What You’ll Get

  1. Weekly zoom office hours & painting together time. Saturday from noon-1:30 (occasionally on a weekday evening if there’s a scheduling conflict). Join by zoom to ask any art questions, and paint together.

    These are informal, unstructured get-togethers. Feel free to stop in for a few minutes or stay the whole time. This time is for you. 

    If you have questions, bring them. If you would like any refreshers on the workshop content, come ask. If you’d like to paint together, bring the painting you are working on and let’s paint together. If you want to paint but are not currently working on a painting, I’ll have some source material available (not a paint-along, but shared studio time). Or just come visit. 
     
  2. Anytime access to recordings of the lessons.
     
  3. Anytime access to 6 full-length painting demonstration videos.
     
  4. You can email me with questions about the lessons or to request critiques or feedback.

What students say about this small group workshop

“Your Zoom classes have been making an online painting class feel very much like a live classroom experience. I have enjoyed painting with you and I feel like I’m learning more all the time! Thank you!” 

K. Clark

“I really love the classes. You’re a great teacher and you make it fun!”

Hattie

“I can’t tell you how excited I am to find you and finally make a decision to paint again. I have been in my oil paint four days in a row.  Saturday was so fun. I loved painting with a limited palette. That was an eye opener. […]  I do believe with some guidance I can achieve what my mind envisions.

Sincerely,  Anne Marie”

“I have enjoyed your online lessons….. You are a very talented artist and I’ve enjoyed  ‘meeting’ you!”
