About Marina
As a child of five years old I was brought by my mom to Gulyaev’s Art Studio and this famous Ukrainian artist involved me in the marvelous world of fine art.

In high-school, I participated in a federally-funded program for the Gifted and Talented in Visual Art. After graduation I won a huge competition and was admitted as a student of the Architectural department of the Kiev Architectural Civil University. In 2001, I become a student, hand-selected by the director of extraordinary Master degree program of Visual Communication, offered by Syracuse University (Syracuse, NY). In master classes, we learned from each other and worked with the best illustrators: Murray Tinkelman and Cris Payne, Dave Passalaqua and Sano Kazu (Kazuhini), Bunny (Alice) Carter and Bob d’Sey, I love to learn new skills and keep learning new styles and techniques
all the time. This love has inspired my beloved students to do the same.

I've known Marina for a very long time and while I haven't taken any classes yet, I most definitely would recommend her to anyone who's looking for a good art teacher. She is a very talented artist and has a rare ability to inspire people to be creative. Her students' paintings are awesome and always make me smile looking at them.

About Nicole
I love art and I am passionate about making things beautiful. That spills over into Graphic design, Painting and more: I have 20+ years as a graphic designer, photographer 10+ years, artist/painter. I have been instructing for over 6 years. All of my artistic positions led me to run a print shop for several years so I know what you need to prep files for printing, photography, page layout, web and much more so that your files meet industry standards. If your a fast learner, I can go at a faster pace, if you need more time, I am fine with that too. My goal is for you to learn well, advance and put the skills I teach you to use. Then we will layer that info and move on. I'll incorporate reviewing what we worked on before in the future lessons. I want you to be able to put to practice what I teach you so that you can successfully manage on
your own in that area.

I love being outside, I love the water and get inspired by nature. I am not a camping type person but could sleep outside nightly (on a screened in porch, LOL). I love to enjoy life and want you to enjoy learning something new as well.

Nicole professionally layed out, designed, and printed the obituary of my husband using Adobe Photoshop. Her helpful, yet sensitive suggestions regarding picture arrangements on the pages of the obituary were appreciated. She was timely and easy to work with. I highly recommend her as an instructor.

About Joey
Hello Artist-in-Progress,

We are all artists-in-progress because, no matter how good we are, we can always get better!

I'm Mr. Joey and I love art and I love teaching art! I am a graduate of The Art Institute and an artist and animator that creates art in pencil, charcoal, pastel, watercolor, and digital mediums.

I recommend that classes are *at least* 1.5 hours (and I really recommend 2 hours!) because that's what's needed to critique homework assignments, warmup, and do the work for the class, and not be rushed.

Classes I teach are:

• Drawing Fundamentals
• Advanced Drawing
• People and Anatomy
• Portrait Drawing
• Cartoon Characters for Animation
• Character Design
• 2D Animation
• Digital Painting in Photoshop
• Digital Animation

Please view samples of my work and contact me with any questions you may hav
e.

I look forward to helping you develop your art skills and express your creativity!

Mr. Joey

Join me for the creative unleashing of highly effective processes of learning success. Your instruction will include: A. creative problem solving (unleashing the genius within) B. formation; a foundation is planned (architect) C. building; drafts are written (carpenter) D. finishing; the writing is polished (finishing editor/proofreader) I've used these guiding principles countless times in my life. Just as a jeweler would not be able to sell rough stones, Jill would not have been able to make anything in the publishing field without employing these principles. Her college papers would have been fair to dull rocks. She can say this as the daughter of a bricklayer who was the son of a stonemason in a familial line that dates back to middle 1600. So, of course, I did learn about laying bricks and throwing rocks too. Not very many structures
stand the test of time when we throw rocks (rough drafts). Only with this brick, mortar, and finish will the building stand. But enough about my lineage. My capstone point is that the finishing point of any building or writing should communicate a great product. In creating this description I had the above principles in mind. My college papers, business papers, copywriting, web designs, resumes, and even informal conversations are inclusive of this process of which proofreading is a vital component. Why? Well, I might want to throw a rock at myself if I assume myself incapable of accomplishing as much. And as the daughter of a bricklayer, I think I know about bricks and buildings, and mortar, and capstones such as proofreading. So now at my concluding paragraph contains the capstone of what is called proofreading. Proofreading, as my gem of a teacher told me, is constructed with similar principles. It contains a precise methodology which assures great communication. I would like to involve you in this structure. Please step in the door so I may explain the steps involved in editing and proofreading as art, the elements and principles of Art and English as your toolkit, and design as your structured building of success!

