Private Painting Teacher

Whatever your skill level, however fast or slow you want to go, I want to help you to become a better artist and enjoy it while you’re learning! What we cover in your lesson will be determined by your level of expertise. Oil paint is my forte, as I have been painting with it for 30 years. If you are just starting out with oils, we will discuss some important things to understand about the colors, mediums, how to set up your palette and some different ways of applying paint, etc. If you already have some experience with oil painting, we will pick up with whatever areas you would like to improve on. If you are interested in painting the human figure or portraits in particular, we can discuss some important ways to go about painting flesh tones. There are also some little known tips I want to tell you about that will be useful to artists of any skill level!

I will share with you any suggestions that I have for technique or different ways of approaching your painting that may help you ...

As my student you will learn very important basic to intermediate foundation knowledge of the painting process. This involves Color theory, canvas preparations (wood, Canvas and other substrate choices), Brush selections, Mediums and thinning, Paint storage and reusing. We will work on transferring ideas from still life or sketch to canvas. We will cover brush stroke effects, blending, highlighting and work processes for an efficient and most importantly fun workflow.

I am an artist with over 7 years of teaching painting to children, adults, and artists with intellectual disabilities and Autism. During your lessons, I want to teach you the techniques of various mediums that interest you. Once we master the basics, I want to help you discover your own unique painting style!

For our first meeting, I'd love to get to know you and what your interests are. I can then cater lessons specifically to those interests as we build your painting skills. I want you to paint from a place that excites you!

Allison was an amazing teacher! I just recently started painting for myself but I didn’t know what I was doing! After taking a few classes with Allison, I have a whole new understanding of painting and being creative! She has helped me improve my composition and has helped me look my art in a new way. I 100% recommend taking classes with Allison, she is a true gem!
Nathan
Allison is the best! My son and daughter love taking classes with her! She is fun, smart, and really kind! She taught my them so much in just a matter of a couple classes! She is great! My kids love her and have been having so much fun learning and painting! It’s a great way for them to learn and have fun after school.
Anna
My daughter is normally very shy and doesn’t like new people but, she was very talkative to Allison. After one class, my daughter was talking a mile a minute! She had so much fun painting and chatting! She was so excited to be painting! I am so happy to have found Allison! She is a true professional and is such a sweet person! She’s great with kids and is a great instructor! My daughter loves her! I cannot say enough good things about Allison!

"I've taken private lessons in the past, some were good, some not so good. I've always felt that other instructors followed a very generic blueprint during their private lessons. With Roya, I've never felt that way. The lessons are designed in a way that I felt as if I'm progressing as a artist. Do yourself a favor, and sign up. You will not regret it. :)"

David has taught me how to see the world in a different light. I have and would recommend anybody who has an interest in art to take lessons from David. He is able to take anybody with the passion to become the artist they strive to be. He is an amazing teacher!"

"What a brilliant artist! Joe went over everything an artist needs to know about color. He took the time to explain color psychology, pigment, characteristics, color schemes, color mixing, shadows, highlights, ect! He provided a solid understanding of color knowledge that I can put to effective use. Thank you Joe!!!!!!!!!!"

"Mr. Ohashi is a creative and patient art instructor. His classes are enjoyable and he is intuitive in understanding a student's potential, and how best to communicate technique with consideration to a student's unique style. If I encounter an obstacle, he is able to quickly help me understand and demonstrate with fun examples. He makes art engaging and relaxing, and is knowledgeable about the art community in New York City.

I really love Mr. Ohashi's artistic style and feels fortunate to have attended several of his oil painting shows."

"Roya is Amazing!!!! The first time I went to Roya, she asked me what exactly I wanted to learn, and really tailored my lessons to encompass all my interests and things that were important to me. She is patient, sweet, and THE BEST teacher I have ever had (that's a lot coming from an art major).

I have changed many private teachers in the last few years, and ever since I found Roya, I couldn't imagine having anyone else teach me. She is truly a golden treasure.

I have seen her teach to people of all levels, and she has been incredible with every single one of them. No matter your level, she will teach you what you want to learn."

"John is an amazing teacher! Before our session john laid out a lesson plan catered to my needs. When we hopped into the zoom meeting the setting was very comfortable and open. I had many mind-blowing moments during our lesson where john taught me techniques I’ve never seen before (trust i’ve done a lot of digging on youtube). I left the lesson feeling instantly inspired and ready to practice what I learned. 10000000% worth it and I will be coming back for another lesson.

ps. even went over our time to make sure I grasped a technique + recorded and was sent our session. Very thoughtful instructor.

*** for anyone looking for painting based drawing lessons... this is the instructor for you."

"Omg! John is beyond what I had expected in painting lessons! Very clear, thorough and extremely patient!!! Encouraging and inspiring!!! He has a way of showing me colors and values that literally blew my mind. I’ve had only a few lessons with him and I asked my boyfriend to please buy me more for my holiday gift. He is way underpriced for the artistic and instructional skill level he has! Has such an aura of humility that makes me not be intimidated and I’m comfortable to ask questions without fear of embarrassment. I look forward to many more lessons from him. I highly highly highly recommend John!!!"
