ART & DESIGN
Hi, I am Anika. I am a 2020 - 2021 sophomore at Cupertino High School. My goal in life is to become a professional gaming artist or a television animator. I started taking art seriously two years ago when I moved to the US from India. In India I often helped with the school art faculty to make stage props, giant traditional decorations from thermocol, giant 3-dimensional masks and a lot more and I was well known for my art skills in the school. I continued to pursue my interests in art and realized that I can make it my profession if I work hard enough. I am not a professional artist, but I believe I can help by imparting some of the experience I have gained so far. I have taken courses at Hoosso art studios, which is a prized and professional art studio here in Cupertino.
My name is Kanuj Verma and I am 14 years old. I am a freshman at Amador Valley High school. One of my favorite things to do is origami.

Hi, I am Deepshikha Singh and I am a Professional Artist and Interior Designer and Vastu expert. Art is my greatest passion since childhood so I followed my dream and did my masters in fine arts from India. I have participated in many exhibitions here and in India and got awards for that.
The way I teach I try to make a student learn the techniques so that if I am not there still he/she can draw by themself. I focus on both, drawing as well as painting but most of the time I work on basics and try to improve their understanding skill about creating a form which turns into an Art piece.

Story Telling / Writing
Hi my name is Pavani Nukala, and I am a rising junior at Case Western Reserve University on the pre-med track. I have more than 5 years of experience in tutoring students K-12, so I am very happy to be applying those skills to help other pupils.
I will be teaching the story writing class for elementary students. Eventually, as middle school, high school and as college students, your children will need to know how to share their points in their writing creatively, especially for their English classes and college admissions. It is important to build these skills now as young children, so that later on, their writing advances. For these classes, I will introduce and elaborate on topics like plot, characters, vocabulary, climax and verbiage, which are crucial elements in the development of writing. Each class will be spent delving into one or a few of these concepts, and the students will then learn how to apply those concepts in their writing.
Please feel free to reach out with questions!
