Lynn is an excellent teacher. She knows excellent how to take you through the process so you understand exactly where you are going and when you go home it is easier to recall. Rare in a teacher. Thanks Lynn!

I can teach drawing at any level. My goal is for the student to improve and work towards their desired achievements -- whether it's just to get better at drawing, work towards making a masterpiece, or putting together a portfolio to get into their desired art school.

In drawing, I'd work primarily in pencils or conte crayon. Otherwise the medium of choice could be digital (Photoshop or any similar digital medium).

I've been drawing since I was 4, and have graduated from Carnegie Mellon University with a Bachelor's in Fine Arts. I've also worked for Disney Research for a year and a half, and now freelance as an artist for clients.

My daughter learned a lot in her first lesson with Emily. The whole video/online lesson thing was new to me, but I thought it went smoothly.

I like to take pride in making my students feel secure and knowing and seeing the improvement they make within each session. I will be handing out a materials list prior to our lessons. Most students see a huge leap in drawing within the the first lesson! Class starts out usually with me giving a 1 hour demonstration on what I expect them to do as I cover and explain my entire process and thought and calculations that goes into drawing and painting. For the rest of the class I will be besides the student as they work giving them one on one pointers and as much help and explanation as they need in order to improve. Students start out with learning how to look and draw what they observe accurately by first working on simple geometric shapes such as spheres, cubes. We then will move on to Cast studies and after a few months of studying we will start on figures and portraits.

Kai is so unpretentious and open with his knowledge and expertise. He is an excellent teacher and very positive to all the students in class. I will be taking my fourth class with him soon and look forward to honing my skills with his guidance.

Kai has been a terrific teacher for me. I went with one idea of what I wanted and Kai has made me re-evaluate and has taken me to a place where my skill set will be so very much stronger. And he's done the in a caring and patient way that makes the whole process easy and enjoyable. I have learned more than I thought I would in a very short period of tie. Kai is a terrific teacher.

We will learn how to draw from real life/still life to paper with graphite, ink or charcoal. We will understand line forms, shading styles and line control. We will gain a strong foundation understanding of using basic shapes to get final images.

Drawing is the process of learning to see & allowing your hand to move with your mind as you process what you see. It is line, space, shape, shadow, texture, mass, value, light, and the inspiration of the artist. It ranges from sketching to detailed drawing--depending on your temperament and interest.
