Professional and internationally exhibited artist based in New York City. I make mixed media abstract paintings using acrylic paint, fabric, paper, canvas and a variety of found materials.

Art has always been my focus in life, since childhood, when I took my first ceramics and oil painting classes.

About Jessica
I am a visual artist who has been exhibiting my artwork across the US since 2009 and teaching since 2006. I got my BA from Vassar College, and a Masters in Education through the NYC Teaching Fellows program. I am deeply passionate about drawing and love to share this passion with others. I believe that art isn't for the talented few but for the passionate many and what counts most of all is that you're having fun!

My drawings tend to celebrate the beautiful and surprising in the mundane. I have worked in a variety of media but my preferred material is good old-fashioned pencil on paper. I have had solo and group exhibitions, my work has been published in print and online, one of my drawings is on the cover of a philosophy book, I have exhibited at several art fairs, and I have won many fellowships, grants, and artist residencies.

Our drawing lessons will begin with learning to use the most basic materials: charcoal, erasers, pencil and paper. We will spend a lot of time learning the art of looking because above all, drawing is about observation and translating what you see.
You will begin to notice improvements in your skills after the first class!

I look forward to drawing with you.

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.

About Mariana
I am a professional artist. I've been studying representative fine art at the Art Students League of New York since 2013.

My students can expect to improve week to week in their drawing and painting techniques. While gaining knowledge of the fundamental principles of perception—light, plane-structure, tonal value, perspective, proportion—students will learn to construct images that realistically and accurately interpret objects in space. This solid foundation will enable students to express their personal creative vocabulary more clearly and effectively.

I teach students of all different ages and experience levels.

My personal passion is realism in classical and contemporary art but I firmly believe that great technique is essential to any and every style. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better artist!

Mariana thank you so much for your generosity! I have always wanted to paint with oils but didn’t know how to start. The way you teach makes it very simple and fun for me. Will continue painting.

Lessons with Mariana were very helpful. I started as a beginner and she helped me to learn basic theory behind drawing, as well as to develop my skills and gain confidence. I studied graphite anatomical drawing and advanced a lot in that technique since we started a year ago.

Before I met Anna my writing skill was not that much good. Her teaching style is the best way to learn. She encourages me to write more and share her knowledge. I really learned a lot from her. Anna is a disciplined professional. She's a dedicated trainer, very patient and offers great techniques and great advice. Anna is a warm and caring person.

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.
