For as long as I can remember I've been drawing in my free time. After going to Art school and learning how to draw on a professional level, I took note of how I was taught how to draw and am very confident on teaching you how to use a wide variety of tools to draw a wide variety of things.

About Moataz
I am a Freelance Graphic Designer living in Stamford, Connecticut. I love learning and teaching, like a lot. I teach languages, Lettering, branding, and the basics of Graphic design as well as the adobe programs that bring it to life.

My promise to you is that I will teach you everything I know in the time I'm given and provide you with all sorts of outside resources to get you on your way to fluency and proficiency.

I'll make sure to do my absolute best to get you speaking a new language from day one, learning a Design program immediately, or teaching you how to letter with the rules they don't teach you in school. And best of all, I'll even show you how to actually make money with all of these.

I have a very unique journey into learning where I experienced many places and got a fresh and different understanding to the many su
bjects that I teach. For example my knowledge of multiple languages and travel to different countries gave me an added knowledge of linguistics that I experienced first hand and confirmed in books, so now I know how languages work, and can relate a concept from one language to another even if the languages seem completely different.

My Design work has been very general so I've done a lot of different things before I specialized in hand lettering, so I've done it all from advertisements on billboards to website design and development, to copywriting, to branding from start to finish for companies big and small.

My love for lettering and Calligraphy emerged when I started getting more Logos for client work and my exploration of type wasn't the best answer most of the time so I would letter everything myself, and the rest is history.

I am really passionate about learning and even more passionate about sharing what I've learned. I am efficient, I know what works for different people since I taught in classrooms and tutored way before I knew about Takelessons, and I'm most proud of being praised as a very genuine person. A very common compliment I get is that I sincerely want my students to do well. And it makes me really happy every time someone says it, and I hope that one day you see that and tell me the same thing.

Feel free to find out more about me and ask me anything you want, and I really look forward to one day teach you something that will get you to achieve your goals! :)

Just so there are no surprises, I raise my prices very slightly every 3 months, next time it will go up is on March 3rd 2017. The reason for this is because I get better and more efficient at teaching as time goes by, so that hour that you get now is much more packed with value than the same hour last year or last month.

I came to Kaycee as a total beginner to drawing, and she has walked me through the process step-by-step which is exactly what I need! Great at explaining techniques and why we are doing things to our drawings. I am excited to be gaining knowledge from the ground up and watching it come to fruition.

I like to take pride in making my students feel secure and knowing and seeing the improvement they make within each session. I will be handing out a materials list prior to our lessons. Most students see a huge leap in drawing within the the first lesson! Class starts out usually with me giving a 1 hour demonstration on what I expect them to do as I cover and explain my entire process and thought and calculations that goes into drawing and painting. For the rest of the class I will be besides the student as they work giving them one on one pointers and as much help and explanation as they need in order to improve. Students start out with learning how to look and draw what they observe accurately by first working on simple geometric shapes such as spheres, cubes. We then will move on to Cast studies and after a few months of studying we will start on figures and portraits.

About Kai Lun
Hi, there! My name is Kai, and I can't wait to meet you!
Spreading the joy of drawing and painting has always been a great pleasure of mines.

Being trained in China's most prestigious and renowned fine arts academy, CAFA (China Central Academy of Fine ArtsI) as well as studying in Tianjin Academy of Fine Arts, Shanghai Art and Design Academy, and Ruth Asawa School of the Arts, I offer art classes in traditional realistic painting and drawing techniques, both Online and in my studio I set up within my studio.

Students of all levels are welcome. From beginners who love art and drawing but who have not had formal training, to experienced artists who want to gain a more solid grasp of fundamental principles, historical training methods lead to significant skill development within a few months of teaching.

Kai has been a terrific teacher for me. I went with one idea of what I wanted and Kai has made me re-evaluate and has taken me to a place where my skill set will be so very much stronger. And he's done the in a caring and patient way that makes the whole process easy and enjoyable. I have learned more than I thought I would in a very short period of tie. Kai is a terrific teacher.

I've been teaching painting and drawing for 15 years. I work with my students to customize lessons to their individual needs. Working with specific goals, I can help students achieve whatever level of drawing they wish to achieve. I have taught lessons with students of all ages and all levels. I teach the importance of understanding composition, light and shadow. Together, we can work on realism, abstraction, figurative, landscape or anything you desire!

About Adam
I am contemporary realist painter and I have just recently moved to Jacksonville, Florida. I received an MFA from the New York Academy of Art in Manhattan. For four years I worked as a painter and sculptor for world-renowned artist Jeff Koons. I have taught painting as an Adjunct Painting Professor at Brooklyn College, City University of New York and South Piedmont Community College. I have also worked as a Post Graduate Teaching Assistant at the New York Academy of Art.

I aim to achieve two goals in my teaching. First, I want to help students understand how to "see" rather than look. Being able to break down shapes, light and shadow in the visual field is really important. Furthermore, I aim to help students understand how to work with their desired medium. Whether a student wishes to use oil paints, acrylic paints, charcoal or any nu
mber of mediums, it is important to understand the best way to utilize each medium. With these two goals in mind, I customize and individualize lessons for students of all ages and levels.

