Kate was an outstanding teacher. She taught not only the art of painting but the craft of good content. Additionally, your success mattered not by your level of education. From beginner to master, all artists can learn from Kate Samworth.

Michelle is very skilled and motivating. But what I liked the most was the relaxed and chill environment she created during the lesson. It was only my third time doing a painting class and it was definitely the most enjoyable experience I've had so far. See picture for confirmation. My painting came out glorious, and might I add, slightly better than my brother's (he's on the left).

My husband and I attended an introduction to acrylic painting that Christine taught. The subject matter was cherry trees. She was well prepared and gave helpful hints that beginners could relate to. She also encouraged our individual interpretations. Then afterwards we enjoyed a pleasant time of socializing with the other participants.

Acrylic painting lessons for two! I was very pleased that the owner was so accomodating to our needs. Both of us worked on the same basic picture, and the instructor was quite helpful. We think we're going to sign up for some more lessons!

Nina taught a number of drawing, painting, and sculpture classes for my homeschooling group. Since our children were different ages, she planned a lesson for the older or more capable students as well as one for the younger students, and in that way she was able to accommodate several different age groups with the help of a supervising parent. Nina's thoughtful suggestions to each student brought out individual abilities, besides the basic skills that she addressed. She was particularly adept at bringing self-conscious and reluctant students into the art arena.

Shawn Yu is an excellent teacher. He's kind and teach well. If I have a problem with one of my drawing I can send it to him by email and he always answer me. I strongly recommend you this teacher. =)

About

I've been doing art for as long as I can remember, and I love working with people to improve their technical skills and help them develop an eye for what works best in a composition. I'll find your skill level and we'll build off that, starting with what you think your greatest weaknesses are, then making goals to expand your abilities. Anyone can create great art, given time, practice, and guidance.
