Learning to draw is the best foundation for any artist. I teach my students through various techniques and assignments to understand form and spatial relationships. This tool is what many artists refer to as the ability to "see." This will not only improve your accuracy but your overall skills as an artist in other medias also.

About Sondra

Hello future student :) My name is Sondra and I would love to help you achieve your artistic goals! I received my Bachelor's in Fine Arts from The Oregon College of Art and Craft, a school that gave me background in modern, conceptual art. That being said, I'm a huge fan of strong technical skill

Daniel is a fantastic chess teacher. I am at an intermediate level, and have had two lessons with Daniel so far, and I can already see my game improving. Daniel is very professional, and I can tell he genuinely cares about advancing my skills. I would highly recommend Daniel to anyone interested in a chess teacher.

I teach the fundamental basis for all representational drawing. From still life to portraits and the figure leading up to advanced genre or multi-figure pictures. I have been drawing and painting my whole life and love to teach drawing and painting to anyone who wants to learn. Visual communication skills are a foundation for many forms of problem solving skills. These skills all lead to a keen sense of awareness of ones self and environment.

About Preston

I have hundreds of hours teaching experience in many subjects spaning from sports chess and the arts. I have won numerous awards for my ability to communicate the detailed aspects of complicated intricate subject matter. I have been verified to teach all ages and have numerous background checks esta

Amazing teacher! Got me up from 1000 to 1400 in 1 month. Used a principles based approach.

Great with a 10 yr old! Encouraging and patient. Great personality and a good artist.

Preston is a very nice coach. I was a beginner with zero experience before. After five lessons, I gained solid basic skills and feel more comfortable to rally. I feel growing by leaps and bounces.

He is very sharp about identifying the problem and then training accordingly. He is also kind and very patient to guide

I have been teaching professionally for more than 10 years. I can teach a total beginner and I guarantee a profound change in terms of his skill level after 2 months of an attentive following of my instructions. I like to watch the progress of my student and this is what brings me the best satisfaction in my occupation.
I think that every human being is unique with his own unique way of thinking and perception of common things. When teaching, I believe in dialogue, for this reason, I never record my lessons on video, except for the promotional needs. I like to meet new students, to understand their way of thinking and to invent the individual teaching approach or methodology for each one of them.

About Danil

I am an academically trained professional artist with the overall working experience of about 20 years and an impressive record of exhibitions (two of them are museum one-man shows) in the USA and abroad. I am teaching in three languages: ENGLISH, HEBREW and RUSSIAN, representational, realist, i

I haven’t expected such a strong impact on me. Danil changed my perception of the drawing. His explanations are clear and interesting. Now I am really involved into learning and improving my technics!
Erin Vasquez
Great, passionate teacher
Ira Polubesova
I was very lucky to take private lessons with Danil - after only a few of them I had a clear systematic approach to my drawing process. I very much appreciate analytical way of work in art, and that’s what Danil was doing greatly : he sharpens the tools while keeping your individuality. Highly recommended!

"I have always felt like I had a creative impulse I needed to express, but felt like I needed some solidified skills to be able to begin. I felt nervous about starting to learn something new at my age, but from the first conversation I had with Jessica, I knew I would feel absolutely at ease learning with her. Jessica is both an experienced educator and a truly inspired artist. One of the first things she taught me was how to look at the world around me differently and in a more open way that allowed me to translate that to paper. It was exhilarating. Jessica is absolutely lovely, knowledgeable and provides tangible instructions that are showing their effect on paper! I am so thrilled with the work I am creating with her continued instruction. I cannot more highly reccommend studying with Jessica!"
