Learn how to unlock your creative potential and release the artist inside you while also learning how to paint.

Deron C. has been exploring painting for over 20 years and has been teaching others how to express themselves creatively with it for over 10. He will lead you through a creative process that encourages creativity and allows painting students the freedom to paint in an intuitive way. Paint what you see whether the reference material is a photograph or a three-dimensional still life.

If you've never painted before, Deron will guide you through the basics of painting, color theory, and the elements and principles of design while helping you exercise and strengthen your creativity.

If you are a painter that needs a little advice or direction TakeLessons.com instructor Deron C. will help you evaluate your work, answer your questions and provide guidance to get you on the right track.

About Deron
I am a San Diego native and have shown my paintings extensively throughout San Diego. It wasn't until several years after I graduated from UCLA in 1994 with a Bachelors in Fine Arts, that I really tried to show my work in galleries. Most recently, my work has been in shows at Project X Gallery, The Museum of the Living Artist, The San Diego Art Department, Sanctuary Gallery, Limbo Fine Arts, and Sushi Gallery. I have just started to show in other cities, most recently at the Rialto Theater in Corpus Christi, Texas and The Nico Gallery in Seattle, Washington.

Along with my painting career, I have created children’s book and magazine illustrations, done graphic design work, and taught others how to express themselves creatively through art. I have been creating curricula for children’s art programs and teaching them. I also have been te
aching adults how to paint at the San Diego Art Department for the past 10 years and, in the past two years, with Painting &Vino.

Through my decade of teaching painting, I have honed a teaching style that encourages students to balance creativity and imagination with technique and skill. I strive to help students discover a process in which they are able to express themselves creatively while also teaching paint application techniques, color theory and the Elements and Principles of design. I am often in front of 50+ people at a time presenting my painting techniques within a limited amount of time.

I look forward to coaching you whether you're someone who hasn't painted since you were a kid or you're a seasoned painter who just needs a little help, encouragement or direction.

It was great! Deron had me pick out a subject and send him the image ahead of time. He had it printed out and ready to go when I got there, along with the paint colors, brushes and everything. Very impressed with his organization. He went at just the right speed for me and we actually made good progress. I'm looking forward to the next lesson!

About Marina B.

Close
Cupertino, CA
View Full Profile

The objective of this class is to push drawing skills, to increase ability to see the relative values within the objects/figure and to learn to ‘plan ahead’ with specific goals to accomplish at different times during the painting. Progressing to painting is at the Instructor’s discretion and depends on the experience of the student and success of the initial drawings.

This class will address the principles that are essential to transform abstract flat shapes into fully dimensional form and create a sense of light on the objects/figure. The student will focus on drawing and painting the object/figure with a full range of values and develop the ability to make accurate relative value calibrations. The focus will be on structure, anatomy, proportion, light direction, edge conditions, abstract movements through the figure, composition and an understanding of basic form.

About Marina
As a child of five years old I was brought by my mom to Gulyaev’s Art Studio and this famous Ukrainian artist involved me in the marvelous world of fine art.

In high-school, I participated in a federally-funded program for the Gifted and Talented in Visual Art. After graduation I won a huge competition and was admitted as a student of the Architectural department of the Kiev Architectural Civil University. In 2001, I become a student, hand-selected by the director of extraordinary Master degree program of Visual Communication, offered by Syracuse University (Syracuse, NY). In master classes, we learned from each other and worked with the best illustrators: Murray Tinkelman and Cris Payne, Dave Passalaqua and Sano Kazu (Kazuhini), Bunny (Alice) Carter and Bob d’Sey, I love to learn new skills and keep learning new styles and techniques
all the time. This love has inspired my beloved students to do the same.

With 12+ years of experience, I have a long history of practicing visual art. Drawing and painting are some of my favorite practices, and I love helping others take what they see and express that through their own hands. Together we'll explore what it means to perceive and express through creative visual means!

About Emilie
Hello! I'm Mesmi, owner of my own studio, a boutique multimedia house that provides music/audio services, visual work and individual artist consultation. Specialties include all types of writing (songwriting, branding, etc.), vocal production and independent music strategy.

As a professional musician, artist and voice over actress, I have won awards, performed my original music at venues & festivals and booked national TV commercials. I have 12+ years background in classical piano, 6+ years as a gigging musician in Los Angeles and 4+ years in recording & production. I also have years of practice in a number of visual mediums, from oil painting to Adobe Photoshop to the newest mobile apps.

With ample experience in both the creative and business sides of being an artist, one of my great joys is equipping others using all that I have
learned, and I believe in taking a specialized individual approach for each person and project.

Whether you need help with crafting your work, navigating social media or learning an instrument, I'm here to help you figure out the best of what will benefit you.

I love all the ways there are to communicate -- through language, sound and visuals -- and am so blessed to share the gift of these arts with others!

