Art Classes

All drawing & painting classes feature a discussion period with demonstration, one on one guidance and individual critiques. My motto is to offer material knowledge, inspire unfettered experimentation, and to provide a joyful environment that encourages the creative process and spirit. Classes can be suited to half-day, or 1-5 day workshops.
