To draw is to be fearless. If you are interested in drawing from life, then I can assist by teaching you the basics or show you how to improve your skill set. I work as a professional artist and have a great deal of knowledge about materials and processes. I enjoy working in ink, pencil (graphite and colored), charcoal, and pastel (oil and soft). I am also into combining media. I have taught for over a decade and my students range in age from children to senior citizens.

About Sandy

I believe in the power of art to change lives. I have been working as a professional artist for several decades and I love what I do. My work ranges from murals to intimate portraiture. My resume includes National Endowment for the Arts funded public art projects, solo exhibitions and museum shows

My expertise is helping students develop a deeper relationship with painting and drawing while encouraging a dialog with the history of art and contemporary art practices.

Over the past ten years, I have taught a variety of painting and drawing courses. Having taught Painting and Color at University of Illinois at Chicago for a year during my graduate studies, I honed my skills as an educator. Teaching at Massachusetts College of Art Summer Programs between my BFA and MFA gave me the experience and skills to develop my teaching skills. My class is challenging and engaging for all students.

About Monica

I'm an artist specializing in drawing and painting classes for young adults and adults. You'll receive personalized instruction from a classically trained artist. My mission is to give Students the skills to draw and paint realistically, and express themselves.

These lessons will address principals of composition in photography, as well as learning the exposure principle to be able to apply correct camera settings.

A link to an interactive camera setting tool will be provided for the students to practice on their own time.

At the end of the lesson, student will receive an exposure cheat sheet. The list can be stored on a smart phone and consulted any time anywhere while shooting.

Minimum requirements for enrolling in this class:

1 - Because every lesson is customized to address each students' unique circumstances and needs in the field of photography, students must provide information on which camera they will be using PRIOR to purchasing lessons.
However, the photography lessons are NOT intended for going over the brand/model-specific camera manuals, nor for teaching where to find the brand/model-specific camera features. Student candidates are advised to research and study this type of information PRIOR to enrolling in the ...
