I am currently working in the industry as a freelance photographer as well as a retail staff photographer. I have been photographing for 6+ years now. My focus is people! Portraiture I focus on includes weddings, headshots, lifestyle, fashion, and photojournalism/documentary. My main love is storytelling. I believe if you have a medium such as photography, storytelling is not only fitting - but also necessary. I will teach you how to create a story with lighting, techniques, angles, posing, and context. We will be able to focus on our sitter and bring out the most authentic imagery that fits them and you as an artist.

Tarin is an amazing teacher. Having never done anything related to photography she taught me how to use a camera and adjust the settings correctly very quickly. She is very professional and knowledgeable.

I have been teaching water painting for almost 10 years..
This is a very exciting class! Students will learn How to Paint Watercolors, How to hold a watercolor brush and Basic Brush Control Exercises etc...
I will get you started and perhaps inspire you, as a watercolor painter. I can supply lessons on the craft and skills, but purpose is what is driving you to want to try to create art. What that vision is, is unique for everyone. The footsteps of the path that lies before you are yours to follow until you can find your own path.
So what are you waiting for ? Sign up your lesson today!

It's such a joy to take classes with Margarita. As a children's librarian by profession I'm impressed with how well she teaches and inspires children, always a lot of smiles in her classes. As an adult returning to art I'm learning so much about the core fundamentals that are taking my art to the next level. Margarita is an expert teacher, kind, considerate, and dedicated to helping her students achieve and develop their potential and talent. I highly recommend her, and her classes.
Jovanka V.
My son is a beginner in drawing and is a bit apprehensive about his drawing skills. I really appreciated and liked Margarita's approach, setting music to create a relaxing atmosphere for drawing, explaining the steps, and the foundation for sketching. I think we approached drawing wrongly and after the lesson I changed our way. We play music now (which he likes) and he is drawing more often and is more relaxed.
Nandini
My daughter attends Ms Maggie's art exploration program. Ms Maggie is very patient with children and brings out the best in her students. My daughter has learnt a lot of techniques in art under her guidance and looks forward to art class every week. I'm so happy and grateful that my daughter has a wonderful art teacher. Search no further if you're on the lookout for an art teacher for your child.

Very impressed with his organization. He went at just the right speed for me and we actually made good progress. I'm looking forward to the next lesson!"

"I am an adult student (33) taking beginner drawing lessons with Jessica. My interest/goal is to draw realistic portraits (maybe in a few years), but with no background, I'd better start from the basics, and I am so glad to have Jessica as my teacher. Her philosophy about how to approach art alone is already teaching me so much - for example, what's the correct mindset, how to really observe a subject, how to practice drawing even when I am not drawing.

We have been working on building up foundational skills and their sequence, which gives me clear understanding on what each small step means in the long term. Based on my interest and what I knew and didn’t know, Jessica would design each lesson with a specific focus in mind, usually around practicing a certain technique. Her homework (I ask for homework since I draw slowly) also reinforces those learnings. I feel more confident with each lesson, and my progress is noticeable.

Also, she is incredibly encouraging, patient, and generous. I never feel judged or self-conscious practicing techniques in front of her (often clumsily) or showing her my new drawings. She always gives thorough feedback and encouraging words. Overall, she gives me confidence on my journey, and that is much needed for an adult student who didn’t have the chance to start when younger. Best teacher ever!"

"I'm a believer in classical education so Kai was a perfect match as a teacher. Watching his demonstrations I visually register the method, and then the feedback I get on my drawings points me where I am lacking. I had all these ideas I wanted to draw/paint, but I couldn't form the correct shapes. I still have a long way to go to make those pieces but as van Gogh said "So that what used to seem to me to be desperately impossible is now gradually becoming possible". I guarantee you, learning realistic drawing will fuel your creativity even more.
Kai is an interactive teacher, so you will also hear many great stories and the names of many great artists that you can explore."
