Classes are designed to follow a “student driven” tutorial format.

Each student works with subject and media of their own preference.

I supply direction where needed through demonstrations and additional exercises assigned to each student as required.

(Usually I will suggest/demonstrate an exercise, alternate project or technique which will assist in the student’s planned project)

Students range in age from 10 yrs to senior.

Sessions often mix skill levels, allowing beginners the added benefit of seeing advanced work and picking up new techniques from more than the instructor.

Some classes are specifically designed for beginners and or intermediate students.

Classes are ongoing throughout the year with the exception of long weekends and brief shutdowns during the summer.

Registration fee is $200 for ten sessions (20 hr) *Adults (19 yr and up = Gst charges): $210

Classes are limited enrollment. * A waiting list is available if you are interested in an already full session.

(Additional sessions may be scheduled if demand is sufficient).

Supply lists are determined during the initial class as I determine your expectations and skills.  The primary session is most often a basic composition and technique exercise in which I can determine your skills and preferences.  Minimal supplies for this class are:

  • drawing pad
  • pencil (3H, HB, 3B)
  • white vinyl eraser
  • sharpener

(*Some art supply stores offer a student discount. Be sure to ask about student discounts before they ring up your purchase.)
