Megan is a fabulous teacher, dedicated to helping us explore and learn her art and the nuances of painting. She also has a very pleasant and sweet disposition - something that makes 4 self-critical new painters more at ease with the process.

I have over 30 years experience with painting, sketching, and Color theory. My passion is to share my knowledge and understanding. I have been consistently teaching groups and a one on one basis for the past 3 years. I understand from an early age the impact art has. I would love to help you build a foundation of art and give you the tools to create when ever you desire. I specialize in beginners/intermediate and will customize each lesson to fit your need. I absolutely love what I would love to share it with you! Let’s get started!!

About Andrea
Her talent was discovered by her mentor, her grandfather, also an artist.She had an eye for color. She could draw anything as an exact match. Eventually this amazing talent and passion translated into paintings. This connection with colliding colors is what initially set her work apart in shows and competitions and has led to a growing following of galleries and collectors alike.

Andrea has been featured in many publications in and around the art community. She’s donated paintings to many organizations in Dallas, TX, Riverside, CA and in the Orange County area.

She has since independently illustrated and published her own children’s book. Andrea has decided to follow her heart, her passion, and her dreams by teaching others.

Painting is a great creative outlet for people to spend time relaxing and make something beautiful that brings you pride and joy. Anyone can paint! All it takes is time and a willingness to make mistakes and learn from them. I’ve been painting for 8 years and teaching for 1. I welcome all students who are interested in picking up painting as new hobby or returning after a long time away. We’ll build out your painting techniques and color theory so you can paint from real life or something abstract.

About David
I have a bachelors degree in printmaking and oil painting and spent some time in Florence, Italy studying painting and drawing by studying the High Renaissance masters. Currently I draw and paint in my spare time. I love teaching art as a way to connect with other artist and creative people who like talking about and creating art.

Through introducing or reviewing the fundamental principles in art and applying those to the lessons and exercises I assign for after class hours, you’ll see yourself improve week after week and gain more confidence in your artistic ability. I create a custom syllabus for you to review and work in things you’d like to try, certain mediums or subject matter to make it more appealing to you.

Making art should be fun and restorative! I’m very flexible in meeting your needs and speed at which you want to learn.

The third lesson was pretty helpful. His approach towards drawing is different than what I am used to, but also very beneficial.

David did a good job breaking down how to draw a candle using the grid method. The concept he taught me is really easy to apply and helped me complete my first assignment. He is a good instructor.

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 Daniel
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 painting.

I have taken several classes from Dan- at his home and Western Colorado Center for the Arts. Dan has a mellow ,soothing approach to teaching. He often let's the student take control, only to intercede when needed. Dan has a good use of color and could depict wonderful wildlife scenes-wildlife is his forte

When I heard Dan was giving painting classes 19 years ago, I rushed to enroll. I had been admiring his paintings and style ever since I first saw them displayed. Although I had some art experience, I was really new to oil painting and the lessons Dan was able to convey helped me immensely. His classes were easy going and informal leading to a relaxed environment making learning so enjoyable. Though I am now a professional artist, I find myself often thinking back to techniques or lessons in composition I learned from Dan in the years I studied with him. He's a natural!
