My 6 year old daughter really enjoyed her online drawing lesson with Jessica. The lesson was well-structured and thought through. The materials Jessica picked were diverse and informative. I was amazed how Jessica made the online lesson seem as if she was right here in our house. I asked my daughter how many more lessons should I set up for her and she answered: many, many more! I strongly recommend Jessica to any student learning graphite drawing!

Both of my children take class with Jessica. She keeps the lesson fun and really encourages both of my children. She is very talented and knows how to reach young artists to help inspire them. I highly recommend her as an instructor. This was our third class with her and we have every intention to continue taking lessons with her.

Welcome to the world of Photography! Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to gain an understanding of the basics. Basics such as the exposure triangle, how to compose and pick your shots, different uses for the tools found in Photoshop and Lightroom (post processing), how to effectively use lighting, and much more. As time goes on you'll be able to retouch and stylize your photos, to give them that professional look you have been wanting. All you need to get started is a camera and your eye. I look forward to seeing you and as always stay creative!

Based upon a strict but fun adherence to keeping a sketchbook and a journal drawing gets improved. We start out with what makes a drawing for beginners and move through tones and values for intermediates by sticking to my formula for success. this includes using a sketchbook with assigned black and white photos every two weeks with grey scales entered.

I am now realizing I am more of a hands on person it is personally challenging for me to learn using this method. In an ideal world we would be learning by shooting in real time."
