Class information

Art Classes are designed for adults, beginner through advanced. Using a step by step process, students learn the fundamentals of drawing, painting, design/composition, perspective, working with color and more. Students also learn how to add depth, contrast, dimension and power to their work.

Lessons are both fun and informative. They are tailored to meet the needs of the individual student according to their level of knowledge and experience.

Students are encouraged to try their hand at several mediums.
I offer instruction in Pencil. Charcoal. Colored Pencil, Pastel, Oils, Acrylics, Scratchboard, Pyrography, Pen and Ink,  Water Color and mixed media. 

Subject matter is based on each students area of interest including, but not limited to landscape, wildlife, still life, abstract, portraits and floral. Each year students are given the unique opportunity to show their work in an Emerging Artists showcase. This annual show is open to the public and receives quite a bit of publicity.
