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!

About Drea
I have been in the creative industry since I was a child. I have been singing since I came out of the womb! And doing photography since high school. I am now in front and behind the camera as an actress/on camera host, and I am a professional photographer/videographer. I have behind the camera for companies such as VH1, MTV, Fuse TV, and the New York Post. In front of the camera, you have probably seen me in films such as Relativity Media's, "Act of Valor," "Baby Mama" (Opp Tina Fey/Sigourney Weaver), and Chris Rock's "I Think I Love my Wife." My experience both in front and behind the camera compliments each other as I understand what is needed for both positions. I try to keep my lessons informative and fun! -- Anything can be achieved if you take your time and you really want it.

I teach both in front and behind the camera :

My instructor Drea was a very was a very Patient and was prepared for our lessons. She sends an email and get a basic understanding of what your goals are what type of equipment you're planning on using and if she is unfamiliar with you for particular camera she does her research and is prepared to answer you any of your questions. I would recommend taking photography classes from her, I intend to continue taking lessons from Drea she is a treasure trove of knowledge.

Christopher is very knowledgeable with Photoshop ... I can't begin to say how patient he was with me and helpful he is with this program!!!
I had a very light background with PS but had not needed to actually use it until recently with my work.
I made contact with Christopher and asked for help (help!!!). We worked out a workable schedule very quickly and he had me hands-on in very little time.
I had no idea of all that was part of Photoshop yet Christopher got me up and running with the program with just two sessions.
Wow.
Thank you so much!!!

About Jessica
I've been living off of my own artwork the past several years learning any available medium for art and how to adapt to the constantly changing demands. This has been a side job for over 10 years now and my teaching style is very forward and clear, includes practices to build on and games to challenge yourself. Teaching groups is fine so if you want to buddy up, the more the merrier! My only request for groups is for everyone to be at a similar skill level to help keep everyone actively engaged.

I can teach a lot more than what is offered on this site such as mold casting, jewelry casting, resin casting, face painting, and sfx /cosplay. If you want teaching in these message me first before booking to work out supplies (booking will still be done here though).

About Chelsea
I am an artist with a huge passion for teaching! I recently received my Single Subject Teaching Credential in Art from CSU Long Beach and hold a Bachelors Degree in Art Education.
I began teaching six years ago at my local ballet studio, where I worked with youth ages 4-8. There, I fell in love with teaching and knew I wanted to peruse my love of Art in the teaching world!
During my schooling, I have studied internationally in Florence, Italy, where I studied Italian Renaissance art under current professional Italian artists. This experience was indescribable and I hope to bring in aspects of my learning there to my future students.
I have had experience teaching visual arts in many different settings, including elementary schools, after-school programs, high schools, and local art studios. I love working with any skill level and ha
ve experience working with Beginning, Intermediate and Advanced students. I cannot wait to find how I can help you grow as an artist, wherever you may currently be.
