Still Life- the basics and beyond!
Working in a supportive environment students will learn the basics of still life painting: color mixing and color theory, how to paint basic objects, paint application, value rendering, composition, and basic drawing skills.
Great for a beginner or a more advanced painter looking to build on their current skills.

Method: Demos and hands on critique, brief lectures
Medium: Oil preferred

Landscape in the studio- turn photo references into strong paintings!
Working from photos, students will learn how to break down a complex landscape and turn it into a successful painting. Students will learn about color, atmosphere, value, drawing, and composition.

Method: Short lectures and demonstrations, hands on instruction
Medium: Oil preferred
Levels: All levels welcome

Plein Air painting: Enjoy the outdoors while painting landscape
Per request I will teach students how to paint on location in the Plein Air (outdoor) tradition of landscape painting. Email or call for more information.

Mentoring and private lessons
I will help students build on their current work and improve specific skills in the area of drawing- all subject matter, landscape painting, still-life painting, and general instruction. I am also happy to work with beginners who have had little to no training in drawing or painting.
Inquire for teaching times, schedule is flexible to suit specific needs.

A basic supply list for oil painting required. Email for suggested materials.
