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.

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!

Julie is an Awesome instructor. She explains the subject in detail, shares all the materials, answers all the questions patiently. She will even go a step further to learn and help if we ask anything which is out of her scope in photography. I learnt a lot from her.

About Ana

I am a Graphic Designer with a full time job teaching Photoshop and Photography in high school.
After receiving many requests from amateur and professional photographers, as well as aspiring graphic designers, willing to learn the unlimited creative possibilities that Photoshop has to offer, I decided to join Takelessons and become a teacher here.
If you would like to learn how to create literally anything your imagination leads you to, or just use techniques to obtain an effect you have seen somewhere, you came to the right place.
You can discover the secrets of professional photo retouching or dive in the surrealism of advanced photo manipulation, Each lesson will be customized to your specific needs.
On the other hand, if you are just getting started in Photography, Photoshop or Graphic Design, you have likely tried those You T

ube videos and gave up in frustration, as most of these videos are too fast or too advanced.
No worries, we can go through the basics at your own pace, until you feel comfortable with using the tools on your own.
The sky is the limit.

Note: in order to book classes for advanced techniques, students must have the necessary basic and intermediate proficiency levels.
If you are not sure what your level of proficiency is, please check with me and we can figure it out together.

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 mentally 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 can begin 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.

About Rita

I have been teaching and painting for a long time- since 1983, actually! I am also a professional mural artist and painter, and found that my painting improved many years after art school. I was frustrated back then and painting seemed so complicated! Is that you? I figured out, with my own research, the freedom and fun in painting. Your painting will improve week to week as we work together to apply nice color combinations, explore values, shapes, edges and so on. Are you interested in portraits, still lifes, landscapes, animals? Let's start with smaller painting sketches to learn the basics of color, shape and design. Then we will take it from there. You can and will succeed in producing paintings you desire!

About Donia

I am a retired actress and vocal enthusiast. I have retired from going to auditions, and performing paid gigs after I moved to Flagstaff to earn my degree in Social Work. I have spent my whole life mastering acting and vocals. I have been in the acting/modeling business since I was a toddler and was with an agency for some time. I have been in several commericals and films and countless musical productions. I also was in a music production program called CMAS for two years. I have eight plus years of vocal training. I am classically trained and trained in performing musical numbers. As for acting I have twelve years of experience and was in the advanced acting class at Dearing Studio for two years.

Voice students can expect to improve their range weekly. To learn how to read music. Each voice is unqiue and special and I will aslo teach t

hem the proper skills and techiqunes that prevent vocal nodules.

Acting students can expect to recieve at least one new scene each week or until they have mastered the scene they have given. As well as how to prepare headshots and resume.

I have experience teaching students of all ages even adults. I want to make sure I cater to each individual preferred way of learning. I want to make sure my students are allowed to be creative and love to make each lesson fun! I believe everyone learns differently. I also have experience in working with children with special needs.

About Ira

I'm a former NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC PHOTOGRAPHER and Fashion Photographer, shooting ads for major corporations. My ads for Revlon, Estee Lauder, Calvin Klein and other famous brands have apeared in VOGUE, ELLE, INSTYLE and hundreds of other publications. I've also been a frequent guest speaker at major photographic events and trade shows, teaching advanced techniques to professionals.

I'm an expert in using Photoshop, including advanced retouching techniques, composites and layering. And I believe it's critical to master these skills to produce truly great photography, because even if you're not doing any retouching, you need to use these techniques to fine-tune your image and make it powerful.

Because I started as a photo-journalist and then went into fashion and advertising, I have a in-depth understanding of how to create strong, b

eautiful images in all of these areas. I've hung out of helicopters and airplanes shooting for National Geographic, and worked in New York City creating images for major ad campaigns.

If you want to improve your travel photography, portraits, shoot amazing product shots, or anything else, I can show you how to do it! I love sharing all the knowledge and techniques I've learned over the years to help make you the best photographer you can be!

"Mark has taught me a lot of lessons in photography. Very knowledgeable in a broad range of disciplines (i.e. long exposures, head shots, weddings, street,
editing, portraiture, product, and more). Covering so many categories of photography I feel gives him the ability to answer many questions that a specialized niche photographer would lack. I am a photographer and I get paid gigs, that's how good Mark is. I received my ROI 100x over. Highly recommended."

In addition to the basics of aperture, shutter and program auto modes, he provided very practical information on things like tripods, storage, programs and apps. I can't wait to take more lessons from Mark when I return from Peru!"
