We found Christelle on this website and could not be more thrilled. She was able to meet all of our requirements in an art tutor, speaking perfect Spanish to my daughter and always energetic during the lessons. My daughter cannot wait for the next lesson to come every week!

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.

I am a professional photographer based in Miami, FL. I have been teaching all aspects of photography, from basic skills & techniques to advanced lighting, post-processing (Lightroom & Photoshop), as well as the logistics of the business side of photography for the past 7 years.

My wife & I run a studio north of downtown, where we offer all inclusive photography services from project inception to final product.

We work all types of projects but specialize in commercial fashion, model portfolios, professional & actor headshots, advertising campaigns, product photography, and events.

Here is a link to my website for examples of my work:

I am comfortable teaching all levels of students, from day 1 beginners to professionals who desire to improve their craft.

I look forward to helping you realize your goals in the realm of visual media.

How do you transfer a 3D subject onto a 2D surface? How do you draw what you SEE and not what you THINK? Drawing is the ability to see and transfer accurately what you see onto your 2D area. There are many techniques and tricks from the drawing masters I have shown my students that are effective in improving their drawing skills. We will also delve into highlights and shading, and use various pencils and other mediums to enhance the drawing experience as well. Come and see that your drawing can improve tremendously with practice and the right techniques!
