I have been a professional calligrapher for 7 years and have been teaching calligraphy for 5 years. During that time, I have provided services for over 250 weddings and special events.
Not only will you build a strong foundation for your calligraphy skills through our lessons together, but we can also discuss how to start and grow your own calligraphy business in advanced lessons.
In the beginner lessons, will go over the very basics, including supplies, dipping the pen in ink, pressure and flow, and basic letter forms. We will keep things as simple as possible as you learn to hold and maneuver the calligraphy pen.
In continued and more advanced lessons, we will add to your existing knowledge and skill level by working on different calligraphy styles, mediums, and supplies together.
With every one on one session together, the lessons will be catered to your skill level and your specific area of interest as these will change as you continue to practice on your own. I'm excited to ...

About Betsy

After spending most of my childhood dreaming about becoming an artist, I grew up, went to school, got married, had babies, and became a...(drumroll)...nurse. While nursing was fulfilling in many ways, a part of me always felt that there was something else that I should be doing. The feeling that I'

He knows how to teach, but he taught from his iPad, iPhone, in his car. I kept asking him how to draw, and he kept showing me from his iPad. This didn't translate to a good experience. If he wants to teach, he needs to do it NOT from his car.

As an experienced teacher I have worked with all ages and in various settings. I am excited to get to know you and help you become the best version of you. I believe in you and believe you can and you will.

Want kind of artist you desire to me is of the highest priority to me. I am interested in seeing you develop the skill set and style you desire. If you desire to paint realism, then I will help you to develop those skills, if you it is impressionism, abstract, etc, let's develop those skills.

Additionally, what kind of voice do you want? What message do you want to release? This is something I would love to help develop with you.

I taught elementary art for several years, have taught adult classes for a couple of years and have helped to develop college students skill sets. I am positive, joyful and will celebrate you.

All artists need to learn the basic fundamentals of drawing. I'll show you how to sketch ideas using reference imagery in pencil, focus on composition, form, light, shading, and more. As you progress we can introduce more mediums such as ink pens, alcohol markers, India ink, or colored pencils. I'm also happy to teach digital drawing, using various techniques to sketch and develop crisp linearts.

My drawing specialties are people, animals, and nature landscape scenery, so if any of these things interest you, let's get drawing!

About Emily

Greetings! Do you love to draw or paint either digitally or with traditional mediums? Do you or your kids love cartoons, anime/manga, or comics? How about figure drawing, or lovely nature landscapes? Drawing animals perhaps? How about portraits? Well, if you answered 'yes!' to any of these, then I'

Emily works with my son developing his drawing skills before he leaves for college to study digital animation. He really needed to work on illustration skills and Emily has been amazing! I can’t believe how quickly his skills are improving!! But more importantly to me is that my son enjoys the lessons. He is very comfortable working with Emily and his confidence has grown in the process! I can not speak highly enough about Emily as a teacher!! She has a very calm and supportive approach which is perfect for my son. My son does not drive so it is really convenient that she is willing to travel to my house for lessons!

My daughter first met Emily through a summer camp that she participated in. She came home excited and told me that we HAD TO take lessons from her! She has been taking drawing lessons from Emily for the past year and has grown so much in skill! Emily is a patient, kind and caring teacher. She really has a wonderful way of connecting with her students and is supportive of their art style. I would highly recommend Emily!

"Took my daughter to Mrs Deepali for our first class in Painting and Drawing, with curiosity to see how she'd teach a 9 year old. Was baffled to see teh results.

My daughter has started recurring lessons with this teacher.

I like her patience, and her result oriented skills."
