I teach a variety of subject ranging from art, through cooking and even Photoshop.
I have been teaching painting for over 10 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of acrylic, oil, watercolor and mixed media painting and created their own beautiful masterpieces in landscape, abstract, still life and other subjects! Within the first few lessons, you'll start understanding the elements of art such as light, shadows, perspective etc. and as time goes on, you'll be able to paint like a pro! I love working with students of all experience levels. V

I also teach cooking from scratch with the best ingredients. Be it Asian, Mediterranean, Middle-Eastern cuisine; I teach them all and more. I even teach to bake bread with my own home-grown sourdough starter. So, please join me for a fantastic session and learn some basics or other skills that only chefs know. Once we have cooked a delicious meal, we sit together and enjoy it over a glass of wine or whatever you like. As an option you may take home the remaining portions, usually enough for 3-5 days. But you don't have to. You only pay for the food you eat which is a fraction of a restaurant meal and yet much better.

If you are looking for a Photoshop instructor, search no longer. I have been working with Photoshop for over 10 years and can teach most applications but prefer to teach it to photographers of all levels. Simple or complex image processing, layers, composites, beauty editing etc. I demystify them for you so that you can print or share your images that shine.

Having never taken a watercolor lesson before, I did not know where to begin. Renata showed patience, expertise, and humor as she helped me acquire the materials I needed and explained the basic procedures. Her demonstrations and personal assistance were exceptional. I highly recommend her as an outstanding instructor.

I have had the pleasure of having an art class with Renata Sharman for the last few months. I have learned so much from her instructions and her demonstrations. She is extremely knowledgeable about art and a gifted teacher. She also teaches cooking classes and is a talented photographer. I would highly recommend her to anyone who desires to improve his/her painting skills and enjoy it at the same time. Renata is delightful. A side note – Renata speaks 7 languages!
