I've been drawing my whole time practically, and it's something that I always want to be doing more. Whether it's looking outside at the still landscape, or recreating a moving scene, drawing has always been a passion of mine.

I can help you with putting what you see in your mind onto paper more genuinely. We'll work on perspective, scale, color gradients, shading, detailing, and much more.

About Jonathan
I see each lesson with a student as another opportunity to help facilitate realization within them. Now in my fourth year as a professional freelance performing and teaching artist living in New York City, I currently hold a private studio of over 20 pupils, ages 6 to 65, professing a wide range of topics rooted in the subject matters of music, the arts, and spirituality.

Most of the subjects I teach are music related, in which I have over 6 years of Conservatory training, a Bachelor's and Master's degree, as well as over 15 years experience performing, recording, and competing on an international level. However, my interests, practices, and skillsets do extend beyond sound and visual art, and in the realm of spirituality.

I specialize in the following areas of musical study: General Music, Composition, Ear Training, Music History,
Music Theory, Sight Singing, and Songwriting. I also specialize in the following instruments: Trumpet and Piano/Keyboards. As a trumpeter, I have competed twice in international competitions presented by the International Trumpet Guild, and have participated in two audition based international intensive programs: at the School for Improvisational Music, and at the Banff Center in Alberta Canada. I was one of only two jazz trumpeters in the world to receive an audition for the 2014 Juilliard Artist Diploma Program in Jazz Trumpet, and besides touring as a musician in over 5 countries, I have served as an educator for the Afro-Latin Jazz Alliance created by GRAMMY-winning pianist Arturo O'Farrill, as well as the Gramercy Brass Orchestra of New York City.

I have also been practicing various forms of meditation practices and Yoga practices for the past 3 years. My influences span from Astral Projection to Reiki, to Vipassana Meditation, to Visualization Techniques, and much more. I believe and live by the idea that creativity is an energy that flows through us, and one's creative abilities can be improved and expanded, through the emotional body, which is influenced by one's perceptions. Throughout my training in music and the arts, I have realized that creative flow and love for what one is and does can be applied to anything in life.

Because of my 9+ years experience as a professional artist living in New York City, my students receive both guidance in discovering their own voice and comfort within their desired field of practice, and also practical approaches to retain and utilize their training and pre-ordained skill sets, with self-application and diligence. Through study with me, my students enable themselves to swiftly make progress and move toward a life of renewed purpose and fulfilment. Through specific assignments, exercises, and practices my students foster a real relationship with their instruments, and themselves, thus unlocking their creative minds, for usage in all aspects of their lives.

I teach out of a my home apartment studio on the upper east side, complete with weighted 88-key digital piano, Bose high quality speakers, recording equipment, as well as musical media, and tablature spanning many musical genres, cultures and time periods. I also am equipped with a spacious floor space for Yoga, Pilates, Weight Lifting, Meditation, and more. Additionally, I am able to travel to any location within the five boroughs for an additional travel fee (TBD based on location).

I look forward to helping you realize your potential! Let's get started...

I would highly recommend Jonathan as a music teacher. Jonathan is absolutely passionate about music, which is evident by his enthusiastic and energetic teaching techniques. He is very patient with my five year old and encourages her to get her very best effort. Jonathan customizes the music and lessons for my daughter’s skill level while at the same time provides challenges to keep the learning process interesting. In a short period of time, my daughter's keyboard playing abilities have dramatically increased. I am very grateful to Jonathan for making learning fun for my daughter, who always looks forward to her lessons!

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.

Would you like to learn to draw the world around you? Look no further! I am a professional, exhibiting visual artist and drawing is my passion! I have a Masters in Education and have been teaching for over 10 years. I have experience with adults and children alike and absolute beginners are welcome. I will design a personalized curriculum to fit your needs. I will show you how to train your hand to work with your eyes, how to draw light and shadow, perspective, contours, how to use your materials, and much much more!

About Jessica
I am a visual artist who has been exhibiting my artwork across the US since 2009 and teaching since 2006. I got my BA from Vassar College, and a Masters in Education through the NYC Teaching Fellows program. I am deeply passionate about drawing and love to share this passion with others. I believe that art isn't for the talented few but for the passionate many and what counts most of all is that you're having fun!

