Art with Emily – I work with both children and adults and mainly work in ink, watercolour, coloured pencils, acrylic and oils. I am currently just teaching private lessons but I am also open to teach groups as well. I charge $25/hour for private sessions but I also offer a
pro-rated price to students who want regular lessons over a period of time: 10 hours of lessons would be $200 rather than $250. The student is responsible for their own materials. I can provide employer, personal, and academic references upon request. Email
