Sofia began studying artist development and singing with me in 2019. She is a fine piano player and overall artist. She has shown great ambition and creativity every lesson. Her buoyant personality brings a freshness to each lesson and with 20+ years experience behind this statement, I believe she would make a fabulous instructor for any child or light hearted adult wanting to start something new. She is well read and full of great information with awesome communication skills to share it.

Deron is an absolute joy to work with. My dude ran off immediately after the lesson to draw some more. Now that's a positive review. :)
Nancy
It was great! Deron had me pick out a subject and send him the image ahead of time. He had it printed out and ready to go when I got there, along with the paint colors, brushes and everything. Very impressed with his organization. He went at just the right speed for me and we actually made good progress. I'm looking forward to the next lesson!

I draw based on what I see pertaining to where light hits an object, the shape of objects, and the distance between spaces. Drawing what you see in front of you can be as easy as following simple techniques and choosing the right colors.

About Constance

I have been working with children for the past 20 years and have been an artist for 30 years. Art is a form of emotional expression and not just about how well you can draw. I believe that everyone can draw, we may have different ways of creating art, but each person is capable of artistic expressi

I’ve been teaching for a year and welcome students of all levels! My lessons are all about training your eye and mastering the foundational elements of art so you can draw anything from life our you imagine. I bring lots of practical techniques and old school methods introduced in a modern way that takes into account the interest of my students and keeps the learning fresh and fun.

At all of my lessons I introduce the works of an established modern or classical artist that either exemplifies the lesson of the day or is someone whose work or life story I think my student might find interesting. We don’t just learn how to draw or paint but also learn how to talk about art and make it more a part of your everyday life.

About David

I have a bachelors degree in printmaking and oil painting and spent some time in Florence, Italy studying painting and drawing by studying the High Renaissance masters. Currently I draw and paint in my spare time. I love teaching art as a way to connect with other artist and creative people who lik

I was getting ready for a trip with my friends to tour all over in Russia this Summer and I found Sergey and he taught me a great deal of what I will need to communicate enough to get a round in Russia...
He is an excellent teacher Thank you Sergey for your great help in teaching me I know this will be a trip to remember thanks to you...
Patti C.
Terrible experience. Couldn't connect online, 20 minutes after start time called him and he tried to assist, but ended up doing a "phone lesson" which consisted of a question and answer time where I had to come up with my own questions. To conclude we were told to go out and take some pictures on our own and learn from experimenting on our own taking pictures of all kinds of things. We could then download them, send to him, and he could critique.
Not what I expected. Not necessarily his fault, but Going to ask for refund

when I made an appointment, I asked if Sergey was familiar with my camera and they said yes. It seemed new to him. But after talking about my fijifilm x100F, I am returning the camera. So overall I did like Sergey and look forward to my next Hour

"Maggie is an amazing teacher. Both my kids love going to her class. My son was the first one to join and has been learning from her for little over an year. In my son's words, "Ms. Maggie is the most inspirational teacher who has increased their interest in art more than ever before." I knew my son had an artist within him but since he has been going to Maggie I see such a tremendous improvement in his work. I see him understanding the techniques and applying whatever he has learned in his different works. His progress motivated me to enroll my younger one too."
