Classes for teens and adults

Nina not only has the ability to create beauty by setting pencil to paper, she is naturally gifted with the ability to inspire and enthuse.
– Linda Bradbury

Enjoy the wonder of drawing. For centuries people around the world have found ways to express themselves through making marks in sand, on cave walls, on paper. Drawing calms and inspires. Learn to see the world with new eyes and translate that into real drawing skills!

I am grateful to share the art of drawing through teaching and watching the artist in everyone blossom!

Teens love the language of drawing and have strong ideas about style and subject. Through representational drawing, I teach principles that help them discover that style or improve and build upon art they are already creating.

Private lesson fees for teens:
$30 per hour lesson
$40 per 90 minute lesson

Series lesson fees for teens:
$75 for 3 one-hour lessons ($25 per lesson)
$120 for 5 one-hour lessons ($24 per lesson)

Lessons are held at my home studio, providing a quiet, supportive environment, indoors and out, depending on the student’s goals. While teaching fundamental elements of drawing and illustration, I tailor each lesson for each particular student. No past experience is necessary and everyone is welcome.
