Katrina has been providing drawing lessons for our 9 year old daughter and it's going very well. Katrina is responsive, communicates really nicely with her, in a gentle, kind and encouraging manner. My kid feels relaxed and comfortable which is so important. Katrina has thoughtfully provided specific assignments to practice throughout the week which are tailored to my kid's interests/level. Katrina has also been super easy to schedule with and she is prompt and responsive around setting and keeping appointment times. We are really happy we found her!Jun 25, 2020Verified

My daughter is excited for all her lessons with Katrina. She shows me what she learns and has flexibilty to learn what she wants. The one on one is so nice right now with covid going on. We will definitely be working with Katrina for the foreseeable future. Thanks Katrina!Feb 5, 2021Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I charge $50/hour for drawing lessons, and for illustration projects I charge a flat fee based on the complexity of the project and the materials used (plus shipping if applicable).
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Illustration: I begin by asking my client for details about their project including: what medium they want the work to be in, how large the illustrations are, how complex the images are, and how many images. If the client tells me their budget I can let them know what I can do for that price. Information that's necessary for me to understand what the project is can be sent directly to my email (kmsimonsen(AT)gmail) or social media account. Drawing lessons: For a first lesson I'd like to get to know my new student and learn what it is they're hoping to learn. I like to see some art they've done before, either in a school setting or on their own. Doodling, paint n' sip, and copying all count! I teach line drawing and pencil shading for almost any subject you're interested in.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I graduated from the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts with a Certificate in Drawing, where I took classes in fundamentals as well as animal drawing, anatomy, and traditional printmaking and sculpture. I then completed a coordinate BFA at the University of Pennsylvania where I took classes in art history and other topics, including the sciences.
