  • Mohammed Jumah

    Knowledgeable and intelligent. well, we have had talked about what i want to achieve in relation to my goal of reaching an understanding of the basics of drawing and she understood well what i have in mind. on the other hand we have had started with basic idea about gradation in shading and how the eyes need to see in the right way in relation to the shapes and the lights and so on and so forth. she even had my try to draw an apple and that was very aggressive in learning which is a good thing even if you failed the first time but at least it did opened my mind to a lots of things i did not see before. for me Art's function and the way we must understand it are crucially important and my conversation with Ayza, although it was limited but nonetheless it should have a potentiality in shaping my experiences in learning how to draw in the future. thank you for your time. Mohammed.

    A+ Photoshop teacher. I have taken Photoshop with a couple of other instructors, but I learned more in one session with Ayza than any of them! She knows all the shortcuts and the easiest ways to get the results you want. I highly recommend her!

    Patient And Prepared. My daughter wanted to learn how to draw people and Ayza brought a model head for the first lesson. She was patient and encouraging. She first showed how to draw each area of the face. Then asked my daughter to draw as well. She also did an exercise with her to draw without looking at her paper and only focusing on the model. Overall, it was a good first lesson.

    Very patient and has a lot of knowledge. Lessons were fun, relaxed and very informative! I have learned a lot with her during a few weeks than by taking a semester of a non-credit painting course.
