We were looking for an artist to teach our son. Other parents in the neighborhood highly recommended Carolynne because she not only created an amazing commissioned artwork for their home, but they also expressed how delighted they were with the warm connection and how their child responded to her unique art lessons. She is a very talented artist and art instructor with a strong background in elementary education. Each week she arrives with a new painting project and our son eagerly anticipates the class. Professional grade non-toxic materials / tools are used each time and our child responds with his devoted attention and desire to learn a new art lesson. The projects not only teach art history, they are all about the application of new techniques with the gentle guidance she gives. The result is amazing but even more important is that each lesson we see positive growth in his focus and self-esteem. We would highly recommend Carolynne to anyone that is looking for not only expert art instruction, but remarkable creativity, kindness and energy.
I've been taking piano lessons from Frank for almost two years. He is a great teacher, very patient, and positive. I always look forward to my lessons and enjoy them very much. I highly recommend him!
Kaya is a very competent art instructor for kids. Her lessons are well structures and my daughter loves her!
Hi, I have been working with Matt since 2012 for both my own painting work and for my daughter who is a teen. Matt encourages research (brings art history into the process ), observation, and drawing what you see - he covers different approaches to the disciplines: drawing, painting, watercolor, sculpture, print-making, mixed media, giving my daughter tools that she used to complete her portfolio. Matt helped her create the right type of work for and to edit and fine tune her portfolio. The completed portfolio was a huge confidence booster for her. Matt's training was a huge help in preparing for applying to art high schools and helped to get accepted into Laguardia HighSchool. I highly recommend him.
Alison is very pleasant to work with. She gave weekly art lessons to my 7 yr old daughter who loved the lessons. Alison is so creative and she came in each week with different materials and different projects to work with my daughter. I think all small children would love her.
My 8 year old daughter had an excellent time painting with Sam - Sam made sure to follow up beforehand with what Sara would be interested in and want to paint and what supplies I should have so that it went seamlessly -- the lesson was 2 hours which was a little long but we look forward to the next one perhaps just a little bit shorter!
Faith is a generous and effective art teacher. She is a kind and delightful guide. My experience in a three-day watercolor workshop with Faith was perfect. I was unstressed, challenged and inspired. Faith asked questions about my goals and knowledge before the workshop; she prepared an amazingly organized learning experience. I learned through fun exercises and a painting project about the tools of the trade and many basic and advanced techniques, such as direct painting, wet in wet, washes, using masking fluid, transferring an image to paper, color mixing, glazing, broken wash, lifting a “boo boo” with a scrubber and more. She gave exquisite attention and encouraging guidance without putting her hand on my work. She painted along side to provide examples. Faith’s artistic skills and talents are matched and then some by her generosity, kindness and hospitality. I still don’t understand how she convinced me that there are no “mistakes” and you can scrub out a “boo boo”! Faith offered an amazingly affordable way for me to explore watercolor. She also offered very affordable advice on what limited tools of the trade to purchase to continue on my own in an unlimited fashion. She was very flexible in scheduling to meet my special requests. I look forward to future classes with Faith, after I paint on my own for a while. I found the experience of water coloring and of being with Faith a very special double joy!
Currently, I'm an architect, having my own design studio in the city. My undergraduate is from the most famous art Institute in China. I started to teach painting and sketching many years ago. My mother tongue is Chinese, and I got a master's degree in USA in architecture, so my English is also good. That's why I can teach both art and Chinese.
Julia did a public program for us at the Rotary Nature Center in Oakland, and it was fantastic! She taught watercolor and bird illustration, and was able to teach across a broad spectrum of ages for this drop-in program. Julia is a fantastic teacher, and everyone had a great time. If you're thinking about hiring Julia to teach an art class, I highly recommend her! She's also an amazing artist, to boot :)
Well what could I say that anyone who's worked with Kelli doesn't already know, she was wonderful and her craft is apparent. Very instructive and i've used the technique she taught me to this day with my watercolors.
Great teacher, very patient with beginners and kids. My kids are so happy having violin and painting lessons with Elena. Highly recommended.

I work from reality ,usually from photographs .I strongly believe that artwork should speak for itself ,without an interpreter.
I have an MS in Art Education, and I work with students of various ages and backgrounds. I run a series of art classes for different age groups, with various media, which I teach in my home. I also do various forms of art, such as painting, sculpture, collage, and sell my art as well, In one of these classes, I teach the foundations of art, such as shading and perspective, to even the youngest grades. I have experience teaching all types of art. My approach has always been to focus on encouraging my students to use their own creativity and special talents in a structured manner, in order to create work they can call their own. I also teach arts and crafts classes to kids starting at age three as well as in various nursing homes and assistant living centers. My goal is for the children and adults I teach to always feel a sense of pride and confidence while they produce quality art.
I offer professional instruction for all ages and abilities in drawing, painting, piano, guitar, vocal performance and violin.
I am a celebrated creative director and fine artist. I provide lessons to individuals interested in painting, drawing, advertising and copywriting.
Our instructors are trained artists who love teaching and sharing the joy of art-making with others. Summer Art Camp instructors have earned at least a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree and some hold higher degrees and/or teaching certificates. Most classes also have a dedicated teaching assistant, making the adult/child ratio no greater than 1 to 8.
