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!

Private Oil Painting Teacher

I am a classically trained artist who works primarily in oil.
My main genre is portraiture and I have taught life drawing and portrait painting in both the UK and USA.
Would be delighted to share many years of experience and teach from foundations of painting and drawing to more complex subjects like colour theory and composition.
My studio is located in downtown Santa Barbara but I am happy to travel and teach at your home as well as teach painting landscapes outdoors.

Eileen has been great to work with online, therecreally are no painting teachers in my area who have the technical knowledge to help me out so I was really stuck. We only started recently but I’m learning so much faster now.

I’ve been working with Eileen online for awhile now and it’s been really great. I’ve learned so much from her techniques and her tips about my palette and brushes. I’ve learned a lot just by watching but her comments to me have really helped my painting progress much faster.

I have been a professional painter artist and musician for 10 years. I received my BFA from SMU in Fine Art and Painting and have exhibited my work in galleries, shows, exhibitions and sold it at auction. My teachers have included Steve Wilder, Barnaby Fitzgerald, Bill Komodore, Massimo Lippi, Jay Sullivan, and others.

Plein Air, Still Life, and Figurative works are my specialties, but I have also studied the development of the abstract language.

I'm also acquainted with old master mediums and techniques such as egg tempera, grinding pigments, etc.

Perry takes the time to explain flamenco and related styles deeply and thoroughly. He also provides detailed micro-scale feedback on hand/arm placement, orientation, range and which muscle groups to engage. But more than the technical, he has an awesome vibe and makes learning guitar quite an enjoyable experience.

"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."

Boris is an amazing teacher and a very talented artist with lots of experience and knowledge of art history. He helped me work on my creativity, master different techniques, explore various mediums and challenge myself. I took group and individual classes and both formats worked fine. I am always looking forward to my art classes with Boris as I learn something new and they are never boring."
