About Ohashi

As an artist and art instructor, I have more than 30 years' experience in New York and Tokyo, Luckily, I had the chance to have a wide range of ages’ students ( from 3 to 90-year-old! ) and that could make me grow very much as an artist. My artwork has been published in art books and magazines

Mr. Ohashi is a wonderful teacher. He is patient, creative, and always considering each individual student's needs and how best to encourage and inspire them. In addition, he is a very talented artist and makes learning fun. You'd be very fortunate to learn from him!
David
Mr. Ohashi's classes have been invaluable. I never considered myself to have any great talent in art, but I did have a great interest that, after some failed attempts and false starts, led me to Mr. Ohashi. I couldn't be happier with the teacher I found. With the benefit of Mr. Ohashi's patience, dedication, and sly sense of humor, I've been able to create work I am truly proud of (and which consistently surprises and impresses family and friends) that I wouldn't have thought possible when I first began with him. He is able to impart the fundamental concepts of painting and art-making while still encouraging me to explore a style that is my own. Seeing proof of my own development and increasing skill under Mr. Ohashi's guidance has been incredibly rewarding. I couldn't recommend him more strongly or thank him enough.
H. Borra
I am so glad that I took this class with Mr. Atsushi. He has a friendly and welcoming attitude. In addition to that, he’s very patient. He gave precise and clear instructions which allowed me to feel competent and ultimately confident in my painting skills. I highly recommend Mr. Atsushi if you are seeking for an excellent art teacher!

Private 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!

I have been teaching violin for several years. Due to COVID, I switched to Zoom lessons this year, and it has been surprisingly awesome! Anything I teach in person translates to Zoom, and this makes learning the violin more accessible than ever. I teach using the Suzuki Method and See Saw exerci

Maggie gave me violin lessons way back when I was in high school, and when I decided to pick up my violin again as an adult, Maggie was the first person I thought of to call. I don't know where I would be as a student without Maggie's patient, consistent, and thoughtful teaching style. I have ADHD and carry a lot of insecurities from childhood about my ability to stick with an instrument, and Maggie meets me where I am every single time. Maggie listens to my goals with the instrument and tailors lesson plans and teaching styles to my specific needs.

10/10 would lesson again -- especially for students that are daunted by the process of learning an instrument or who will benefit from a compassionate, trauma-informed educator who has experience working with neurodivergent students.

Maggie is an excellent teacher! Super patient and great at breaking things down into parts that are easy to pick up and remember. I'm often a very frustrated learner, but Maggie has been amazing about encouraging at the exact moment it's needed (often before I even fully realise I need it!). Starting to learn violin as an adult was daunting, but something I had wanted to do since I was young, but it hasn't been the impossible task I thought it would be -- and that's definitely due to having engaging instruction that makes learning both challenging and fun!

I have been with maggie for 1 year now and she has showed me so much She explains everything so so good she does lovely complements she has patience I love learning with maggie she is the best violin teacher I have ever gotten she is really kind I have learned so so so much I would never ever change my teacher I love her 😊 I love learning with her she’s the best teacher! I know you will love her too!

I have been a professional oil painter for 36 years and have taught oil and acrylic painting classes fro over a decade. I teach a casual, fun but serious style class. My goal is to teach the basics of creating a simple strong painting in a semi realistic style. However, my goal is to allow the student to develop their own individual style. Understanding the creative process is also key to making good art.

About Dan

My name is Dan. The only thing that I love more than painting is teaching students how to paint. I call my teaching method, "serious play". In other words, I want the students to learn something of value during each class, but also to enjoy the creative process that is key to making a successful p

Keep the brushes wet, make every stroke count! Very patient - you’ve just got to do it. Been invaluable in guiding the composition - he can’t hold the brush for you! For a “left brained” person like myself I need to get the “slap”!😄

"I've taken private lessons in the past, some were good, some not so good. I've always felt that other instructors followed a very generic blueprint during their private lessons. With Roya, I've never felt that way. The lessons are designed in a way that I felt as if I'm progressing as a artist. Do yourself a favor, and sign up. You will not regret it. :)"

"Mr. Ohashi is an amazing teacher of art. Having studied at one of the most prestigious art schools in Japan, he achieved a high level of technique and philosophy in the basics of creating art. Moreover, his success at teaching children in the US comes from his natural ability to break down complex ideas into easily understandable ones. A kind man and a joy to learn from, I highly recommend Mr. Ohashi if you want to learn any aspect of painting."
