Private Drawing Teacher

I can teach drawing at any level. My goal is for the student to improve and work towards their desired achievements -- whether it's just to get better at drawing, work towards making a masterpiece, or putting together a portfolio to get into their desired art school.

In drawing, I'd work primarily in pencils or conte crayon. Otherwise the medium of choice could be digital (Photoshop or any similar digital medium).

I've been drawing since I was 4, and have graduated from Carnegie Mellon University with a Bachelor's in Fine Arts. I've also worked for Disney Research for a year and a half, and now freelance as an artist for clients.

About Emily

I've been working professionally as an artist since 2009, making graphics and illustrations for clients and having worked for Disney Research for just over a year. I graduated from Carnegie Mellon University with a Bachelor's in Fine Arts in 2012. I'm currently a freelance artist, but I also love contributing to the art education community by inspiring and instructing anyone who wants to learn.

I specialize in drawing/illustration, digital painting, and 2D hand-drawn frame-by-frame digital animation, mostly in the context of video games (with 2D graphics). Many of my drawing/animation students have been interested in drawing/animating animals, especially furry/anthro memes. I've helped students complete tiny looping animations, creating memes as well as short films.

My hope and mission is to successfully distribute my knowledge,

skills and experience to anyone who wants to acquire them.

I'm capable of a large range of improvements, from goals as hobbyists to more professional goals. I have successfully helped students get admitted into their desired art schools through portfolio preparation, as well as helped artists get their first gigs as freelancers. I can serve as a mentor for an artist's early years as a contractor.

Lessons are taught through Google Hangouts video calls where I always share my screen to clearly show my demonstrations in real time. Students may also share their screens if they are working digitally. If students work on paper, they may take phone pics and message/email them to me during class, or hold up their work on the webcam if it's high enough quality.

Thank you for your interest!

This was my first introduction to animation. Emily was great! She was patient, and very knowledgeable. She taught me how to use my software and showed me different techniques I could do. Planning on taking a couple more classes

Learn to draw using the classical realist techniques taught in traditional ateliers. In this elegant and inspiring primer, master contemporary artist and author Marina Bichinsky breaks down the drawing process into small, manageable lessons; introduces time-tested principles and techniques that are easily accessible; and shares the language and context necessary to understand the artistic process and create superior, well-crafted drawings.

About Marina

As a child of five years old I was brought by my mom to Gulyaev’s Art Studio and this famous Ukrainian artist involved me in the marvelous world of fine art.

In high-school, I participated in a federally-funded program for the Gifted and Talented in Visual Art. After graduation I won a huge competition and was admitted as a student of the Architectural department of the Kiev Architectural Civil University. In 2001, I become a student, hand-selected by the director of extraordinary Master degree program of Visual Communication, offered by Syracuse University (Syracuse, NY). In master classes, we learned from each other and worked with the best illustrators: Murray Tinkelman and Cris Payne, Dave Passalaqua and Sano Kazu (Kazuhini), Bunny (Alice) Carter and Bob d’Sey, I love to learn new skills and keep learning new styles and techniques

all the time. This love has inspired my beloved students to do the same.

I've known Marina for a very long time and while I haven't taken any classes yet, I most definitely would recommend her to anyone who's looking for a good art teacher. She is a very talented artist and has a rare ability to inspire people to be creative. Her students' paintings are awesome and always make me smile looking at them.

Want to draw your best friend, lifetime pet, or a flower you might have come across on a recent walk? Or, do you just wish you could record your memories and dreams? Well, as it happens, you can.

Drawing with me will empower you with a basic understanding of shape, movement, line quality, light and shadows, composition, perspective, critical thinking, and best of all, the confidence to draw anything.

My approach to teaching art is influenced by my teachers from grade school through college as well as Betty Edwards' Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain and Mona Brookes' Drawing with Children: A Creative Method for Adult Beginners, Too.

To see if this course is right for you email me to start a conversation about your interests and expectations.

About Rachel

Hello everyone!

I am so excited to meet you and see what you have to say through art. Art is a way of seeing and understanding the world. Learning the basic tools for understanding and creating art will enrich your life, regardless of who you are.

