Do you want to paint like Rembrandt? Do you want to be the next Van Gogh? Or maybe you want to be able to paint a portrait of your family dog! Well, these are the online classes for you! My name is Timothy and I have been oil painting for 25 years. I enjoy sharing my art experience with others, no matter what age, no matter where you are beginning. I can begin with the simplest subject matter in painting, and advance you into more advanced subject matter such as portraiture and painting from life. My training is a balance of self-taught instruction and my art teacher, John Gordon of, the designer of the Green Bay Packers logo!

Tim is very knowledgeable about anatomy. He always started on time which was a plus. He provided some guidance but it didn’t feel like a lesson and more of a demo. He communicates pretty well but I would suggest asking students about things they like rather than making assumptions based on gender.

He took time to find out what I was interested in learning and answered all my questions. He gave a great demonstration too.

Whether or not you are new to painting or want to get back into it after many years away and just need some feedback and a new perspective I am here to help. I have been teaching painting for 20 years and I’ve worked with students of all ages, from young adults to retirees. I teach painting using the classical method of observation (meaning, based on what they see). You will also learn how to use color as it reflects the temperature of the light and shadows like the impressionists. I will show you a lot of different artists for inspiration and to teach you how to glean the best from history. I recommend working from direct observation at first (a still life rather than a photo of a still-life).

With oil paint, there are some underpainting techniques to explore to get a really solid layout and to establish the values. This is an advantage to oil because it is easier to work out the values before adding color. Next, over the top, you can do a very painterly technique and have ...

What we cover in your lesson will be determined by your level of expertise. If you are just starting out with oils, we will discuss some important things to understand about the colors, mediums, how to set up your palette and some different ways of applying paint, etc. If you already have some experience with oil painting, we will pick up with whatever areas you would like to improve on.

There are also some little known tips I want to tell you about that will be useful to artists of any skill level!

I teach traditional and contemporary painting as well as creative self care lessons. Through conversation and demonstration I pull the art inside you out and give you tools to help you achieve your goals. I took many of the classes to earn my MFA online and have a rich history of learning and teaching online. I started teaching oil painting in 2006 and have taught painting online since 2013. I have taught art to students aged 7 - 90+ years old, some of whom have mental, emotional and physical disabilities.

I teach oil and acrylic painting, and technical drawing. I teach figurative and portrait subject matter, as well as landscapes and interiors. I teach traditional, abstract and surrealist techniques. I teach healing through art techniques I call creative self care.

I truly love teaching. I believe artistic practice is one of the most important and healthy things we can do for ourselves and our world. It is my honor to embark on each student's journey with you and do everything I ...

I have attended several classes taught by Shelley Irish. All were uniquely orchestrated with fullfilling and productive out comes. As a teacher, she has the ability to lead her students creativity in a forward direction, to uncharted awareness.
Time well spent under her tutorial. My background as an artist includes a degree from Cornish, as well as post graduate studies here and in England. I spend countless hours alone, painting, and have always benefited by the enrichment of a class by Shelley.

"Today's art lesson with Dan was planned, organized, and given in a friendly, professional and very informative manner. He has excellent communication skills and his demonstrations are informative as well a fascinating to watch. As Dan's student, I was immediately put at ease by his friendly and energetic personality; I felt as if I were talking to an old friend and I left the lesson with a renewed enthusiasm for painting. I really feel as if I doubled my understanding and enthusiasm for oil painting in my first lesson with Dan. No matter what your skill level is, a few lessons with Dan will do wonders for your painting ability and you will enjoy every bit of the time you spend with Dan."
