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!
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.
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.
We love FAME. Ms. Gloria is a fantastic teacher. She makes piano lessons fun.
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.
Katerina is a great painter and an art teacher! She teaches my daughter arts over a year and kid is loving it. I also been to couple of her art and wine workshops and had loads of fun. She also did some cool face painting at kids Birthday. So I would say she is flexible and extremely professional artist!
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!
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.
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.
I can't say enough wonderful things. I absolutely adore the canvas Shelley painted for me.
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.
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'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.

About the instructor: Madeleine Fu (Chu Hsia) was born in 1922 in Beijing, China. She graduated from Hsin-Hua College of Art in Shanghai. She studied with several renowned masters. Among them was Te-Nien Fu who was famous for his calligraphy and paintings of pines, bamboos and plum flowers. They are symbolic in Chinese culture for elegance, humility and fortitude. Madeleine was so treasured a student that Te-Nien Fu encouraged and was delighted at the marriage of Madeline to his son Paul Fu. The Fu family was steeped in scholarly and artistic pursuit and had several generations of well-known artists. Madeleine and Paul both developed into noted young artists in Shanghai. They studied with Master Dai-Chiang Chang, one of the most sought after painters in China, famous for his large-scale landscape brush paintings. Madeleine and Paul came to the US in 1962 and opened Fus Art Studio in Mill Valley, CA. They have had many exhibits and demonstrations in the last 20 years in the Bay Area, including the De Young Museum's Asian Art Center.
