Margot was very personable and knowledgeable about the calligraphic style that I wanted to know. I do window painting and wanted to have a better understanding to apply to my own work and felt like I was given the tools and knowldege to do that.

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 water painting for almost 10 years..
This is a very exciting class! Students will learn How to Paint Watercolors, How to hold a watercolor brush and Basic Brush Control Exercises etc...
I will get you started and perhaps inspire you, as a watercolor painter. I can supply lessons on the craft and skills, but purpose is what is driving you to want to try to create art. What that vision is, is unique for everyone. The footsteps of the path that lies before you are yours to follow until you can find your own path.
So what are you waiting for ? Sign up your lesson today!

"Think about it this way. Sandra has had dinner with Ansel Adams. She's worked in the White House three times as a picture editor. She was part of a team that won a Pulitzer Prize. She loves photography and she loves to look at photographs. And most importantly she loves to work with photographers regardless of their "level". You will learn about your photographs. You will learn about yourself. But don't be intimidated by her background. She is NOT one of those photography guru experts who try to motivate by tearing you down. She builds on where you are as a photographer. Instead of telling you that a photograph is no good she might tell you that "you should be doing more of this type of photograph." Whatever it costs to learn from Sandra is cheap. What you will learn is priceless."

"I wish I could give Sandra TEN stars; five are not enough. She's the best! She helped me see my pictures, and the world, in new ways. I was lucky enough to see her work with a variety of photographers, from students just starting out, to professionals who had been working in the field for years. They all had great things to say about her, and how she showed them how to improve their portfolios. Many of them went on to win contests thanks to her teaching. If you want a teacher that is easily approachable and very accessible, has a wonderful sense of humor, and will take you and your photos to a new level, do yourself a favor and contact Sandra. You'll be amazed!"

"My classes with Professor McNeil were amazing. While her courses are not easy, they are extremely rewarding. She has an uncanny ability to make otherwise difficult techniques achievable, easy to understand and fun to practice. While taking her classes, through her way of teaching I wanted to paint more, draw more and felt confident to do it. I cannot dream up a better teacher, she is patient, inspiring, and pushes you to try new techniques in a way that you don't realise until you're practicing them. If you take her classes you'll only want to take more."
