Megan is an outstanding artist as I noted seeing her portfolio and some work she shared at the start of our lesson but a great teacher as well! Very positive, easy to understand, clear about next steps and gives homework to do on if you want to really dig in. Looking forward to the next session!

Do you want to paint like Rembrandt? Do you want to be the next Van Gogh? Or maybe you want to be able to paint a portrait of your family dog! Well, these are the online classes for you! My name is Timothy and I have been oil painting for 25 years. I enjoy sharing my art experience with others, no matter what age, no matter where you are beginning. I can begin with the simplest subject matter in painting, and advance you into more advanced subject matter such as portraiture and painting from life. My training is a balance of self taught instruction and my art teacher, John Gordon, the designer of the Green Bay Packers logo!
What are you waiting for? Now is the time to cultivate your inner artist and use your artistic talents like never before. Contact me and let’s get the ball rolling.

About Timothy

I am a fun-loving art teacher who is looking for art students of all ages who want to learn, learn, learn!

Tim is very knowledgeable about anatomy. He always started on time which was a plus. He provided some guidance but it didn’t feel like a lesson and more of a demo. He communicates pretty well but I would suggest asking students about things they like rather than making assumptions based on gender.

He took time to find out what I was interested in learning and answered all my questions. He gave a great demonstration too.

I am a professional artist with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting, and works that have been displayed at the MoMa in New York, the Museum of African American Culture in Houston, TIME Magazine, and more. Our painting lessons will be specifically tailored to you and your personal goals, while also maintaining a flexible structure. I find most painting teaching to be much too limiting, and while our lessons will go over traditional techniques, we will most importantly be finding your personal style and strengths! We will uncover the importance of color weight, color balance, general color theory, learn many different painting techniques, learn how to paint from life, how to paint hyper-realistically, and much more. In addition, we will go over helpful physical tools that i've found instantly make me a better artist. After the basics are covered, we will be studying master works, both traditional and contemporary, and copying these pieces to learn new techniques. I believe everyone has ...

My husband purchased art lessons for me as a gift. I have taken 4 lessons in acrylic painting from John and have one lesson remaining. I’m a beginner. I explained a bit about my art experience and sent him examples of my work before our first lesson. He has tailored my lessons based on the information I provided. I have found John to be very personable, professional, encouraging, and knowledgeable and would definitely recommend him to anyone interested in painting or drawing. 😊👍🏻🎨

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.

Suzie Q
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!!!

Kiersten's fine art lessons focus on two central ideas: 1. Helping students understand and refine excellent technique, and 2.Cultivating, encouraging, and polishing each student's individual style. Kiersten incorporates concepts and exercises based on the atelier, a classical French program that teaches practical, time-tested methods used by master artists throughout history. Lessons usually follow a specific schedule, one that Kiersten has adjusted and perfected through the years. Each class begins with an introduction, followed by an exercise or art game that helps students to warm up and focus on practicing a skill without the pressure of learning while trying to create a finished piece. Next, Kiersten gives a lecture-usually with a slideshow of examples- and/or does a demonstration for the students(s). After this, students work on an assigned project, which is often taught in a step-by-step manner, and finally, students are given time to work on an individually chosen piece under

I have been teaching acrylic painting and other media for over fourteen years. I have experience working with students from all walks of life and art backgrounds- I love beginners! I have the maturity to intuit the student's needs on a level that someone fresh out of art school just doesn't...Curriculum is based on the individual student's desires but is heavily focused on: color theory, texture, correct proportion exercises, perspective, and design theory.

About Melanie

I take great joy in bringing art to the surface that the student didn't even know they had within them! Creating art is mainly about confidence, and I build that with each person, one on one. As they gain confidence, the techniques needed to create meaningful and engaging art come more easily. I ha

"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. :)"

"Mr. Ohashi is an amazing teacher of art. Having studied at one of the most prestigious art schools in Japan, he achieved a high level of technique and philosophy in the basics of creating art. Moreover, his success at teaching children in the US comes from his natural ability to break down complex ideas into easily understandable ones. A kind man and a joy to learn from, I highly recommend Mr. Ohashi if you want to learn any aspect of painting."
