Very personable and knowledgeable, having a conversation is easy as breathing.

Within the short amount of time I have been with Julie I have learned more than I could studying using YouTube.
She takes her time to make sure you understand the concept of not just photography but the art behind it as well. She's very informational and is always willing to help you achieve what ever your goal with photography may be. She goes above and beyond when it comes to teaching she may pack alot on at once but if you can take notes and study them on your down time you can truly learn alot in a short amount of time.
Jennifer B.
My first lesson was yesterday. Julie is very easy to talk to, which is great for someone as introverted as I am. She is thorough in gaining an understanding of what you want to learn and gives several “homework” assignments for you to work on before your next lesson. I’m looking forward to our next session.

I have been a professional painter artist and musician for 10 years. I received my BFA from SMU in Fine Art and Painting and have exhibited my work in galleries, shows, exhibitions and sold it at auction. My teachers have included Steve Wilder, Barnaby Fitzgerald, Bill Komodore, Massimo Lippi, Jay Sullivan, and others.

Plein Air, Still Life, and Figurative works are my specialties, but I have also studied the development of the abstract language.

I'm also acquainted with old master mediums and techniques such as egg tempera, grinding pigments, etc.

Great personality and knowledge of music, really makes the lessons very personalized, fun and interesting. Definitely a good choice!!

Perry takes the time to explain flamenco and related styles deeply and thoroughly. He also provides detailed micro-scale feedback on hand/arm placement, orientation, range and which muscle groups to engage. But more than the technical, he has an awesome vibe and makes learning guitar quite an enjoyable experience.

I've created many cartoons in the context of illustration, comics and 2D animation. My specialty is in expressions, character designs and story-telling.

My recent (on-going) achievement with cartooning includes a graphic novel/webcomic I've been working on, "Dinnersaurus Rex," with hundreds of subscribers across all websites it's been hosted on. I've also created many 2D animations for clients in the past.

My mission is to spread this knowledge of cartooning and to help achieve the goals of students.

Emily continues to be a great tutor for my daughter. She has incredible patience - especially since my daughter loves to chat - and has helped foster a strong passion for digital drawing in my daughter. Emily's skill with the tools makes it easy for my daughter to learn and experiment more on her own as well.
Jacob
Help me understand my flaws in drawing, and show me many pointers on how to improve like body proportions, outlines and how to use software like Krita. Overall was a very good learning experience!!
Allie
My daughter very much enjoyed the class and working with Emily. She learned a lot and is very excited for her next lesson.

I am both self-taught and studied again at various art schools, including the Art Students League of NY, Rhode Island School of Design, and the School of Visual Arts in NYC. I will be receiving my BFA from SVA in mid-2020.

I can help you understand Drawing and Painting inside and out. I can help you understand the key fundamental elements of art that will allow you to make the best works at the very best of your ability. Those fundamental elements of art include color theory, anatomy, perspective, and composition. I even wrote an article about color theory for a street art magazine (Look up "Color Theory" at Up Mag).

I can help you learn how to choose colors for the right situations and contexts. Color is a very complex endeavor, but if you learn it with me you will get to know and see color through experience of using the right colors, and the experience will feed into your perception of choosing the right colors, which will then enhance your experience of using colors, and so on.

About Chunbum

Hello! I am very enthusiastic about learning and teaching art. I came to USA from South Korea when I was a kid and wanted to study math and science! But, finding out that I was terrible in those two subjects, I felt unhappy and lost. Art was my way to stand out from the crowd, and it rescued me fro