Whether you are wanting to learn how to paint using acrylic paints because it is something you have always wanted to learn or you are looking to learn new techniques, I am here to guide you! Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. Not only will you be painting in no time, but you will be building a strong foundation of color theory, drawing techniques, hand sight coordination techniques, and more. I have been painting for over fifthteen years in a variety of scales including large murals to small canvases. I am as eager to share basic to advance techniques as you are to learn. Self expression and painting techniques are a tool nobody can take from you once you have learned and embraced the art of painting. I have a degree in Art Practice from UC Berkeley and have taught 2nd grade students and adults as well. Let's get painting!

About Belinda
I am a professional working artist and I am also a site coordinator for an Expanded Learning program here in Riverside. I obtained a degree in Art Practice from UC Berkeley where I specialized in multimedia installations that included large scale paintings, sculptures, and original music/audio. Due to the versatility in my own work from large to very small scale paintings I have acquired techniques and skills for every scale in between.
I am a strong believer in self expression and visual literacy which gets stronger with the formulation of concepts one builds through inspiration for each painting. I enjoy teaching and learning what my students' interests are and what motivates them. I can help you learn specific skills for abstract paintings to detailed portraits.
Through research I have also learned that individua
ls benefit greatly from creative freedom thus performing better in other academic subjects, learning healthy ways of expression, and mentality feel fulfilled through the therapeutic effects of painting.
If you are looking to work with someone who loves what they do, who is patient, motivational, and can teach you basic to advanced skills in painting, drawing, music, and Spanish send me a message and we start your learning journey!

The first lesson went very well with my daughter. Belinda was methodical in her teaching and approached the lesson with my daughter’s interest in mind. During the lesson, Belinda was able to actively engage my daughter the whole time, and more importantly, her teaching revived my daughter’s interest in drawing. She has already devised future plans to have my daughter practice sketching noses, eyes, and ears so that my daughter may draw the human face later with more realistic details.

I have been painting for 20 years and have focused on Abstract expressionism, figuritve abstraction and landscape painting. I use oil, acrylic, encaustic and digital mediums.
Painting, is a joy of expression that I would love to help you explore and expand on.
I can teach you how to mix colors, learn about composition, discover tools and techniques that you may not have considered.
Let me help you unlock your innate abilities and expand on your understanding of color, form, perspective, composition and technique.
Painting and drawing have their own visual language and this language must be nurtured, practiced and repeated for it to become your very own. Plus it is very fun and a true joy for those that pursue it with vigor.
Let’s paint, draw and use our eye and imagination to create something beautiful.

About Alexander
I have been playing music for 25 years.
During this time, I focused mainly electric bass and the Acoustic Guitar. I play rhythm guitar in a very busy World Fusion Flamenco Gypsy Jazz band, based in the SF Bay Area. I have learned a sure way to develop the building blocks for playing music. A way to practice and retain the information that you want to learn and quickly advance in your musical passion. I personally use these techniques and want to share them with you. Through patience and determination I will help you discover how to practice, develop technique and then enjoy and play music. I will answer your questions about your guitar from the simple to complex.
If you want to learn Gypsy Jazz, chords, rhythm and technique, how to play Blues, Rock, Funk or Reggae, or how to read chord charts and tablature, I want to help.
I am alwa
ys excited to work with beginners, so if you are very new to your instrument we can discuss the geography and mechanics of it as well. We will start with the basics then build upon ideas that will give you a holistic understanding of the guitar and how to play music.

"Practice makes perfect" but you need to know "what" and "how" to practice, too make the most of your time.

I would not say that it is easy to learn how to play music or play guitar but that it is completely worth the time that you devote to it.

Music, is a gift that will always give back, you give it to yourself and then share it with your friends and loved ones.
Music, you will have it for life.

Check out the music that I play.

About Ollie
I love looking at art, reading about art and making art!

Art heals and the creation of it is I believe, empowering. My current practice is an expanding body of drawn and painted works that explore form through geometric, abstract, sculptural and musical languages.

From an early age, I grew up learning about art by watching my mother create. I loved the freedom and challenge that it provided me when I was young and over time have come to evolve and develop my own practice and language as an adult. In addition to art I am a Violist, Sound Designer and Composer and feel very strongly that the work I do visually has deep roots in sound and music.

Education:

Interlochen Arts Academy (Focus in Viola) 1995
Oberlin College (BFA Viola and Art) 2000

Upcoming Shows 2019:

From There to Here. (Jun 22 - Jul 27) - Sara Lisch Gallery

Ollie is an excellent, supportive, and friendly teacher! This is my first time using TakeLessons, and I enjoyed my time spent with Ollie. He was able to give me technical guidance, but also allowed me to play around. I appreciate that he was able to customize my lessons with my personal goals, and even suggest local art I may be interested in. I booked a 1 hour session, and the time flew by! He also allows you to use his brushes and paints the first session, and then gives recommendations for paints/brushes based on your skill level and budget. Looking forward to booking my next lesson. Highly recommend.