Learning to draw is the best foundation for any artist. I teach my students through various techniques and assignments to understand form and spatial relationships. This tool is what many artists refer to as the ability to "see." This will not only improve your accuracy but your overall skills as an artist in other medias also.

About Sondra
Hello future student :) My name is Sondra and I would love to help you achieve your painting goals. I have a wide range of skills, from abstraction to realism and many hues in between. I received my Bachelor's in Fine Arts from The Oregon College of Art and Craft, a school that gave me background in modern, conceptual art. I also learned and revered techniques from the old Masters, such as Rembrandt, who have a classic, timeless perspective on painting. I've heard it said that it takes 10,000 hours to become a pro, which is why I give my students a painting assignment from our very first lesson. I will get you started wherever you are in your level of experience. I'll help you learn to paint what you're looking at as well as develop your own sense of style when painting expressively. I have a great eye for color and mixing and my students
have felt this was a particular advantage of learning from me. I'd love to meet you and help you on your painting journey. So sign up with me today!

Art from the Heart! It is my opinion that, as an artist, Art is supposed to be affordable so that all may own a special piece. I will teach you to draw focusing on details, details, details.

About James
I am best known for putting a lot of life and exactness into the eyes on my canvas; humans and pets. I have been painting for over 40 years. During this time I have continued my education by taking classes from other Artists and schools. I have used pastels, oil paints, charcoal, pencil, clay, mixed media, watercolor and acrylic. I prefer Acrylic for its control, exact pigment and drying time. Which affects over all project time. My specialties are faces, animals and abstract. All of which have been commissioned for me to paint or was a result of my donation of a custom painting to local charities.

James really took the time to explain the acrylic colors and shading. Especially great that I now know the difference between translucent, opaque and transparent. I have painted for years but his classes helped me rediscover a live for painting people. The eyes were the hardest until I realized I must capture the tiniest detail. I recommend him for any class. Very patient and very generous soul! Thank you!!!!!

The focus of my lessons would be to connection with the subject, be it either figure or still-life. Every "thing" has energy unique to it's own. The key to drawing is not the act of drawing; it is the act of SEEING, and as soon as one is open to seeing things beyond its basic form- then and only then, will one be able to apply what is being seen. My job will be to help you see the perspectives that are missed when just looking so you can start SEEING.

About Erica
Hi All!

My name is Erica Jensen. I've studied the Visual Arts from third grade to college- about 14 years of experience-. I have been asked quite frequently to teach and share my knowledge with the masses; through either youtube or for personal classes, and I only recently have taken that advice and decided to share what I know. Only up until recently, did I think that what I had to offer wasn't anything anyone else couldn't get from somone else; UNTIL- I decided to help out a very close friend of mine with a college project and what she told me really struck home. She said, " You made me feel like I can do anything, no matter the end product. Even though you encouraged me to keep practicing to ensure my result would progress; what I took away from you helping me, moreso than anything, was the ability to make me feel like nothing matt
ers besides how I FEEL. Which created a farr better product than I ever thought it would be.."

That just reassured me that my philosphy on Drawing and Painting may be similar to others but still is MY OWN. And I should've thought of it that way from the beginning because, I believe whole heartedly that everyone's expression is unique no matter what! What's yours is yours, and what's mine is mine. And I would encourage you to OWN IT at every moment because that's the truth behind ALL ARTIST- We decided to OWN IT and let our expressions blossom to unimaginable heights.

Gwynn Oak, MD

I am a graduate of the Baltimore School for the Arts (BSA) majoring in visual artists and continued my studies at the Maryland Institute College of Art. In my spare time, I've taught for the last 15 years. I've tutored actual BSA students. I love drawing. I love teaching art. It is an expression of an individual's personal journey.

The most fabulous thing about being an artist is that boundaries regarding creativity are non-existent. The artist is always in a state of learning. Art is a progressive practice that takes time to develop.

Materials are not included.

Drawing lessons will be assessed based on the individual's current abilities and their goals.

About Sharron
My resume includes graduating from the Baltimore School for the Arts and continued studies at the Maryland Institute College of Art until I decided I didn’t want to be a “Starving Artist”. So, I graduated from the University of Baltimore with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Business Administration with a minor in Human Resources Management. My education also includes 27 graduate credits that were leading to a Master’s in Public Administration when I decided to discontinue that path. After twenty-five years in the public sector, I decided to revisit my passion for art in my spare time. As a youngster, I remember wanting to teach art in schools, but I did not want the restrictions that are present in the classrooms and more so today. All forms of art is a freeing practice that is practiced and developed over time.

Why not have your yo
ungsters sit for an actual tutoring session and learn something while being entertained? I like to incorporate age-appropriate art (drawing) or activities in any of my academic sessions to keep my students engaged and entertained.

Sharron was an awesome instructor!!! She was very professional. She showed up early to set up for my daughter's paint and sip party. Sharron gave very detailed descriptions to help guide the amateur artists. Everyone enjoyed the personal feedback that was given. Sharron made our party a huge success.
