About Sarah
Hello, and thank you for visiting my page! I have been an artist for my whole life and I am passionate about sharing my love of creativity with others. I earned an MFA in Costume Design from UCLA in 2007 and have been a freelance costume designer, college professor, photographer, illustrator, and jewelry designer.

As much as I love to create, what I really love is to help somebody learn to do something they love and create something they can be proud of! I am happy teaching all ages, and I specialize in helping each student find his or her unique vision.

I can teach sewing by hand and on a machine, including how to read and understand the instructions in commercial patterns. Bring your project and I'll help you make it happen! I am highly skilled at teaching life drawing, as well as marker rendering and watercolor fashion illustr
ation. Photography is my other passion, and I look forward to helping you understand how to use a camera's many features, and your eye, to create art.

The two hour lesson was perfect for me. I needed a refresher course and Sarah reviewed all the areas of concern. At this time I do not have a follow up appointment set. I want to take what was discussed today and apply it to my sewing projects. I would definitely recommend Sarah for any of your sewing needs.

The teacher was very good and so patient with my pace. The only problem I had was the distance with traffic it was almost 2 hours to go and return.

About Kathy
I’m Kathy and I am a professional artist in San Francisco! I received my Masters of Fine Arts and the San Francisco Art Institute and my Bachelors degree at Skidmore College. I make painting and textile-based 3D installations and have shown widely in the Bay Area, New York, and Chicago. I was a 2016 Artist-In-Residence at Recology and a 2017 Artist-In-Residence at the Lucid Art Foundation. I also have some exciting opportunities on the horizon! I’m passionate about arts education, interdisciplinary thinking, art history, ecological stewardship, and color theory. I love teaching art!

I’ve taught a variety of ages and skill levels and care about each student as an individual artist and human being. I design individualized lesson plans for each student with creative, engaging assignments that focus on both technical skill and personal exp
ression. I love helping my students learn and grow as artists.

I’m passionate about art history and color theory. In our lessons, not only will you learn how to draw and paint, you will also learn the cultural history around the subject. I will show you historical and contemporary examples of artwork that fit thematically with our lessons. We will have engaging conversations about art while we draw and paint. I can also point you towards art openings happening around the Bay Area.

My personal teaching style is patient, constructive, and encouraging. With practice and hard work, I can help you achieve your goals.

Other things I love include: Spending time in the Great Outdoors, listening to Billie Holiday, and cooking elaborate meals!

Kathy was wonderful working with my son and really took the time to get to know him and his personal intetests. She then patiently guided him through some if the essentials of drawing while incorporating subject matter that would inspire and motivate him. I would highly recommend her if you are looking for personalized and knowledgeable instruction.

About David
Dedicated art professional with 18 years of experience in creating artwork utilizing various medias. In my early years I worked as an outsider artist giving watercolor lessons for Susan Edwards of the artist place called "The Art Attack in Sycamore Illinois. After some years of painting and displaying my work at outdoor art shows and inside some stores i went to Northern Illinois University and obtained my Bachelor of Fine Art in painting. I have joined art leagues and art guilds near where I live. I recommend the Kishwaukee Valley Art League and the Rockford Art guild. There i learned how to reach children and adults on how to get interested in painting. Strong competency in teaching and leading aspiring artists in group or individualized settings. In order to become a better artist you learn by drawing in a sketchbook from photos i
will assign every two weeks. If you think they are good then you will redraw them in a journal. We will critique them by email and make wonderful discoveries on how you are getting very good at becoming an artist.

Inside my art studio I have had artists stick to my belief that a sketchbook and a journal with pencils is the best way to improve.

Happy Drawing and remember my favorite words "Just Paint"!

David is an excellent artist who has years of experience in teaching art. I have been a student for 3 years and I have come so far as an artist. David has taught me how to see the world in a different light. I have and would recommend anybody who has an interest in art to take lessons from David. He is able to take anybody with the passion to become the artist they strive to be. He is an amazing teacher!

About Kristen
I live in a remote part of Northern California where the redwoods meet the Pacific Ocean. I have 2 son's 16 and 4 who I've homeschooled off and on throughout their lives. My 16 year old graduated high school early and is now pursuing a degree at College of the Redwoods. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree with an emphasis on photography and digital art.

I am a teacher by trade and profession. I've always had a natural ability combined with patience and understand thats allows me the to excel my students further beyond what they've thought possible. I've been a teacher of Arts at many private schools in Northern California for the last 20 years. Recently over this last year I have discovered the joys of teaching ESL online for a few large companies. I am really looking forward to working more one on one with my students as I feel this can
be very beneficial to those looking to really excel further in the english language.

Art is my passion
Learning is my journey
Teaching is in my DNA

About ALEXANDER
I have been playing music for 25 years.
During this time, I focused mainly electric bass and the Acoustic Guitar. I play rhythm guitar in a very busy World Fusion Flamenco Gypsy Jazz band, based in the SF Bay Area. I have learned a sure way to develop the building blocks for playing music. A way to practice and retain the information that you want to learn and quickly advance in your musical passion. I personally use these techniques and want to share them with you. Through patience and determination I will help you discover how to practice, develop technique and then enjoy and play music. I will answer your questions about your guitar from the simple to complex.
If you want to learn Gypsy Jazz, chords, rhythm and technique, how to play Blues, Rock, Funk or Reggae, or how to read chord charts and tablature, I want to help.
I am alwa
ys excited to work with beginners, so if you are very new to your instrument we can discuss the geography and mechanics of it as well. We will start with the basics then build upon ideas that will give you a holistic understanding of the guitar and how to play music.

"Practice makes perfect" but you need to know "what" and "how" to practice, too make the most of your time.

I would not say that it is easy to learn how to play music or play guitar but that it is completely worth the time that you devote to it.

Music, is a gift that will always give back, you give it to yourself and then share it with your friends and loved ones.
Music, you will have it for life.

Check out the music that I play.

Hi there! My name is Leigh and I take photos and videos for a living! I also teach yoga to kids and adults! Sometimes I get to combine my loves, and take photos and videos during all sorts of yoga classes. I've worked with kids many times, and am currently teaching a music video production class to a group of 3rd-5th graders. I've taught photography and photo editing classes before, at a summer camp that I used to work at in New York State. I would absolutely love to share my love of technical photography and editing with you!
