Class- change in time

Hi all, We enjoyed our first week of Speed Studies. The students did great and really kept up with the change in pace. I'm excited to see the progress as we cont. forward. There will be a change in time. We will now be meeting from 12-4 every Thursday. This change will hopefully work better with schedules and beating the commute traffic.

Take a Class

Interested in becoming a better painter? Come take a class with me. I am excited to start teaching this class as I saw huge leaps in my artwork while taking a similar class. It allowed me to experiment, get better brush handling skills, work on color combinations, and gain overall confidence. We will paint still life, landscape, and figure, rotating the subjects each week. Each study will be timed allowing 30min, 40 and 60 min. amounts of time to paint.
