Beginner/Intermediate Art Classes:
These classes are designed for the student who is just starting out and those who have some experience but who need help with general information during the course of making their paintings. We have personal consultations as to the best avenue for development of their work. These classes are 3 hours long and each student works on their own ideas and receive help when they ask for it during class. If a student feels that they would like to move into an advanced class, they are given priority status when a spot becomes available.
Advanced Art Classes:
These classes are for the more self sufficient painter who would like feedback about their work but who is able to establish and develop their own ideas. These classes are 4 hours long and consist of a 30 minute period at the beginning in which I talk briefly to everyone followed by a quiet painting period. After one and a half hours there is a group critique followed by another quiet painting period. The critiques are designed to discuss each students work individually and to also discuss art ideas in general.
These are classes that are usually held for 1/2 day for one or two weeks. In the workshops, everyone works on the same project (ex. landscape, figure, abstraction) and the focus is solely on that subject. These are usually offered one – three times a year and are available to everyone on my mailing list regardless of whether they are signed up in regular classes. Registration is given on a first–come-first-served basis.
