About Rhiannon

My name is Rhiannon and I am a third generation crafter. Originally I went to school for art history, all the while crafting. Eventually I had enough of studying other people's work and instead wanted to make my own and empower others to do the same.

I consider myself to be the "Swiss Army Knife" of crafters. I have delved into nearly every craft and love passing this knowledge onto my students. For these reasons I have a diverse range of crafts I can teach, including: knitting, crochet, embroidery, hairpin lace, needle felting, and shuttle tatting. In addition to my passion for a variety of crafts, I also love teaching a variety of skill levels, from students beginning their first stitch to someone who wants to redesign a pattern.

With a positive attitude and a willingness to learn I can teach you any of a variety of crafts.

I'm enjoying my classes. I've been bringing Rhiannon stitches I want to learn without any notice, and she is always able to help me on the spot to learn them. Her flexibility (both in what I want to learn and in scheduling) makes private classes a pleasant and worthwhile investment. Highly recommend!

About Kathy

I’m Kathy and I am a professional artist in New York! I received my Masters of Fine Arts and the San Francisco Art Institute and my Bachelors degree at Skidmore College. I make painting and textile-based 3D installations and have shown widely in the Bay Area, New York, and Chicago. I was a past artist in residence at the Vermont Studio Center, Recology, and the Lucid Art Foundation. I’m passionate about arts education, interdisciplinary thinking, art history, ecological stewardship, and color theory. I love teaching art!

I’ve taught a variety of ages and skill levels and care about each student as an individual artist and human being. I design individualized lesson plans for each student with creative, engaging assignments that focus on both technical skill and personal expression. I love helping my students learn and grow as artists.

And I love little kids, so if you're a parent or guardian who just wants your child to have fun with art, I'm the teacher for you!

I’m passionate about art history and color theory. In our lessons, not only will you learn how to draw and paint, you will also learn the cultural history around the subject. I will show you historical and contemporary examples of artwork that fit thematically with our lessons. We will have engaging conversations about art while we draw and paint. I can also point you towards art openings happening around New York.

My personal teaching style is patient, constructive, and encouraging. With practice and hard work, I can help you achieve your goals.

Other things I love include: Spending time in the Great Outdoors, listening to Billie Holiday, and cooking elaborate meals!

Have a question? Don't be shy, send me a message and let's get started! I can't wait to meet you.

About Bora

Know thyself is the saying, and it applies to chess as well.

Everyone is different. Each has his/her different objectives. Everyone also his/her own strengths and weaknesses.

I tailor the lessons taking these into the account, and focusing on improving on the weaknesses within the framework of the student's goals.

I try to put the emphasis on calculation, middle-game positions, and endgames, however.

I am taking weekly lessons with Bora in order to push my game to the next level. Bora is passionate about chess, and it really shows in his approach to teaching, which I find to be both entertaining and effective. Bora is also a nice person all around and I would not hesitate to recommend him to my friends and/or their kids.

Had my first ever billiards lesson and loved it. George is a very effective instructor - he explains well, he corrects your form, he's patient, and he brings the game to life. Looking forward to continuing with George and getting better at the game.

About Kelove

I am a communications designer, I graduated with a bachelors from Pratt Institute 2019. I went to the HighSchool of Fashion Industries 2010 - 2014 with a design garment shown on WWD Magazine my senior year. I have always been interested in different art forms, like drawing, painting, sewing, music, movies and videos, designing logos and posters, clothing. I especially love the process of designing because of where you start and where you end. The future can be quite exciting. Learning shouldn’t be a chore, it should be fun and exciting in creative ways.
