    Israel is a great teacher. He is very diplomatic, and I like that he teaches the basics and doesn't give too much information to beginners, so they don't get too confused. I have learned a lot from this class as well as his Urban Sketching class. I will definitely continue taking classes taught by him.

    I love taking this water color class. Israel is the best teacher. He's patient, encouraging. This was the second class I've taken with him and will take more in the months to come.

    Israel Lopez, is a wonderful teacher. He's concise, patient and pleasant. I have done watercolor paintings in the past, but was always self taught. Israel showed us different techniques like: wet on wet, dry brush. We painted Koi and landscape etc. Five classes only, but packed in with information on brushes, what paper to use... worth the small price. I look forward to take more classes from Israel.

    This is a very enjoyable class. It was my second time taking it, and the instructor (Israel) made sure the challenges were different for me this time. He’s a great instructor and I won’t hesitate to recommend the class.

    Great class. Went a little fast. Would have liked to have another half hour to finish our paintings. No real feedback on our efforts

    Israel was a very good teacher, patient and able to explain the techniques used. A suggestion would be to email the students a photo of the following week’s project, supplies and technique focus. This way we could be sure we had everything needed. Because we’re not together as a class we’re unable to share paints as we can in person. Thanks for making the class available. It was very enjoyable.

    I loved this course (although I took it in May, not April) and plan to take it again to continue to practice and develop the techniques presented.

    I liked the class very much, the instructor was patient, laid back and knowledgeable. He was kind and never was bothered by our questions, especially nice for a person who had never used watercolors. I learned enough to continue practicing and getting more comfortable. Would recommend the class to others highly.

    I thought it was a wonderful class and learned a lot about watercolor. I liked how we did paintings step-by-step and came out with a completed work of art. I would definitely take the teacher again if he was teaching a more advanced watercolor class.

Discover the Best Painting Classes in Los Angeles

Are you looking for a way to express your creativity? Why not try learning painting? Painting is a method of artistic expression in which paint, pigment, color, or another medium is applied to a solid surface. The history of painting dates back over 42,000 years, to when nomadic people created paintings on rocky walls using charcoal. The most commonly used tool to apply paint is a brush, but other tools, such as knives, spatulas, sponges, and airbrushes can be used alone or in combination with brushes. “Painting” is a unique word since it can be used to describe the action that creates the end product, as well as the end product itself since both are referred to as “painting”. Any person of any age or ability level can learn to paint.

Why You Should Learn Painting in Los Angeles

If you are looking for a new hobby, learning painting in Los Angeles might be a great way for you to relieve the stresses of your everyday life, or simply give you something new and creative to do in your free time. Do you like creating something for another person as a gift? Painting is an excellent medium for that. Your next painting could end up being something that a loved one hangs in their home, and it is the perfect way to show you care on a special occasion. Let your mind wander and create something that you think they would enjoy.

Did you know that there is a large community of people in Los Angeles that love painting? These might be people who enjoy painting as a hobby, or even people who paint professionally. Once you have a basic understanding of how to paint, you may want to research local clubs, groups, events, or organizations where you can meet other people who like painting. Groups like this can offer you the opportunity to create a new social circle, both in-person and online.

Painting could also be your new side hustle, since being able to paint is a marketable skill. You could easily turn into a part-time job, or even a new job entirely. You have the option of selling your paintings through an online marketplace, or in-person at a craft fair near where you live. You could even begin taking commissions, where you create custom paintings based on the requests of your customers.

Additionally, if you take a live online class, you will still get the real-time feedback from your instructor that you would at an in-person class. You need this type of feedback to learn painting in an easy and relaxing way. Just remember that if you choose to take an online painting class, you will most likely need to purchase your own materials, but your instructor should give you a list of what to buy.
