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.Jun 8, 2017

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I offer great prices and am very flexible with hours and schedules. Each class runs for 2 hours in Reza's painting studio in San Francisco and I have all the props, materials and lighting here. I charge $70 for 2 hours class.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I always start very basic with color theory and then work through the other core foundations. I do demonstration for my students with different techniques that I employ in painting and then I have each students practice on a single canvas or sheet.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a Master of Fine Art degree in painting from Academy of Art University and have been painting for 20 years .
