My name is Prabin, an trained, experienced and academically qualified Fine artist. I believe, my students (expert or amateur), just need to have urge to paint. I can help them develop their own skills, technique and temporament. I also respect their own individualily.
I have bachelor degree in Fine Art and Master Degree in History of Art. I have traveled abroad such as Paris, Rome, Turkey, Tunisia & India for art symposiums and workshops. Regular participants of exhibitions in and around San Francisco Bay Area, and received awards.
My methods of teaching is realistic way to paint human figure and landscapes. That includes basic composition, perspective and architectural rendering.
I am friendly and relaxed by nature. Love to teach both for hobby and career minded students.
Dear Prabin, Here is my recommendation: I met Prabin years ago during Toastmasters in Emeryville. We both were working on improving our speech capabilities. I saw Prabin go from very beginner level speech to knock your socks off speaker that won a round of applause for best speech on a first-time business trip to India. At Toastmasters, he gave several speeches on art and art history that are on youtube. He sparked my interest in trying art, so I took one of his plein air courses at 4th Street Fine Art. Since he goes regularly to figure drawing, his level of painting is at the master level. He took our small class out to the Berkeley Marina to paint outdoors. First, he carefully scouted the best area for composition and light and then walked the students through the process of painting in oils. I was very happy with the results of the class and still paint to this day. Thanks to Prabin. Cheers, Shawn Carter
First of all I teach them basic approach to painting, such as how to set the goal, point of accomplishment after each sessons, and getting familiar with method and materials.
How to visualize or look at a composition is very important before getting into brushing technique, mixing of colors etc.
Bachlor Degree in Fine Art
Master Degree in History of Art
And lot of Practice
I am flexible in pricing.
I like to paint when crowds are around me. I bacome a teacher by teaching my friends. I also have experience in teaching high school students.
I love everyone who are curious.
Recently I tought a class of 50 people in a corporate party event.
I ask them to hire a teacher, who can understand student's ability and guide then based on their needs.
Students should look into their own ability and inability before asking help from a teacher. Sometime it's just a word of encouragement is enough to trigger creativity.
