I approach teaching with each student individually, so they can paint freely, at their own level, and paint a subject (landscape, still life, portrait, abstract, interior, etc. from life and/or from a photograph) befitting their skills and needs. This allows a class for all skill levels. I talk with each student new to painting before taking their first class to get a feel for what he or she would like to accomplish. This enables me to help guide his or her own unique creative strategies. Students who have no background in painting I sometimes recommend one or two private classes with me before jumping into a six week session. If this isn’t feasible I ask for patience particularly on the first day. (please contact the North River Art Association with your email and phone # if you don’t have any background in painting, so I can connect with you at least one week before class)
For each session there is an optional assignment or challenge for those students who would like more direction and/or to discover a new technique. Often the class works on diverse paintings with a few participating in the assignment/challenge. The class doesn’t run with a point A to point B style, although each session focuses on learning the basics of oil painting materials, foundations of color theory, color mixing, composition, and critique with individual demos catering to a style the student is trying to foster. Class can also be used to learn helpful tips and techniques to help promote your art professionally. The classes are sprinkled with beginners, intermediates, and beyond students. Each class contains a relaxed, supportive, and encouraging atmosphere enabling the student to find a distinctive pathway to oil painting. All supplies will be provided or bring your own supplies if you prefer.
12 student maximum

Note on 2021-2022 Winter/Spring Sessions
Due to COVID-19 my schedule needs to be fluid. I may need to resume offering a Drop-In Tuesday and/or Wednesday 9:00-12:00 class in my studio as long as it is safe. I may switch to Zooming classes if needed. Thank you for your patience while I navigate how to best serve my students and classes.
