About Celina B.

I'm a animator and digital artist who loves being creative and expressive through art. I have been teaching STEM and STEAM programs to children, teens, and adults for 4 years. These programs include, 2D/3D animation, computer programming, graphic design, digital drawing, 3D modeling, Photography, Video Production, and 3D printing.

I earned my degree at Boston University in Film and Television with a concentration in Psychology and a minor in Visual Arts. I work at Theory Studios and teach STEAM programs in NY as well as volunteer as a volleyball coach for young girls.

I enjoy watching films, performing stand up comedy, photographing birds, and meeting other creative people!

My experience with this teacher was great! She was very easy to talk to and she was very nice and straight to the point about each of the topics. She also talked about herself and what were my interest and goals that I wanted to get to with her lessons. I just wish that my screen could be shared like hers! So a tip! MAKE SUTE THAT YOU CAN SHARE YOUR SCREEN WITH THE TEACHER BEFORE THE LOSSON STARTS BECAUSE YOU’LL NEED IT... TRUST ME!!!!

Celina was knowledgeable, friendly, and engaging. She took an interest in figuring out what my daughter was familiar with and what next steps would make sense in terms of learning more about animation.

Celina is one of the most encouraging and supportive instructors I've met. She has given me valuable feedback on the color and composition in my photos.

Celina is so patient and so funny. She really makes learning something totally new less intimidating, is flexible, and I learned so much from her! Thanks Celina!

Celina is such an excellent instructor and really helped me deconstruct what I thought I already knew about drawing so I could move forward and really improve.

Really nice! As a complete beginner, Celina was able to walk me through the basics of playing ukulele, a longtime dream. Very patient.
