Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
Hello prospective students! I've been drawing my whole life, focusing on hyper-realism but leaning now towards a more creative style. I work in many mediums, including watercolor, charcoal, graphite, pen, acrylic, oil, and gouache. I am currently a student at NYU studying costume and scenic design, but I was offered scholarships to SVA, PRATT, PARSONS, and SAIC for fine arts/illustration. I have won over 20 regional, state, and national art awards, including 6 gold keys and 1 silver national medal for the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards. I also sold my art at the Houston Rodeo for $45,000. I teach ages 12 to 100+, whether you are a beginner or advanced artist. I love to teach art, and I have taught several art classes throughout the past couple of years. Though I am young, I do have artistic experience and a love for art that I would love to pass onto anyone who is interested. Thank you so much!

Hey guys! So a little bit about me. I'm currently a student at NYU studying costume and scenic design. I have focused mainly on hyper-realism, but have changed my focus to a more creative platform. I work in all mediums including charcoal, graphite, oil, acrylic, watercolor and gouache. I teach ages 12 and up, all skill levels. I would love to work with you! I also love food, dogs, and case you wondered.

Shayla was a great instructor! She was very helpful in teaching the ones in her class that wanted to learn. My daughter was always proud of the art she created while there!

I have learned so much from Shayla. I didn't think I could draw at all but she's taught me that I can. She's very knowledgeable.
