I like to take pride in making my students feel secure and knowing and seeing the improvement they make within each session. I will be handing out a materials list prior to our lessons. Most students see a huge leap in drawing within the the first lesson! Class starts out usually with me giving a 1 hour demonstration on what I expect them to do as I cover and explain my entire process and thought and calculations that goes into drawing and painting. For the rest of the class I will be besides the student as they work giving them one on one pointers and as much help and explanation as they need in order to improve. Students start out with learning how to look and draw what they observe accurately by first working on simple geometric shapes such as spheres, cubes. We then will move on to Cast studies and after a few months of studying we will start on figures and portraits.

I've been doing water color painting for years and would love to help you.
For the basics of watercolor you'll learn color theory, how to use paint brushes, techniques etc. The beginner lessons are more organized lessons and structured to go over the basics.
But, the more advanced is where you come to me with what you'd like to paint, and I'll give you techniques and tips on your projects.
I've been sewing since I was 13. I've sewn things over the years such as dresses, pajamas. I do a lot of tailoring things too. I just love to sew, and I love teaching people to sew too! The way that I teach is to help the student develop their own style. I have students work on their own indivi

Educated in Europe, I was always inspired by my teachers and travels to continue honing my artistic skills. With practice, anybody can develop their own style, and I believe it's my duty to pass on the knowledge that was instilled in me as a young artist.
Expression of one's soul in art may be sometimes stronger than words, something that psychologists have proven for years.
"Sip and paint" classes are available for groups.
Before reading about me, I'd like to share up front the honor that my newest student, R., has brought to me by choosing to learn Romanian. Nothing special so far except that he is 100 years old!!!! Yes, you read that correctly: a century old. He is the outmost inspiring person in my life by teachin

I can cover just the photo/camera end for you. And, or, can teach you the digital computer skills you need to bring you images to the next level.
I will teach you how to reveal your own photographic "eye". That is, now to use the camera as an extension of your expression, how to take what you see, and put inside a frame.
I teach photography concepts from the art form, and from basic through advanced technical and aesthetic.
You will learn how a camera lens is much much more than just a zoom closer/farther tool for your scene. The lens you choose is vital towards helping you achieve the vision you are bringing to your work. Camera exposure is similar.
I will also teach you how to "see" your scene or subject as "values" of shades of black, white, and the grays between. This ...
I can't wait to work with you! I am passionate about the subjects I teach, and find nothing can compare to seeing a student "get it", so they may too enjoy the passion that comes from learning and doing something they love. Everything I teach I've learned most completely by doing as a Profession
Thanks again for your time and info yesterday. I will email you soon, and we will figure out when we should meet for our next class.

I have studied and practiced various forms of calligraphy and am very experienced in these styles of calligraphy: modern calligraphy, hand lettering, brush lettering, faux calligraphy, and beginner Copperplate calligraphy.
See photos in profile to view my work!
I specialize in teaching students the basics of calligraphy and building the necessary skills to develop their own personal style and create designs that they love! I also teach Ipad calligraphy using the Apple pencil. In addition, I teach students basics of scanning and digitizing their artwork to create designs such as prints, mugs, shirts, greeting cards, and more.
If you’re a beginner, you can expect to cover the basic strokes of calligraphy and receive practice sheets and resources to practice on your own and develop your personal style. I will also recommend best supplies to use to begin your calligraphy journey. You will soon be able to create beautiful calligraphy handwriting and designs on your own!
