About Mayra

Private lessons for all ages and currently accepting students!

30 yrs experience, International, Abstract, Contemporary artist based in San Diego CA. Available for eager students of all experience levels. "I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of abstract expressionistic-freestyle techniques”.

I specialize in high quality acrylic-oil-metallic-chalk paints and heavy duty mediums. I typically use medium size to large flat brushes, metal mixing-knives, varnish, resin, silicone, floetrol.

I like to practice my choice of colors on an old canvas or simply on watercolor paper prior being used on a canvas or a wood panel.

My favorite tools to use as color reference are:
Pantone palettes, HGTV, Dwell, House & Homes Magazines, House Paint Color palettes from Home Depot

and imagery found online.

—BEGINNING PAINTERS LESSONS the student enjoys the benefit of a non-competitive environment.
Lessons are designed to teach the fundamentals of color mixing using watercolors, acrylic and oil paints.

—INTERMEDIATE PAINTERS LESSONS help the artist further develop their skills or work on specific areas of weakness.
Lessons are designed to teach the fundamentals of color mixing and variation using watercolors, acrylic and oil paints.

—ADVANCED PAINTERS LESSONS the artist benefits by exploring their own personal style.
Lessons are designed to teach the advanced fundamentals of color mixing and perspective using watercolors, acrylic and oil paints.

I look forward to painting with you!

I love Mayra. She taught me a lot more than I thought in just one class. I have a painting that I will hang on my wall. Never thought one class would do that. She has great personality and great skills.

Mayra was very helpful. She had a challenge with us because we we're weren't sure exactly what we wanted to learn. Mayra worked with us and demonstrated some new techniques and ideas based on where we already were as (very amateur) artists. She was helpful, very encouraging, and easy to work with. Thank you!

About Emily

I've been working professionally as an artist since 2009, making graphics and illustrations for clients and having worked for Disney Research for just over a year. I graduated from Carnegie Mellon University with a Bachelor's in Fine Arts in 2012. I'm currently a freelance artist, but I also love contributing to the art education community by inspiring and instructing anyone who wants to learn.

I specialize in drawing/illustration, digital painting, and 2D hand-drawn frame-by-frame digital animation, mostly in the context of video games (with 2D graphics). Many of my drawing/animation students have been interested in drawing/animating animals, especially furry/anthro memes. I've helped students complete tiny looping animations, creating memes as well as short films.

My hope and mission is to successfully distribute my knowledge,

skills and experience to anyone who wants to acquire them.

I'm capable of a large range of improvements, from goals as hobbyists to more professional goals. I have successfully helped students get admitted into their desired art schools through portfolio preparation, as well as helped artists get their first gigs as freelancers. I can serve as a mentor for an artist's early years as a contractor.

Lessons are taught through Google Hangouts video calls where I always share my screen to clearly show my demonstrations in real time. Students may also share their screens if they are working digitally. If students work on paper, they may take phone pics and message/email them to me during class, or hold up their work on the webcam if it's high enough quality.

Thank you for your interest!

This was my first introduction to animation. Emily was great! She was patient, and very knowledgeable. She taught me how to use my software and showed me different techniques I could do. Planning on taking a couple more classes

About Trudy

I have been taking digital photos since 2001 but started when I first fell in love with
Photoshop. My favorite subject matter is nature but the principles of taking a decent photo will be similar for any subject matter.

I photograph large events and headshots and believe in the importance of a first impression. I learned posing techniques from working for a large national company but apply some of these principles even at events.

While I now shoot with my cell phone too, I am well versed on how to operate a professional camera (Canon) and this is what I will be teaching you.

About Natalia

Hi! My name is Na, short for Natalia. I began drawing when I was 13 years old. I didn’t think was very good at first but I was always excited to run and show my mom when I felt proud of one. I love drawing portraits. It’s my favorite thing! It’s hard but anyone can do it if you take it step by step. I am currently a commission artist that paints and draw portraits for people. I love drawing entertainers because everyone recognizes them and they just think it’s awesome!
I’ve done art show around Dallas, TX where I take my work and hang showcase them and sell them.
Art for me is something that lights me up and keeps me out of my mind to just focus on getting the lines perfect or making sure the colors compliment each other.
I am looking forward to teaching what I have learned in my almost 10 years of experience.

I highly recommend her and can't wait for her upcoming classes in her own studio!"

"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 underst
and 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."
