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!

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.

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.

Mike is a professional artist/mural painter, but I’m so glad he decided to do interior painting on the side. He is a pleasure to work with, extremely professional, friendly, and ready to jump in with all aspects of the job (he even took down our curtains and moved furniture for us). He is a perfectionist and truly cares about the quality of his work. Our room looks great, and I am having Mike come back to paint our steps next week. Would highly recommend if you need someone professional, creative, and caring.

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.

Shelley was a great hit at my daughter's 18th Birthday party. She was kind, all the kids loved her, and her work was amazing. She was a total hit at the party--she even stayed longer than scheduled to take care of everyone's requests. I'd highly recommend using Shelley at your party.

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.

Claire is a talented and passionate artist, and I really love her painting. Other than the basic skills for oil painting, she inspired me to observe things in different perspectives and be a risk taker to experiment more in my piece. And it was a very unforgettable experience with her and the others to complete a mural together in my last summer holiday before graduate. Even though it was quite tough but her enthusiasm always encouraged us to go further and further. I am highly recommended her as a teacher and the experience with her was great :)

Verified review

My name is Gaia, I'm an art student who took weekly private drawing and painting lessons with artist Reza. My time with Reza has been a very valuable experience for my blossoming career in the arts. For anyone considering to take private lessons I just want to share the benefits that you won't have in a regular classroom: • one on one interaction. • experiencing detailed demonstrations of first hand execution of every project by the teacher. • personalized instruction allows you to focus on your deficiencies and how to improve on them. Reza is a very talented artist, professional and expert of technique he is adept at instructing every level from beginners to advanced. I found it especially valuable to learn his classical training of painting.

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.
