- Teaches students:
- Ages 15+ and special needs
- Teaching since:
- April 2014
Lesson will be divided into two parts:
First part will be a a brief introduction to some basic elements in the art of drawing and painting.
Second part will be in practice, where the fun begins! Students try to apply what they learn to their art!
Nothing is more satisfying than hearing my students go home with some knowledge they don't know know before. Maybe a new idea, a new way of thinking, new perspective at perceiving.
I should try my very best effort to live up to the standards.

Manhei is a great guy, completely dedicated to his art, and a patient, kind instructor. Definitely overqualified for the job, but with an excellent attitude and optimistic outlook.
