I have a Masters of Art education. I enjoy teaching students of all ages (kids, teens and adults) no matter what level of experience or ability. Not only do I teach drawing, I’m skilled in Painting, Sculpture, and Mixed Media. All art lessons are designed around the students needs. Students learn at their own pace.

About David

I’m an outside the box thinker and utilize all my skills to provide a fun and engaging atmosphere to enlighten, and encourage my students. I tailor my lessons to each individual student, everybody learns differently and I can appreciate and accommodate for that. I love being an artist and teacher

Stephen's a great instructor both from a technical and personable perspective.

He's got a cornucopia of musical knowledge that's evident from how speaks to how he teaches. If you like any film score, chances are he knows how to play it.

Speaking as a beginner, I can say he's been very patient and knows a bunch of exercises and books to learn everything thing from theory to practical pieces to finger exercises.

He provides constructive guidance on what you're doing wrong, and I'm happy to see myself improve under his tutorage. (oh and if you're a sci-fi fan, you'll have a lot in common with him)

I am a student in high school, and he fully understands my need to balance my school work with piano, and he makes sure that I am able to comfortably commit to both aspects of my life. Steve makes sure that I stay on task and that I am progressing with my piano skills all while making the lessons fun and enjoyable.

I am a certified teacher with a master's degree in Radio, TV, Film and one in education as well. I was an adjunct professor of photography at Manhattan's New School for Social Research for 10 years and have spent another 10 years teaching other adults as well as adolescents photography. I have conducted private lessons as well as workshops in my own studio.
My teaching is unique because, unlike many photography clubs where members voice their various opinions on photographs, my technique involves an objective approach where lessons are given each time that can be analyzed to see if requirements of the assignment were met. This way, the student learns not just through critiques, but by comparing his or her results to successful examples. I also do quite a bit of field work and teaching by example. It's the most effective way to learn. I get students putting their digital cameras on "MANUAL" right away and they master the concepts of correct exposure right off the bat.

About William

I have been doing commercial photography for over 40 years. I owned and operated a large studio on West 22nd Street in NYC for 20 of those years and I taught photography from 1988 to the present. I have never stopped. I like one-on-one sessions, but I have also conducted many workshops and classes

We will learn the very basic mechanics of how to paint with watercolors. We will explore different techniques in watercolor painting, including washes, wet in wet work, and glazing. There will be practice exercises each lesson that then will be applied to a painting. Working in this beautiful medium is fun and rewarding. My lessons and classes are designed for the beginner just getting comfortable with watercolor, as well as the intermediate painter.

About Karen

I love showing people how fun creating can be, and helping them tap into their own creativity no matter how deep down it may be buried! My passion is watercolor painting and I really want to share this amazing medium with you. All levels are welcome, especially those who have never tried watercolor

Karen’s beginner watercolor class was a fun and easy atmosphere to learn in . She was very encouraging while demonstrating and talking about the skills we practiced while producing finished pictures. I have a whole new respect for water and paint!
Cynthia
I have been very much enjoying Karen’s watercolor painting. classes. The class is fun and I am learning from it.
At the beginning of each class , she starts with a helpful lesson on watercolor techniques and then she has us proceed to working on our paintings. . She has a pleasant personality and provides the
right amount of instruction and encouragement.
Because of COVID, our classes had to go virtual, but she has managed online teaching very well. She even purchased an additional camera, so that we can clearly see the technique she is demonstrating to us.
Kathy Andrzejewski
This class was a wonderful experience for learning beginning watercolor skills. I enjoyed Karen's pleasant engaging manner of instruction. She was very dynamic online can't imagine what it would have been like in person. I plan to take additional classes with her in the future to increase my skill level.

"I've been fortunate to know some rare and phenomenally reputable Artists in my personal circle and Mr. Ohashi ranks as such. It's even rarer to find someone of this skill to also be a gifted instructor to adults and art teacher to children. For my husband's 50th birthday, I approached Mr. Ohashi after deciding to do a special family art project with our two daughters ages 4 and 6. The entire afternoon was flawless. From set up to clean up, each step of our creative process was relaxed and fun. He is also an experienced and gifted children's art teacher and all they could ask when he left was, "When is he coming back to do more projects with us?" We live in such an age where lasting memories are replaced with hurried instant gratification. We had a special dinner for my husband but those paintings we did with our small girls, will remain on our wall for, what I know will be generations. Not only that, we've been complimented how professional it looks and because we did it in the style of Donald Judd, it really pops out. You've no idea how many people have asked about our family collage work of art when we set up my daughter's virtual school sessions against that wall during the COVID shutdown. To have access to art instruction from someone with this level of caliber is fortuitous to say the least. I can't wait to plan another project."

What is the Best Lighting for Photography?

The best photography lighting is based on several factors, and depends on what type of look you want when it comes to your photos. Natural lighting versus studio lighting brings about two different looks in your photography. We'll be discussing natural lighting, which does not need any equipment. And we'll also discuss the benefits of two styles of studio lighting. The natural lighting of a photo will be much softer and a warmer look while using studio lighting gives your photos a more ov …
