There is a complexity in the teaching of art that includes giving students the knowledge of different techniques in art, as well as teaching the process of creating, and the process of finding their own way in painting. Teaching art, for me, is not only a pleasure, but also a wonderful way to exchange my personal vision of life with my students.
I have 15 years of teaching experience in my studio and high education levels. I am a working artist myself and know the steps my students could take to study painting and express themselves in Art. The students will learn the elemental composition, color theory, use of brushes, different techniques, and movement in painting.
I teach beginners to intermediate artist in my studio and online.

I took my first class with Sylvia this week and she is a very good teacher. She helped me learn a new skill on first class by showing me than having me do the same tasks.

We'll cover the whole process of illustration, from concepts and thumbnails, to the finished piece. Do you want to draw cool fashion illustrations for magazines? Maybe you have an idea for a comic or illustrated book you want to bring to life? Or maybe you want to create a film concept and work on world-building and designing characters, props, and environments. No matter what your goals are, we'll work together to create a lesson plan that works for you. We'll discuss what inspires you most and figure out how to infuse parts of those things into your own work.

In our lessons, we'll build upon drawing foundations and strengthen your understanding of color, line, value, composition, design, and visual storytelling.

Jessi has been a tremendous help for my Design II class. They taught me all the proper techniques and was very patient with me and my extremely minimal amount of skill. Thanks to them I managed to get a much better grade than I usually would in these types of media classes (i'm so so so bad at technology) and I feel more autonomous when it comes to designing my own posters for shows.
Destiny
Jessi was always kind, honest and extremely helpful with her critiques of my work. Her guidance helped me understand key concepts in what makes good art and I improved so much because of it! I highly recommend her as a tutor!

"I held a virtual team painting event and invited Sharon to be our tutor. My team has a tight budget, but Sharon managed to fit the painting kit under the budget & the paint was high quality! She also made a video helping us prepare for the painting event: how to stain the palette, how to wash the brushes and how to coat the canvas.

In the painting event, we had a large group (~15 people), so it’s very difficult to coordinate. People had different questions every 5 mins, or people asked the same questions, or you had to wait for other people. Sharon was very patient to answer everyone’s questions. We even went overtime but Sharon was very nice that she continued finishing the painting with us.

All my teammates produced very nice paintings! Majority of them have never painted before, but they created beautiful paintings under Sharon’s guidance. Thank you Sharon!"

And we'll also discuss the benefits of two styles of studio lighting. The natural lighting of a photo will be much softer and a warmer look while using studio lighting gives your photos a more ov …
