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!

My expertise is helping students develop a deeper relationship with painting and drawing while encouraging a dialog with the history of art and contemporary art practices.

Over the past ten years, I have taught a variety of painting and drawing courses. Having taught Painting and Color at University of Illinois at Chicago for a year during my graduate studies, I honed my skills as an educator. Teaching at Massachusetts College of Art Summer Programs between my BFA and MFA gave me the experience and skills to develop my teaching skills. My class is challenging and engaging for all students.

About Monica

I'm an artist specializing in drawing and painting classes for young adults and adults. You'll receive personalized instruction from a classically trained artist. My mission is to give Students the skills to draw and paint realistically, and express themselves.

I've been drawing my whole time practically, and it's something that I always want to be doing more. Whether it's looking outside at the still landscape, or recreating a moving scene, drawing has always been a passion of mine.

I can help you with putting what you see in your mind onto paper more genuinely. We'll work on perspective, scale, color gradients, shading, detailing, and much more.

I would highly recommend Jonathan as a music teacher. Jonathan is absolutely passionate about music, which is evident by his enthusiastic and energetic teaching techniques. He is very patient with my five year old and encourages her to get her very best effort. Jonathan customizes the music and lessons for my daughter’s skill level while at the same time provides challenges to keep the learning process interesting. In a short period of time, my daughter's keyboard playing abilities have dramatically increased. I am very grateful to Jonathan for making learning fun for my daughter, who always looks forward to her lessons!

I love teaching art! I taught in the South Carolina school system for 5 years before having children but continued to teach privately at home. Now I teach evening classes twice a week to adults and we focus mainly on painting with acrylics. I have approximately 25 students and I'm amazed at how they are improving week to week..... and how much fun we have! I am great at teaching step-by-step lessons and encouraging students to add their own creative & unique touches. Also, I own a wholesale company called My Island.... I sell my art to retailers in the US and Caribbean; my designs are reproduced on tote bags, placemats, pillows, canvases, and lots more. I am also a successful Etsy Shop Owner.... GiftandhomebyGerri. I welcome music (mine or yours) while we paint......painting is my favorite thing in the world and I'd love to teach you!

About Gerri

"Jessica is simply outstanding!!! She got right to the heart of what my children needed to work on to improve their drawing, and she was able to work with a range of abilities, attention spans, etc. Within minutes she was able to draw out the tentative artist in each of her three young students (ages 9-11), and you could see the difference in confidence in just one lesson!! She is smart, fun, flexible--you really could not find a better instructor!!!"
