Had my first lesson last night to learn about night photography. I bought myself a fancy camera (Sony A7R4) and I had no idea how to use it or what any of the buttons did other than turning it on and having it set to auto. I didn’t know the first thing about photography other than point and shoot. Irina immediately had me change my camera to manual and told me to not use auto. I loved that! Irina also told me the lesson was going to be a lot of information for a beginner such as myself wanting to learn about my photography first. Yes, it was a lot to take in but, I can say that I left my lesson with Irina feeling way more confident about how to use my camera properly and I can’t wait to have additional lessons to learn more. Now I know the 3 basic settings of Shutter, Aperture and ISO and how they affect your shots and Irina even put together a booklet for me that explains the basics of photography that includes the need to know information on how to change settings depending on photography location, lighting time of day, desired effects etc. Fantastic job Irina and I can’t wait to learn more with additional lessons.

Great start to first lesson

I lost the "joy" of photography with Irina. Technically, she knows her stuff, but her sensitivity and people skills are lacking. Barely an encouraging word. I felt degraded, nervous, and overall shitty by the end of the second lesson. Hoping for a better experience with another teacher.

Brendan is a lovely instructor. He provides a very casual experience but without skipping on the technical know how.

I was a more advanced student of his, so at times it felt like more a a collaboration, but i was still able to learn from him.
Mike
Such a great teacher! Brendan knows his stuff and his artwork is awesome. I learned so much from being his student.
Ryan
It's quite informative being taught Brendan. He teaches the nuances of painting without getting overly technical. His approach is keep it simple and fun. I highly recommend Brendan as an art instructor.

Abstract art can be one of the most beautiful, and also one of the most intimidating to create. Don't be afraid! Abstract art is one of my personal favorites to create, and I will help show you how easy it can be once you know the basics. We'll go step by step through what makes a great abstract piece, and how you can get there. It takes some practice but before long you'll be making abstract pieces that are a joy to create. Let's get started!

About Nicole

I am a professional mixed media artist. My mediums include drawing (graphite, charcoal, pen, etc) acrylic paint, spray paint, oil paint, and more! I love teaching students who are excited to learn new things. I am a firm believer that anyone can make beautiful and unique art. Especially you!

Nicolle is personable and fun to be around for starters. But even better she is knowledgeable about art and able to teach in a way that my ten year old relates to and understands and learns from. And to top it all off she is very punctual.
