I have spent 20 years dedicating my life to both digital and tradition art.

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 drawing all my life and still enjoy it. It's a great pastime and a creative way to express yourself. You'll need, pencils, large pad of paper and to keep a sketch book for this class. You'll learn different techniques and ways to see things on paper. If you want classes in the Manhattan Beach library, let me know, and give me some time, so I can schedule a room there in advance.

About Katherine
I look forward to tutoring you. I teach Graphic Design, Adobe Creative Suite, Drawing, PowerPoint and more.

I graduated from the Art Center College of Design, in Pasadena, CA. and later took some additional classes at UCLA. I taught graphic design and illustration at Woodbury University. I've worked for advertising agencies and large corporations.

I now have my own business and also enjoy teaching young students through adults.

Businesses and academic institutions around the world use PowerPoint. It is important at all levels to be an effective communicator and presenter.

I will use my academic knowledge joined with my new world digital technology skills, to make you able to express yourself.

About Sharron J.

Brooklyn, MD

View Full Profile

In my spare time, I've taught for the last 15 years. I've tutored actual BSA students. I love drawing. I love teaching art. It is an expression of an individual's personal journey.

The most fabulous thing about being an artist is that boundaries regarding creativity are non-existent. The artist is always in a state of learning. Art is a progressive practice that takes time to develop.

Materials are not included.

Drawing lessons will be assessed based on the individual's current abilities and their goals.

About Sharron
My resume includes graduating from the Baltimore School for the Arts and continued studies at the Maryland Institute College of Art until I decided I didn’t want to be a “Starving Artist”. So, I graduated from the University of Baltimore with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Business Administration with a minor in Human Resources Management. My education also includes 27 graduate credits that were leading to a Master’s in Public Administration when I decided to discontinue that path. After twenty-five years in the public sector, I decided to revisit my passion for art in my spare time. As a youngster, I remember wanting to teach art in schools, but I did not want the restrictions that are present in the classrooms and more so today. All forms of art is a freeing practice that is practiced and developed over time. Art is very therapeutic.

I've taught and currently consult with former and current Baltimore School for the Arts visual arts students. For mor information, website at jfa-studios.com.

I have over 30 years experience with painting, sketching, and Color theory. My passion is to share my knowledge and understanding. I have been consistently teaching groups and a one on one basis for the past 3 years. I understand from an early age the impact art has. I specialize each class according to the need and desire of each of my students. I will creat an art platform so it will be easy to reference back to. My student I specialize are of all ages and beginners/intermediate. I absolutely love what I do! Let’s get started!!

About Andrea
Her talent was discovered by her mentor, her grandfather, also an artist.She had an eye for color. She could draw anything as an exact match. Eventually this amazing talent and passion translated into paintings. This connection with colliding colors is what initially set her work apart in shows and competitions and has led to a growing following of galleries and collectors alike.

Andrea has been featured in many publications in and around the art community. She’s donated paintings to many organizations in Dallas, TX, Riverside, CA and in the Orange County area.

She has since independently illustrated and published her own children’s book. Andrea has decided to follow her heart, her passion, and her dreams by teaching others.

My favorite and most enjoyable hobby is to draw so it is nothing but fun and enjoyable to have art lessons with me. I love to sow beginner drawers little tricks and techniques that can be used to create a master piece that the student even know he or she could do.

About Anthony
Hi, I am Anthony Garcia. I am 27 years old and have been drawing on and off all my life. Within the past three years I started drawing everyday and dramatically increased my artistic talent. I still remember my tough years in drawing and remember it vividly . I feel like this helps with teaching drawing because I can relate to errors and such that get made by begginner artist. I can teach the fundamentals or jump straight into the fun and learn as a you progress. My favorite style of drawing is realism . I enjoy drawing portraits the most and my favorite media is graphite and charcoal. I am willing to work with prices so give me a challenge and I will conquer it. Thank you.

As a professional artist, I have exhibited in 30 exhibitions including in Europe. I most recently worked as a photographer, artist and writer on a documentary in the American West featuring artists working to save wild horses. I also was the director of an art program in Santa Barbara that taught the arts to over 500 youth for ten years.

I am a long time teacher with a Ph.D. My dissertation was a research study looking at the value of the arts in education. I often work on projects nationally as a contributor for various non profit causes that use the arts to bring attention to various worthwhile issues.

After 25 years of teaching in many settings, including a university, an arts project, and at both private and public schools as well as giving private lessons, it has been my experience that art is a skill that anyone can learn with support. Picasso was absolutely correct when he said " Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up!"

pport. Picasso was absolutely correct when he said " Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up!"

I have a Bachelor's degree in Fine Art from University of California at Santa
Barbara, A Master's degree in Organizational Non Profit Management and a Ph.D. in Human Development. All of my work and studies have involved art, photography and writing and often non-profit causes.

I teach students from all levels of art experience, from those who have never attempted to draw, to students who have many years experience looking to exhibit their art or make a living from it, I also teach art history in a fun way that helps you learn from painters who have created styles that help artists learn ways to improve their own work. I consider sharing my love of the arts a privilege!

I have taught many “so-called” Non- Artists to draw and paint and sculpt and have encouraged many others with art experience who are longing to further or start their art careers.

All that said, the most important thig I have to pass along is my personal LOVE of art and my commitment to encouraging others to find their own gift of creative expression! My art students do NOT need special skills or talents just a willingness to want to express themselves! Art is a funny thing, the more you enjoy it and learn it in a relaxed way, the better your actual art turns out when you make it. Hope to meet you and teach you soon!
