Terrible experience. Couldn't connect online, 20 minutes after start time called him and he tried to assist, but ended up doing a "phone lesson" which consisted of a question and answer time where I had to come up with my own questions. To conclude we were told to go out and take some pictures on our own and learn from experimenting on our own taking pictures of all kinds of things. We could then download them, send to him, and he could critique.
Not what I expected. Not necessarily his fault, but Going to ask for refund

when I made an appointment, I asked if Sergey was familiar with my camera and they said yes. It seemed new to him. But after talking about my fijifilm x100F, I am returning the camera. So overall I did like Sergey and look forward to my next Hour

About Daniel

My name is Dan. The only thing that I love more than painting is teaching students how to paint. I call my teaching method, "serious play". In other words, I want the students to learn something of value during each class, but also to enjoy the creative process that is key to making a successful painting.

Keep the brushes wet, make every stroke count! Very patient - you’ve just got to do it. Been invaluable in guiding the composition - he can’t hold the brush for you! For a “left brained” person like myself I need to get the “slap”!😄

Great teacher! Saw myself getting a lot better after each lesson

Janice
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.

About Roxie

Okay! Bio time!

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away....

Just kidding!

I'm a pretty normal girl that loves music and art. Fun fact: I spent years and years studying music since I was 7 but I actually went to college for art and graphic design. I fell into teaching music by a friend who offered a position in her music studio and I fell in love with teaching from there.

I go out and perform shows (singing, playing guitar) and I still write songs too. I find that even though I'll never be Taylor Swift that music is so vital to expressing myself. I love helping others find their voice in music so they can have that same way of expressing themselves too!

Also, if you're interested I can show you all the paintings of dogs I've done. :D

About Tori

I am a professional artist and musician in Chattanooga, TN! I have been teaching art and music for six years in California and Tennessee. I have been painting since I was big enough to hold a paintbrush and playing the harp for over 15 years. I have a degree from Stanford University in Art Practice (Painting) and studied and performed under the tutelage of Marjorie Chauvel at Stanford University.

My harp students can expect fun weekly lessons that go over basic harp technique, music theory, sight reading, and music history. Beyond that, all your lessons will be tailored to YOUR music goals. Do you want to learn to arrange covers of your favorite songs? Let's get to it! I supplement my lessons by teaching good habits for practicing, exercises and stretches to minimize muscle fatigue, and the basics of how to find performance opportunit

ies to share your love of the harp with the world!

My art students can expect similarly tailored lessons. I teach most forms of visual art from oil painting to sculpture to photography to drawing. Once we've talked about your goals and hopes and dreams as a new artist, we will work together to develop a skillset in creativity that will last a lifetime.

I can't recommend lessons with Tori highly enough!

I've been obsessed with oil painting, and every kind of 2D visual art, for as long as I can remember, but I never really believed in myself to do it until I worked with Tori.

My drawing, painting, and even my 3D work progressed more, and more quickly, working with Tori than they had in years

Thank you Tori!!!!

My three boys (ages 11-15) loved working with Tori. We still have the block print-making pieces, paintings and charcoal drawings displayed in our kitchen. Their favorite project was creating plaster casts of their own faces. Tori is very thoughtful, patient and has a great zen energy. I highly recommend Tori!

"I had a huge coincidence by having a lesson with Kai in the Bay Area. He and I have the same point of view about learning drawing that helps me to underst
and his tips and instructions. It is a true pleasure to be his student, I was feeling like I’m detective who’s seeking for tips and clues and try to transfer all of that onto the paper. Also he is really good by explaining how to see simple shapes and figures in every object, how to extend an imaginary line and keep angles which did and will help me to draw more consciously. Highly recommend him anyone who wants to improve its drawing and painting skill."

Miley
"Eli is fantastic and has a great rapport with kids. He seems incredibly knowledgeable, very response, nice and funny, and currently teaches in an amazing
artists space. He challenged my daughter outside of her normal comfort zone in a super fun way and she immediately asked for more lessons after the initial trial. Will definitely continue with more lessons."

Hongyu
"Kai is an excellent teacher! I have been taking lessons with Kai for two months. Kai has a lot of unique drawing skills! I like how he encourages me to re
