San Jose & Mountain View studios

Vika Haimov is an illustrator, doodler, and cartoon enthusiast living in California's Bay Area. She graduated University of Silicon Valley (formerly Cogswell Polytechnical College) in 2018 for 3D Animation, and has experience in traditional mediums including sketching and painting (Acrylics, Watercolors, etc) as well as digital mediums (Photoshop, Paint Tool SAI, Autodesk Maya).

As a teacher, Vika takes pride in fostering a comfortable environment for all audiences. It's her personal philosophy that while art (like any skill!) requires patience and practice, the process should be enjoyable, too. So long as students come away from the class having fun AND learned something new, the job's been done right.

Vika is the author of the Teen Manga curriculum.

My 8-yr old daughter has been taking classes here for the last two months and its incredible. She enjoys the mix of media and her drawing, painting and understanding of art has increased tremendously. Vika uses real art vocabulary and the lessons and creations are wonderful. I highly recommend this small, but brilliant local art school.

Great place, easy parking and my daughter loves her Manga classes there every Saturday for the past 18+ months.

This is according to my son , 11 yo : It was a really fun week . We get to do different project ( animation) daily . At first it was a bit hard to remember all the terms and I had to be patient with my self, and kept asking questions to the teachers . Vika and Katherine are great teachers and super patient with me.
