Whether or not you are new to painting or want to get back into it after many years away and just need some feedback and a new perspective I am here to help. I have been teaching painting for 20 years and I’ve worked with students of all ages, from young adults to retirees. I teach painting using the classical method of observation (meaning, based on what they see). You will also learn how to use color as it reflects the temperature of the light and shadows like the impressionists. I will show you a lot of different artists for inspiration and to teach you how to glean the best from history. I recommend working from direct observation at first (a still life rather than a photo of a still-life).

With oil paint, there are some underpainting techniques to explore to get a really solid layout and to establish the values. This is an advantage to oil because it is easier to work out the values before adding color. Next, over the top, you can do a very painterly technique and have ...

Oil painting is my most favorite medium. It is more expensive, but with that expense comes the abilitly to create rich, expressive, life-like colors that really bring a painting to life. It's slow drying time also makes it easy to change things if you make a mistake, something we all do.

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

"Having Mr. Ohasi as an Instructor has been one of the most valuable and enjoyable things I've done in life. It sounds a bit cliche, but in all honesty, I've learned more about myself in the time I've worked with him than I've done in a long while.

He not only helped me understand how to build my skills, but also that its okay to be an individual. At the same time he taught me how art centers around community and helping each other develop into people who can help others. He helped me to put my thoughts/ dreams on canvas and helped me make them real. I truly enjoy his classes!"
