Sharon M.

Book Now

Experienced teacher of 20 years, specializing in drawing, painting, and design at the beginning or intermediate levels. In general, most people don’t learn to draw because they believe you have to have the "gift" but the truth is anyone can learn to draw. I teach students how to draw from a classical studies background, but I believe in nurturing the uniqueness of each student and honoring their learning style. Unlike a classroom setting, a private lesson frees us up to build the lessons specifically around the student's goals and needs.

About Sharon

I have been drawing for as long as I can remember. I began my working life after college as a scenic artist here in Seattle working for ACT, Seattle Repertory Theatre and the Seattle Opera. While working full time in the theatre I took classes at the Gage Academy which is where I really honed my

I am a fine artist, and I am an art lover! I have taught art to kids and adults of all levels, and I have studied art for many years.
I love drawing and painting, going to museums, talking about art, and participating in group art shows. I draw and paint from life every day. I can help you to make your drawings more life-like, improve your color sense, or paint a scene that you picture in your imagination.

I just completed my first lesson with Tabitha. I highly recommend her to anyone that wants to learn how to paint or to gain a better understanding of painting or drawing. Tabitha is an experienced professional with a wealth of knowledge. Her teaching style is excellent, she has a great, friendly personality & is super encouraging. I learned a lot during my first lesson & I can't wait until my next one.!

I will listen to what your needs are and cater to that. My experience in digital photography goes back to 2001. I know how complex the world of photography can be but I will seek to leave my ego behind because I too had to learn from others and frequently in a classroom setting the instructor unfortunately can't help the individual.

About Trudy

I have been taking digital photos since 2001 but started when I first fell in love with Photoshop. My favorite subject matter is nature but the principles of taking a decent photo will be similar for any subject matter. I photograph large events and headshots and believe in the importance of a

If you have one, I will show you how to use a manual camera (digital or film). Even if you only use fully automatic cameras, this will help you understand how your pictures turn out. Even if you only use your iPhone or mobile phone, I can help you get better pictures.

Jeff K.

Book Now

I provide classical instruction in portraiture, still life and landscape in your studio or mine. In this traditional approach to drawing and painting, what will be taught and focused upon are perspective, value and composition in order for the student to develop strong visual language skills. The program of study begins with a specific focus on drawing, since drawing is the foundation upon which all great traditional art is built. Throughout this training, emphasis will be placed on accuracy, or more specifically, seeing and rendering correctly such things as line quality, hard and soft edges, proportion, positive and negative space through abstract form and the use of the full range of values.

About Jeff

I'm a graduate of Dean College in Franklin, MA and The School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston where I majored in art history and studio art with a focus on portrait painting and illustration. I continued further study at the Andeeva Portrait Academy in Sante Fe New Mexico, the Los Angeles Acad

"I've learned a lot of things from Tim while working next to him. When I finally set a side some time for a lesson I was very pleased. I learned how important taking extra time with my values while sketching was, and to take special care of how the light reflects off of the eyes of my subjects. Just thinking about these two simple things instantly brought more emotion out of my sketches. Tim is a truly skilled illustrator and designer but more importantly he has a gift for teaching and working with others to achieve a goal."

"Jessica Maffia is not only a profoundly gifted and skilled professionally trained artist, but she is also a highly intuitive instructor. Jessica will happily meet you exactly where you are in your craft and inspire you to really improve, learn and grow in your drawing. Jessica's decade plus experience as an artist and teacher makes her a perfect instructor for those wanting to take their drawing practice more seriously and begin to master all the elements of this fine art. I have not had a more talented and inspiring instructor; Jessica evinces so much creative passion and artistic integrity that it becomes contagious. I am much better for having worked with her."

"I've taken private lessons in the past, some were good, some not so good. I've always felt that other instructors followed a very generic blueprint during their private lessons. With Roya, I've never felt that way. The lessons are designed in a way that I felt as if I'm progressing as a artist. Do yourself a favor, and sign up. You will not regret it. :)"
