Private Painting Teacher

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.

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!!!

Like drawing and other forms of art, painting begins with technique and fun. I want to encourage a love for art and painting brings out that love and develops creativity. I graduated from art school in 2020 and immediately began teaching children online due to the pandemic. I am a published illustrator of children’s books and used watercolor painting to illustrate the books. I love teaching and seeing the joy others experience with art.

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 ...

"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."

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!"

Very impressed with his organization. He went at just the right speed for me and we actually made good progress. I'm looking forward to the next lesson!"
