Tuesday Morning Classes (six week session)

January 24  – February 28
March 7 - April 11
9AM – 12PM

Cost: 175$ USD

The goal of this this six-week session class is to  support your art and to offer feedback that benefits your creative decision making.  I will share my knowledge to help you with technique, composition and subjective ideas. We will meet for three hours and dedicate the first 30-45 minutes to an in-depth critique before you start working and then end with sharing ideas about each others’ work.  The main idea is to give feedback that is helpful to you and  strengthens  your own practice. I would encourage you to work on your own during the week and then be ready to discuss the work in class. I will be available  via email prior to this class session to discuss ideas/ projects you would like to work on, so you will be ready to jump right in in the beginning of the six week session. 
You can work with acrylics or oils. Please bring your own canvases, boards or panels that you would you would like to use. Again, discuss with me prior to class what materials and surfaces you would like to use.
