Lessons would be individualized to focus on areas that need the most guidance.

About Melissa
I have been teaching since 2006 on a variety of topics. I graduated with an BA from the University of Wisconsin. My degree is in History with and emphasis on East Asian history.

I've taught all age groups from age 2 up to retirees. My teaching experience includes one-on-one and group classes in a variety of settings. I've taught corporate classes, private lessons, small groups, and traditional classroom lessons.

We have a student-centric philosophy of learning. Lessons are generally relaxed and designed to work towards accomplishing student determined goals. While all students will study similar fundamentals regarding technique, theory, and performance, every lesson is as different as every person. Special focus on topics like music theory, self-accompaniment, composition, song writing, and home recording are available as well.


What are your personal goals? We'll tell you what you need to do to get there, and help you take the steps to achieve your aspirations.

Lessons with small children are more focused on just having fun while developing a good musical foundation, but we prefer for them to have as much personal ownership of their lesson as possible.

Melissa is patient, explains the concepts very well, she is hands on and makes the lessons very entertaining and dynamic. The way she selects the material for her students she finds the right balance between effective learning, fun and interesting. We are very fortunate to have her as a piano teacher.

My daughter struggled to stay focused for the whole one hour. It would be better to have video conference option so she can see the teacher.

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.

I took painting lessons about 10 years ago and haven’t done anything since. I brought a 1/2 finished painting. Maggie was great helping me set up and seeing where I was and what I remembered. Then showed me some techniques to help get me going. I’m looking forward to our next lesson.

Many people think they can't draw. I used to be one of them. Now, I know that everyone can draw, they just need to learn how to translate what they see into an image. We will start with contour, move into gesture, create the illusion of 3D form using value and color, composition and even create the illusion of space. We will use a variety of media including graphite, charcoal, pastels (oil and chalk) and even use paint. It's really lots of fun!

About John
Hello! My name is John and I can teach you to draw and paint. I am high energy, funnier than all get out, yet have a serious love of art. Let's explore not just the technical side of drawing/painting, but let's help you discover how to express your creative self!

About Nicole H.

Kapolei, HI
View Full Profile

I have experience as a student, professional, tutor and mentor in the visual arts in the last ten years. During this time I have learned that everyone is capable of drawing or painting, but they seldom have the confidence to see themselves through learning this knew skill. I can teach you how to see an object, person or landscape in a way that allows you to realistically portray that on paper or canvas. I can teach you the skills required to be confident in your chosen medium and mend the disconnect between what you want to create and what you are capable of creating. I'm as excited to teach you as you are to learn. Let's work together!

About Nicole
I am a professional freelance illustrator and painter. I graduated from Northern Michigan University in 2011 with a BFA and a concentration in Illustration. I excel in portraiture and imaginative realism (or fantasy art) and I'm comfortable in most traditional mediums (Pencil or graphite, colored pencil, oil painting, acrylic paintings, watercolors) as well as digital programs for drawing and painting (mostly Photoshop.)

I feel confident that everyone has the ability to do what they desire creatively provided they have the right teacher. As a former student, I understand the frustrations behind learning a seemingly magical skill like drawing realistically. As a current artist, I know the skills required to overcome those frustrations and the attitude necessary to improve upon your existing abilities.

Students can expect to improve
with every lesson and are given advice for what they can do in the future to improve further. All critiques and lessons will be constructive concerning what you're doing right and what you can work on to be better. In my experience, I've learned that every student can be taught to create as long as their unique needs are understood and the teacher is patient. I truly believe anyone can learn to draw and paint and I'm excited to prove that to you.

Rosemary is a dedicated artist and teacher. She worked with my daughter to create her high school visual arts portfolio. Rosemary demonstrated not only a clear knowledge of what high schools were looking for in a portfolio but she knew my daughter as an artist. This helped to guide us in the high school selection process. With her guidance, my daughter is attending AND thriving at the high school of her dreams!