My drawings tend to celebrate the beautiful and surprising in the mundane. I have worked in a variety of media but my preferred material is good old-fashioned pencil on paper. I have had solo and group exhibitions, my work has been published in print and online, one of my drawings is on the cover of a philosophy book, I have exhibited at several art fairs, and I have won many fellowships, grants, and artist residencies.

Our drawing lessons will begin with learning to use the most basic materials: charcoal, erasers, pencil and paper. We will spend a lot of time learning the art of looking because above all, drawing is about observation and translating what you see.
You will begin to notice improvements in your skills after the first class!

I look forward to drawing with you.

Jessica is simply outstanding!!! She got right to the heart of what my children needed to work on to improve their drawing, and she was able to work with a range of abilities, attention spans, etc. Within minutes she was able to draw out the tentative artist in each of her three young students (ages 9-11), and you could see the difference in confidence in just one lesson!! She is smart, fun, flexible--you really could not find a better instructor!!!

Jessica is a GREAT drawing teacher! My two daughters aged 7 and 9 have been having lessons with Jessica for a couple of months and she has done such an excellent job of catering to their very different personalities and preferred learning styles. She is so patient and calm. She has taught them various techniques, including how to work with charcoal, and they have both improved so much in such a short time. My kids really look forward to their lesson every time, and carry on with their projects when the lesson is over. I highly recommend her!

Want to learn how to draw and paint and you don't know where to start? Interested in improving your drawing skills? I will help you to train your eye to easily see shadows/light transition to create shapes and volumes. You will master useful drawing and painting techniques that will allow you to express your vision. I'm working with graphite, charcoal, pen and ink wash for drawing and oil materials for painting. Shoot me a message to see if we're a good match!

About Mariana
I am a professional artist. I've been studying representative fine art at the Art Students League of New York since 2013.

My students can expect to improve week to week in their drawing and painting techniques. While gaining knowledge of the fundamental principles of perception—light, plane-structure, tonal value, perspective, proportion—students will learn to construct images that realistically and accurately interpret objects in space. This solid foundation will enable students to express their personal creative vocabulary more clearly and effectively.

I teach students of all different ages and experience levels.

My personal passion is realism in classical and contemporary art but I firmly believe that great technique is essential to any and every style. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better artist!

Lessons with Mariana were very helpful. I started as a beginner and she helped me to learn basic theory behind drawing, as well as to develop my skills and gain confidence. I studied graphite anatomical drawing and advanced a lot in that technique since we started a year ago.

I am currently the Visual Arts Teacher as well as the Director of Advisory at Northside Charter High School in Brooklyn, NY. I have helped develop the school’s culture significantly over the past five years I have been there.

My mission at Northside Charter High School was to create a curriculum that shows our students that their presence is essential to the ever-changing arts community. This led to creating the curriculum for Northside Television, which is Northside's first web-based school news network. NTV has grown to become a staple in Northside’s community and has brought about positive changes to the culture of the school. My master's thesis based on this course entitled, “Media Production and its Role in Preparing High School Students to be 21st Century Learners”, provides data on how our program has brought new skill-sets to the senior cohort. Students of all backgrounds are on the screen and are representing their community, their ideals, and their concerns.

Due to the success of our program, PBS chose Northside to become an official NewsHour Student Reporting Lab. CNN Director and three-time Emmy award-winning director, Luanne Dietz, mentored our seniors. Students also have the opportunity to utilize PBS’s resources by offering them internships and personal recommendations.

I’ve also worked in conjunction with local Brooklyn galleries such as the RAM Gallery and 630 Flushing to provide Portfolio Development students with the opportunity to display and sell their artwork.

She is a well versed artist with many different skills, though where she shines is in drawing which has helped me in my understanding in the concepts of light and shadow, gesture and figure drawing, as well as how different strokes and the effects they carry, whether using graphite, charcoal, pastels, and other mediums. It all came to use in my college application process for developing my portfolio as I was accepted into a variety of colleges and universities across the country

Ms Goldenbaum has been by far the best artistic navigator. Not only has she taught me how to stroke a brush, she taught me how to really tap in with my mind and become one with the art itself. If it wasn’t for Ms Goldenbaum, I wouldn’t know as much as I do now about things like abstract art , water colors and primary colors. Shouts to Ms G!
