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.

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.

As a beginner, I was nervous. Super unnecessary! Milda is very patient, kind, and encouraging. I feel more confident about my sewing goals and my current progress. Looking forward to my next lesson. Only regret is not signing up ages ago.

If you need beginner Photoshop lessons. Milda is awesome. She is patient and caring. When I didn't know how to do something she was able to break it down and walk me through it step by step. Highly recommend her to anyone who is new to Photoshop.

I have known Amber many years and can attest to her artistic capabilities. I have sat in on two of her painting classes; she was great at walking us through the piece step-by-step, and was very patient with all our questions. She laughed with us and made it fun! I would recommend her to anyone and look forward to learning from her again!

Amber taught me how to do a painting of a snow man so I can give to my mom for Christmas and she did a wonderful job teaching to where I can understand. And it turned out great.
