He also taught beginning to advanced guitar/ vocals/ performance and songwriting as hosted a recording clinic at the end of each day.

Jason has host student showcases/charity benefits where his students were able to get on stage and show off their new talent and perform with other musicians. It wasn't mandatory though, if you were just looking to come out and support there was no pressure other than to come out and have fun.

Jason has been transcribing for guitar and bass since the age of 18 and since then has become a master of the craft including both 5 line staff and tablature, hand-crafted exercises and deconstructions to better enhance the students learning. Artists and genres that Jason has experience with range from Classic Rock, Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, Guns N' Roses, Santana, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Led Zeppelin, Robert Johnson, Pierce the Veil, Paramore, All Time Low, Demi Lava to, Iron Maiden, Motorhead, Pantera, Avenged Sevenfold, The White Stripes, Green Day, Old Crow Medicine Show, Taylor Swift, Mumford and Sons, Bruno Mars, Rob Zombie, John 5, Audioslave, Rage Against the Machine, Van Morrison, the Beatles, AC/DC, ZZ-Top, Bullet For My Valentine, All That Remains, Ozzy, Black Label Society, Sublime, Aerosmith, At the Drive In, Type O Negative, the Black Keys, the Pixies, the Toadies, Black Sabbath, Jason Mraz, Lady GaGa, John Mayer and Journey.

Jason attended the University of Alaska, Anchorage where his degree is in Music and Business. He is constantly continuing his education with music theory courses as well as private guitar instruction. He attends guitar workshops and seminars by artists such as John5 and Kerry King who are known as some of the worlds finest guitar players. He reviews every day from a wide range of over 1000 sources working to become a better musician and instructor.

Jason teaches all experience levels from beginner to intermediate and advanced as well as artists that are signed to labels.

Deron C.

San Diego, CA

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.

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!

Rachel S.

San Diego, CA

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!

Kristen I.

San Diego, CA

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 many mediums of art making 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. I work with teens and adults for college prep, artist development, or just to learn a new, fun, and rewarding hobby.

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