The instructor will give individual critiques at the easel, demonstrations, and visual aides to further illustrate the concepts. Throughout the class, informal discussions will be encouraged, with the goal of providing a safe, inspirational environment, in which the student will feel challenged. It is the goal of the instructor and the class that the student develop a greater facility, ease and understanding of the tools, techniques, and procedures that will make the painting experience a life-long challenge and pleasure.

Students are encouraged to participate in the complete series to gain a full hands-on experience; however, individual classes can be attended as well. Class sizes will be kept small with social distancing in place. All participants must wear a face mask. The registration fee does not include materials. Students will receive a supply list after registering with items necessary for the course. These supplies will last for all class sessions.
