Adult painting sessions for intermediate, advanced and beginner levels.  Artists will work from reference photos (yours or supplied - primarily landscape or still life). Regular painting demonstrations and the instructor will paint along with you allowing total freedom to explore the medium and help you if needed.

Each artist will get individual attention working at their own pace and within their own abilities to develop confidence with better techniques of drawing, composition and color theory. We will be developing paintings into a finished stage, working with final values to make it cohesive and dynamic.

All teaching is done with a totally positive approach and an understanding of the artists personal desires through interaction and discussion. The goal of these sessions is for artists to totally enjoy their painting experience, and have a good time. Acrylic is the perfect step from watercolor into an opaque, solid medium. You will achieve paintings you never dreamed you could do.  A list of basic supplies will be sent to interested artists.
