I've been teaching drawing classes to students of all ages and group sizes for the last 6 years. In my Drawing lessons we'll learn about basic technical concepts and techniques with different tools. We'll discuss how to apply those techniques to different images and scenes, and how to use them most effectively. Well also learn from classic pieces of art and historic artists. Lessons can also be tailored towards students individual interests while also giving a well rounded education.

Art is fun and relaxing, and that's exactly how I like to teach. Whether you're a beginner, aspiring artist, or someone who's always wanted to draw, I can help you create the portfolio of your dreams. I have watched my students grow from beginners to creating some incredible works.

I specialize drawing realistically in graphite, charcoal, and pen. For beginners, I always go over the basics: shapes, shading, and strokes. We will start with simple objects such as cups and boxes, and move on to more advanced subjects, leading to your goals as an artist. I can teach how to draw from life, photo, or even from your imagination.

About Dennis

Hey there! My name is Dennis, and I have been playing the drums for most of my life, and have taught for nearly 10 years. Music has become my greatest passion, and I love to share it with anyone who wants to learn. Music is a very special artform in which everyone can relate, feel, and understand

I want to help you to become a better artist and have fun while you’re doing it! My style of teaching is to tell you about powerful ways to approach your drawings that will boost your technical ability as fast as possible. In other words, I’m going to help you to make your art look like the thing you’re drawing. But I won’t rush you through it! We’ll take as long as you need to get a good understanding of the most important aspects of the lesson. We can focus on what you are most interested in learning about. Want to learn how to draw faces better? Or maybe improve your proportions for drawing a full body person? Pets, landscapes, still life, it’s your choice because I work for you. Each of these are unique subjects, but there are certain fundamentals that apply to all of them which I will help you with to give your drawings more of a “pop out” look! Some of those things are learning to see values (light and dark), negative space, and how angles and relationships of different elements

About Anthony

I want to help you make huge leaps in your skills to become a better artist than you even thought was possible! Whatever you want to create, you can do it! Private lessons can save a lot of time and keep you on the right path for your personal individual needs, where ever you are on your way to bec

I really enjoy my lessons with Anthony. I asked him if he could teach me drawing from scratch and he took the time to write to me and talk with me with me in depth about how I could learn drawing. every week I find myself really looking forward to my weekly lesson. I am so glad I took the plunge and tried out online drawing lessons and I am grateful to have found such a great teacher through takelessons.

*My scheduling availability isn't always accurate, as many students have their lessons with me every other week. My schedule is different from week to week, so it's best to at least pick a time with me and if it doesn't work, we'll make sure we schedule a lesson time that's convenient for both of us. If you need to schedule a lesson for a time sooner than what the TakeLessons calendar allows, you can always let me know and we'll most likely work something out for you.

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.

I specialize in digital drawing or illustration. Students would get the most out of classes with me if they work in digital media. Students often use Krita, Photoshop, Firealpaca, Paint Tool Sai or Clip Studio Paint on laptop/desktop with a tablet such as

Emily is an excellent animation tutor. My 10-year old daughter really enjoys working with her. She has a very straight-forward demeanor that drives towards real learning using no nonsense feedback that resonates with our young animator in a naturally motivational way. Emily has been extremely professional and helpful to us as we worked to get the right technical setup for her lessons. She is super detailed with amazing follow-up after every lesson and she always responds to questions. We are so glad that we found Emily on TakeLessons! Our daughter is more enthused than ever about animation and the skills that she has learned after these first five sessions with Emily!

Emily works well with my child who is a beginner. I was very impressed with the animation he created during his first lesson! We're looking forward to more lessons.

The ability to capture an image on paper—whether it’s something you see with your eye or with your imagination—is among the most powerful communication and expression tools humans possess. We’ve done it for thousands of years and its scientific benefits to the brain are just starting to be recognized.

We’ll explore basic techniques like sketching, outlining, shading, perspective, and tool use. We’ll apply those to enriching your experience in everyday life and sharing your personal viewpoint on the world.

Whether you’re capturing a bird in flight, a cartoon character from TV, a fantastical creature from your dreams, or detailed renderings of your dream house, my 30 years of experience and training will elevate you to the next level of proficiency and sensitivity.

About Isaac

CUSTOM-MADE FOR YOU Learning involves playfulness, curiosity, and personal connection. I've studied how people learn and how people play, along with 25 years of professional and performance experience, and I focus it entirely on you. We start with what you love, discover what you already know, then

Isaac helped to distinguish the difference between creating art and copying which tapped a different side of drawing for me. Had a good session on training on seeing the tones of shades.

She has an uncanny ability to make otherwise difficult techniques achievable, easy to understand and fun to practice. While taking her classes, through her way of teaching I wanted to paint more, draw more and felt confident to do it. I cannot dream up a better teacher, she is patient, inspiring, and pushes you to try new techniques in a way that you don't realise until you're practicing them.
