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 teaching 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
-The Creative Process
-Creating a Composition When You Don't Know What to Paint
-Creating a Painting Using a Photo as a Reference
-Glazing
-Oil vs. Acrylic Paints
-Advice for Artists with Works-In-Process

I am happy to teach a student anything s/he wants to explore within the realm of painting.

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!

About Mayra
Private lessons for all ages and currently accepting students!

Experienced, International, Contemporary artist of 15 years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages. "I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of abstract expressionistic skills. I specialize in high quality acrylic-oil-metallic-chalk paints, and heavy duty mediums. I typically use medium to large flat brushes, metal palettes, varnish and resin. I practice and paint on wood and custom gallery canvas. My favorite tools to use as color referenc
e are HGTV Magazine, Real Simple Magazine, Dwell Magazine, House & Homes Magazine, and Pantone color books. Music must be playing when I work. Tell a friend and sign up for a private lesson with me.

BEGINNERS enjoy the benefit of a non-competitive environment. Lessons are designed to teach the fundamentals of watercolor, acrylic, oil painting without being lost in a group setting.

For the INTERMEDIATE painters, these sessions help the artist further develop their skills or work on specific areas of weakness. Lessons are designed to teach the fundamentals of watercolor, acrylic, oil painting.

The more ADVANCED artist benefits by exploring their own personal style. Finding your own artistic voice can be challenging in a group and sharing a new direction with other students can be overwhelming. Watercolor, acrylic, oil painting.

I love Mayra. She taught me a lot more than I thought in just one class. I have a painting that I will hang on my wall. Never thought one class would do that. She has great personality and great skills.

Mayra was very helpful. She had a challenge with us because we we're weren't sure exactly what we wanted to learn. Mayra worked with us and demonstrated some new techniques and ideas based on where we already were as (very amateur) artists. She was helpful, very encouraging, and easy to work with. Thank you!

About Rachel
Hi there! My name is Rachel, and my love for art and teaching began when I was very young. I graduated from California State University Fullerton with a B.A. in Art Education, and completed my Single Subject Teaching Credential for art in 2012. I've taught private lessons to students of all ages since 2005.
I am a published author of two coloring books called Botanical Wonderland and Desert Wonderland, which you can find at Barnes and Noble, Michael's, Hobby Lobby, Jo-Ann Stores, & on Amazon.
I am passionate about helping others achieve success in their own creativity. As an artist, I love
to break the rules. As a teacher, I will show you the techniques I know and have learned through the years, and will encourage you to find your own style and voice. I have painted custom pieces for individuals, businesses, interior designers, and have designed fabric for an exclusive clothing line. I love art, and I want you to love it too!

About Kristen
I'm an artist and art educator. I've been making art for as long as I could hold a pencil. I studied Art Education because of my love for art making in several mediums and started teaching in 2004. My areas of interest are drawing, painting, hand lettering, book arts, and graphic design.

I help students to find inspiration, sharpen their creativity, build artistic skills, and master techniques. My lessons cover the foundations for any medium before proceeding to learn more advanced techniques so that students have a good starting point and won't feel frustrated later on. I work with teens a
nd adults for college prep, artist development, or learning a fun and rewarding hobby.

I love my students and I love helping people. Let me help you grow your passions. Click the green button on my profile to get started!
