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.
