This 2.5 hr. ongoing painting class will include individual personalized painting assistance and critique, demonstrations, warm-up exercises, brushwork, color-mixing and fun assignments. Folks are welcome to paint along with the demonstrations but are encouraged to bring their own unique style and creativity. All suggestions are aligned to YOUR style, not mine. We have a fun and lively talented group of folks from beginners to seasoned painters! My teaching style is casual.
I work with everyone individually and push them to  develop personal art trajectory. We review work in the class and paint together online,  with demonstrations. 

As usual, I’ll also be offering private and semi-private lessons.
Those purchasing a group of personal lessons will receive a discount for the month if purchased as a set.
