With the ease of accessibility with digital photography I believe everyone should have the tool sets needed to make images of those memories set before the camera they have at hand. The magical nature of photography is this great mix of science and creativity and in the 16 plus years I have been honing my craft I have met many that have found the art form and flourished creatively. Join me for lectures, discussions, and tutorials covering the basics and advanced techniques. Stop just taking snapshots and start making images!

About Tristine

David is an excellent artist who has years of experience in teaching art. I have been a student for 3 years and I have come so far as an artist. David has taught me how to see the world in a different light. I have and would recommend anybody who has an interest in art to take lessons from David. He is able to take anybody with the passion to become the artist they strive to be. He is an amazing teacher!

My Son started with Sergio almost a year now. The music teacher in his school moved him to play with the fifth grade class, however he is a fourth grader. I received a great report about his music performance from school. Sergio is a wonderful music teacher, who is able to make the lesson full of energy and joy. I strongly recommend him for any student who wants to achieve great progress in Sax in no time.

"We feel that we totally lucked out with finding Jason who is a complete gem! He showed up on time and quickly inspired my son with the drawing lessons by having him draw Superheroes! So my son is having a great time with Jason who has a great way of giving feedback and steering Cody using a balance of instructions and positive feedback. Cody is definitely enjoying his lessons and I am seeing real progress. I feel like I did the right thing investing in these lessons and giving Cody a great summer with a wonderful instructor. I couldn't have asked for more. Thank you Jason for being so great at what you do!"

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!"
