Want to discover hidden potential in your creative ability? Or perhaps understand the basics, or important fundamentals of crafting visual representations from life? My experience as self-taught and formal education as an artist has given me the privelage to pass down what my grandfather and professors has taught me. Now I would love to share and instruct a wide range of drawing and illustration techniques from simple still life to the complexity of the human body, as well as cartoons and anime. Shoot me a message if you want to get started!

Honestly, I can teach drawing at any level. My objective is for the student to improve and work towards their desired achievements -- whether it's just to get better at drawing, work towards making a masterpiece, or putting together a portfolio to get into their desired art school.

In drawing, I've worked primarily in Pencil, Pen, & Digital.

I've been drawing since I was 7, and have worked for 1000's of clients as a freelance artist.

Looking to merge art and growth? I have been teaching emotional intelligence (aka EQ) classes all over Alberta and BC for the last 3 years from ages 5 - 95. There are lots of painting classes out there, but very few about healing through art.

What is Emotional Intelligence? EQ is an umbrella term for how we relate to ourselves and to others. Self awareness, self management, social awareness and relationship management are key factors to having a high EQ.

Even though these skills are crucial in any community or society, we are often never taught these concepts. Why? Because emotions are greatly understudied. Emotions are messy. They are unpredictable. They hinder left brain thinking that Western culture prides itself on. However, without these vitally important competencies, we are left wondering why we didn't get that job, why we are fighting with loved ones, why we seemingly can't stick to our work out plans and why our world is in a very critical state

About Andrea

Welcome! thanks for taking a moment to scroll. I have taught classes all around Alberta and BC and I teach traditional drawing and painting. Currently, I am most excited to teach 'painting With Purpose: Emotional intelligence Through Art' classes. They are a series of three classes called Connect W

I attended one of Andrea’s ‘Emotional Intelligence Through Art’ workshops about a year ago, and it’s been one my of favorite tools for creative expression since then. Like Bob Ross, Andrea has a knack for making art accessible to everyone, and holds a space where everyone feels like an artist. Her facilitation style weaves together both guidance and independence for the artist, in which I felt safe and inspired to paint my deepest emotions. It was pure joy and connection getting to be a part of this experience!

I attended ‘Painting with a Purpose’ with my daughter. Andrea was super great at making color and expression with color accessible to all ages and personality types. She was thorough with her instructions and easy to listen to and learn from. I would definitely recommend her class!

Photography is a big part of our lives these days. It's a modern way of storytelling. Let me help you tell your story better. From Beginner to Advance, I cater the lessons to your needs.

A lifelong student of Photography myself, I have made my living as a professional Photographer for nearly 10 years. In addition to Shooting I have been teaching and helping others hone their craft for the past 4 years.

Many people want instant results but photography is a process. Despite the experience level of the photographer my goal is teach something new. Be it a concept or technique at the end of the session you will be one step closer to your goals.

The session doesn't end at the end of the hour. I provide e-mail support for questions pertaining to the discussed subject matter. I do assign homework and or conduct practical lessons so I also provide feedback and critique for photographs.

I use Lightroom and Photoshop for post processing and I am able to provide ...

About Mark Onewolf

I began photographing family events at the age of 8 years old. I was always fascinated with how things work and the camera was no exception. I learned to shoot with Film cameras. First with my Dad's Pentax and when I was employed I purchased my own. During my time in the Navy and Army I becam

Mark is a thoroughly knowledgeable, patient and encouraging instructor. I just completed a series of lessons with him to learn the basic elements of my new camera and settings so that I can go beyond the auto settings before embarking on a trip to Peru. I couldn't be happier with what Mark taught me. In addition to the basics of aperture, shutter and program auto modes, he provided very practical information on things like tripods, storage, programs and apps. I can't wait to take more lessons from Mark when I return from Peru!

Mark has taught me a lot of lessons in photography. Very knowledgeable in a broad range of disciplines (i.e. long exposures, head shots, weddings, street, editing, portraiture, product, and more). Covering so many categories of photography I feel gives him the ability to answer many questions that a specialized niche photographer would lack. I am a photographer and I get paid gigs, that's how good Mark is. I received my ROI 100x over. Highly recommended.

Just had a photography lesson with Mark last night. He was great. He explained everything in a clear and concise manner that I could easily understand. He also listened to what I wanted to topics that I wanted to learn and tailored his presentation to cover those topics. Thanks, Dan.