To tell you more about myself, in New England I majored in Visual Art with a focus in painting, minoring in English as well. In Alaska I was home schooled throughout grade school, immersing myself in art classes, voice lessons, and the classical texts. I have have taught all ages, and a wide variety of approaches to drawing, including comic art. A few things you will learn from looking at my portfolio are that I love impressionism, people, texture, layers, and explosions of color.

Love to express yourself through art! Want to learn different techniques and skills to help you better put your ideas on paper? Then I'm the person! Let me show you helpful tricks and techniques to enhance your drawings. Wanna better capture peoples movements? Get better at shading? Then my lessons may be perfect for you.

About Donia

I am a retired actress and vocal enthusiast. I have retired from going to auditions, and performing paid gigs after I moved to Flagstaff to earn my degree in Social Work. I have spent my whole life mastering acting and vocals. I have been in the acting/modeling business since I was a toddler and was with an agency for some time. I have been in several commericals and films and countless musical productions. I also was in a music production program called CMAS for two years. I have eight plus years of vocal training. I am classically trained and trained in performing musical numbers. As for acting I have twelve years of experience and was in the advanced acting class at Dearing Studio for two years.

Voice students can expect to improve their range weekly. To learn how to read music. Each voice is unqiue and special and I will aslo teach t

hem the proper skills and techiqunes that prevent vocal nodules.

Acting students can expect to recieve at least one new scene each week or until they have mastered the scene they have given. As well as how to prepare headshots and resume.

I have experience teaching students of all ages even adults. I want to make sure I cater to each individual preferred way of learning. I want to make sure my students are allowed to be creative and love to make each lesson fun! I believe everyone learns differently. I also have experience in working with children with special needs.

I concentrate on lines. I take it stept by step. We won’t look at the piece as a whole but rather in portions, after all a drawing is a drawing because different kinds of lines come together to form the drawing. Whether it’s straight, curved, or wiggly lines. There is no need to feel overwhelmed, I will describe my way of looking and drawing a figure.

About Natalia

Hi! My name is Na, short for Natalia. I began drawing when I was 13 years old. I didn’t think was very good at first but I was always excited to run and show my mom when I felt proud of one. I love drawing portraits. It’s my favorite thing! It’s hard but anyone can do it if you take it step by step. I am currently a commission artist that paints and draw portraits for people. I love drawing entertainers because everyone recognizes them and they just think it’s awesome!
I’ve done art show around Dallas, TX where I take my work and hang showcase them and sell them.
Art for me is something that lights me up and keeps me out of my mind to just focus on getting the lines perfect or making sure the colors compliment each other.
I am looking forward to teaching what I have learned in my almost 10 years of experience.

Do you want to draw like Rembrandt? Do you want to be the next Van Gogh? Or maybe you want to be able to draw simple subject matter, like your family dog! Well, these are the online classes for you! My name is Timothy and I have been drawing for 30 years (pencil, pen & ink, colored pencil, and oil pastel). I enjoy sharing my art experience with others, no matter what age, no matter where you are beginning. I can begin with the simplest subject matter in drawing, like cartoons, and advance you into more advanced subject matter such as portraiture and drawing from life. My training is a balance of self taught instruction and my art teacher, John Gordon of newmasters.com, the designer of the Green Bay Packers logo!
What are you waiting for? Now is the time to cultivate your inner artist and use your artistic talents like never before. Contact me and let’s get the ball rolling.

About Timothy

I am a fun-loving art teacher who is looking for art students of all ages who want to learn, learn, learn! I enjoy sharing my experiences with you as I draw and paint, you can learn from my successes and my mistakes as an artist. To begin, I will ask you one thing: what is your goal and how far you do you want to go as an artist? (Yeah, maybe that’s two things). Based on that, I can help you develop into the artist YOU want to be! We can begin at the very basics or start off where you are, whatever the level. Whether you begin simply learning how to hold your pencil properly, or want to advance into painting from life, I will give you my very best advice and guidance to help you be your best artist. It’s time to unlock the inner artist within you and cultivate the talent that only YOU possess. There is no other artist like you just as th

ere is no one else who is exactly like you on earth!
Let’s get your lessons started and make some art... together.
