From basic beginner skills such as color mixing and showing basic brush strokes, to advanced technical skills using color for dynamic design. I have taught thousands of people from 5 year old complete beginners to advanced. I teach in a way that no one teaches. I actually show every brushstroke. You will start a painting and by the end will not only have a finished gorgeous painting that you will honestly be amazed that you did it, you will have many new skills to take to the next painting and be able to apply those skills forever.

Manhei is a great guy, completely dedicated to his art, and a patient, kind instructor. Definitely overqualified for the job, but with an excellent attitude and optimistic outlook.

From the preparation of the idea, the canvas and the materials through the process of design and composition to the application and final render of the image and idea, let me teach you how to perfectly compose a space using simple geometry, rough in your ideas with your under painting and the. Clarify and express your final notes with perfection. Express yourself, your ideas, without having to doubt your abilities.

Roger was generous with his time and gave me more than I could have hoped for. He spent a good deal of time preparing clay models before our class which made th e time spent there extremely productive
I am exhausted from the class and look forward to trying out the techniques he taught me on my next works

I've been teaching painting for 15 years. I work with my students to customize lessons to their individual needs. Working with specific goals, I can help students achieve whatever level of painting they wish to achieve. I have taught lessons with students of all ages and all levels. I teach the importance of understanding composition, light and shadow. Together, we can work on realism, abstraction, figurative, landscape or anything you desire!

I love helping students learn the essentials of art making and painting! Learn either acrylic, oil, or watercolor painting.

Students will learn about the practice of oil painting. Topics include: pictorial representation: materials, color mixing, color theory, light, shape/form, alla prima painting, en plein air painting, under-painting, and glazing. Through projects students will explore a variety of approaches to oil painting.

Perfect for learning a new hobby or building a college entrance portfolio. I'm a certified California art educator (K-12) and have been teaching community art workshops/classes for teens and adults since 2004.

Each week I provide students with tips for the lesson, homework projects, and any worksheets needed. Students may already have some materials but if not then I have supply lists on Blick U and Amazon for quick and easy shopping.

I'd love to help you tap into your creative potential and transform your ideas into art. Painting is also fun with
