Class Size: 5-8

Description: During this intermediate painting class, we will focus on your growth as an individual painter. Students should come to class with some idea of what they want to work on whether it be technique, subject matter, or both. In each class, students will have the opportunity to either work on personal projects or exercises provided by the instructor. We may touch on genres including still life, portraiture, landscape painting, and abstraction. Through group critiques, painting exercises, and individual endeavors, we will look to identify and bolster idiosyncrasies that make your work unique and authentic. This class is for folks with previous painting experience and an understanding of fundamentals interested in breathing new life into their paintings and developing their artistic voice. Acrylic and/or oil painters welcome. I will be demonstrating with both.

Suggested Materials: All materials are flexible and up to personal preferences. Feel free to reach out with any questions.
