About Jonathan "JC"

Hello! Bonjour!
I believe the best way to teach is to make it simple and fun! I am patient and dedicated to your success.
-------- QUALITY FIRST --------
Everybody wants the best. I believe quality is the most important. I also believe each person is unique, therefore each student should have tailored lessons.
-------- HAPPY TEACHING --------
Teaching should be a positive and fun experience. I believe in a personalized and genuine approach. In my experience the benefits are enormous: we save a lot of time, energy, and since it is way more suited to the student, we are more efficient = happy! Hopefully Wisdom will come out of this process. All we need is a little support to all grow together.

-------- PHOTOGRAPHY --------
Photography has been my full-time job since 2003. I am a 34-year-old French-American man living and working

in Minneapolis Minnesota. I have +16 years of expertise as a professional photographer. Recent clients include Porsche Minneapolis, Taste of the NFL, Medal of Honor Convention Twin Cities, and Women's Leadership Trust Forum. I will be your teacher today.

-------- WHY THE MOVE TO THE USA? --------
I am a husband and step-father who moved to Minnesota in 2015 to live with the wife Sophia and 2 kids: Blake and Samara, 16 and 14. They all are musicians or artists.

-------- MY FRENCH HERITAGE --------
From 1995 to 2002 I primarily I studied French literature, English literature, and German, and even Russian for 3 years when I was in high school in France.

I was born in France so the language is my mother's tongue. My parents are Monique and Alain, typical French names. I have an older brother (Frédéric) and a younger sister (Johanna) who lives in Québec, Canada now. I do not practice German and Russian at the moment but I am a specialist of French language. If you want to test my French here I am!

-------- LE TEST FRANÇAIS: BIEN, OU QUOI ? --------
Comme on dit en français: "quand on me cherche on me trouve !" Le français, on l'appelle aussi la langue de Molière par opposition à l'anglais qui est la langue de Shakespeare.
Le français c'est facile car il suffit de pratiquer souvent avec un bon prof' qui sait ce qu'il fait. Et voilà les amis c'est comme ça qu'on doit bien faire les choses en bonne et due forme ! Y'a pas d'secret vous pigez le truc on quoi? Si tu es d'accord dis-moi oui oui hoche de la tête mon ami ! Alors, tranquille le chat? T'inquiète biquette ? Ça roule ma poule ?

-------- MY PASSION FOR SOCIAL WORK --------
In 2015, before I moved to the USA, I was the President of nonprofit organization Association Sunyoga France, French branch of the main NPO from India called UNIVERSAL PEACE CENTRE, for scientific and spiritual research, agriculture, clothing, taking care of orphans and elderly people, with a health center and an education center.

Our 7 humanitarian programs focus on creating a Self-Dependent and Sustainable Global Family Home University. As we speak, we have people from +14 countries working together towards that goal.

I know the organization well since I have been working with them since 2012 in France, India, Serbia, and now in the USA!
I am now working on creating the American branch of the association. It is called Universal Peace Centre • SUNYOGA AMERICA.

-------- GLORIOUS CONCLUSION ABOUT TEACHING --------
Teaching is a big responsibility. Parents and teachers, it is our duty to teach the best. Let's do our best together. Thank you for your trust and friendship.

Wishing us all best success, peaceful, blissful, healthy, and enlightened life.
Merci! Gratitude.

About Daniel

I love people! I enjoy teaching and training, listening and learning, meeting new people and discovering new things. As a Creative Director south of Nashville, I make time to work with children and adults, teaching drawing, photography, Adobe Creative Suite and other creative computer skills. I also coach soccer in Nolensville, TN. My own art reflects a passion for people, as I am primarily a portrait artist in photography as well as with pencil, pen and ink, and watercolor. I started with teaching art classes in High school, then as part of wilderness trips in the white mountains, teaching creative survival skills. I work often with youth athletics and skills training, with the children in my church, and all ages as a mentor, tutor, and coach outside of regular business hours... Lately I have been helping photographers and models build

their brand identity with pictures. - - What are your creative needs?

About Cara

I am an artist and art teacher with 12 years of experience in schools. I love teaching students at my studio and enjoy teaching students how to create work that lie within their areas of interest. I'm always game for a change of the plan or for projects to take a turn in a different direction. These are the times that provide the most learning!

