Drawing & Painting Lessons for Adults and Children
Individual classes for artists. Beginners welcome!
If you come to the studio we can paint together and talk. Our talks combine critique, answering questions, my giving suggestions.
Our work will be dynamic, and you will always have either a brush, pencil or stick of charcoal in your hand.
Two hour painting sessions are ideal.
Home work, can be given, and all art that you do develops the artist within and without.
