I've been painting for 46 years and teaching for the last 11 years. My passion is painting, or other mediums, animal and wildlife art. I've been fortunate enough to do hundreds of pet portraits for people over the years and love to do artwork of the wonderful wildlife that I have around me in Florida. Do you have (or had) that pet that you wanted to do a portrait of, let me help you achieve that. Send me a message and we'll go from there.

About Mike

I've been drawing for as long as I can remember, since a child in NJ. I started painting around 12 at one of the local galleries. I started with oil and worked in it for 6 years. I eventually came down to Florida to go to the Art Institute of Ft. Lauderdale where they switched me to acrylic paint an

I have been working as a professional artist since graduating with my BFA in 2007. Living and working in Dover NH for the over 5 years and have recently opened a new gallery and studio downtown.

I enjoy sharing the lessons I've learned from the talented professors who taught me how to work with watercolor at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst and at Lorenzo de' Medici University in Florence, Italy.

Jennifer writes: "What a wonderful way to spend time! Danielle started our class introducing us to examples of watercolor paintings and explaining the different techniques used in each of them, then we tried them out! She was very methodical in teaching us each of the techniques including, washes, color blending, dry brush and color lifting. She tailored the class to our experience level, or in our case, our lack of experience. I can’t recommend this class enough! It was so much fun and so inspiring! We wouldn’t wait to get home and continue our journey into watercolors that ...

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 ...

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!!!
Tim
I am a relatively experienced artist but John has given eye opening instruction in just our two sessions already. I left both lessons feeling like I had a months worth of schooling, and it was stress free. Highly Recommended!

Painting is a great stepping stone into the world of color and I love taking you into that new world. I'm comfortable teaching you how to paint in every painting method (excluding watercolor. That stuff stinks) including digital painting. So step up and get ready to relax and paint with me.

Hey! Kaye the Artist here. I truly believe that anyone can learn to draw if they have the right attitude and the right teacher. I am that teacher! In high school I had a teacher who believed in me and helped me to foster my talents to the best of their ability. Unfortunately as is often the case

With 12+ years of experience, I have a long history of practicing visual art. Drawing and painting are some of my favorite practices, and I love helping others take what they see and express that through their own hands. Together we'll explore what it means to perceive and express through creative visual means!

I really enjoyed lessons with Emilie! She is well organized and has a clear lesson plan for each session, with follow up homework and exercises. I learned so much about technique and the "how to" of drawing. Everything she put together was appropriate for my level and included exercises that challenged me to improve. I could tell Emilie is well trained and skilled at drawing. She is also very nice and I felt relaxed and comfortable with her. Her studio is warm and inviting. Overall it was a great experience and I am looking forward to taking some additional lessons with Emilie!
Ava C.
So happy to have found Emilie! I work for a family with a four year old child who is extremely engaged in art and we wanted to find private lessons for her. Emilie has been extremely accommodating and very intentional in making sure we were ready for our first lesson. Will be scheduling more lessons and look forward to her being apart of my charges explorative learning!

"Mr. Ohashi's classes have been invaluable. I never considered myself to have any great talent in art, but I did have a great interest that, after some failed attempts and false starts, led me to Mr. Ohashi. I couldn't be happier with the teacher I found. With the benefit of Mr. Ohashi's patience, dedication, and sly sense of humor, I've been able to create work I am truly proud of (and which consistently surprises and impresses family and friends) that I wouldn't have thought possible when I first began with him. He is able to impart the fundamental concepts of painting and art-making while still encouraging me to explore a style that is my own. Seeing proof of my own development and increasing skill under Mr. Ohashi's guidance has been incredibly rewarding. I couldn't recommend him more strongly or thank him enough."

"Mr. Ohashi is an excellent teacher! He is incredibly engaging and encouraging with my children. He comes up with the most unique and creative projects that the kids love. He has also begun teaching technique as my daughter gets older. She has taken lessons with him for 4 years and has really improved and become very serious about art. She was even chosen for a citywide art competition which I attribute to his teaching."
