Mayra was very helpful. She had a challenge with us because we we're weren't sure exactly what we wanted to learn. Mayra worked with us and demonstrated some new techniques and ideas based on where we already were as (very amateur) artists. She was helpful, very encouraging, and easy to work with. Thank you!

My name is Jennifer Doehring and I am a freelance artist and owner of art studio Palette Passions. I graduated with my BA from the University of Irvine and have been an art instructor for over 7 years. I currently teach in several locations including; La Costa Glen retirement community, Micheal's arts and crafts acrylic class, and paint parties around San Diego.I teach all two dimensional mediums; my strongest knowledge being in acrylic and graphite/colored pencil.
Please feel free to ask me any questions! I am willing to travel any day or time that works out for both of our sc
hedules. I am pretty flexible, just let me know what you want! Looking forward to creating some masterpieces together!
I'm an artist and art educator. I've been making art for as long as I could hold a pencil. I studied Art Education because of my love for many mediums of art making and started teaching in 2004. My areas of interest are drawing, painting, hand lettering, book arts, and graphic design.
I help students to find inspiration, sharpen their creativity, build artistic skills, and master techniques. I work with teens and adults for college prep, artist development, or just to learn a new, fun, and rewarding hobby.
I love my students and I love helping people. Let me help you grow your passions,
