About Deron C.

Close
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 ***

-Color theory
-The Elements & Principles of Design and how to use them

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. :)

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 Jeff K.

I provide classical instruction in portraiture, still life and landscape in your studio or mine. In this traditional approach to drawing and painting, what will be taught and focused upon are perspective, value and composition in order for the student to develop strong visual language skills. The program of study begins with a specific focus on drawing, since drawing is the foundation upon which all great traditional art is built. Throughout this training, emphasis will be placed on accuracy, or more specifically, seeing and rendering correctly such things as line quality, hard and soft edges, proportion, positive and negative space through abstract form and the use of the full range of values.

About Jeff
I'm a graduate of Dean College in Franklin, MA and The School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston where I majored in art history and studio art with a focus on portrait painting and illustration. I continued further study at the Andeeva Portrait Academy in Sante Fe New Mexico, the Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Art in Van Nuys, CA and the Sadie Valerie Atelier in San Francisco.

The program of study for drawing will include: Demonstration of one, two and three point perspective, creating the nine step value scale, cast drawing in charcoal, the still life in charcoal and drawing the portrait. The topic of composition will also be covered. I’ve done commissioned work for Audi, the Norman Rockwell Museum, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the American Repertory Theater, the Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston, Kessler Financial Ser
vices, Harvard Business School Publishing, Shilo Baptist Church, the Chelsea Soldiers Home and others. Samples of my work are available to view in my profile. Additional samples are available upon request.

About Jessica D.

I have been teaching art and art theory professionally for 18 years. I work with each student individually--and craft a plan that works with your specific artistic journey. I teach all art, design, art history, art theory, philosophy and specialize in individual processes and portfolio preparation. I want my students to reach their artistic potential and aspirations while having an amazing experience!

About Jessica
I am a professional artist, writer, scholar, and professor. I graduated from Tyler School of Art in Painting and Art History and University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Fine Arts in Painting. I also hold a Ph.D. in Philosophy, Art Theory, and Aesthetics from Institute for Doctoral in the Visual Arts.

I am now working on a graphic novel and animated short film (writing, animating, producing, and creating original music). Both explore philosophical, anthropological, and art historical themes.

My students can expect to improve week to week in their artistic technique. Every artist is unique; I teach students to let go and begin to really see the world around them and inside of them. We apply foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual vision. I can help any student draw with freedom, confidence, and expression. 

I teach art to students of all different ages and experience levels.

I studied painting, art history, philosophy, and theory. I have taught all arts, design, and humanities courses to children, high school, college, and graduate school.

I can teach students to draw, paint, write, and pursue classical excellence, to learn how to play draw realistically or in an abstract manner, or both depending on the goals and preference of the student. 


I love to mentor students who want to become effective, dynamic visionaries. 
My personal passion is contemporary art but I firmly believe that great technique is essential to any and every style. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better artist!

Relax your mind and let your passion for creativity surface. I provide drawing lessons for those who seek relaxation, stress relief, or even for students who simply wish to improve their skills. One lesson with me and stick figures will be a thing of the past! Let’s get started!

About Salina
I am finishing my senior year at Northwestern State University of Louisiana. I will be receiving a Bachelor's of Science in Psychology with a minor in Criminal Justice in the Spring of 2020. I love aspiring creative minds. I teach three classes: drawing, psychology, and Spanish.

Drawing has been a passion of mine since I was a young girl. I am self-taught, and found that I enjoy teaching it. I taught my younger sister, whom had no interest in drawing until she was a teenager. She now studies art at McNeese State University, and teaches painting classes at the local Painting with a Twist studio. Upon receiving her Bachelor's, she plans on owning her own PWAT studio. I am truly proud of her!

As a current student, psychology is fresh on the brain. I can be a great tutor rather than teacher if you need assistance, or if you are interested
in learning something new. The human mind is brilliant, and I would love to show you!

I have a Puerto Rican father, and I am self-taught in Spanish. My father was occupied with his career in the U.S. Army to stay consistent with my Spanish language development during my childhood. To learn a second language, all it takes it motivation, hard work, and dedication. Nothing is impossible!

I look forward to helping students reach their best potential in my classes!
