San Diego, CA
View Full Profile

Deron C. has had over 10 years of experience teaching other how to use drawing materials ranging from ink to pencil to charcoal to chalk to oil pastels. Learn how to use these materials and more. Draw what you see whether the reference material is a photograph or a three-dimensional still life. Understand color theory and composition. Improve your creativity while improving your technique.

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.

*** Lesson Details ***
Subjects may include, but are not limited to:
-Color theory
-The Elements & Principles of Design and how to use them
-The Creative Process
-Creating a Composition When You Don't Know What to Paint
-Creating a Painting Using a Photo as a Reference
-Glazing
-Oil vs. Acrylic Paints
-Advice for Artists with Works-In-Process

I am happy to teach a student anything s/he wants to explore within the realm of painting.

About Dovile
I began teaching while studying in Art Institute. My first students were 5 to 7 yr. old kids. It was very challenging, but also very rewarding. I was teaching them skills, they were teaching me patience. Later the age of my students grew, until I ended up teaching the same students I was in the same classes just 6 months ago. Again another challenge. I love challenges and even more I love helping others to overcome them.
My philosophy about teaching is that everybody can learn, it is only the way how we learn is different for different people. Another very important thing - I strive to be creative, respectful and approachable.

I've been teaching drawing for 2 years to ages 5-12. My students have the opportunity to develope their own visual passions: landscape, still life, and portraits. We start with line quality through balance of space. Then we'll add shape proportions. Next, we'll develop a variety and unity of form through contrast and gradation of value. Finally we'll add details through texture and maybe color. I will provide pencils, erasers, paper, pens, and colored pencils.

About Hannah
Hannah seeks to share her passions for yoga, travel, art, nature, adventure, and creativity with you!

Hannah creates balanced, fun, intellectual, refreshing yoga sequences that take you on far away imaginary journeys while also teaching deeper yoga philosophy and wellness concepts. These classes are available live in San Diego or on video (many filmed on location) to take you on an inspiring journey abroad!

With 4 years of experience as a flight attendant, and many more adventures preceding, Hannah's curiosity and adventurous spirit have explored ancient ruins, pilgrimage treks, world famous art museums, countless natural beauty vistas and monuments, while encountering and soaking in elements from worldwide cultures. She has chosen San Diego as her home because of the abundant sunshine, aesthetic design, friendly people, nourishing
nature, and yogic culture.

She also had the opportunity to teach 4 years of drawing, painting, sculpture and mixed media to students from grades 5-12 at the San Diego School of Creative and Performing Arts, Torrey Pines High School, and Endeavour Academy. Her lessons focused on individual creativity and learning about historical and cultural art techniques from around the world. Through the Language of Art, she taught the Elements (line, shape, form, value, space, color, and texture) as well as the Principles (balance, contrast, proportion, variety, unity, and gradation) in each art project. Hannah encouraged every student to analyze their own artwork and the artwork of others through discussions and presentations. Today, she offers private art lessons to individuals of any age who would like to explore their creative side in their media of choice.

Hannah first tried yoga at the end of her college studies, when her fingertips were 6-8 inches from touching the ground (in forward fold), then she dabbled in yoga on Nintendo Wii. She really dove in and found transformation through Yoga One San Diego. In 2012, while serving tables at Cafe Chloe, Hannah met Laura McCorey, a teacher and blog writer from Yoga One, and began learning yoga in beautiful Balboa Park. Laura opened her perspective to the healing aspect that yoga can bring and she began to find inner balance and peace as she practiced 3-4 times a week at the studio for the following years to the present. With an athletic background of a runner and hiker, Hannah gradually began to increase in flexibility, balance and whole body strength. Today, her palms can press against the earth in forward fold! This teaches us that yoga is not for the flexible, but it is here to help us become more flexible!

In fall of 2014, after completing the Rainbow Kids Yoga Training, she stumbled upon the opportunity to also teach yoga to her students at the charter school. She continued to deepen her practice as she received her 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Certifficate from Yoga One San Diego in March 2015. Hannah shared her passion of travel by taking kids through imaginary journeys to different places. This passion evolved into teaching live adult adventure classes at Yoga One San Diego and Waterfront Park.

Hannah's students have been able to experience the joy and health benefits that yoga has to offer. Hannah emphasizes safety in getting into and out of poses, proper alignment, and the benefits of breathing with your movements (Vinyasa Flow). She incorporates partner poses like 'Bicycle" and "House" to teach trusting and interconnected relationships.

Hannah enjoys inspiring her students through a full body experience of movement with breath, muscle strength and flexibility, connection with others, listening to verbal instructions and stories, playing world music, aromatherapy, and symbolism through visual art.

Hannah has had the opportunity to teach a Kids Summer Camp in 2015 that connects the yoga lessons to her art lessons. For example, she taught a Rain forest theme lesson with poses like tree, frog, jaguar, and rainbow, then incorporated illustration examples through books about the Rain forest, and students drew and colored their own illustration with these animals and objects. Further, after a yoga lesson of Things that Fly, students created bald eagles with vinyl by tracing their hands for the wings. Hannah aspires to share her light and enthusiasm to anyone who is open.

Hannah loves Half Moon pose and the contrast that it represents with the sun, similar to yin/yang philosophy. There are many contrasts in our life that are meant to be observed and appreciated: night/day, inhale/exhale, forward-bend/back-bend, hot/cold, energetic/calm, in/out, up/down, new/old, fast/slow, work/play, travel/home, left/right, clean/dirty, empty/full, difficult/easy, and young/old. She is inspired to continue to grow on her journey and share it with you!

