I most often paint with oils or digitally, but I am also experienced with acrylic, watercolors, and gouache. For my digital paintings, I primarily use Procreate on the iPad, but I've been painting in Photoshop since I was 13. Let me know what medium you're most interested in, or whether or not you'd like to explore more than one! Even if your focus is digital, I highly recommend doing some traditional painting as well; it will greatly strengthen your digital painting skills (speaking from first-hand experience).

In our lessons, we will build upon drawing foundations and strengthen your understanding of color and light by painting from observation (both from life/in person and photo/video reference). We'll learn how to mix colors and layer paint to create depth and dimension. The subjects you paint will depend on your own personal interests, whether it's landscapes, portraits, or something else; I will always give assignments with your artistic goals in mind. If you have little to no ...

My daughter loved her lessons with Jessi! Highly recommend.
Brie
Jessi has been a tremendous help for my Design II class. They taught me all the proper techniques and was very patient with me and my extremely minimal amount of skill. Thanks to them I managed to get a much better grade than I usually would in these types of media classes (i'm so so so bad at technology) and I feel more autonomous when it comes to designing my own posters for shows.
Destiny
Jessi was always kind, honest and extremely helpful with her critiques of my work. Her guidance helped me understand key concepts in what makes good art and I improved so much because of it! I highly recommend her as a tutor!

About Maggie

I have been teaching violin for about 4 years and playing for over 25. Due to COVID, I switched to Zoom lessons, and it has been surprisingly awesome! Anything I teach in person translates to Zoom, and this makes learning the violin more accessible than ever. I teach using the Suzuki Method and S

Maggie gave me violin lessons way back when I was in high school, and when I decided to pick up my violin again as an adult, Maggie was the first person I thought of to call. I don't know where I would be as a student without Maggie's patient, consistent, and thoughtful teaching style. I have ADHD and carry a lot of insecurities from childhood about my ability to stick with an instrument, and Maggie meets me where I am every single time. Maggie listens to my goals with the instrument and tailors lesson plans and teaching styles to my specific needs.

10/10 would lesson again -- especially for students that are daunted by the process of learning an instrument or who will benefit from a compassionate, trauma-informed educator who has experience working with neurodivergent students.

Maggie is an excellent teacher! Super patient and great at breaking things down into parts that are easy to pick up and remember. I'm often a very frustrated learner, but Maggie has been amazing about encouraging at the exact moment it's needed (often before I even fully realise I need it!). Starting to learn violin as an adult was daunting, but something I had wanted to do since I was young, but it hasn't been the impossible task I thought it would be -- and that's definitely due to having engaging instruction that makes learning both challenging and fun!

I have been with maggie for 1 year now and she has showed me so much She explains everything so so good she does lovely complements she has patience I love learning with maggie she is the best violin teacher I have ever gotten she is really kind I have learned so so so much I would never ever change my teacher I love her 😊 I love learning with her she’s the best teacher! I know you will love her too!

"Roya is Amazing!!!! The first time I went to Roya, she asked me what exactly I wanted to learn, and really tailored my lessons to encompass all my interests and things that were important to me. She is patient, sweet, and THE BEST teacher I have ever had (that's a lot coming from an art major).

I have changed many private teachers in the last few years, and ever since I found Roya, I couldn't imagine having anyone else teach me. She is truly a golden treasure.

I have seen her teach to people of all levels, and she has been incredible with every single one of them. No matter your level, she will teach you what you want to learn."
