student to guide and teach me ~ it's a team effort!

I LOVE children and have a background teaching Music Together classes as well as nannying my niece who was born with special needs. Depending on the ...

I have had the pleasure of taking several classes from Gil; Illustrator, Advanced Photoshop, 3D Modeling to name a few. As an older student in classrooms full of younger students, I can certainly recommend Gil's ability to teach any age group. He has the patience to walk students through techniques and procedures despite any lack of skill. At the same time, he is quick to challenge those students who skillfully grasp concepts and are ready to move on. The atmosphere he provides is warm and encouraging. There are so many techniques I am continue to use thanks to Gil's instruction!

During my time at Norco College, I had the pleasure of taking quite a few classes with Gil. I'm not know to be the best kind of student, I don't do well in classroom structures, but Gil's class was one of the few I was able to stay focused and do well in.

He has a great way of teaching that actually allows you to learn and have fun at the same time. He knows what he is doing and that shows, plus instead of just telling us to read this chapter or go to this page and follow the instructions, he will be more hands on and show us what to do and where to go and he did his best to help each student individually and help push their limits to make some amazing pieces of work.

I've learned a lot and still use a lot of the techniques from those classes, definitely the best teacher I ever had to date. So take it from me, if you get the chance to ever have Gil as a teacher, don't pass it up.

I have actually taken quite a few classes that were taught by Gil. I always have found him to be a super helpful teacher and always looked forward to going to his classes because the atmosphere always felt really warm to me, especially compared to a lot of other classes I have taken; he really wants to help students learn. I really like his teaching techniques, which involves more teaching from experience than “here have a book follow these step-by-step instructions.” Everything I have taken away from Gil’s classes has helped me become much more efficient, as well as a better artist. I’d recommend him as a teacher to anyone.
