I had a great time with Katherine learning different drawing techniques. She was very knowledgeable and was able to adapt each lesson to what I needed to know that week. I really enjoyed our lessons last semester. :)

The lesson was very enjoyable and effective. Amber made me feel relaxed, yet totally engaged. I gained confidence after completing a landscape sketch during my first class.

James Walsh has helped me in more ways than can I could even imagine in the past 6 months I have trained with him. His challenges and ideas lit a creative spark in my mind, helping me express myself through playing the role of a character nicely (absolutely loving the accent practice i am being taught in). He has also provided a very therapeutic healing for my mental health, helping me to be more spontaneous and witty, instead of the wooden and mechanical person I once was.

James has a ridiculous amount of connections, resources and ideas at his hands, and gladly offers him to me to help me in my Method Acting. For those looking for a career in Acting, Comedy, or Film, James is definitely your man for opening several doors.

Throughout the months, he has been very supportive and encouraging, oftentimes doing welfare checkups on me throughout the week and showing me new ideas and techniques in film, acting and spontaneity. He demonstrates patience with learning curves, and gives good assignments to work on through the week for the next time you meet up. He also is understanding if you cannot make an appointment.

In terms of the actual classes, they are phenomenal. Many classes, when deliberately practicing, feel more like an actual In-the-moment conversation rather than a mechanical " Do this than that" layout. He gives a lot of good and fair feedback for improvement at the end of the class, and following the advice never failed to be right. Be prepared for time to fly, though, as 45 minutes will feel like 10, especially if you are REALLY in character and going back and forth with him on random topics, which almost make you feel like you have a hidden persona lol.

All in all, James is very experienced and skilled in teaching students of all walks of life, from aspiring actors/actresses to would be filmmakers to people simply looking to learn life skills that are invaluable to life, career, relationships and even mental health! There is something for all in this coach's teachings, provided you are wiling to put in the work. Phenomenal teacher and an all around great person!

James is a very caring teacher who took the time to get to know my strengths and weaknesses. He has many years of experience in this field and it shows in his lessons.

Thank you James for the training, I grew as a improv student from the time I worked with you. I utilized this class as a test for my profession (business) and am grateful that I selected you as a mentor/teacher. I am happy with the results and may be knocking on your door again down the road. Stay tuned.

"I've worked closely with Tim at a kids edutainment facility a few years ago. He's both a great leader and educator. He's always coming up with new and creative ideas to engage the kids and played a key role in the facility's success. My daughter would look forward to going in and learning different artistic techniques and other creative ideas from him, and i can proudly say that she auditioned for and was accepted into all of her magnet schools of choice using many of the techniques he taught her. Art has become her favorite subject, and she has a clear view of her career goals in this field, and i know Tim played a valuable role in her artistic development."

I would highly recommend taking any of his courses if you are hoping to increase your knowledge of Photoshop, Illustrator or are looking to have a better understanding at creating your own illustrations."

"My 12 year old daughter has had a love for illustration her whole life and It was hard to find an art teacher that focused on her type of drawing. We finally found Ms. Emily!! She and I love her!! She has not only helped my daughter become a better illustrator, she has helped her overcome some of her anxieties. She is kind and helpful without judging but will push you to create a piece that you will feel proud of. We just think she’s wonderful!!"

"Our son Christopher has been passionate about art and illustration his entire life but with traditional art instruction had become incredibly critical of his inability to duplicate exactly what other instructors required of him. In that regard meeting Tim Long has been one of the biggest blessings for us. Tim has helped to re-build a foundation for a lifelong relationship with art. His teaching methods are creative, engaging and unlike traditional art instructors rather than coax or box-in a child's imagination he provides the freedom to explore artistic expression based on our sons perception of art. Christopher has begun to experience illustration on a completely different level thanks to Tim, learning that trial and error and problem solving are part of the process and over the past few months it has been a joy to see the artist in him blossom again!"

"I've known Emily for years and while I'm not an artist, I have observed her teaching children how to draw, particularly during summer classes at the College of Saint Rose in Albany. She always tries to make each activity fun and engaging and does her best to help everyone understand how to draw, paint, sketch, and even how to design good characters. She genuinely does care about art, and that passion shines into her lessons for sure.

I don't draw, but if I chose to, I'd definitely pick Emily as my teacher over anyone else."

His love of art and sharing art theory knowledge is palpable and he is always available for advice or critique. I would absolutely recommend Tim for Photoshop, Illustrator, or drawing lessons. He's awesome!"
