About Shahaan

Contrary to what people may say, no one is born an artist. It takes work, dedication, and most importantly, perseverance. Developing a love and appreciation of art has benefits that extend into all aspects of your life, personal and professional. Art opens up your mind to new possibilities, new ideas, and helps you look at the world in a different way.

As an instructor I can give you a solid foundation on which to grow and become a better artist. I can teach you about color, composition, and technique, while familiarizing you with the different art materials at your fingertips.

I'm currently pursuing a Masters of Fine Arts degree, and previously taught art workshops geared towards adults and children for over two years. So if you're looking to refine your skills or would like to explore the possibilities of art then I can help you. Please don't hesitate to contact me.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Drawing

I have taught art workshop classes for over two years, and in these workshops I always stressed the importance of drawing. Before we started a painting I always worked with each student, helping them perfect their drawing skills. This was very successful and helped each student advance at a fast pace.
