Russ designed FCI's corporate logo that is like a piece of art, which I have received numerous complements on. FCI's Logo is trademarked, and a symbol of our strength.

My son took violin lessons from Alicia many years ago, but I still have a very distinct memory of who she is and what our experience with her was like. I loved her energy, I loved her teaching style and my son had such a positive experience of music lessons because of her.

I asked Patty to work with my 89 year old mom who has low vision and hearing and is just starting with Alzheimer's. Mom used to paint and wanted to try it again - but her ability is limited. Patty was extremely patient with Mom and helped her start to paint a gorgeous portrait of her beloved dog Dakota. She needs a lot of help and Patty was there to give it to her. We plan to have her come back to continue to help mom as this activity gives her so much happiness and self confidence.

My daughter took art lessons with Therese and she had a positive and rewarding experience. Therese considers each student individually. She has extensive knowledge of a variety of techniques and applies them to each of her students, rather than teaching just one way.

I have been taking Rose's fine art drawing and painting classes for three years now, each session with classes ~2 hours a week, and have improved greatly from the extensive handouts provided and the models brought in. Learning the basics in traditional medium is an extremely important for a foundation in all types of visual art, and I have been able to build my portfolio and my skills throughout the years in preparation for college and career.

My wife and I commissioned Zimou to create two original paintings for our short film (bythewatersofleman.com). One he had to complete in 48 hours and the other in 2 months. Both exceeded our expectations and were such beautiful works of art. Seeking a very specific style and feel, Zimou not only understood what we wanted but was so in tune with the spirit of the short film he perfectly created a romantic and ageless tone without having been to the set or seen footage. He is truly dedicated and passionate about his craft. I highly recommend Zimou for any work of art.

About

These lessons are for the aspiring artists and just plain people who wish to be able to put their impressions of the world around them onto canvas. Lesson objectives will be an introduction to various oil painting tecniques and then demonstrate how they are used to produce oil paintings. Lessons begin with simple subjects and then progress to more complex ones and introduce new techniques with each lesson. Each class is based on direct observation of the model with emphasis on developing a personal technique and style. There are discussions of line, form, color, paint application, texture, perspective, composition and art history. I earned a B.F.A. from the University of South Alabama and supplemented my training with several years of private study and studio apprenticeships along the east coast of the United States. My work is in many private collections.

About

Yes, you can draw a straight line! I tell my customers not to get too close to the table when they are observing the class rather than participating, that they just might get pulled in. It's fun and easy. Anyone can do this and if I had a list of all the painters who said they were actually amazed at their own ability after taking my class, it would be a mile long. I'm pleased to say there are many happy new painters who have freed their inhibitions by going for it!!

Besides the joy that painting gives me (it's the best relaxation there is), having the ability to teach someone else and pass the skill on gives me much more satisfaction. I am very patient, and I can see which way to lead my student very quickly. I am very good at nurturing already existing talent, and attending graphic school in Europe for three years has taught me the basics for many kinds of styles which I have practiced and experimented with for over 50 years.

About

I teach oil painting in the tradition of The Old Masters. Students will master the technique of chiaroscuro (literally translated "light and shadow"). Students will also learn about color, value, edges, and paint quality (impasto). Potential painting subject matter includes: • Portrait • Still life • Landscape • Wildlife Students can either join one of my classes, or request private lessons. I offer oil painting lessons in Orange County, CA.
