I am a working artist and have been drawing and painting for more than 9 years now. I currently teach drawing the human figure with live models for groups both at my studio and other locations. I have trained at Glassell School of Houston, Calgary Academy of Art, Atelier Souza Rodriguez. I enjoy teaching and I want to share my knowledge and experience with students interested in learning drawing with pencils, charcoal, pen and ink, conte pencils, etc. I teach private drawing lessons for beginners and intermediate students and help advanced students to gain drawing mastery.

Very easy to understand and is SUPER helpful. I’m an 8th grader taking Spanish 1 from home during the pandemic. She has lowered my stress level quite a bit and I’m looking forward to my next lesson.

Hilda is so smart! She impresses me more and more every lesson! I'm having fun learning with her. I am finding that even in my free time I'm listening or reading something in spanish. I love this language.

I teach all techniques of oil painting, from painting fast and loose to the style of the old masters'. I work with my students to identify their painting goals (I teach all levels and do not require any prior artistic experience!) and create a custom lesson plan to help develop their painting skillset. I teach the very basics of how to mix paints all the way to more complex portfolio reviews and critiques of painting concepts. I believe anyone can learn to paint when given the right tools! Let's get painting.

About Tori

I am a professional artist and musician in Chattanooga, TN! I have been teaching art and music for six years in California and Tennessee. I have been painting since I was big enough to hold a paintbrush and playing the harp for over 15 years. I have a degree from Stanford University in Art Practice

I can't recommend lessons with Tori highly enough!

I've been obsessed with oil painting, and every kind of 2D visual art, for as long as I can remember, but I never really believed in myself to do it until I worked with Tori.

My drawing, painting, and even my 3D work progressed more, and more quickly, working with Tori than they had in years

Thank you Tori!!!!
Lisa
My three boys (ages 11-15) loved working with Tori. We still have the block print-making pieces, paintings and charcoal drawings displayed in our kitchen. Their favorite project was creating plaster casts of their own faces. Tori is very thoughtful, patient and has a great zen energy. I highly recommend Tori!

Hey everyone! I hope everyone is doing well during this time of isolation and social distancing.

My name is Tyler Lockett, and I'm a professional illustrator with over 15 years of experience in design, illustration, and concept art for video games. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in illustration from Parsons School of Design in New York City.

I have done conceptual art for high profile game titles such as "Neverwinter Nights", "American Mcgee's Grimm!", and I was a senior concept artist on "Alice; Madness Returns." for Xbox360. I'm currently hard at work on my first Illustrated novel, which will have over 200 illustrations, and will be available at the end of the year.

My lessons are completely flexible, and adaptable to your personal goals. However, here are my recommendations.

For BEGINNERS I recommend building up your foundation skills; shapes, silhouettes, values, composition, lighting, color, line work, texture, etc. We could pick subject matter that you ...

I really enjoyed lessons with Emilie! She is well organized and has a clear lesson plan for each session, with follow up homework and exercises. I learned so much about technique and the "how to" of drawing. Everything she put together was appropriate for my level and included exercises that challenged me to improve. I could tell Emilie is well trained and skilled at drawing. She is also very nice and I felt relaxed and comfortable with her. Her studio is warm and inviting. Overall it was a great experience and I am looking forward to taking some additional lessons with Emilie!
Ava C.
So happy to have found Emilie! I work for a family with a four year old child who is extremely engaged in art and we wanted to find private lessons for her. Emilie has been extremely accommodating and very intentional in making sure we were ready for our first lesson. Will be scheduling more lessons and look forward to her being apart of my charges explorative learning!

I teach the fundamental basis for all representational painting. From still life to portraits and the figure leading up to advanced genre or multi-figure pictures. I have been drawing and painting my whole life and love to teach drawing and painting to anyone who wants to learn. Visual communication skills are a foundation for many forms of problem solving skills. These skills all lead to a keen sense of awareness of ones self and environment.

About Preston

I have hundreds of hours teaching experience in many subjects spaning from sports chess and the arts. I have won numerous awards for my ability to communicate the detailed aspects of complicated intricate subject matter. I have been verified to teach all ages and have numerous background checks est

Preston is a very nice coach. I was a beginner with zero experience before. After five lessons, I gained solid basic skills and feel more comfortable to rally. I feel growing by leaps and bounces.

He is very sharp about identifying the problem and then training accordingly. He is also kind and very patient to guide

"I wish I could give Sandra TEN stars; five are not enough. She's the best! She helped me see my pictures, and the world, in new ways. I was lucky enough to see her work with a variety of photographers, from students just starting out, to professionals who had been working in the field for years. They all had great things to say about her, and how she showed them how to improve their portfolios. Many of them went on to win contests thanks to her teaching. If you want a teacher that is easily approachable and very accessible, has a wonderful sense of humor, and will take you and your photos to a new level, do yourself a favor and contact Sandra. You'll be amazed!"

"I was a beginner and really excited to learn as much as I could about painting. Eileen started me with the very basics of setting up a palette, then we moved on to monochrome paintings, and then paintings with a full palette. She taught me the process of making a painting step by step was what I really wanted to learn. Her teaching style was a fit for me because she is both patient and skillful. She helped to bring out the artist in me. I am so grateful for what I learned and have taken that knowledge and continue to grow as an artist in my spare time. What also love is that Eileen has made herself available right me and I plan to take more lessons with her soon!"

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."
