Melissa is patient, explains the concepts very well, she is hands on and makes the lessons very entertaining and dynamic. The way she selects the material for her students she finds the right balance between effective learning, fun and interesting. We are very fortunate to have her as a piano teacher.
Sevval N.
She was so kind and helpful toward my kids for the fist day.
Youjia S.
My daughter struggled to stay focused for the whole one hour. It would be better to have video conference option so she can see the teacher.

I didn’t expect to learn that much from an online lesson. She is amazing and puts immense amount in preparation for sessions by providing videos , demos to give me ideas and incentives for learning . I never thought some one can portray concepts so well on line .

Great teacher. Very experienced and my 12-year old daughter learned a lot.
Tony
I've taken private lessons in the past, some were good, some not so good. I've always felt that other instructors followed a very generic blueprint during their private lessons. With Roya, I've never felt that way. The lessons are designed in a way that I felt as if I'm progressing as a artist. Do yourself a favor, and sign up. You will not regret it. :)

WATERCOLOR PAINTING LESSONS

Abstract Painting uses a visual language of form, color and line to create a composition which may exist with a degree of independence from visual references in the world. Abstract art, non figurative art, nonobjective art, and nonrepresentational art are loosely related terms. They are similar, but perhaps not of identical meaning.

A Complete List of Painting Supplies that every Beginning Watercolor Painter needs

1. Favorite brands Daniel Smith Water-Soluble Oil Paints & Mediums, and Holbein Duo Aqua Water Soluble Oil

2. Proper Painting Brushes
I‘d suggest six total in a range of sizes: two size 2 brushes, two size 6 brushes, and two size 12 brushes. One of each pair should be a flat brush (with a squared-off brush tip) and the other should be a filbert brush (with a slightly rounded tip).

3. Newspaper
4. A charcoal pencil
5. A “palette”
6. Comfortable, messy clothes
7. A painter’s easel
8. Canvas (or other painting surface)
9. Water ...

I love Mayra. She taught me a lot more than I thought in just one class. I have a painting that I will hang on my wall. Never thought one class would do that. She has great personality and great skills.
Elena & Erik S.
Mayra was very helpful. She had a challenge with us because we we're weren't sure exactly what we wanted to learn. Mayra worked with us and demonstrated some new techniques and ideas based on where we already were as (very amateur) artists. She was helpful, very encouraging, and easy to work with. Thank you!
Marilyn B.
It was a great experience meeting Mayra! She's an excellent teacher, and is a very patient, nice person. I learned some interesting techniques from her, and enjoyed my lesson with Mayra very much!!!

"As an adult whose only prior painting classes were in High School many years ago, Jo was able to quickly pass on some basic technical skills in watercolouring that will allow me to practice effectively prior to our next class. She has a very confident and calm teaching style making the session very enjoyable. I certainly would recommend her to others looking to get back into painting or further their skills."
