Strong recommendation for Deron. I had a 2 hr lesson where I had specific things I wanted to do and learn, and he delivered. Very flexible in the lesson, and great instruction!

Lia was an AMAZING meditation teacher! She was calm, patient and very 'Zen' for our entire lesson, which really helped me to relax and calm down myself. Her instructions were easy to follow and I was able to achieve a deep level of relaxation normally absent from my meditations! Using the skills and techniques I learned from Lia, I now have a much easier time getting into 'the zone' every time I sit down to meditate :) thanks Lia!
Jonathan Goldstein
Really enjoyed my meditation lessons! I highly recommend.
Noreen H.
I enjoyed my lesson with Lia very much. I am very happy with the artwork I was able to produce at the lesson. I would highly recommend Lia to any new student.

I'm a Self-taught Digital artist/painter, for the past 6 years of my life, I have had to fight and research for every bit of skill I've gained. Why do I bring that up? Because This means I know what it is to start from nothing and to be lost in the vast world of information. I want to be the one to help others find their way through art.

I believe anyone can learn art! Even when you learn differently than others, or "don't have talent". Art can be demystified, and is accessible to you! Together we can find the path to art that is right just for you.

I try to keep lessons fun and exploitive while still teaching the important fundamentals of art that will make your art head and heels above many other artists, and will allow you to create things from your imagination!

I was child 9 of 14 all of us from the same mother and father, that is an interesting fact, or so many tell me. At the very least it has given me some unique skills for dealing with life. Well, that and being homeschooled. When I decided that I wanted to learn art, I undertook the endeavor of my ow

"Mr. Ohashi is an excellent teacher! He is incredibly engaging and encouraging with my children. He comes up with the most unique and creative projects that the kids love. He has also begun teaching technique as my daughter gets older. She has taken lessons with him for 4 years and has really improved and become very serious about art. She was even chosen for a citywide art competition which I attribute to his teaching."

"I’ve been wanting to learn to paint for years but it seemed like an expensive thing to get into. Eileen provides materials for beginners which is really helpful because you feel like you can experiment more without making a big commitment. Her lessons are challenging but relaxed and her paintings are awesome and inspiring!"

"Mr. Ohashi is an amazing teacher of art. Having studied at one of the most prestigious art schools in Japan, he achieved a high level of technique and philosophy in the basics of creating art. Moreover, his success at teaching children in the US comes from his natural ability to break down complex ideas into easily understandable ones. A kind man and a joy to learn from, I highly recommend Mr. Ohashi if you want to learn any aspect of painting."

"What a brilliant artist! Joe went over everything an artist needs to know about color. He took the time to explain color psychology, pigment, characteristics, color schemes, color mixing, shadows, highlights, ect! He provided a solid understanding of color knowledge that I can put to effective use. Thank you Joe!!!!!!!!!!"

"I haven't picked up art supplies since high school and Eileen was such a delight and was so supportive of my pitifully lapsed skills. Her studio is everything you imagine a Brooklyn artists studio would be. Would like a little Eileen sitting on my shoulder guiding me through life, like she did through my painting lesson. 10/10 will take lessons again."
