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

Age-Appropriate areas of instruction include:
-Painting Techniques such as Layering, Mixing, Washes, and Glazing.
-Understanding Composition.
-Understanding Color Theory: Opposites or “complementary colors” on the color wheel; Painting with medium tones, so that highlights and shadows can be applied easily. Using multiple colors equals “depth” and “interest.”
-How to Mix Paint: Mixing using the palette knife, brush, on palette, or on painting.

Great teacher! She was very patient with me and with every lesson, I saw myself improving. I only participated in group classes before and having a teacher tailor each lesson to my level made such a huge difference. She really knows how to break down complicated things to make them easier to draw.

I will listen to what your needs are and cater to that. My experience in digital photography goes back to 2001. I know how complex the world of photography can be but I will seek to leave my ego behind because I too had to learn from others and frequently in a classroom setting the instructor unfortunately can't help the individual.

About Trudy

I have been taking digital photos since 2001 but started when I first fell in love with Photoshop. My favorite subject matter is nature but the principles of taking a decent photo will be similar for any subject matter. I photograph large events and headshots and believe in the importance of a

Please see my online portfolio and student artwork at www.shinestudioshouston.com.

I can take you from a beginner drawer into an award-winning artist! I will help you pursue your passion along with developing the necessary skills of drawing. If you have never drawn before I can have you drawing circles with precision. If you are intermediate in drawing I can have you drawing with realism to enter art contests.

About Ricardo

I specialize in realism or realistic pencil drawing. I also draw with pen, which does not allow for mistakes to occur. I start with a blank sheet of paper that eventually develops into a finished piece of art that usually takes about 8 hours of straight drawing. I have won many art awards. I began
