About Dovile
I began teaching while studying in Art Institute. My first students were 5 to 7 yr. old kids. It was very challenging, but also very rewarding. I was teaching them skills, they were teaching me patience. Later the age of my students grew, until I ended up teaching the same students I was in the same classes just 6 months ago. Again another challenge. I love challenges and even more I love helping others to overcome them.
My philosophy about teaching is that everybody can learn, it is only the way how we learn is different for different people. Another very important thing - I strive to be creative, respectful and approachable.

I have been using Illustrator for over 20 years and teaching it at the college level for eight years. I have used it and taught it for quite the range of design media. From Graphic Design, Motion Graphics, and Game Art to Image Manipulation, Concept Art and Abstract Deconstruction.

About Gilbert
I have worked for many Colleges and Kids Sports organizations. I have been background checked many times. I also teach kids of many ages at The Arbor Learning Center home schooling group.

Mr. M. is a CG artist. Like many, his love for art started in grade school and evolved in high school. While running his own T-Shirt Design company, "Extreme Limitations", he was able to quickly see the power of design, layout, color, and typography.

With over twenty years of experience in Graphic Design, Illustration, Prototype Design, Game Art, and Motion Graphics, Mr. M. now spends his time teaching students in many different graphic disciplines. He has been at Norco College since 2006 teaching 3D Modeling, Animation, Beginning and Advanced Photoshop, Illustrator, Digital Sculpting and Character Design. He has also taught 3D Modeling, Anim
ation, Drawing, Motion Graphics, and Video Editing at Coastline Community College, and Cypress College, Santa Ana and is now teaching 3D Modeling at Mt. SAC.

In his free time, Mr. M. freelances for companies helping production schedules that are running behind. In 2009, Gilbert won an Emmy.

This experience really helped me grasp important concepts that I otherwise would have never known. I feel like I learned A LOT in only 3 classes and I can't wait to learn more. Gil was very productive; he based the lessons on what I use Photoshop for and actually allowed us to work on projects that I had to do for work, instead of just teaching what he wanted to teach. He was SUPER patient and never made me feel bad for stopping to take notes. I would definitely recommend him to anyone trying to learn a computer program he is knowledgeable in. This is totally irrelevant, but he has cool hair too! Thanks Gilbert!

I've been designing for over ten years dating back to Quark (yikes!). I look for eager students to understand what they're doing as oppose to just memorizing. I will listen to your goals and adjust the curriculum to your needs. Whether it's working with Illustrator for the first time to getting advice for a project you're currently working on, I can assist you with your needs. I have lots of energy and love students with a sense of humor! Let's start having fun!

About Blake
Greetings! My name is Blake and I can't wait to meet you! I have been practicing design in the corporate, fashion and entertainment industries for over ten years. I can assist you with your goals from learning a new design software to providing guidance one of your current projects. Whatever you want to achieve, I can assist you by finding the right path. I do not have a set curriculum because every student varies from age to experience. My only rule is to take fun seriously!

Whenever I'm not at the computer, I'm acting, improvising or podcasting in Chicago.

Although I took only one lesson with Jessica, she gave me a terrific foundation that is now allowing me to then go forward and learn more on my own. I will likely schedule additional lesson with her once I get stuck and need more personalized help. Lessons with her are a great way to get introduced to or brush up on Photoshop. Yay, Jessica!

I had some very specific questions and design concerns that Jessica was able to answer clearly and in a manner that allowed note-taking and testing on my part, which is of course the point of on-line learning. She's a very thoughtful and thorough instructor and I will be taking more classes with her going forward.

I had a great first lesson today! Jessica was very thorough but also made it easy to understand for someone with no experience. Her teaching style is down to earth with very open dialogue - she not only went through the basics but touched base and made sure to cover aspects and relate to things in which i set as my goals. I am looking forward to the rest of my classes with Jessica!

We will start by getting to know one another a bit so I can gain a clear idea of what you are hoping to gain from our sessions. Whether it be an intro to a software or taking developing a full start to finish project. After our first meeting I will use my 11 years of professional experience to develop a unique lesson plan for you and your goals.

About Etana
Hi! My name is Etana, M.S. I am a detail oriented, self starting designer with 11 years of professional experience under my belt. From print to web, design is not simply what I do for a living, it is my passion.

I run a Tempe, Arizona based business called SocietyJazz = ‘Society’ as in the totality of people and ‘Jazz’ as in all that stuff. Society Jazz brings together my core concepts: People .Passions . Environments.

I bring this philosophy into my teaching method: I believe that each person is uniquely different so therefore their love/passion in life and how they bring it into the world is their own. I use this philosophy to create unique lessons based on you, how you learn and what you want to learn.

There isn't a creative challenge I won't take on with you no matter your experience level. My greatest joy is to share my pas
sion of Design with you.

Welcome to the world of Digital Art! Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to gain an understanding of the layout and the different uses for the tools found in Illustrator. As time goes on you'll be able to render and stylize your work, to give them that creative edge you have been seeking. I also specialize in Digital Painting, which also can be done here in Illustrator. All you need to get started is Photoshop CC, a mouse, Wacom/ Graphics Tablet (optional). Start today!
