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 since 2014. 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 also received my teaching certification from NYSED and Master's degree in teaching from RELAY GSE. I work as a full time high school STEAM teacher and volunteer with nonprofit organizations in my spare time.

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

My son has really enjoyed his art lessons Celina. Having a 15 year old boy put down his gaming controller to enthusiastically attend these lessons is about the best compliment I can give. He seems to be increasing his confidence in his art and sees progress in his abilities. Thanks Celina!

Celina did a great job teaching my 9 year old how to draw basic faces after just one lesson using Procreate. My daughter was very pleased and encouraged and I will he signing up for additional lessons as a result. Thanks!

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 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.