I can teach students of all ages and am able to instruct on a variety of art topics. My personal favorite media are: acrylic paint, colored pencil, and watercolor pencil.

I look forward to working with you to make artwork that interests you!

About Amanda

[ About Me ]
Growing up, Amanda C. always had her interests peaked when it came to anything involving design. From colors, shapes, and patterns to drafting, sketching, and final products; it’s definitely grown to be a passion. She has always approached the world with creativity to incorporate a way to study and create a more hands-on environment for a more in-depth learning experience.

[ Calligraphy ] Online Classroom

*For clarification, I teach the following: Basic Cursive, Copperplate-style Calligraphy, Hand-lettering, and Ways to Improve Your Penmanship.*

All forms of art are built from a solid foundation. That's what I primarily focus on when it comes to teaching varying ages with varying levels. My mission is to teach many different techniques and exercises for students to be comfortable and confident with their writing.

Classroom Policy ]

It would be great to get a message 24 hours in advance or even an hour in advance before the lesson. If you forget, I have no penalties, but make sure to message me to reschedule or completely cancel your lesson! :)

About Eileen

Hello! I moved to Brooklyn fifteen years ago to get my MFA at Pratt Institute; I've been a professional fine artist for my entire adult life and have shown my work extensively in and around New York. I have taught traditional oil painting at local ateliers and I also teach plein air workshops in the Hudson Valley through the Artist’s Workshop Association. In 2018 I was invited by the US Department of State to teach a series of oil painting workshops at an art college in Algiers, Algeria, because one of my paintings hangs in the Ambassador's Residence there. It was an amazing experience! I love talking about painting and drawing and demonstrating what I've learned. For more info, pics, and demonstrations, you can check out my IG (@eileen_murphy_studio) or my website (eileenmurphy.net).

For both drawing and painting, I lead my students thr

ough a series of exercises that teach the fundamentals of observation and execution. My own work is very realistic, so I have the technical skills to demonstrate to students how to reach the goals they want, whether or not they want the results to be exactly true to life. A lot of my students end up making more expressionist work which is great! And some others are interested in making very traditional paintings.

Additional note: I provide materials for beginning painters so that you don’t have to invest in paint and brushes until you know for sure that you want to continue with it. I think that makes it easier for people to get started.

I also teach small group lessons (2-3 people) so message me for that pricing if you have a few pals you want to bring with you!

Super nice and helpful ! So interesting and so much fun ! I’m looking forward to the next lesson , and ultimately learning to paint in oils with Eileen’s guidance !

Eileen has been great to work with online, therecreally are no painting teachers in my area who have the technical knowledge to help me out so I was really stuck. We only started recently but I’m learning so much faster now.
June 25, 2019
Eduardo
I’ve been working with Eileen online for awhile now and it’s been really great. I’ve learned so much from her techniques and her tips about my palette and brushes. I’ve learned a lot just by watching but her comments to me have really helped my painting progress much faster.

About Viktoriia

I am a college student, Russian & Ukrainian are my native languages. I will show my students easier ways to learn these interesting languages.

For a student without any experience we will start with the alphabet, followed by simple words and phrases. We will continue at a pace that the student is comfortable with. For an advanced learner we will figure out your level of knowledge and then jump into new useful material.

Excellent instructor. She knows her subject thoroughly and is patient helping me pronounce words correctly. Also, she came prepared for our first session and had a game plan for presenting information. I think she'll be a big help to me.

"Isabela is great. As a student, I was challenged by this first lesson. She used great tools for the lesson such as cotton balls and q-tips. It was great n
ot to be asked to buy new brushes or special paint. Be aware that she is a gentle person, but she works fast. No paint is going to dry on her canvas before she is done.!"

Sue
"My 12 year old daughter has had a love for illustration her whole life and It was hard to find an art teacher that focused on her type of drawing. We fi
nally found Ms. Emily!! She and I love her!! She has not only helped my daughter become a better illustrator, she has helped her overcome some of her anxieties. She is kind and helpful without judging but will push you to create a piece that you will feel proud of. We just think she’s wonderful!!"
