In our photography classes, I teach students just taking a brand new dslr camera out of the box how to use the camera in manual mode like a professional. We discuss technical aspects including the exposure triangle, composition, lighting and more.

Each lesson is catered to the students growth from previous lessons. I start off with showing students personal work and showing them the methods I used and the techniques used with those methods. I believe in painting right alongside my students, so be prepared to get dirty!

Good teaching is a mixture of art and science—the ability to grab and keep students' attention and convey complex information, Mr. K does just that!! I have taken about 4 or 5 classes with him and I must say he has taught me everything I need now in my career. Patient and vastly knowledge. Definitely would take another class with him!

Mr. K taught was amazing. He taught the GED in Michigan a few years ago. The moment I walked into his classroom, it was just one and one. He didn't treat me like all the other teachers. He actually cared and it showed. But man, is he hard! I didn't think I would get homework after the first class, but I was seriously wrong. But over the next two months, he grilled me and grilled me until I wanted to scream. But when I took the GED and was scored, I aced it! Just to warn yall though, he's not an easy teacher. And he doesn't put up with excuses. But when he gives you his attention, its all of it.

He even went waaaay beyond the call of duty and helped me get into college at Lansing Community College. He walked me through the application, even drove and met me at LCC, and sat with me when we talked to the reps. He even helped me look for scholarships and gave me advise on financial aid! This guy is a saint!

Andrea - Mother of an elementary student
Mrs. Jacqueline is a wonderful teacher. She is enthusiastic, caring and accessible. She used different reading strategies to help my son to learn the sounds of the letters and decode words, as well as to learn sight words.

Mrs. Jacqueline has high expectations for my son and he made a lot of progress in his pre-reading skills. She motivated my son to learn and as a result he was engage and eager to learn how to read.

Mrs. Jacqueline develop a good relation with my son and with me. She was always willing to send me updates on how my son was doing and giving me tips on how to help him at home. I am very happy with Mrs. Jacqueline teaching skills, I am looking forward for her to continue teaching my son in the near future.

Very helpful tutoring our son for spelling and reading during his kindergarten and 1st grade years. Recommended.

Ms. Jacqueline has been of invaluable help in assisting me in my preparation and analyses of reading selections for students in grades 6-12. She is very well read, and possesses insight into theme, plot, and character development in works meaningful to teens and teens. Her guidance helped me prepare materials I was proud to present to my superior.

I teach the fundamental basis for all representational drawing. From still life to portraits and the figure leading up to advanced genre or multi-figure pictures. I have been drawing and painting my whole life and love to teach drawing and painting to anyone who wants to learn. Visual communication skills are a foundation for many forms of problem solving skills. These skills all lead to a keen sense of awareness of ones self and environment.

About Preston

Preston is a very nice coach. I was a beginner with zero experience before. After five lessons, I gained solid basic skills and feel more comfortable to rally. I feel growing by leaps and bounces.

He is very sharp about identifying the problem and then training accordingly. He is also kind and very patient to guide

I have years of experience working with children aged 4-19, and adults who are anywhere between starting a hobby to perfecting painting techniques. Of course, beginners start with basic techniques, but I like to work toward a completed painting within 1-2 hours, when using acrylics, 1 hour or less with watercolors, or approximately 10 hours with oils, due to the drying time required. Everyone likes to end a lesson with something solid to show their progress.
I paint with acrylics, watercolors, oils, and epoxy resin. I don’t have a preference, as each medium is fantastic in its own way.

About Alicia

So you’re considering painting lessons... Excellent idea! Art lessons encourage you to use your imagination, and they help develop hand eye coordination. They’re a fun activity for children’s parties, a great way to get homeschooled children together for socializing, a fantastic introduction to a l

Francesca is such a delight to work with and learn from! I was brand new to painting and wanted to pick up some basic skills. She was patient and really helped me feel comfortable as I learned the basics. I also loved at her home studio, full of objects from her travels. Highly recommend.

"As our first lesson Moataz began by explaining the historic origin of calligraphy which was interesting and helpful. He then moved to fonts and their importance and various styles as they evolved with the specifics of basic rules of calligraphy.
He is open to my needs as a student and knowlegable and responsive to questions."

"I can't recommend lessons with Tori highly enough!

I've been obsessed with oil painting, and every kind of 2D visual art, for as long as I can remember, but I never really believed in myself to do it until I worked with Tori.

My drawing, painting, and even my 3D work progressed more, and more quickly, working with Tori than they had in years

Thank you Tori!!!!"
