Are you ready to develop an individual style within your painting practice? Imagine working on an independent portfolio project while setting personal and professional goals with a supportive community of peers. This course is modeled after the painter’s atelier. It is lead by a professional artist, who with an established practice and exhibition history, is ready to help you on your journey to being a confident fine art painter. You will be encouraged and challenged along your own path and will be exposed to tools to guide you in your practice. Each session will include a discussion about direction and experimentation, will include some art history references and will maybe include some good humor as well! We are a mostly solvent free facility. Previous painting experience is required. You may request to paint in other media aside from oil. Painting is a life long practice and participants are welcome and encouraged to take this course again and again!
