About Joy
I am a graduate of UC San Diego (bachelor of arts, sociology) and UCLA (master of public policy). As a child of immigrant parents, I value diversity and love learning languages. I read, write and speak Spanish fluently, and have intermediate command of both Cantonese and Mandarin Chinese in reading, writing, and speech.

Photography has been one of my main areas of focus for over ten years. I am trained in both film and digital formats and specialize in demystifying the DSLR so that you gain a good understanding of manual settings and how to use each to improve your photos.

Caring, compassion, and understanding are essential for learning and I strive to do my best in these areas.

About Tony
I am a British Academy Award winning animator who has made over 200 TV Commercials, 2 TV Specials, several Short Films, and ‘The Pink Panther Strikes Again’ movie titles at the beginning of my career. From the outset I was personally taught by some of the most amazing master animators ever - Ken Harris ('Bugs Bunny' and 'Roadrunner' for Warner Brothers), Art Babbit ('Pinocchio' and 'Fantasia' for Disney) and Richard Williams (3 times Oscar winner). I later successfully ran my own award-winning London animation studio for 20 years, before moving to the States in 1998 to live and teach. In the USA I have taught at the highest college level for over 14 years, when I also became author of several respected books on animation, including - 'Animation from Pencils to Pixels', 'How To Make Animated Films', 'The Animator's Notebook' and 'The Anima
tor's Sketchbook'. Animation schools and colleges around the world use my books. My own master animator reputation & expertise has been developed through traditional, hand-drawn (2D) animation for the film industry. However, I have since developed a whole range of teaching techniques that will help students of ALL forms of animation, whether its for the Film, Games, TV or the Web industries. The ‘core principles of movement’ are essential for all kinds of animation, whether it be 2D, 3D, Claymation, Stop-frame or any other kind. So I now focus less on technology and software, and more on the core principles of movement through ‘gesture drawing from observation’ and other means. In this way my students do not need to purchase extremely expensive equipment or software, they often need little more than a pencil, eraser and a sketchbook – with a lot of their own dedication they need to bring to the party. I am also insistent that students of animation also learn about fundamental design, layout, film structure and storyboarding - as all these are all essential to all great, animation. So I hope you will join me and become yet another of my successful students who are currently working in the animated film and/or video game fields today.

Tony White has the patience to watch inspired animators grow. His ideas feed into our concepts we have and he is the adviser that guides us to how our ideas become a reality on paper or on a monitor. He has assisted me to where I am today.

If I could be instructed by Tony White again and again, I'd never say no.

About Julian
Hello! I am a professional artist and educator. I have a BFA in illustration and an MFA in fine art painting, have exhibited nationally, and have been featured in various publications. My art tends towards narrative realism.

Having taught for over 9 years, my students can expect to progress methodically as they work towards their goal. I place an emphasis on solid observational foundations, as I feel that it is the bedrock of all good art. Whether it is drawing or painting, the process begins similarly, comfortably and logically becoming more challenging as students become adept at a given skill set. I simplify the process of interpreting a subject matter so that students can digest and grasp a concept.

Since the beginning I have consciously avoided teaching students my process. What matters more to me as an educator is that they learn
how to "see" something and break it down in a way that becomes their own. It all stems from the same repetition of exercises so that it becomes second nature, but I prefer a student understand what they are looking at instead of copying something. As I tell my students in class year after year, copying a photograph or life model is remarkably simple once you learn the process; interpreting it and making it your own is what makes a good artist.

I work with teens and adults primarily. Adults have typically come to me for specific goals: drawing grand kids, pets, landscapes, etc. Teens aged 12-18 are my specialty. It is with great pride that I can say past students of mine have gone to such schools as School of Visual Art, Pratt, Rhode Island School of Design, and Maryland Institute of Contemporary Art, just to name a few. That isn't to toot my own horn, but nurturing a sense of confidence in their ability to tackle both technical and conceptual projects has been my aim since I began teaching in 2009.

With all that said, I look forward to meeting you and working with you. If you are willing to put in the work, I will work with you to reach your goals.

About Erin
My name is Erin Smith,

I am the owner pastry chef and sugar artist behind Sugar Inspired LLC right here in beautiful Boise Idaho. I custom design, bake and create Sculpted 3D character cakes and Wedding cakes, that are truly a bit different then the rest. I have a artistic approach in my work & decorating style. In addition to a professional background in Pastry and cake decorating.

My professional background and experience have lead to positions at our local downtown Bardenay restaurant where I accepted their position as lead Pastry Chef for three years time, creating and designing custom desserts for their locations in Eagle and Boise. I taught pastry assistants and student interns the cake decorating and baking skills needed to master their cake decorating and baking skills. I also produced desserts and Wedding cakes for the
ir B-Side's events. I continued in my path as a Pastry Chef by accepting the Executive Pastry Chef position for the City of Boise's Boise Convention Center. Leading their baking department in catering to large corporate and private events.

I ultimately decided to leave the busy culinary world and focus back on family, where I focus only now on creating custom cakes and teaching cake decorating classes exclusively. This has allowed me to create on a much different scale. These cakes not only look amazing! they taste even better! With all the years of cake decorating, sugar art, assembling incorporated into each Sculpted 3D & Wedding Cake I create.

I'm certain you will learn and master these steps in taking your cake decorating skills up a whole new level in cake decorating and designing. Start creating one-of-a-kind-cake.

Oh my gosh! Erin is AMAZING!! Seriously amazing!!!! I have been decorating cakes for a while took some private lesson through cake instructors through Micheal's and hobby lobby to up my internship skills but wanted to learn more advanced skills then what was offered in Boise, so I searched this site and found Erin with Sugar Inspired in the Boise area YAY!! Anybody who is familiar with the culinary world of cake artists knows who Erin is because of her talents! She is known by so many cake artists around the world so to find her in Boise and schedule a lesson with in her person was truly a dream come true! And she made me feel right at home! Her steps in building custom cakes was so eye opening alone so much the other teachers didn't teach correctly. I am so excited thrilled to learn more and take my skills beyond what I have achieved so far with learning Erin's technics and decorating styles!! As a students of the Boise State I am so grateful to have her here! Thank you Erin!!

About Joseph
I am a commercial and wedding photographer based out of the Philadelphia area. I am a 2006 graduate of the Antonelli Institute of Art and Photography. I have received multiple awards for my work in the commercial, sports and wedding fields. My images have graced the covers of international publications like Sports Illustared and The Blood Horse. As a commercial photographer I have shot for companies such as: Brother, Lenox, Blanco, Hilton and Sotheby’s to name a few.

My career has mainly been centered around the commercial word, meaning, I shoot mostly for companies. My average work week can include shooting anything from products, like printers, bedding or fine china, to capturing an image of a CEO or Board of directors! On the weekends you will often find me hanging out with a bridal party shooting award winning wedding images!

My s
tudents will enjoy my energy, fun loving nature and ability to break down complicated subject matter into simplistic ideas. I will tailor our classes to your specific skill level as well as to what your photography goals are long term.
