About this pro

Please visit my website, www.dkboljat.com. I enjoy sharing what I have learned in my career as an artist since 2004. I am able to help students create paintings. We paint together step by step and I share techniques I have learned as well as tips. I enjoy helping students realized the joy of painting.

I am thrilled to help students realize they are an artist. I enjoy seeing people learn techniques I teach acrylic painting only. I enjoy seeing people successfully create art. I especially love being able to help them overcome obstacles that happen when creating. I teach students age 6 and up at the Sherwood Center For the Arts. I do not teach private lessons or at my home studio anymore all classes are scheduled through the Sherwood Center For The Arts 503-625-4251.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

We all start on whichever painting we all decide to do. I paint it in front of class and go around to make sure they are easily following along. I instruct basic acrylic techniques as well as some i hav developed over the years. We paint step by step together. If someone is having difficulty I will stop and help. when paintings are finished all have learned new techniques. All finished paintings while beautiful, are all different because each individual is unique.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have painted with a Master artist when I first started out. I have also learned techniques that work for me over the years. You could say I am self taught. I say I have perservered and learned by doing what works and what does not work I then gleen the easiest way to create each piece. 

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

All lessons I currently teach are through the Sherwood Center for the Arts 503 625 4ART. They come out to around 15. an hour. 

How did you get started teaching?

I create art. I have sold hundreds of paintings. I have learned from mistakes that can happen when you create. I have mastered how to succesfully create paintings, fix errors and move forward.  I bring all the techniques as well as secrets I have learned along the way. I teach basic rules to painting. I show step by step how I paint each painting. It is easy to follow along.

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with all types of students. I typically do not start painting with students until they are able to follow directions. I teach ages 6 and up to paint using acrylics. The easiest ones to teach painting are the ones with a desire to learn to succeed creating art.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Hire an art teacher that is an active artist, creating and actually selling thier work. One who creates art you like, and would like to know how to make. To help you succeed at creating, your instructor should be succeeding at creating art themselves.
