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

Deron C. has been exploring oil 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.

*** 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

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

While Deron is extremely knowledgeable. ...drawing / sketching is new and I felt that too much was given to me as a beginner in such a short (two hours) span of time. I'm sure after a few more lessons I'll feel more adequate for the task!

I have been teaching professionally for five years with both small children and adults in many different platforms. My students can expect to develop skills of sketching in paint, rendering objects realistically, color theory, color mixing, texturing and blending, and building contrast. I work with you, where you're at, and develop my lesson plans custom to your individual needs. My students and I always have a blast and make the learning experience fun.

About Sondra
Hello future student :) My name is Sondra and I would love to help you achieve your painting goals. I have a wide range of skills, from abstraction to realism and many hues in between. I received my Bachelor's in Fine Arts from The Oregon College of Art and Craft, a school that gave me background in modern, conceptual art. I also learned and revered techniques from the old Masters, such as Rembrandt, who have a classic, timeless perspective on painting. I've heard it said that it takes 10,000 hours to become a pro, which is why I give my students a painting assignment from our very first lesson. I will get you started wherever you are in your level of experience. I'll help you learn to paint what you're looking at as well as develop your own sense of style when painting expressively. I have a great eye for color and mixing and my students
have felt this was a particular advantage of learning from me. I'd love to meet you and help you on your painting journey. So sign up with me today!

I have taught over 500 students how to paint! Each painting lesson is tailored to your interest and where you want to develop skill. My schooling background is in figure painting, modern painting techniques, color theory and composition. I have been trained by masterful painters from all over the world and look forward to sharing all that I have learned with you.

About Megan
*Online Lessons have special pricing - Please contact me about online lesson pricing *
*Group Lessons have special pricing - Please contact me about Group prices*

I am drawn to the timelessness of the human figure as the focal point of a painting. I find people to be my biggest source of inspiration. This appreciation extends also to the students I am honored to teach. I never quite know where the art class will take us and what skills will be honed to match the inspiration the student has, but on many occasions we both are wonderfully surprised by the results. I design each lesson to inspire and encourage the student . The techniques will come with time but it takes inspiration to get there!

Megan was great . We did a "group " lesson with my 90 year old mother who has painted her whole life, but has not in the past 5 or so years along with my 7 year old daughter who loves art. A great experience for granddaughter and grandmother to bond.

She is great! I have learned a lot and had so much fun with her.
She refreshed my mind after 17 years of not touching any brush neither doing any sketching....
I highly recommend her and can't wait for her upcoming classes in her own studio!

Franklin Lakes, NJ

30 plus years as an artist and art instructor/ art therapist. I meet each student where they are at; emphasizing creative expression while at the same time fostering skills that support that. I can instruct in watercolors, acrylics, as well as oil painting and pastels.

About Pamela
I am very experienced working with children and teens. I have been a credentialed art teacher/ therapist for many years. I believe that making art is a joyful experience and can open up creative self expression. Plus, its fun! I love sketching, doodling, painting, and mixed media.

I have a private practice as an art therapist (specializing in children with special needs and autism), but I can put on my instructor hat and focus on skill building in drawing, painting and mixed media.

I love to help students create their own unique style and I do not judge or critique harshly, but gently show students the steps involved.

I teach the students how to draw and paint anything they see or imagine. The classes are no more than 5 students a class and each student gets individual attention. I teach all ages and all skill levels, form age 2 to 92 years old and from beginners to advanced/professional. I teach oil, acrylic and watercolor painting.
The students are brought up in skill level to the point that they feel confident they can paint at the level they want to and can even make a career out of it!

About Laurie
I have taught for over 20 years and worked with over 400 students. I am a mom, myself, and really take care of my students and get to know their families so that they feel safe and secure in taking lessons with me.

In my classes I emphasize two things: creating a new way of seeing, and practicing accuracy in what you see. We move through exercises that develop creativity and work through the fundamental technical components of making a drawing or a painting. Each class builds upon the tools we've developed from the last so students come away with a comprehensive understanding of art making, rather than a step-by-step formula. We work together to not only increase technical proficiency and achieve specific goals, but to develop the confidence to make art anywhere the mood strikes, whether it be painting at your kitchen table or sketching in a coffee shop or a hotel balcony.

About Kelsey
I've currently relocated from Brooklyn to LA, where I have a studio and maintain an active painting practice. In New York, as an art instructor I taught drawing, color theory, and painting as a guest lecturer at Pratt Institute, to professors looking to expand their knowledge base at NYU and Yale; former affiliates of The Cloisters; and small-scale private lessons at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden, and, of course, my favorite way to teach: one-on-one private lessons.

My current body of work is concerned with a female character that inhabits worlds populated by plant life. I was most recently represented by Christopher Stout Gallery New York (2015-17), and have exhibited in New York, Germany, Miami, Toronto, and Montreal. I was awarded residencies at the Centre Pompadour (France); Emerson Landing, Eastside International, Starry Night (USA
); and CanSerrat (Spain). Publications featuring my work include: Brooklyn Magazine, Whitehot Magazine, NYC-ARTS, Posture Magazine, Flavorwire, Lost at E-Minor, Lip Magazine, Tjen Folket, and the Globe and Mail. My next solo exhibition is in the Spring of 2018 in New York.
