About Emily S.

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.

For as long as I can remember I've been drawing in my free time. After going to Art school and learning how to draw on a professional level, I took note of how I was taught how to draw and am very confident on teaching you how to use a wide variety of tools to draw a wide variety of things.

I like to take pride in making my students feel secure and knowing and seeing the improvement they make within each session. I will be handing out a materials list prior to our lessons. Most students see a huge leap in drawing within the the first lesson! Class starts out usually with me giving a 1 hour demonstration on what I expect them to do as I cover and explain my entire process and thought and calculations that goes into drawing and painting. For the rest of the class I will be besides the student as they work giving them one on one pointers and as much help and explanation as they need in order to improve. Students start out with learning how to look and draw what they observe accurately by first working on simple geometric shapes such as spheres, cubes. We then will move on to Cast studies and after a few months of studying we will start on figures and portraits.

I had a huge coincidence by having a lesson with Kai in the Bay Area. He and I have the same point of view about learning drawing that helps me to understand his tips and instructions. It is a true pleasure to be his student, I was feeling like I’m detective who’s seeking for tips and clues and try to transfer all of that onto the paper. Also he is really good by explaining how to see simple shapes and figures in every object, how to extend an imaginary line and keep angles which did and will help me to draw more consciously. Highly recommend him anyone who wants to improve its drawing and painting skill.

Kai is an excellent instructor and has left a tramendious mark on me as both a student and an artist. Kai may be young, but he has knowledge beyond his years through skill and ambitiously being self taught he has been commended on nationally. Kai in the fall attended FACE and was recently awarded a certificate of excellence from The Portrait Society of America. I very grateful to have worked with him and been walked through his very informative and beautiful demos. Crique from Kai is wonderful and facilitates vast and constructive improvement in skill level. Would highly recommend Kai!

Drawing is the process of learning to see & allowing your hand to move with your mind as you process what you see. It is line, space, shape, shadow, texture, mass, value, light, and the inspiration of the artist. It ranges from sketching to detailed drawing--depending on your temperament and interest.
Additionally, you can schedule a lesson and let me know that you want to use it as a critique to review some of your work. I recommend the 45 minute session for a critique.

Jane helped me through some self doubting/negative thinking places. She was sensitive to where I am and acknowledged that. Then we moved on to paint more from there, continuing to learn and grow. I am rejuvinated! Thank you, Jane.

We painted together. I found that very helpful. We also focused on watercolor
basics, ex. how to use brush for different effects, mixing colors to get the one
I want. She answers my questions. Thank you, Jane.

Kathy was wonderful working with my son and really took the time to get to know him and his personal intetests. She then patiently guided him through some if the essentials of drawing while incorporating subject matter that would inspire and motivate him. I would highly recommend her if you are looking for personalized and knowledgeable instruction.
