Learn how to unlock your creative potential and release the artist inside you while also learning how to paint.

Deron C. has been exploring painting for over 20 years and has been teaching others how to express themselves creatively with paint for over 10. He will lead you through a creative process that encourages creativity and allows painting students the freedom to paint in an intuitive way. If you've never painted before, Deron will guide you through the basics of painting, color theory, and the elements and principles of design while helping you exercise and strengthen your creativity.

If you are a painter that needs a little advice or direction TakeLessons.com instructor Deron C. will help you evaluate your work, answer your questions and provide guidance to get you on the right track.

About Deron
I am a San Diego native and have shown my paintings extensively throughout San Diego. It wasn't until several years after I graduated from UCLA in 1994 with a Bachelors in Fine Arts, that I really tried to show my work in galleries. Most recently, my work has been in shows at Project X Gallery, The Museum of the Living Artist, The San Diego Art Department, Sanctuary Gallery, Limbo Fine Arts, and Sushi Gallery. I have just started to show in other cities, most recently at the Rialto Theater in Corpus Christi, Texas and The Nico Gallery in Seattle, Washington.

Along with my painting career, I have created children’s book and magazine illustrations, done graphic design work, and taught others how to express themselves creatively through art. I have been creating curricula for children’s art programs and teaching them. I also have been te
aching adults how to paint at the San Diego Art Department for the past 10 years and, in the past two years, with Painting &Vino.

Through my decade of teaching painting, I have honed a teaching style that encourages students to balance creativity and imagination with technique and skill. I strive to help students discover a process in which they are able to express themselves creatively while also teaching paint application techniques, color theory and the Elements and Principles of design. I am often in front of 50+ people at a time presenting my painting techniques within a limited amount of time.

I look forward to coaching you whether you're someone who hasn't painted since you were a kid or you're a seasoned painter who just needs a little help, encouragement or direction.

*** Lesson Details ***
Subjects may include, but are not limited to:
-Color theory
-The Elements & Principles of Design and how to use them

Deron is very patient. He teaches me different techniques from start of painting, to finishing touches. He is knowledgeable and can convey them clearly. He makes
the painting session fun and I like the interaction with him. Great teacher !!!

While Deron is extremely knowledgeable. ...drawing / sketching is new and I felt that too much was given to me as a beginner in such a short (two hours) span of time. I'm sure after a few more lessons I'll feel more adequate for the task!

I've been teaching/studying/practicing abstract painting for over 7 years. Medium of choice is acrylic paint, but I am also proficient in watercolor and oil. Main focus is in color theory and composition as well as specific mastery in chosen medium. My teaching is based on hands on approach and the goal is not only teach how to do it, but also why.

About Dovile
I began teaching while studying in Art Institute. My first students were 5 to 7 yr. old kids. It was very challenging, but also very rewarding. I was teaching them skills, they were teaching me patience. Later the age of my students grew, until I ended up teaching the same students I was in the same classes just 6 months ago. Again another challenge. I love challenges and even more I love helping others to overcome them.
My philosophy about teaching is that everybody can learn, it is only the way how we learn is different for different people. Another very important thing - I strive to be creative, respectful and approachable.

She is very well trained in musical theater, especially voice. She is also able to teach sign language, she studied AS
L at Northern Virginia Comm. College. She looks forward to helping new students achieve their goals and helping them do so in the way they learn best. Every lesson will include warm ups and vocal exercises, also we will work on different songs and build up your repertoire.

I have now attended 5 lessons with Sarah and after one month, I learnt the correct techniques to breathe & sing. Certainly realized there's less to no pain in my throat compared to before lessons, and also have increase range comfortably. Sarah has different exercises to really help. Looking forward next to project my voice and singing consistently with the right techniques!

Sarah was fun and very easy to follow. She made sure that the signs that I completed were accurate and that if I had questions, she answered them very promptly and thoroughly. It was a very enjoyable session with Sarah. Hope to keep up with her and work on a good level of proficiency.

Hi! I'm Corinna! I'm a full time art teacher at a local "paint and sip" studio. I teach ages 5 and up how to sketch and paint. Have a photograph you want to recreate as a painting? We can do that! I can even teach pet portraits too! You don't need any experience to make an awesome piece of art, I'll make sure you have all the guidance you need!

About Corinna
I've loved art since I was a kid. Believe it or not, Bob Ross is the reason I'm an artist today. I remember watching him on TV and telling my Dad that I wanted to be an artist when I grew up!

But like a lot of kids that want to pursue art, I was told that I would never make any money. With my dreams crushed, I did what a "sensible" young adult would do when I was old enough to work. I got a boring desk job, and I hated it.

It wasn't until 2015 that I gathered the courage to change paths and start working as an artist! I work full time teaching art to ages 5 and up and now I've started my own private lessons.

If you've been discouraged to pursue art, it's time to change! Do what you love and get the guidance you need from someone who's walked in your shoes! Even if art is just your hobby, you will be amazed at what a little professional
help can do to increase your skills!

I am a very creative and open minded artist! I love to teach (especially kids!) and am very passionate about the joy that comes from art and creation! I am so excited to share that with you and explore that imagination of yours!

About Em
Hey there! I am a very creative, kind, and vibrant teacher! I love to teach anything I am passionate about, and have experience teaching in a foreign country as well! I have tutored in a variety of subjects, and always have students tell me how much fun they have in their lessons, and sometimes they even end up gaining a new appreciation for the subject I am teaching them! I am a firm believer in teaching with love and patience, and love to get to know my students and form a good relationship with them (especially if it is more than a one time lesson). My prices are flexible, and skill set is pretty wide! So excited to get to work with you!!

She was a great teacher! Could do all the moves with ease and was patient with those who couldn’t. She went slow enough for us to keep up and get a good result. She kept it fun but yet relaxing and enjoyable.
