These beginning level painting classes will introduce students to the painting process, palette set up, handling brushes, and many other aspects associated with the painting process.   By breaking  down the process into different steps, participants can gain a new understanding of painting skills and approaches. Each session is a self contained lesson and includes instructor demos, individualized instruction and guided practice.

Materials provided or bring with you the supplies you want to explore and experiment with.

Classes are individually tailored to each student.
Students can choose to work on: 
  • basic skill building exercises to gain proficiency in oils or acrylic paint
  • work from direct observation with a simple still life set up
  • bring in a photo that they would like to paint
  • bring in a painting that they would like help with to finish
