Private Oil Painting Teacher

While I'm a new/aspiring teacher, I hope I can create a fun environment where you feel challenged yet accomplished each painting lesson. I want to know what you're most interested in so I can tailor your lessons to your interests and goals. I'm happy to start with the very basics or help students who already have some experience. I have extensive experience painting the human figure, portraits, as well as animals in oil paints, soft pastel, and moderate experience with acrylics.

Strong recommendation for Deron. I had a 2 hr lesson where I had specific things I wanted to do and learn, and he delivered. Very flexible in the lesson, and great instruction!
Sierra W.
Deron is wonderful with my 7 year old granddaughter. Her parents are in the process of divorcing and she is having a hard time with it emotionally. Deron is patient and kind and allows her to direct the lesson with his guidance. She loves drawing and she really looks forward to her her lesson time with Deron.

Deron is an absolute joy to work with. My dude ran off immediately after the lesson to draw some more. Now that's a positive review. :)

Online Oil Painting Teacher

Online or In-Person Oil Painting Lessons with Las Vegas, Nevada based Carolyn K. are for beginner thru intermediate level artists who have never been taught, or perhaps never mastered, a step-by-step way of approaching painting whether it be in oils or acrylics.
Carolyn has a unique, fun and easy way of interacting with students and conveying information, sure to delight students! She feels strongly that a solid, organized structure is the surest way to achieve the success of a completed work. It is the difference between artists who can become prolific and those that accomplish few pieces in their lifetime with most works becoming abandoned out of lack of an approach to completion.

About Carolyn

I am absolutely passionate about oil painting!! If you want a teacher with passion and zeal, supportive, encouraging, and kind...I'm your gal!! I really care about your success and encouraging you to remain a life long student and lover of art!

My regular art classes were canceled due to COVID-19, but a friend knew someone who was taking some some private classes online with Carolyn and I decided to try it out. Now that I have, I think it's much better than being a single face among many! I'm improving so much with the one-on-one feedback and suggestions that I'm getting and Carolyn is such a kind, funny, and personable woman that I don't feel intimidated at all, even though my skills aren't where I'd like them to be. She's also extremely flexible with scheduling - with the shelter-in-place orders and with kids in the house 24/7, I can't always meet at the same time every session, but she lets me choose what works best for me which is another thing I don't get with regular classes. I'll definitely continue taking classes with her even after life returns to normal. Thanks Carolyn!

"Having Mr. Ohasi as an Instructor has been one of the most valuable and enjoyable things I've done in life. It sounds a bit cliche, but in all honesty, I've learned more about myself in the time I've worked with him than I've done in a long while.

He not only helped me understand how to build my skills, but also that its okay to be an individual. At the same time he taught me how art centers around community and helping each other develop into people who can help others. He helped me to put my thoughts/ dreams on canvas and helped me make them real. I truly enjoy his classes!"
