Course List

Independent Studio

Beginner-Advanced
This class is for those who enjoy learning in a one-to-one mentoring studio environment. Students are encouraged to work more independently, developing their own ideas/concepts (representational or abstract)—either from observation, imagination or from photographs. Each student will receive in-depth personal feedback and one-to-one instruction every week. This course is perfect for those with art-making experience, but beginners are also welcome.

Painting from Photographs

Beginner-Intermediate

It is not simple to paint from a photograph, as the result is often a disappointing flatness and dullness. This course will teach you what it takes to translate a photo image into a painting. Learn, hands-on, how to “read” a photo, and how to select and correctly interpret the visual information captured by the camera.

Previous drawing and painting experience is a plus, but not a requirement for this course. A small class size allows for plenty of one-to-one with your instructor, which is an important part of this course. A materials list may be provided.
