Private Lessons: This format is geared for an independent student/artist seeking to improve their proficiency or concentrate on a particular painting skill e. g. composition, color, getting loose, getting tighter, realism, values, subject matter, etc. Lessons are interactive with periodic instruction, coaching, discussion, observation, and demonstration of technique. These sessions are great for students who’s schedule doesn’t allow for classes, want one on one instruction, or are working on their portfolios. They’re also used for the beginner to get more individual attention and/or to learn some semantics before jumping into a class.
Semi-Private Lessons: This format offers an opportunity for beginners, intermediates, and beyond to arrange their own grouping of two, three, or four while still providing individual attention. It allows the group to have input on what to work on. e.g. composition, color, getting loose, getting tighter, realism, values, subject matter, learning a particular skill, simply having fun with paint, etc. We can work together on ideas and themes and/or I can provide a direction for the class. This is a wonderful way to hang out with friends while either discovering a new talent, getting back to a past passion, or progressing skills.

Drop-In Summer Oil Painting Class for the Beginner, Intermediate, and Beyond (ages 15 to adults)
Drop-In classes works like this…
You can lock in your dates ahead of time or let me know the Monday before class if you’re going to make it (this ensures the class won’t be over crowded and on the other spectrum, that it will run, or if you wake up in the mood to paint you can email or call me between 7:30 and 8:00 a.m. to see if the class will be held (as I need a certain number to run the class) and to be sure there’s room. Bring in whatever it is you’d like to paint. e.g. items for a still life, photo, or set up to do an interior, paint the ocean view, etc. If you can’t decide bring in a couple of options and we can talk about the possibilities! This is a very casual and encouraging class with each student working on their own unique painting. All supplies will be provided. Feel free to bring your own supplies if you prefer. If you have never painted before please call me ahead of time, so we can chat how I can best guide you. 781-837-7982
