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.

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 understand 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.

Kai is an excellent instructor and has left a tramendious mark on me as both a student and an artist. Kai may be young, but he has knowledge beyond his years through skill and ambitiously being self taught he has been commended on nationally. Kai in the fall attended FACE and was recently awarded a certificate of excellence from The Portrait Society of America. I very grateful to have worked with him and been walked through his very informative and beautiful demos. Crique from Kai is wonderful and facilitates vast and constructive improvement in skill level. Would highly recommend Kai!

Megan was engaging, genuine, and had an extremely well-prepared lesson for us to start with. I felt like I gained a lot of important perspective about art, in both a technical sense and regarding the mentality of creating art. Great teacher. Looking forward to another lesson.

About Nicole
I love art and I am passionate about making things beautiful. That spills over into Graphic design, Painting and more: I have 20+ years as a graphic designer, photographer 10+ years, artist/painter. I have been instructing for over 6 years. All of my artistic positions led me to run a print shop for several years so I know what you need to prep files for printing, photography, page layout, web and much more so that your files meet industry standards. If your a fast learner, I can go at a faster pace, if you need more time, I am fine with that too. My goal is for you to learn well, advance and put the skills I teach you to use. Then we will layer that info and move on. I'll incorporate reviewing what we worked on before in the future lessons. I want you to be able to put to practice what I teach you so that you can successfully manage on
your own in that area.

I love being outside, I love the water and get inspired by nature. I am not a camping type person but could sleep outside nightly (on a screened in porch, LOL). I love to enjoy life and want you to enjoy learning something new as well.

Nicole professionally layed out, designed, and printed the obituary of my husband using Adobe Photoshop. Her helpful, yet sensitive suggestions regarding picture arrangements on the pages of the obituary were appreciated. She was timely and easy to work with. I highly recommend her as an instructor.

About Joey
Hello Artist-in-Progress,

We are all artists-in-progress because, no matter how good we are, we can always get better!

I'm Mr. Joey and I love art and I love teaching art! I am a graduate of The Art Institute and an artist and animator that creates art in pencil, charcoal, pastel, watercolor, and digital mediums.

I recommend that classes are *at least* 1.5 hours (and I really recommend 2 hours!) because that's what's needed to critique homework assignments, warmup, and do the work for the class, and not be rushed.

Classes I teach are:

• Drawing Fundamentals
• Advanced Drawing
• People and Anatomy
• Portrait Drawing
• Cartoon Characters for Animation
• Character Design
• 2D Animation
• Digital Painting in Photoshop
• Digital Animation

Please view samples of my work and contact me with any questions you may hav
e.

I look forward to helping you develop your art skills and express your creativity!

Mr. Joey

Friendly and versatile British born artist. I've been working as a professional artist for 9 years mainly focusing on the human figure and portraiture, however, we'll work around what you want to paint, your style and your aims. With exercises and practice students can expect to see their drawing and painting technique improve week to week. Happy to teach all levels of ability and ages.

About Angela
As a professional artist, I have exhibited in 30 exhibitions including in Europe. I most recently worked as a photographer, artist and writer on a documentary in the American West featuring artists working to save wild horses. I also was the director of an art program in Santa Barbara that taught the arts to over 500 youth for ten years.

I am a long time teacher with a Ph.D. My dissertation was a research study looking at the value of the arts in education. I often work on projects nationally as a contributor for various non profit causes that use the arts to bring attention to various worthwhile issues.

After 25 years of teaching in many settings, including a university, an arts project, and at both private and public schools as well as giving private lessons, it has been my experience that art is a skill that anyone can learn with su
pport. Picasso was absolutely correct when he said " Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up!"

I have a Bachelor's degree in Fine Art from University of California at Santa
Barbara, A Master's degree in Organizational Non Profit Management and a Ph.D. in Human Development. All of my work and studies have involved art, photography and writing and often non-profit causes.

I teach students from all levels of art experience, from those who have never attempted to draw, to students who have many years experience looking to exhibit their art or make a living from it, I also teach art history in a fun way that helps you learn from painters who have created styles that help artists learn ways to improve their own work. I consider sharing my love of the arts a privilege!

I have taught many “so-called” Non- Artists to draw and paint and sculpt and have encouraged many others with art experience who are longing to further or start their art careers.

All that said, the most important thig I have to pass along is my personal LOVE of art and my commitment to encouraging others to find their own gift of creative expression! My art students do NOT need special skills or talents just a willingness to want to express themselves! Art is a funny thing, the more you enjoy it and learn it in a relaxed way, the better your actual art turns out when you make it. Hope to meet you and teach you soon!
