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. :)

I know noting about drawing and just after the first lesson I feel like I have some some sense of how to look at objects and try to draw them

Eileen is an amazing tutor and she had been very professional and thoughtful even before the course was conducted by discussing the right material to use during the class. Her presentation is very detailed and easy to follow, she is very patient as well which made us very comfortable during the session. Definitely recommend!

Painting is a great creative outlet for people to spend time relaxing and make something beautiful that brings you pride and joy. Anyone can paint! All it takes is time and a willingness to make mistakes and learn from them. I’ve been painting for 8 years and teaching for 1. I welcome all students who are interested in picking up painting as new hobby or returning after a long time away. We’ll build out your painting techniques and color theory so you can paint from real life or something abstract.

"What a brilliant artist! Joe went over everything an artist needs to know about color. He took the time to explain color psychology, pigment, characteristics, color schemes, color mixing, shadows, highlights, ect! He provided a solid understanding of color knowledge that I can put to effective use. Thank you Joe!!!!!!!!!!"

"Our first "lesson" was more of a "get to know each other" and "painting goals" lesson in my office.

Renata has a fantastic life story and based on our mutual first interview and philosophy comparison I believe she will be an excellent teacher to help me reach my artistic goals!

I look forward to much further work and discussion with her!"
