Japanese calligraphy is a form of calligraphy, or artistic writing, of the Japanese language.

In modern calligraphy, a number of tools are used to make a composition. Most basic four tools were collectively called Four Treasures of the Study.
You need to purchase at the Japanese store or internet store.

1. A brush
2. An ink stick (sumi).
3. Mulberry paper (washi)
4. An inkstone (suzuri) to grind the inkstick against, mixed with water.

5. A paperweight (bunchin) to hold the paper in place
6. A cloth (shi ta ji ki) to place under the paper (often newsprint is used as well) to prevent ink from bleeding through.

Toshi Sensei was great at sharing a mix of Japanese cultural knowledge and language skills. Our first session was jam packed with valuable learning. Looking forward to future sessions.

Very personable and knowledgeable. Easy to learn from.
Armen
I'm totally new to Japanese and I was very nervous. I just completed my 4th lesson and I'm finding learning Japanese is fun! Toshi is very patient and he is helping me create a plan forward. I have been working hard and have kind of gotten Hiragana,Katakana, but I need a lot more practice. I am able to read and write some words and in our lesson today I spoke my first complete Japanese sentence. Thank you Toshi for your help and for making my Japanese journey fun!

All artists need to learn the basic fundamentals of drawing. I'll show you how to sketch ideas using reference imagery in pencil, focus on composition, form, light, shading, and more. As you progress we can introduce more mediums such as ink pens, alcohol markers, India ink, or colored pencils. I'm also happy to teach digital drawing, using various techniques to sketch and develop crisp linearts.

My drawing specialties are people, animals, and nature landscape scenery, so if any of these things interest you, let's get drawing!

About Emily

Greetings! Do you love to draw or paint either digitally or with traditional mediums? Do you or your kids love cartoons, anime/manga, or comics? How about figure drawing, or lovely nature landscapes? Drawing animals perhaps? How about portraits? Well, if you answered 'yes!' to any of these, then I'

Emily works with my son developing his drawing skills before he leaves for college to study digital animation. He really needed to work on illustration skills and Emily has been amazing! I can’t believe how quickly his skills are improving!! But more importantly to me is that my son enjoys the lessons. He is very comfortable working with Emily and his confidence has grown in the process! I can not speak highly enough about Emily as a teacher!! She has a very calm and supportive approach which is perfect for my son. My son does not drive so it is really convenient that she is willing to travel to my house for lessons!
Kaleb
I found the class very helpful and enjoyable. I've made a lot of progress and it really helps that it's one on one.
Molly
My daughter first met Emily through a summer camp that she participated in. She came home excited and told me that we HAD TO take lessons from her! She has been taking drawing lessons from Emily for the past year and has grown so much in skill! Emily is a patient, kind and caring teacher. She really has a wonderful way of connecting with her students and is supportive of their art style. I would highly recommend Emily!

I want to help you to become a better artist and have fun while you’re doing it! My style of teaching is to tell you about powerful ways to approach your drawings that will boost your technical ability as fast as possible. In other words, I’m going to help you to make your art look like the thing you’re drawing. But I won’t rush you through it! We’ll take as long as you need to get a good understanding of the most important aspects of the lesson. We can focus on what you are most interested in learning about. Want to learn how to draw faces better? Or maybe improve your proportions for drawing a full body person? Pets, landscapes, still life, it’s your choice because I work for you. Each of these are unique subjects, but there are certain fundamentals that apply to all of them which I will help you with to give your drawings more of a “pop out” look! Some of those things are learning to see values (light and dark), negative space, and how angles and relationships of different elements

About Anthony

I want to help you make huge leaps in your skills to become a better artist than you even thought was possible! Whatever you want to create, you can do it! Private lessons can save a lot of time and keep you on the right path for your personal individual needs, where ever you are on your way to be

Anthony is a patient, thoughtful instructor! I took private lessons with him quite some time ago, but still vividly remember the tips he gave me. He'd be a great fit for students of all ages and levels.
Maureen
Anthony is a competent artist and serious at his craft. His teaching skills reflect his knowledge and his passion for art.
Rain
Anthony G. is honestly the most AMAZING art teacher I have ever had! I didn't know what to expect from the private art lesson and was pleasantly surprised when Anthony was able to speak to what I am truly passionate about, which is nature. His positive energy, joy, and excitement for teaching is genuine and he goes out of his way to understand your artistic vision and goals, which really made me feel important and valued. Anthony G. is able to balance professionalism, humor, and quality standards for his students that creates a relaxed atmosphere and enhanced learning environment. He cares about each one of his students and is incredibly patient with them. He makes sure that you learn so much in a short amount of time, and ultimately succeed in achieving your artistic goals. After taking his class, I was able to more clearly define my voice, making me feel more confident about my ability to communicate through artistic expression. He is also a PHENOMENAL live event painter at weddings!

I'm so jazzed to take my next art class with Anthony Galati! I strongly encourage anyone to do the same!

My father used to have a small photo lab at the loft and it was like a magic to me. I was always passionate to learn the beauty of photography however I never got the chance to.
I took few classes with Irina, she helped me to create incredible photos for my marketing campaign.
Irina is very professional and patient teacher, she has deep knowledge of photography and she makes it fun to learn.
I would recommend Irina to anyone who wants to learn photography."

"Great teacher and a wonderful experience. My daughter loves to go to class and have lots of fun while learning new techniques.
Kids are actually exposed to various mediums. The really good part is you can also see older kids working on really good pieces of art, which is a very motivating for the younger ones. Personally Ms Maggie is very kind and gentle and a pleasure to know. I recommend any parent looking to enroll their kids into an art program to take them to her class and you WON'T regret it!"

"I thoroughly enjoyed my lessons with Jacob. My husband gave them to me as a birthday present and it was tons of fun. Jacob was able to answer all of my nitty gritty questions, as well as general tips on improving my skills. The lessons were enjoyable and I learned tons. I've gone from shooting in complete auto mode, because I didn't know how to do anything different, to shooting in aperture priority mode with much better results. My Christmas portrait of my kids will be much better this year thanks to these lessons. If you're looking for an affordable way to improve this is a great option because you'll learn a lot in just a few one-on-one sessions. Jacob was also very flexible in working with me on the schedule for the lessons. Thanks Jacob!"
