I’ve been painting for over 50 years. In that time I’ve taught many people to paint and draw - even people who thought they had no talent. I have a real passion to teach people to create. If you want to learn, I can teach you. You can see some of my work at “MarkOehlert.com.”
The best part of creating art, whether it's a painting or drawing, is the sheer delight I experience when creating art. Time and worries just seem to melt away as I get caught up in the joy of creating. The process of learning something new is also an enjoyable part of the process. With art, you're always learning something new.
His drive, his artistic juices flow constantly and he know how to draw and paint. Former student, outstanding achievements.
Mark is able to weave together the specifics of painting and painting techniques with a hands-on demonstration of the painting process itself. It's a rich experience. I highly recommend Mark's painting classes.

Mark Oehlert is an extremely talented artist, and a phenomenal teacher as well. He is so easy going, supportive, and super “user friendly” when it comes to the lessons and techniques he is teaching; Mark can answer any art question put to him and demonstrate so that even the ultimate novice feels comfortable using watercolor or any paint medium. It’s one thing to be highly creative and a master artist, but it’s another to be able to really, really share that expertise as a teacher- Mark Oehlert is both. I highly recommend Mr. Oehlert if you want to learn from the best!!!
I start with an assessment to determine where you are, how much you know. Then I formulate a course that is specifically designed for you, the individual student.
I have a BFA in Advertising Design and I have worked as a professional illustrator and fine artist for more than 40 years. I have won various awards including the "Arts for the Parks Top 100" national exhibition. My work has appeared in many galleries around the nation - Wyoming, Colorado, Montana and Texas. I am among the top western artists in the country to have work exhibited at the Briscoe Western Art Museum, Night of Artists.
I don't have a standard pricing system. My goal is to help you become a better artist. We can work together on the price.
Many years ago, I had some friends who wanted to have their son take art lessons from me. He is now a very talented painter. Word spread and others asked me to do the same for them or their children. I've been teaching ever since.
I have worked withe complete beginners who just wanted to learn to draw simple cartoons, all the way to fine art painters who wanted to make a living creating art. If you have the desire to cerate art, I can help you fulfill that desire.
Whether you become my student or work with another teacher, I would offer this advice: Make sure the person from which you are learning has an authentic passion for creating art the ability to help you become the artist you want to be.
