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.

It was our first class together so part of it was organizing myself. I look forward to more classes with Marina.

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.

About Nick
My name is Nick and I am a freelance photographer located in Tyngsborough, Massachusetts. I am new to the TakeLessons platform but have many years of experience as a photographer and photography teacher.

I specialize in travel, fine art and sports action photography. I am a life-long photographer having worked for a weekly newspaper, a motorcycle racing magazine, as a wedding and event photographer, and as a sports photographer. Over the last 15 years I have photographed local town events, Middle and High School sports, college football, fund-raising events for non-profit organizations, motorcycle racing, bicycle racing, running road races, Rock ‘n Roll bands, and high school senior portraits. I am now focusing most of my time traveling around the world and making and exhibiting my photographs of the local landscapes and people. Many o
f my images have been published in newspapers, on various websites, and exhibited in many art galleries.

I enjoy teaching students how to "make" photographs, drawing from the skills and techniques that I have learned from my real-world experiences as a photographer. My students learn how to use their camera as an expression of their artistic vision. They will learn all aspects of workflow including research and preparation, camera settings, composition, post-processing, printing, and framing. The goal is for each student to create images that they would be proud to exhibit or display on their wall at home.

Whether you are a beginner or an experienced photographer, please contact me for further information, to discuss your goals and objectives for making pictures, or to schedule a session. I offer both in person and remote lessons. Thank you.

Nick is patient, knowledgeable, and a great photography instructor. I've learned more from him in a couple of lessons than I've learned from a couple of books I've been using to try and learn on my own. Well-worth the time and cost for personal instruction. Highly recommend.

About Chelsea
I’m Chelsea! I’m an artist in Portland who works primarily in oil paint, but occasionally works with water based paints as well. I love painting portraits, figures, landscapes, and imaginative scenes. I studied fine arts at Florida State University, and I’m comfortable teaching all levels. We can do studio work, learn how to plan and execute large projects, or just have fun outside painting the sky or the trees. Whatever your goal is, I’ll help you succeed while having a lot of fun!

About Margot
I am a graduate of Dartmouth College where I completed a Major in Studio Art. I work both in oils (painting) and in several drawing media (charcoal, graphite, colored pencil, pen and ink, etc.). My work has won several awards and been exhibited throughout Massachusetts and New Hampshire. As an exhibiting member of several art associations (including the Wellesley Society of Artists, the Dedham Art Association, and the Malden Sketch Group), I am active in the Boston area artist community. I draw and paint everyday. I attend figure drawing sessions at least twice each week to keep my skills fresh. In my personal art practice I specialize in portraiture but I occasionally dabble in landscape, still life, or whatever catches my artist's eye. I find the creation of art an amazingly fulfilling pursuit and I enjoy sharing my passion with others.

I especially love the process of designing because of where you start and where you end. The future can be quite exciting. Learning shouldn’t be a chore, it should be fun and exciting in creative ways.

About Sabrina
Hi there! My name is Sabrina and I am an artist. I have experience with many different mediums. I currently study art at Kennesaw State University as a junior concentrating in digital animation. I first found my love for teaching art when I became a painting instructor at Painting with a twist in 2017. I taught there for a year and a half before I went off to college. I love teaching art to people of all ages and levels of experience. All you need is a love and passion for art and we could create anything! My lessons would be specific to the students needs and interests. I look forward to creating with you! :)