Hannah is patient and Mia enjoys learning from her. I sit nearby during her home lessons and feel the teaching technique is perfect for Mia.
I took lessons as a child and feel Mia has accomplished much in five lessons while having fun and enjoying the songs she is playing.
I would highly recommend Hannah to anyone who has an interest in learning how to play the piano.
I chose piano lessons as a Christmas gift to my granddaughter. I waited until she showed an interest in learning piano and I'm happy to have found a great teacher. Thank you TakeLessons and thank you Hannah.

Drawing involves training the eye to see basic lines, shapes, textures, and values while looking at an image . Everyone can train their eyes to see and draw! You will learn the process of simplifying an image while coordinating your eye and hand movement on paper. Depending on your artistic preference the drawing(s) can range from a sketch to a detailed rendering. Skills you will learn are:

Process of drawing
Composition
Value
Texture
Space
Shading and understanding pencil types

Depending on your preference and experience, I can teach you drawing methods for pencil, charcoal, color pencil, soft pastel, or oil pastel. We can focus on drawing the subject matter of your choice: wildlife, portraiture, landscapes, or abstract. I look forward to hearing from you!

About Elissa
I am a preschool, elementary, and middle school art teacher and an accomplished artist. I have experience teaching all ages explore creativity while learning to paint and draw. I believe every individual no matter the age, experience, or inherent ability can learn to draw and paint! I can teach any artistic style, whether it be portraiture, wildlife, landscapes, anime, abstract, or mixed media.

Lessons are structured by meeting a student’s goal while building a strong foundation in the medium of preference and familiarizing one’s self with the elements of art, principle of design, and the color theory. Students will have simple step-by-step instructions that break an image down into basic lines, shapes, and layers coupled with visual examples. Children will focus on solidifying their artistic strengths while learning artistic technique
s in every aspect of art, young adults will strengthen their art portfolio with visual art tools, and adults will rekindle their passion for art by revisiting the foundations of art.

I look forward to unlocking your or your child’s creative potential and strengthening existing talent with artistic techniques! Lessons are offered in-person at my studio just outside of Boston or online. I look forward to hearing from you!

*Attention: If you or your child has cat allergies, I own a cat. Depending on the severity of your allergies, I am flexible to confining the cat to one room during our in-person lesson.

About Rebecca
I'm a professional artist with a passion for teaching. I love teaching kids and have many years of experience in both public and private schools. I love teaching adults of all ages and skill levels and I am passionate about inspiring others to open up to the evolution of the creative process.
I have many years of private art training, from art lessons in my elementary school as a kid to private lessons and group workshops with master artists throughout my lifetime. My training has been versatile, as I am an artist with multiple interests, but my main focus is on oil painting-both plein air painting and studio illustration work. I am attracted to beautiful colors and the play of light and shadow. I paint in nature as often as possible, and on other days I work on turning landscape, figure and portrait skills into illustrations in the
studio. I like clean color, strong brushstrokes and creating a sense of flow and movement in my paintings. My goal in each piece is to create a world that the viewer will yearn to enter. The process of finding a sight in nature or hearing a story that moves you, or of having an incredible dream or vision, and then step by step, making that come alive on the canvas, is my biggest passion.

Do you want to learn the basics of art? How about how to use watercolors to enhance your drawings? Or would you like to learn how to market your art online? Well, I may be the teacher for you! I am an Illustration graduate from the Savannah College of Art and Design. I teach lessons to anyone who wants to perhaps dabble in the arts, to any artist who may want to learn how to further their artistic journey. I want my students to be submerged in the art world. I want to create a safe environment for any student to have fun and explore their inner artist.

About Emily
Hello there! I'm Emily Carrier, an artist, illustrator, and all around nerd. I am a freelance Illustrator who works primarily on children's books and character designs. I have studied illustration for four years at the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD). I have been drawing ever since I could hold a crayon. My love for art only grew with time. Now, my art style can be described as whimsical and quirky. I have worked with different clients and have even produced four children's books with more on the way!

I am here to help any beginner artist who wants to learn the fundamental basics of art, to the intermediate artist who may want to further their skills and experiment with new materials and techniques. Being a graduate of an art school, I have been emerged in an environment that pushed my own boundaries and creativity. I have lea
rned new techniques and ways to promote my art and spread my love around the world. I would love to mentor any student who wants to learn more about art, whether it is for their own personal projects or if they wish to pursue art as a career.

Art is one of the most important subjects that can be taught. It allows one to explore themselves and the world around them. You learn to harness your inner creativity which can help develop problem solving skills. You do not have to be Vincent Van Gogh, Picasso, or Leonardo Da Vinci to express yourself through art. The point of art is to find your own inner happiness.

As a mid-20s poet and musician trying to expand into visual art, I found confidence I didn't know I had by taking lessons in drawing and painting with Brittany. With an encouraging demeanor, she has taught me techniques that organically lead to the kind of art I have always wanted to make. After my lessons with Brit, I feel inspired and motivated to keep making art and confident enough to push myself to new levels. No matter if you're just starting out or working on a portfolio, I couldn't recommend her enough!

Brit is a wonderful teacher for my 10-year-old daughter. She follows my daughter's lead in terms of interest, letting her create without too many boundaries, but also teaching her definite technique to achieve her vision, such as mixing colors and some different ways to apply paint to canvas. In addition, she is teaching her practical skills like prepping a canvas and caring for brushes. They do the work in a grad school studio, which leads to a lot of conversing on other people's work. This serves to inspire my daughter and also gives Brit ideas for her own work! Brit clearly enjoys working with kids and seeing their wheels turn. On top of that, she is calm and patient. I'd enthusiastically recommend her to any parents looking for an art teacher for their kids.
