About Roya M.
My name is Roya. I am a professional artist and educator, and I’m a professor in painting and drawing.It would be my pleasure to teach you painting or drawing. Over the last 10 years, I have taught painting and drawing, including figure drawing and painting courses in universities and colleges.
I’m using 2 different teaching strategy based on my students interest.
In the first plan, I start to teach from basic to advanced techniques; my goal at the beginning stage is to provide students with enough skills and technique that they can skillfully begin making art from 3- dimensional sources, not just copying from other arts.
In the second path, I start teaching any subject or technique that my student prefer like landscape, portrait, pour painting, abstract, etc.
I teach a variety of technique, medium and styles from realistic to abstract, or any style that you prefer.

Roya is a kind, patient teacher. My daughter learned a couple new spray painting skills which will certainly help with her high school project. Thank you!
Roya is a fabulous art instructor. She patient and encouraging. She is a pleasure to work with
The best art teacher I've had the privilege to learn from. :)
Roya is an incredible art teacher. I am absolutely amazed at the progress my son has made under her instruction in only a few sessions. Her classes are top notch. If you want to learn from a true master who takes the time to teach real technique, take lessons with Roya!Show More
I had a great abstract painting session with Roya. She had some sample pictues of the abstract art style I like. She gave me a bit of background about what it entails. I felt comfortable getting started and she gave me the direction I was looking for. Thanks!!!
Felt very successful
Roya is a wonderfully energetic, hands on art teacher, who has moved my oil painting from mundane to lively & exciting. My lessons with Roya are such a pleasure. The lessons are geared toward helping me grow in areas I expressed a need for, as well as filling in weaknesses which her expertise recognizes need working on.Show More
Great teacher!! She knows what she's talking about and teaches at your own pace.
Roya is very personable, very patient, and very encouraging. She listens to what I want to accomplish and works with me to try to help me accomplish that. I highly recommend her. I am very pleased with her classes. She has a nice set up and it is a good environment to learn in.Show More
After viewing some of my paintings she was spot on identifying bad habits and offered many ways to improve. She is immensely skilled as a diagnostician. She presented her points clearly and fully without being condescending. Very much worth the investment. Can’t wait for the next lesson. Due warning. She can assign homework.Show More
I learned to paint from real objects and landscape instead of copying from a picture and I love it.
She is one the most heartfelt, knowledgeable teacher I've ever had! I have never been much of an artist but I've always had passion for it. She has challenged me, and pushed me to be a better artist than I have ever thought possible!
The best detail oriented, caring teacher I ever had.
