Original Art

Online Art Workshops

Helooo there! I’m an artist in the San Fracisco Bay area. I love to paint vivid local scenes. My original art is available for sale at affordable prices. I also teach online art workshops and in person at my studio and other art studios in the Bay Area. I truly believe art can help you relax, destress and tap into your innate creativity. And I want as many people as possible to experience this. Come join me for a fun online art class for kids, adults, private parties and corporate events. No experience necessary.


Art for Sale & Art Workshops

$275 11×14 inches pastel on paper

I paint original and affordable art. I am inspired by the beauty of nature. A lot of my art features the California coastline. My art has been featured in magazines and newspapers. I sell my art; check out my art here. I also welcome commisions. Email me to order one.

“Painting is beautiful, and looks exactly like Alameda! Mandar also helped me with framing of the picture, so it looked absolutely stunning when I gave it away. Mandar was very accommodating with the delivery process and also very responsive in all communication. Overall a pleasure to do business with, and the painting was fantastic – it looks even better in person than in the photos on the site!”


Adult Online Art Classes & Corporate Events

I enjoy teaching art workshops for adults. I do a live demo with the class as I think that’s the best way to teach. All mediums are welcome and no prior experience is necessary. Students paint along with me or sit back and watch to paint at their own pace. There is a lot of fun interaction and one-on-one coaching. Online Art class every Thursday from 6:30-7:30pm PST. You can come for one or as many as you want. If you are on the East coast or in another country and are interested, email me and we can find a way to create a class that works with your schedule. See more info here.

I also do private parties and corporate events. Hands on art activity can help teams reduce stress levels, channel creativity and improve effectiveness. I recently did one for Health Care workers, who really enjoyed the class. By the end, each walked out with a painting worthy of framing. Email me to set one up.

Online Kids Painting & Clay Sculpting Classes

I offer several classes for kids, Adventures in Color & 3D Art, Adventures in Clay Sculpting.  Art can truly provide an outlet for self expression and discovery to kids. An artistic activity can help develop creativity and concentration. Early exposure to arts can develop into a lifelong pursuit of joy and well-being. 

With two young kids myself, I have really enjoyed teaching them to explore mediums and subjects and want to encourage more kids to do so.

Online Art class every Wednesdays from 3:00-4:00pm PST. Kids can come for one class or multiple. Clay Sculpting is available on demand as a private class or for a group for 3 of more students. Please indicate interest to be included in upcoming Clay Sculpting workshops or for the upcoming Summer Art Camp. See more here.

“Outstanding instructor”

Mandar is an outstanding instructor. Both his demonstration and his hands-on approach in giving advice, encouragement and praise make the workshop a pure joy. The class is small enough to allow for individual one-one opportunities. I cannot wait for the next one..

“Thrilled with this (art) piece”

5 Stars + ! We were thrilled with this piece that Mandar painted from a photo we sent him! He was very easy to work and quick to respond. He made the process simple and seamless. Would not hesitate to work with him again!

“Highly recommend”

Mandar is an amazing artist and he’s equally as wonderful with kids. This is our second year in painting class with Mandar and my two 7 year olds love it! Besides teaching them skills, Mandar always comes up with creative and engaging projects. My boys have come home with many new pieces of art they are very proud of (and are frame worthy at home too). Highly recommend!
