Jason Das is an interdisciplinary artist and storyteller. He instructs classes in Observational Drawing, Watercolor Techniques, Strategies for Stuck Artists and Urban Sketching, among other things. He has taught for Urban Sketchers, Sketchbook Skool, Moleskine, Future of Storytelling, and Abrons Art Center. He believes that everybody can and should make things themselves (art or otherwise) and it’s even better if we can make and learn things together. He is the former President of Urban Sketchers.

Jess Worby is a cartoonist, illustrator, visual artist, and teacher at schools like St. John's University. He specializes in teaching the creation of visual narratives that establish a unique personal voice. His work has been honored by Society of Illustrators, American Illustration, and Best American Comics, and featured on sites such as Huffington Post, Buzzfeed, and Wired. Clients include The New York Times, McSweeney's, Koyama Press, and The Brooklyn Rail. Jess runs the monthly Brooklyn Draw Jam at the Studio and participates in organizing biennial comics and zine festivals with Shoestring.

Yuri Leonov received his Bachelors in Fine Arts from the School of Visual Arts in NY. He instructs courses in Structural Anatomy and leads weekly community figure drawing sessions. Frequently, his work attempts to link its conceptual content with its formal qualities, usually through surface treatment, dictated by the specific demands of the subject matter. The symbolism contained within Leonovʼs work tends to pull from art historical references ranging from ancient mythology to architecture, or simply by alluding to old master paintings.

Jenny Carolin received her Masters in Fine Arts with a concentration in Painting from Syracuse University, and her Bachelors in Fine Arts from the Columbus College of Art and Design. She has taught Figure Drawing, Foundation Drawing and Drawing and Painting for Non-Art Majors for the College of Visual and Performing Arts at Syracuse University. Currently she is the Director of Shoestring Studio and a Co-Founder of the Mudhouse Artist Residency program in Crete. Honors include the Jerome Solomon Foundation Grant and the Posey Foundation Grant.
