Kiana Daneshmand is an Oklahoma artist who has been studying classical drawing and painting methods for over 7 years. During the course of those years, she has also broadened her scope by studying with various visiting instructors Sarah Sedwick, Scott Waddel, Andrew Ameral, David Shevlino, Kerry Dunn, and Vincent Jeannerot. She enjoys working in a variety of different mediums but her favorites to use are oil paint and charcoal. She now teaches at The Conservatory for Classical Art (CCA), the school she was trained at, and at other venues as well. Kiana has also begun mentoring aspiring artists in The Teen Artist Guild in Edmond, OK where she served as a founding officer of the Guild a few years back. Alongside this, she is pursuing her bachelor's degree at the University of Central Oklahoma. Kiana continues work diligently in her home studio and at the Conservatory for Classical Art studio where she received her training in how to approach drawing and painting in the traditional manner.
