Have you always wanted to be a fashion designer but have trouble getting your ideas on paper? Not to worry! I specialize in figure drawing and rendering, and have taught at the university level. I can teach pencil, charcoal, pastels, art markers, and watercolor. Even if you've never drawn before or you're not sure if you can draw people, I will make sure you leave feeling great about what you've created!
About Sarah L.

*Please note: If you are interested in online classes they will take place over Skype, Zoom, or FaceTime, not TakeLessons Classroom (for technological reasons)* Hello, and thank you for visiting my page! I have been an artist for my whole life and I am passionate about sharing my love of creativity with others. I earned an MFA in Costume Design from UCLA in 2007 and have been a freelance costume designer, college professor, photographer, illustrator, jewelry designer, and private fine arts instructor. As much as I love to create, what I really love is to help somebody learn to do something they love and create something they can be proud of! I am happy teaching all ages, and I specialize in helping each student find his, her, or their unique vision. I can teach sewing by hand and on a machine, including how to read and understand the instructions in commercial patterns. Bring your project and I'll help you make it happen! I am highly skilled at teaching life drawing, as well as marker rendering and watercolor fashion illustration. Photography is my other passion, and I look forward to helping you understand how to use a camera's many features, and your eye, to create art.

I enjoy taking lessons with Sarah. As a beginner, she takes the time to explain every detail regarding the photography and the use of my camera. I learn so much after a few lessons.

It can be a challenge to demonstrate online versus being in person. But Sarah effectively showed me - and more - to jumpstart me. I'll be back!

She was amazing. I ask her a lot of questions and she was so sweet to answer without making me feel dumb. I love her!
