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 was wonderful with my 11 year old granddaughter who loves anime. Even though anime is not what she normally teaches, she came up with fun lessons which my granddaughter enjoyed. She is very dedicated and an exceptional teacher. So glad I found her!

She’s very good at explaining and showing things step by step. I can easily understand what she is showing me and how to draw it out.

Roya is fantastic. Could not ask for a better instructor. Very good and caring. She has helped me with water colors, oils, and acrylics. I am blessed to have found such a wonderful artist, instructor, and friend.

Roya has been a wonderful teacher for my 11 year old. She is patient and encouraging and so warm and helpful. My daughter is learning about shading and proportion, and starting to branch out of her comfort zone. Highly Recommend!

Excellent painting class and great teacher !
If you consider doing a painting class, I highly recommend Roya Mansourkhani. She is an amazing painter and an encouraging teacher with a lot of patience. I learned loads of new techniques and created paintings I was pleased with.

Roya is not only a resourceful and patient teacher and master of her art which makes for heretofore unbelievable results but she also has made learning FUN for me again! To truly trust somebody to guide me through the process while the skills are being "saved in my system" is a totally new experience. I am certain that she can work and get great results with anybody, while having FUN! :-)
So I can only recommend her most warmly!

If you’re looking for a professional, patient and kind art instructor for you or your kids, I highly recommend you to contact her. Thank you Sheida for all your efforts, I learned a lot from you.

Roya is an excellent teacher. She has been my art tutor since the time I was a teenager (and now I am in my 30s). She is patient, kind, and creative in her pedagogy methods: she finds multiple ways to explain the same concepts and techniques so it will stay with you. She is also an extremely knowledgeable art historian, having her as a teacher is like having a live encyclopedia. I am so happy to have found her as my art tutor and my friend.

I didn’t expect to learn that much from an online lesson. She is amazing and puts immense amount in preparation for sessions by providing videos , demos to give me ideas and incentives for learning . I never thought some one can portray concepts so well on line .

Great teacher. Very experienced and my 12-year old daughter learned a lot.

I've taken private lessons in the past, some were good, some not so good. I've always felt that other instructors followed a very generic blueprint during their private lessons. With Roya, I've never felt that way. The lessons are designed in a way that I felt as if I'm progressing as a artist. Do yourself a favor, and sign up. You will not regret it. :)

Today I had my first lesson with Roya. She is very patient and fun to learn with - despite my initial nervousness I got so many insights, and am looking forward to my next lessons. :-)

Great instructor who has shown me how to fully take advantage of the medium of charcoal during my lesson.

Roya is an excellent instructor for adults just starting out or getting back into art. While my interest was only in sketching, she continually challenges me and now I’m enjoying working with charcoal and pastels. Her patience with me is helping me learn to be patient in my drawing.

She will open the gates of a new world to you, a world of art. You will view things differently and create your own world of art.

Roya is a great teacher and very knowledgeable. I have taken two classes thus far and look forward to continuing to learn from her. She is supportive and encouraging and really wants to help me tap into finding my true artist.

Roya is Amazing!!!! The first time I went to Roya, she asked me what exactly I wanted to learn, and really tailored my lessons to encompass all my interests and things that were important to me. She is patient, sweet, and THE BEST teacher I have ever had (that's a lot coming from an art major).

I have changed many private teachers in the last few years, and ever since I found Roya, I couldn't imagine having anyone else teach me. She is truly a golden treasure.

I have seen her teach to people of all levels, and she has been incredible with every single one of them. No matter your level, she will teach you what you want to learn.

Roya is an amazing teacher! I have no artistic talent but she was able to teach even me to draw. She’s patient kind and thoughtful and will sit with you until you have mastered everything you need to know.

Roya was very helpful and taught many new techniques that will easily be applied on my own. Would definitely recommend lessons with Roya.

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 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!

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!!!

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.

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.

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.

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!
