About Priscilla
I thrive in creating a personable learning experience to each of my students no matter the age or background. I believe You got to be versatile with people's learning style and capabilities so that they may enjoy making art. Through my 15 years of studying and teaching Art in both here in the US and in Brazil, my homeland. I've come to realize with the support of my mentors, peers and my family that my niche is to alternatively educate people specifically children in the arts for the enrichment of culture. So get on board with me and let's Create some new Photo Based Art!

*** Lesson Details ***
I have an easy-going, yet structured approach that allows each student to achieve results effectively at his or her own pace. Key concepts, such as point of view, framing, lighting, and composition, are taught using any camera. Technique and
process are often what captivate students most.
*** Studio Equipment ***
Must have an SLR or DSLR camera.

*** Travel Equipment ***
note book, folder, etc

*** Specialties ***
My main goal is to present students with simplified theories of art and mentor them on techniques and processing of photography.

About Dovile
I began teaching while studying in Art Institute. My first students were 5 to 7 yr. old kids. It was very challenging, but also very rewarding. I was teaching them skills, they were teaching me patience. Later the age of my students grew, until I ended up teaching the same students I was in the same classes just 6 months ago. Again another challenge. I love challenges and even more I love helping others to overcome them.
My philosophy about teaching is that everybody can learn, it is only the way how we learn is different for different people. Another very important thing - I strive to be creative, respectful and approachable.

About Marlisa
I am a potter who specializes in functional tableware. I teach in my studio and also at local art centers. I teach throwing on the potter's wheel and hand-building. My work has been exhibited in national juried shows.

I also am a textile artisan. My love is doll-making, in the Waldorf style. I teach knitting (Continental style), crochet, and sewing.

My other love is gardening. I grow tree and herbaceous peonies. My cottage style garden is planted for fragrance and naturalness. I emphasize growing perennials because their beauty increases each year.

I have had nothing but the best experience working with Marlisa. She is patient, she takes the time to verify that you've grasped a concept you're struggling with and works to find the best way to communicate with YOU. I don't think anyone would regret spending an hour or two learning and chatting with Marlisa. I feel so inspired and more confident each time I leave a session. If you're on the fence about trying this; don't hesitate!

Marlisa is a very kind, patient and knowledgeable teacher. I took my granddaughter to her for a pottery lesson and she was very happy with Marlisa's teaching, resulting in her being able to throw a bowl on the wheel that she can actually use. I would highly recommend Marlisa as a teacher for students of all ages!

Marlisa is an awesome teacher. I took a pottery class at Glen Echo years ago and was very disappointed, but with Marlisa's excellent teaching skills and enthusiasm for the art, I left her studio feeling like I wanted to buy a wheel and start throwing. I appreciate her hands-on approach and always felt taken care of attended to. Marlisa is a true artist and excellent teacher!!! I highly recommend her.

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.

About Alyse
I am a studio artist and live painter with an imaginative style trained in the old masters techniques of classical realism. I studied at The Schuler School of Fine Art, a renowned atelier focusing on classical realism techniques. There I took classes part time along side alongside college courses from 2011 until I became a full time artist in 2016. My classes at Schuler included drawing, oil painting, watercolor, sculpture and anatomy. I am experienced with painting still life, figure, portraits, trompe l'oeil, alla prima (wet on wet) and glazing.
I offer lessons catered to each individuals level of expertise. I can work from a guided curriculum with projects, excercises, and demos that teach the use of values, color, composition, light, and edges, or work with a student on a specific subject matter or project of their choosing.

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.

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. I would definitely recommend her services.

About Rose
I'm a professional fine art, portrait photographer and arts educator based in Winston-Salem, NC. I teach photography at WSSU and moved to the area from NYC, where I worked in professional advertising and fine art photography for the last 10 years. Prior to NYC, I was in London working in fashion and advertising photography. I have also worked in the non-profit sector in arts administration, specializing in education, programming and artist residencies.

I have a diverse background in all things photo and love teaching this absolutely invaluable skill.

If you are looking to learn the basics of photography, on either film or any digital camera, or mastering studio lighting, I can meet any student at any level and create lessons just for your needs. I can work with groups, couples, parents and children and teach all aspects of photogra
phy.

In addition to my professional experience, I have degrees in Photography and Art History from the City College of New York and Daytona State College.

When I'm not teaching I'm usually working on a photography project! I publish and exhibit my work regularly throughout the US and spend a lot time outdoors with my family!

About Dave
We will consult and make a plan based off tricks and exercises I know from over a decade as an art teacher (with a masters in education) If someone is willing to listen, have fun, and practice, we will have a great time with no limits on the mastery of visual arts you can obtain. If they aren't compliant (lazy hater teens) I am pretty good at dealing with angsty kids. I have always been "the cool teacher" and gotten along just fine, and gotten work out of the ones people call "the bad kids."

$$ This service is priced slightly higher because it is substantially superior to the competition.

Hey there! I am a very creative, kind, and vibrant teacher! I love to teach anything I am passionate about, and have experience teaching in a foreign country as well! I have tutored in a variety of subjects, and always have students tell me how much fun they have in their lessons, and sometimes they even end up gaining a new appreciation for the subject I am teaching them! I am a firm believer in teaching with love and patience, and love to get to know my students and form a good relationship with them (especially if it is more than a one time lesson). My prices are flexible, and skill set is pretty wide! So excited to get to work with you!!
