Jason is a great teacher. He is so knowledgeable and is really good at adapting to your pace of learning as well as your desired outcomes. I’ve been picking a song each week to work on, and he always comes prepared with exercises and new techniques to learn and apply to music I love! I look forward to our lessons.

Lynn was so helpful in aiding me to complete a project I have been wanting to complete. She went at my speed (sometimes slow, sometimes hasty) and helped me with techniques I had no idea about and others I just did not know how to do well. I was working on a portrait of a young girl in a dress and she helped me create the pleats in the dress and work on the girl's complextion and hair. As a hobby painter, I am very pleased with my final product which I am going to give as a gift with confidence!

Lynn is a great teacher. She has wonderful style to adapt the lesson to the level and interest of the student while continuing to achieve the planned results. She ask me each lesson what I want to achieve today with suggestions of things to consider. I highly recommend Lynn for lessons.

Lynn is very knowledgable about many aspects of art. She has an incredible ability to relate the student (Me) and how I want to learn. Lynn is very personable and offers great advice and insight to the drawings that I want to learn to create. I highly recommend her to other students interested in improving their artistic capabilities.

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.

I had a huge coincidence by having a lesson with Kai in the Bay Area. He and I have the same point of view about learning drawing that helps me to understand his tips and instructions. It is a true pleasure to be his student, I was feeling like I’m detective who’s seeking for tips and clues and try to transfer all of that onto the paper. Also he is really good by explaining how to see simple shapes and figures in every object, how to extend an imaginary line and keep angles which did and will help me to draw more consciously. Highly recommend him anyone who wants to improve its drawing and painting skill.

Kai is an excellent instructor and has left a tramendious mark on me as both a student and an artist. Kai may be young, but he has knowledge beyond his years through skill and ambitiously being self taught he has been commended on nationally. Kai in the fall attended FACE and was recently awarded a certificate of excellence from The Portrait Society of America. I very grateful to have worked with him and been walked through his very informative and beautiful demos. Crique from Kai is wonderful and facilitates vast and constructive improvement in skill level. Would highly recommend Kai!

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.

This was my first time taking any kind of private art lesson and I am really glad to have gotten Giuseppe. He explains things in a very easy to understand way, and has no problem fielding questions, even if they stray from the immediate topic, which is great for my learning style. I will definitely book more lessons with Joe.

I am a working artist and have been drawing and painting for more than 9 years now. I currently teach drawing the human figure with live models for groups both at my studio and other locations. I have trained at Glassell School of Houston, Calgary Academy of Art, Atelier Souza Rodriguez. I enjoy teaching and I want to share my knowledge and experience with students interested in learning drawing with pencils, charcoal, pen and ink, conte pencils, etc. I teach private drawing lessons for beginners and intermediate students and help advanced students to gain drawing mastery.

Hilda has me learning the finer points first: pronunciation and the alphabet. It's certainly tricky for a 39 year old brain to learn a completely new language but Hilda makes it fun and I am really enjoying our lessons.

Experienced drawing teacher of 6 years and I have taught students of all experience levels! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of drawing skills. I specialize in figurative, portraits or animals and have the following tools available to use during lessons: paper, erasers, charcoal, graphite pencils, colored pencils and more...

Megan was both professional and kind - clearly knows the subject well. I thought the approach to discuss the pillars of the content was a great idea and I am looking forward to the next lesson.

I made a last minute lesson with Megan as I panicked about a university project that I was in no way prepared for. She is a calming and professional energy that guides you along the first few movements. At the end of the class she summed up what the next steps would be, making sure to set me up for success. I will definitely be signing up again!
