Sarah - does a beautiful job face-painting. The kids loved her! She just came and got to work!
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!
Gwynessa is a wonderful painter with years' worth of work to show for it. She has a whimsical outlook and a knack for patiently explaining difficult concepts — a rare combination that makes her a great teacher for young and adult learners alike!
Highly recommend Magic’s professional in protrait painting, Love his details and the way he captures peoples feature on the canvas is elegant and beautiful! Also the colors using just make the protrait painting to the next level.
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!
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.
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.
Biz of Zenda Photography is a gifted artist and instructor (a difficult balance to achieve). I work with Biz to develop my art painting skills. In a short period we covered the skills he has learned over his lengthy career to help accelerate my artistic development. Biz is a consummate professional who goes out of his way for his students and genuinely enjoys his craft which is evident in his instruction. I wholeheartedly recommend Biz as an instructor and a passionate, multi-faceted artist. Thank you, Biz.
My experience with Murals by Sabrina was amazing! She created an incredible work of art on our wall that looks like it took weeks to create, but it only took her two days! She worked with me and my husband on the design, coming up with exactly what we wanted and the price was very reasonable. Highly recommend!
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.
Lucca is an absolutely incredible artist, person, and teacher. I had limited drawing and painting skills, and she taught me so much! I'm considering hiring her more!
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!
I can't say enough wonderful things. I absolutely adore the canvas Shelley painted for me.
It was a wonderful experience that I got to share with my friends, and now I will always have a beautiful painting as well to remember our time together. I recommend anyone who wants to have fun, create great memories, and have an awesome souvenir to take home try out My Painting Party.
Paul Wood from Young At Art contacted me within hours, and was very prompt in communicating and answering all our questions. We were enrolled for art lessons within days.
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. I really love helping others discover the enormous potential we all have inside ourselves. I love offering tools that other people will take and use in their own ways to create their own art.
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.
I teach painting, book making, printmaking, acrylics, watercolor or whatever the customer needs. I have been working as a professional art maker for almost 30 years!
I am a fine art painter, muralist and faux finisher. I am also a certified interior designer and art director. I'm really crafty. I do crocheting, knitting, and many other techniques. I am also a dancer. I can teach Zumba and salsa.
My teaching stands out because I have much experience and patience with students of all skill levels. I am knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The best aspect of my job is the excitement that I see when the student is engaged in learning.
