ABOUT

THE PAINTING CLASS IS A PLACE FOR PRACTICING PAINTERS, AND PEOPLE WHO HAVE ONLY DREAMED OF PAINTING !  WHETHER YOU ARE A NOVICE OR AN ACCOMPLISHED ARTIST, ALL ARE WELCOME HERE.  I STRIVE TO CREATE A PLEASING ENVIRONMENT WHERE EVERY STUDENT IS COMFORTABLE TO CREATE AT HIS OR HER OWN PACE.  AT THE PAINTING CLASS EACH PAINTER IS FREE TO FIND HIS OWN STYLE AND LEARN ABOUT MATERIALS AND THEIR DIFFERENCES.  THIS IS A PLACE OF OILS, ACRYLICS, WATERCOLOURS, PASTELS, INKS, GRAPHITE, COLORED PENCILS, ENCAUSTIC AND MORE .... WHILE MANY OF THE CLASSES FOCUS ON THE BASIC MEDIUMS, WORKSHOPS AND CLASSES ENCOMPASS ALL THE MEDIUMS. 

 

I BELIEVE THAT PAINTING AND DRAWING ARE TWO DIFFERENT SKILLS,  BUT DRAWING CAN UNDERPIN PAINTING.  THEREFORE, WE HAVE DRAWING EXERCISES AND TALK ABOUT NEW WAYS TO THINK ABOUT DRAWING AT THE START OF EACH CLASS.   WE ALSO DISCUSS MATERIALS, PAINTING NEWS AND INSPIRATION  BEFORE WE SETTLE DOWN TO WORK.  OUR CLASSES ARE 3 HOURS IN DURATION.  THIS  ALLOWS TIME FOR  A GOOD LONG PAINTING SESSION FOR EACH STUDENT AS WELL AS TIME FOR COLLABORATIVE CONSULTATIONS AND INDIVIDUALIZED INSTRUCTION.

 

IF YOU HAVE NEVER EVEN TOUCHED A PAINTBRUSH YOU MIGHT WANT TO START OUT WITH ONE OR TWO PRIVATE OR SEMI-PRIVATE TUTORIALS. THIS WILL GIVE YOU A CHANCE FOR SOME UNDIVIDED ATTENTION AS YOU GET SOME OF THE BROAD BASICS IN THE MEDIUM OF YOUR CHOICE UNDER YOUR BELT.

 

WHILE EACH STUDENT PROVIDES HIS OWN SUPPLIES, I  SUGGEST YOU NOT MAKE PURCHASES UNTIL YOU HAVE BEEN TO AT LEAST ONE OR TWO CLASSES. I HAVE BASICS HERE IN ALL MEDIUMS FOR EARLY EXPLORATION.  FINDING ONE'S MEDIUM AND DEVELOPING ONE'S SKILL IS A VERY EXCITING AND JOYFUL JOURNEY.   AT THE PAINTING CLASS.COM, WE  HAPPILY EMBARK ON THIS JOURNEY.  i HOPE YOU WILL JOIN ME ON WEDNESDAY AFTERNOONS OR THURSDAY EVENINGS TO FIND THE ARTIST IN YOUR SOUL.
