Ruth was amazingly helpful. She was clear knowledgeable and a great communicator. She was able to solve all my issues and answer all my questions. I highly recommend her as a teacher for illustration

My 1st animation lesson with Ruthie was a BLAST! She had me share my project ideas in writing before we met so she had a sense of what I wanted to work on, and helped me clarify my vision. Even though I’m a beginner at animation, Ruthie used her expertise and wonderful teaching style to help me learn some basic skills with a new program so that I can try things on my own. I can’t wait for my next lesson! Thank you Ruthie!

I teach drawing skills in any medium (this includes digital art - drawing and painting) covering any style and interest ranging from traditional still life and live model subjects to cartoon and anime. You will learn the fundamentals of recognizing and drawing shapes, arranging and cropping composition and the basic structure of human figures. As you advance you will learn about lighting and rendering techniques, creating movement and advanced composition. If your interests are in digital art, you will learn all of the same drawing concepts of traditional drawing plus digital painting techniques and color theory. I can also give you the tools and understanding to create your own digital brushes to use on your future art projects as well as tips and instructions on using Adobe Photoshop or Procreate for painting.

If you are a more advanced student, we can dive into more directed areas of study including sketching, fine art, concept art, landscape work and figure drawing, all ...

Sarah is patient and answered all my questions about using my camera in different situations. She answered my questions about shutter speed and aperture with easy to understand examples. I hope to have another lesson with her once I practice my newfound knowledge about photography!

I learned a lot about drawing. This really taught me the foundations of drawing. Measuring, gesture drawing, learning about drawing bone
structure were all very helpful. Overall, this class helped me learn essential skills for drawing and taught me how to develop my observational skills. I am really glad I took this class, at first I had doubts about being majoring in art, but this class really gave me hope! Thank you Joey for such a nice quarter I think you are really inspiring and I inspire to be like you!

So my son is having a great time with Jason who has a great way of giving feedback and steering Cody using a balance of instructions and positive feedback. Cody is definitely enjoying his lessons and I am seeing real progress. I feel like I did the right thing investing in these lessons and giving Cody a great summer with a wonderful instructor.
