I took painting lessons about 10 years ago and haven’t done anything since. I brought a 1/2 finished painting. Maggie was great helping me set up and seeing where I was and what I remembered. Then showed me some techniques to help get me going. I’m looking forward to our next lesson.

Maggie is a talented instructor. Helped me tremendously with oil paint color mixing and matching.
Melissa R
Maggie is an exceptional teacher who has her classroom management skills down to a tee. It’s amazing to watch her command a classroom full of children while remaining sweet and never losing her cool. She was a great mentor and I learned a lot about art education from her!

I am an accomplished painter, illustrator, and graphic designer, specializing in figurative art. I have been teaching art classes since 1984 , at elementary, college and adult levels, beginner, intermediate and advanced. I am also an instructor at Art e Vino studio, a paint 'n sip, which is where I engage customers in the fun of art-making!
I feel that my combined artistic skills and ability to have fun will make for a unique learning experience, with solid results as a goal.

I have a wide range of artistic interests and skills in both traditional and non-traditional media.
I keep my skills sharp by working indoors from life, outdoors from nature, copying old master and Impressionist paintings at the Brooklyn Museum of Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. I am featured in a recent book, Museum: Behind the Scenes at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, by Danny Danziger.

One of the biggest struggles I notice with photographers across all levels of experience, is that they are not maximizing the capabilities of their cameras in different shooting conditions. If you don't consistently apply some of the simple rules of photography to your camera; then what your camera delivers or under delivers can be quite frustrating. Sure you can watch endless videos, read books, and ask friends for help. However, what I have learned in teaching numerous students is nothing is better than camera in hand, shooting with a coach, supporting your efforts.

Though we travel around the world teaching photographers wildlife and nature photography, we are based out of Kennesaw, GA. Meaning when we have down time, I can work with local students interested in learning photography in locations in which we are very familiar. Or, we have the ability to set up one on one online courses, tailored specifically for you. We teach all levels of photography and are knowledgeable ...

Very patient. We went through some technical issues that were a struggle for me and Jacob was very helpful and persistent in getting to solutions.
Tehila
I had a great experience with Jacob as an instructor. He is knowledgeable and his advice was relevant and to the point. He invested time to critique my work and even sent detailed notes. Highly recommend!
Jenn
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!

Roya is an excellent teacher. She has been my art tutor since the time I was a teenager (and now I am in my 30s). She is patient, kind, and creative in her pedagogy methods: she finds multiple ways to explain the same concepts and techniques so it will stay with you. She is also an extremely knowledgeable art historian, having her as a teacher is like having a live encyclopedia. I am so happy to have found her as my art tutor and my friend.
Lily
Very good lesson.
Mike
I didn’t expect to learn that much from an online lesson. She is amazing and puts immense amount in preparation for sessions by providing videos , demos to give me ideas and incentives for learning . I never thought some one can portray concepts so well on line .
