Many people think they can't draw. I used to be one of them. Now, I know that everyone can draw, they just need to learn how to translate what they see into an image. We will start with contour, move into gesture, create the illusion of 3D form using value and color, composition and even create the illusion of space. We will use a variety of media including graphite, charcoal, pastels (oil and chalk) and even use paint. It's really lots of fun!

Absolutely fantastic! John was amazing with my son, asked him what he wanted to learn and then started to show him different ways to help his technique. High recommend John!
Byron
John was a very patient and helpful instructor. Two of the participants had no water color experience and he provided them with a good understanding of the concepts as well as providing most helpful examples of how to actually do water colors. Will definitely ask John for a follow up session if we return to Las Vegas in the future.

I graduated from the Harvard Graduate School of Education in June 2007 with a Master in Education (Arts in Education) degree. During my studies I worked in the framework of the Artful Adventures Program (Museum of Fine Arts in Boston), which provides object - based learning and hands on artistic experiences for elementary and middle school kids. My own research was about “Creative Insight in Practice" and "Acquiring English as a Second Language and Developing Self-Esteem through the Idiom of Art". I have more than a two decades-long experience in painting, drawing, printmaking and installation work.

Kerstin has been a great tutor for our son. Not only does he enjoy working with Kerstin, but his German skills have noticeably improved (along with his grades). Kerstin is a great communicator, always on-time, never cancelled and very easy to work with. I would highly recommend Kerstin.

Kerstin is a fantastic teacher. She connected right away with my daughter Chloe who is 8 years old and immediately engaged and had her learning German after 1 lesson. She is punctual and professional. I highly recommend her.

Stacy is a fantastic art teacher for my daughter (6 years old)!! She’s engaging, patient, and friendly, and has the right teaching skills to work with small kids. I was concerned that an online art lesson might not work too well for this young age, and that my daughter might not like it, but it worked perfectly, and my daughter absolutely loves it! Technically speaking it was super easy to download the app and log into the lesson. We are so glad we signed up and are taking lessons with Stacy. We highly recommend her as an art teacher!
Laura
A million times THANK YOU for working so well with my 15yo ASD son. He absolutely loves drawing + animating and looks forward to his time with you. Thank you for encouraging his interests, challenging him and fostering a safe space for him to explore his ideas and create awesome art! He is always so proud to show off his work.

"Great teacher and a wonderful experience. My daughter loves to go to class and have lots of fun while learning new techniques.
Kids are actually exposed to various mediums. The really good part is you can also see older kids working on really good pieces of art, which is a very motivating for the younger ones. Personally Ms Maggie is very kind and gentle and a pleasure to know. I recommend any parent looking to enroll their kids into an art program to take them to her class and you WON'T regret it!"
