About Sylvia
Hello! My name is Sylvia and I'm here to help you learn a new skill or master it to a new level! I've been teaching private lessons since 2001 and am currently available to teach lessons at your home, at the public library, and online. I have loved helping my students with education classes such as mathematics, english, science, dancing salsa and cha cha, painting, illustrating fashion, sewing, computer coding, playing the violin, to personal training.

I have always had many interests and luckily I worked hard at them with great teachers to achieve great levels. I went to University of New South Wales and earned a degree in Software Engineering in 2003, and also Sydney TAFE to earn a Fashion Design degree in 2009.

I'm a friendly and understanding person and my teaching style is patient, motivating, and positive. I believe everyone
can achieve what they want with the right mindset and the right opportunity. My aim is to help you reach your goals and make you feel accomplished!

Sylvia was excellent! I came to her class with very little knowledge of the subject but she was patient and taught me step by step on the topics I wanna learn. She was very knowledgeable of Adobe software, professional and very understanding of my schedule. I am confident now on using the program after our classes. I highly recommend her! Thanks Sylvia!

About Nick
My name is Nick and I am a freelance photographer located in Tyngsborough, Massachusetts. I am new to the TakeLessons platform but have many years of experience as a photographer and photography teacher.

I specialize in travel, fine art and sports action photography. I am a life-long photographer having worked for a weekly newspaper, a motorcycle racing magazine, as a wedding and event photographer, and as a sports photographer. Over the last 15 years I have photographed local town events, Middle and High School sports, college football, fund-raising events for non-profit organizations, motorcycle racing, bicycle racing, running road races, Rock ‘n Roll bands, and high school senior portraits. I am now focusing most of my time traveling around the world and making and exhibiting my photographs of the local landscapes and people. Many o
f my images have been published in newspapers, on various websites, and exhibited in many art galleries.

I enjoy teaching students how to "make" photographs, drawing from the skills and techniques that I have learned from my real-world experiences as a photographer. My students learn how to use their camera as an expression of their artistic vision. They will learn all aspects of workflow including research and preparation, camera settings, composition, post-processing, printing, and framing. The goal is for each student to create images that they would be proud to exhibit or display on their wall at home.

Whether you are a beginner or an experienced photographer, please contact me for further information, to discuss your goals and objectives for making pictures, or to schedule a session. I offer both in person and remote lessons. Thank you.

Nick was awesome. Helped me choose the proper camera settings to optimize conditions and maximize the quality of the image. Educated me on controlling settings for various light conditions and depth of field. Very helpful and well worth the drive. I will definitely call on him again to fine tune what I've learned once I have a chance to practice.

Nick is patient, knowledgeable, and a great photography instructor. I've learned more from him in a couple of lessons than I've learned from a couple of books I've been using to try and learn on my own. Well-worth the time and cost for personal instruction. Highly recommend.

About Joey
Hello Artist-in-Progress,

We are all artists-in-progress because, no matter how good we are, we can always get better!

I'm Mr. Joey and I love art and I love teaching art! I am a graduate of The Art Institute and an artist and animator that creates art in pencil, charcoal, pastel, watercolor, and digital mediums.

I recommend that classes are *at least* 1.5 hours (and I really recommend 2 hours!) because that's what's needed to critique homework assignments, warmup, and do the work for the class, and not be rushed.

Classes I teach are:

• Drawing Fundamentals
• Advanced Drawing
• People and Anatomy
• Portrait Drawing
• Cartoon Characters for Animation
• Character Design
• 2D Animation
• Digital Painting in Photoshop
• Digital Animation

Please view samples of my work and contact me with any questions you may hav
e.

I look forward to helping you develop your art skills and express your creativity!

Mr. Joey

About Debbie
Hi! I am so excited to bring the art of tangling to you! I am a Certified Zentangle®️ Teacher and love teaching kids to silver-seniors 🌞. I retired from Occupational Therapy after 25 years and decided to explore different art forms. I discovered tangling and became addicted! It is so much fun, and it has lots of benefits, too. Studies are showing that it truly has a zen-like quality in helping people with anxiety, pain management, stress reduction, increased handwriting and fine motor coordination as well as attention to detail and concentration. The beauty of this is that you do not need to be an "artist" to enjoy it....if you can write I, C, S, and O you can do it....really!

I am looking forward to meeting you and sharing this amazing art form.

Many blessings!!

About Donia
I am a retired actress and vocal enthusiast. I have retired from going to auditions, and performing paid gigs after I moved to Flagstaff to earn my degree in Social Work. I have spent my whole life mastering acting and vocals. I have been in the acting/modeling business since I was a toddler and was with an agency for some time. I have been in several commericals and films and countless musical productions. I also was in a music production program called CMAS for two years. I have eight plus years of vocal training. I am classically trained and trained in performing musical numbers. As for acting I have twelve years of experience and was in the advanced acting class at Dearing Studio for two years.

Voice students can expect to improve their range weekly. To learn how to read music. Each voice is unqiue and special and I will aslo teach t
hem the proper skills and techiqunes that prevent vocal nodules.

Acting students can expect to recieve at least one new scene each week or until they have mastered the scene they have given. As well as how to prepare headshots and resume.

I have experience teaching students of all ages even adults. I want to make sure I cater to each individual preferred way of learning. I want to make sure my students are allowed to be creative and love to make each lesson fun! I believe everyone learns differently. I also have experience in working with children with special needs.

About Anthony
I’ve been painting with oils for almost three decades, and drawing for as long as I can remember. I’ve been a full time fine artist for over a decade now. I’ve been doing guest demos and teaching private and group lessons for many years, for various subject matter and age groups.

After graduating from Tyler School of Art at Temple University with a major in Painting, I had jobs making signs by hand, doing T-shirt designs, in a graphic design studio with clients like M&M Mars, Claritin and Revlon. As a freelance artist, I did logos, movie poster illustration, album art and packaging design, and I even scored and created sound effects for some short films. Yes, I play keyboard as well.

For my fine art, I’ve worked in many different mediums including watercolor, acrylics, digital, ceramics, sculpture, metal casting and photography, but pa
inting with oils and drawing are my most preferred ways of creating. I’ve painted and drawn many different kinds of subjects, but the figure is my favorite. I have worked from photo reference and from life (something right in front of me) as well as from my imagination; the range of styles that I have used have gone from photorealism all the way to cartoons. I am proficient in Photoshop, which I currently use often to create composite images as reference for my paintings. My paintings have been displayed in many shows across the country, and have sold internationally.
