James was a wonderful instructor! Not only did he make my son feel confident about taking lessons he offered great advice and guidance about the acting industry. I would definitely recommend him to anyone seriously interested in improving their acting skills. My son is 12 years old.

Deron is very patient. He teaches me different techniques from start of painting, to finishing touches. He is knowledgeable and can convey them clearly. He makes
the painting session fun and I like the interaction with him. Great teacher !!!

While Deron is extremely knowledgeable. ...drawing / sketching is new and I felt that too much was given to me as a beginner in such a short (two hours) span of time. I'm sure after a few more lessons I'll feel more adequate for the task!

I can teach students at all levels, from learning basic composition and drawing to creating full-fledged comics or paintings. I can also help with (college) portfolio preparation.

Whatever the student's goals in illustration, I will help achieve!

As a professional illustrator, I've worked for Disney Research in Pittsburgh and have been illustrating for clients as a freelance artist. I graduated from Carnegie Mellon University with a Bachelor's in Fine Arts.

Do I really have to give review after giving 5 star?
But this is for those who need it,
First of all she is classical former Disney artist and for the basics it's necessary to learn 2d in today's time.
Ruth mentored me from the beginning of my career and I have learned a lot, she is so caring, kind and loving. I will recommend you to take lesson from her
You will get the best knowledge out of her, whatever I'm today is because of her.

Quite honestly it's difficult for me to write a review that truly describes Ruth Elliot-Hilsdon, she is that talented an individual. I've known Ruth for several years now and I'm well aware of her outstanding career in animation. That said, as an educator, Ruth is phenomenal. Ruth worked with my daughter in animation. Her kind nurturing approach to teaching was amazing. My daughter learned, accomplished much and enjoyed the experience. Ruth is a delightful individual, a true professional and an individual dedicated to whatever goal she sets. I recommend her highly.

In my Illustration classes I strive to not only help you develop the skills and techniques you'll need as an illustrator but I also am here to help you land your first gig! Not only will we talk about the actual creation process but we will produce several illustrations together that hopefully can be used in a portfolio to show to friends, family, and maybe even an employer!
