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!

Review from an Aspiring Game Developer wanting to learn how to do placeholder art and animations I can use to communicate with an artist. I'm a programmer and IT infrastructure guy by trade and I was starting from zero learning how to draw and animate. I couldn't even draw stick figures well. She met me at my skill level and communicated ideas and skills at that skill level, which was zero. I never felt like she was talking over my head. During my first lesson with Celina I learned how to draw stick figures in poses that actually looked like the reference images she showed, and I animated a stick figure jumping. Not only that but she gave me helpful websites for drawing, animating and reference images. She not only taught me how to draw but also how to teach myself how to draw. Got exactly what I wanted, Great Teacher, Cool Person, 10/10 will come back again.
Ready for more!
First lesson was great! Already learning so much and can’t wait to do more. Celina is very knowledgeable and very clearly, an experienced teacher.
