I took drawing lessons with Celia when I was in high school years ago. She really helped me improve my composition, sketching, and shading techniques, leading to more realistic and refined pictures. My parents were also happy because we added a bunch more art decor for the house! Celia is a great person all-around, and an amazing artist. I highly recommend her!

I had a wonderful experience with Susan learning the basics of watercolors. She was great to tailor the lessons to exactly what I was looking to get from them and I learned a lot within a few lessons. I actually even came out of it with a fairly decent first painting. Beyond that, very reasonable prices, excellent communication, good schedule flexibility and a lovely cozy studio. Highly recommend!

My daughter is learning drawing and painting from Deepa and it has been an amazing experience. She has gone from knowing nothing about lighting and perspective to being able to do realistic still lifes that shock my friends to see were drawn by an eight-year old. Highly recommend her class.

I have worked with Sayaka for several years, and she has given me a lot of helpful advice on how to improve my painting and drawing skills. She offers me insightful feedback on my completed work, as well as encourages me to take on new projects that I would never otherwise consider. For example, I am more comfortable painting in acrylic, but Sayaka has inspired me to try oil, and since then, I have broadened my horizons and feel ready to take on new challenges. Thank you Art Journey for making my artistic journey that much more fun and adventurous!

Shelley has taught my 2 kids for 3 years since they were 3 and 5 years old. She is very talented in every kind of media. This was a fantastic opportunity for them to get creative at young age. She teaches with many kinds of mediums including clay, pastels, watercolor, charcoal, face painting, acrylic, balloons, and crafts etc. and introduced new project and theme every week. My kids have fun and a great learning experience. They are looking forward to their art lesson. They never get bored to learn with Ms. Shelley every week. She is kind, nice, funny, always smiling, and understanding. My kids have one hour lesson per week. After each lesson, Shelley always told me what they had accomplished their artwork that week. Sometimes, she assigned a light homework and my kids love to show her what they did during the week. My daughter enjoys the art lessons. She got award from Santa Clara County Young Artist showcase 2013. Her artwork will be displayed permanently at Santa Clara County Office of Education. We are so pleased with Shelley's teaching ability and professionalism and we highly recommend her as an art teacher to your kids or anyone who is interested in art and would like to improve the skills.

Bill is very intuitive and able to tailor the lesson to the needs of the student. He is proficient in many different mediums and allows the student to chose the medium as well as the subject matter. He gently guides the process, offers advice when asked and is able to offer constructive criticism and suggestions for improvement along the way. He is an excellent teacher.

I am an adult who wants to continue developing my painting ability & to find my true 'personal style.' Debbie understood immediately what I wanted to do & gave me suggested daily sketching exercises to begin this process of discovery. Debbie is an open & friendly woman with loads of artistic talent. I felt at ease with her from the start & I believe that she will be an effective coach for me as I move to a new, more focused level of making art. I encourage other adults who, like me, are self-taught to take themselves seriously as artists & to contact Debbie for direction in their own art journey. I know that making art has enriched my life for years; "investing" in a teacher like Debbie will no doubt add even more to its value in my life.

    Over the last year I have had the fortunate experience of working with Vita though the Cosmic KIDS art education program. Vita has consistently presented professionalism, innovation and creative vision in her role as an art educator at ASEP's after-school enrichment program. Every lesson that Vita teaches has clear intentions and learning goals for her students. Vita's ability to facilitate positive classroom management practices has been especially impressive to our team as she is able to meet the specific needs and learning styles of her students. On top of these positive experiences I appreciate Vita's flexibility as she is willing to adjust her schedule or classroom location in situations where teamwork is needed most. After one year of ASEP's partnership with Cosmic KIDS our organization has decided to expand Vita's role so more students in our community will have access the impressive curriculum that Cosmic KIDS offers. I look forward to continuing ASEP's partnership with Cosmic KIDS into the 16-17 school year and beyond!

    Erin did a fabulous job for me . I recently moved to the Rocklin area and wanted a painting depicting the surrounding terrain. She knew exactly what I was talking about. We went back and forth with a few sketches, a preliminary and then the final product. It was beautiful. The painting has so much depth, and the sky is phenomenal. Can't say enough good things about my experience.

    My wife and I had Sabrina paint our newborn's nursery. She painted all four walls, creating the room of our dreams! Our houseguests are always very impressed when they see it. We were very happy with her service.

    About

    I have a lifetime of serious art training and can actually draw, in a world where these days, everyone thinks they can't, and so no one tries any more, not even very many artists. I have an MFA from NYU and also studied art at Columbia, Parsons, the New School, the professional atelier of a prominent New York artist, and the San Francisco Art Institute. I studied art all over New York and Italy and France. I've spent my entire life drawing and painting. I have enough internal mastery of my craft to constantly innovate and pioneer new ideas all based on a solid foundation.

        About

        I've been drawing, sketching, painting and sculpting since I was old enough to hold a pencil. My work has been exhibited in galleries, given awards, and some years ago, I was privately mentored by an admissions officer (and successful fine artist) from the Cooper Union School of Art. But none of that really matters! Let's get together and draw, paint, or sculpt. I'll help you understand the pros, cons, and nuances of different media; how to look at your subjects as an artist; how to plan your compositions -- it all depends on what you want to learn. Let's have some fun.

        Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
