Encaustic Painting, Mixed Media, Collage, and Photography lessons in the greater Philadelphia area.

I am a fine art photographer, commercial portrait and event photographer, mixed media artist and encaustic painter. I love sharing my love of art and knowledge with students who are enthusiastic about learning a new medium or expanding their knowledge.

I teach:

-traditional black and white photography techniques (shooting film, processing film, and darkroom printing)

-commercial digital photography, portraiture photography, event / wedding photography

-encaustic painting (the ancient art of painting with melted pigmented beeswax)

-mixed media art (collage, altered surface, photo manipulation)

-handmade book-making

-portfolio development (for any level artist or professional photographer looking for guidance to create a solid, cohesive body of work)

I teach private workshops from my home studio (or can come to you). I tailor my lessons to meet the individual needs or interests of my student.

Rates may vary based on travel greater than a half-hour. Discounts may be available if you purchase a block of lessons in advance. Contact me for details / rates vary on a case by case basis.

I teach painting, photography, wedding photography. Lessons are available for the following levels: beginner, intermediate, advanced
I give lessons in person at my home, the student's home or meeting in public locations.
I give lessons by webcam.

Leah's Experience

I've taught art and photography professionally at the college level for 7 years

I've also been teaching private and small group workshops for adults and children for the past 10+ years

I have taught private one-on-one lessons, small groups of about 5-10 students, and classrooms of about 30 students

I have helped my students pursue diplomas, further their career as artists, and develop a professional portfolio of work. My students have gone on to exhibit in the professional art work internationally. My photography students have also gone on to work in the commercial field.

Leah's resume

Bachelor of Fine Art Photography -- San Francisco Art Institute, 1993
Masters of Fine Art Photography -- California College of Arts & Crafts, 1998

My work has been in international publications, I've exhibited my art in galleries nationally, and I was featured on Martha Stewart to demonstrate my encaustic painting technique in 2007

I am a working commercial photographer with 20 years experience, an exhibiting artist, and I own and operate my own hand-made album and art book company (blissbooks.net)