About Emily
Greetings! Do you love to draw or paint either digitally or with traditional mediums? Do you or your kids love cartoons, anime/manga, or comics? How about figure drawing, or lovely nature landscapes? Drawing animals perhaps? How about portraits? Well, if you answered 'yes!' to any of these, then I'm the art teacher for you.

My name is Emily Cammisa, and I follow Bob Ross's philosophy that art is a pursued interest, and anyone who has that invested interest and willingness to practice the craft can get good at it. I've helped people of all ages go from saying "I can't even draw a stick figure!" to "I can't believe I did that!" as they proudly show me their work. I have a bachelor's degree in fine art from Skidmore College and 10 years experience with freelance illustration work and teaching. My goal is to share my love of art with you
and build your artistic skill level to wherever you want it to be. Whether it's just a hobby, or a potential career for you, I'm here to help.

What age groups do I teach, you ask? Well, I love teaching kids 5+ and adults alike how to draw and color like a professional artist. I also specialize in teaching people with autism. There's no better therapy than art; it truly is food for the soul. I also make my lessons very affordable and convenient by traveling to my student's homes with all the art supplies every week; rain, snow, or shine. I also teach at the College of Saint Rose every July, so I'm great with large groups in addition to doing private lessons.

Sound good? Great! Let's get drawing and painting. I look forward to bringing out the creativity in you (or your kids!)

Emily works with my son developing his drawing skills before he leaves for college to study digital animation. He really needed to work on illustration skills and Emily has been amazing! I can’t believe how quickly his skills are improving!! But more importantly to me is that my son enjoys the lessons. He is very comfortable working with Emily and his confidence has grown in the process! I can not speak highly enough about Emily as a teacher!! She has a very calm and supportive approach which is perfect for my son. My son does not drive so it is really convenient that she is willing to travel to my house for lessons!

My daughter first met Emily through a summer camp that she participated in. She came home excited and told me that we HAD TO take lessons from her! She has been taking drawing lessons from Emily for the past year and has grown so much in skill! Emily is a patient, kind and caring teacher. She really has a wonderful way of connecting with her students and is supportive of their art style. I would highly recommend Emily!

I'm a professional photographer at Charles LeRette Photography and I like teaching people how to take better pictures. I'm not cheap, I'm very good. It's not my job to teach you how to use your camera, that's what the manual is for, but as long as you have a thorough knowledge of how to use your camera I can teach you how to take stunning photos with it.

About Eduardo
I am a self-taught artist that has been drawing/painting for as long as I can remember. I always have found art as a creative outlet and have inspired many of the people close to me to try out themselves and ended up loving it.

I have taught classes of both adults and kids ranging from kindergarten all the way to high school in group settings.

The classes are always fun because I like to play their favorite music to stimulate a creative mood.

The type of lessons can range from beginner techniques to advanced depending on your the students goals, but regardless a fun experience.

Some of the mediums I teach are acrylic, oil, pastels, color pencil, chalk, charcoal and mix media.

About Tori
I am a professional artist and musician in Chattanooga, TN! I have been teaching art and music for six years in California and Tennessee. I have been painting since I was big enough to hold a paintbrush and playing the harp for over 15 years. I have a degree from Stanford University in Art Practice (Painting) and studied and performed under the tutelage of Marjorie Chauvel at Stanford University.

My harp students can expect fun weekly lessons that go over basic harp technique, music theory, sight reading, and music history. Beyond that, all your lessons will be tailored to YOUR music goals. Do you want to learn to arrange covers of your favorite songs? Let's get to it! I supplement my lessons by teaching good habits for practicing, exercises and stretches to minimize muscle fatigue, and the basics of how to find performance opportunit
ies to share your love of the harp with the world!

My art students can expect similarly tailored lessons. I teach most forms of visual art from oil painting to sculpture to photography to drawing. Once we've talked about your goals and hopes and dreams as a new artist, we will work together to develop a skillset in creativity that will last a lifetime.
