We will assist in every way we can to help you technically, conceptually, compositionally. These sessions can be very broad-based. We will work with you individually and the class can have all manner of feedback - from assignments, to conceptual discussions about your direction, to the particulars of the piece you are making.

The Drop-in Clinic is for expereinced artists engaged in creating
a body of work or working towards that goal. This class is not for beginners. It is for practicing artists looking to work and grow with a community of other artists

For anyone who wishes an introduction to the rich tradition of painting. The class is taught in oil paint because it's long open working time is more friendly for a novice painter. This class works through a series of assignments to give the student a broad introduction to the possibilities of paint as a medium.

The assigments cover color mixing, direct painting, indirect painting
(using scumbling and glazing in layers - an 'old master' technique),
painting with very thick paint (impasto), and a representational portrait.

There is no prerequisite for this class and an absolute beginner can
take and thoroughly enjoy this class. This class is also self-paced.
