All it takes is desire. I can show you how to fearlessly complete an acrylic painting even if you’ve never painted before… even if you don’t think you have the talent. I'll show you how to ‘read’ a photograph, mix colors, handle a brush with confidence and most important... discover your own style! Great class for all levels - experienced painters will get new techniques to up their game. I’ve been coaching emerging artists for ten years to enthusiastic reviews. We start with an intention to like what we do - the Bob Ross concept of 'no mistakes' and a quick intro to tools. Ten minutes in you'll have a brush full of color and a way to see separate layers in a landscape photo. I'll demonstrate each layer as we go step by step to quickly build 'abstract' puzzle pieces of color from shadows to highlights - ending with tips for final touches to make each painting uniquely yours. Every student I've taught has completed a painting that looks better than the reference photo and you'll be stunned at how good you really are. Acrylic paint is non toxic and dries quickly, so you'll walk out with that wonderful feeling of accomplishment and a surprisingly okay work of art. Many people tell me they see the world differently after taking my art class.
My 40 years as an artist & illustrator inspires a thoroughly rewarding morning. My first adult painting class was at age 6 in the 60s, BA in Art in the 70s and had a full time art biz in the SF Bay Area for 35 yrs doing fine art, murals & portraits. I painted 50 stage sets in N California theaters. As a 6 year rep for Grumbacher Paint I taught beginning classes, advanced workshops & intensive art retreats in the Sierras. Winning Humorous Speech competitions in Toastmasters suggests I'm entertaining. These high-energy acrylic lessons for beginning - advanced adults are limited to six per class. Everyone gets lots of one-on-one instruction!

I have a bright, clean, comfortable classroom for up to six students downstairs in my home in the burbs of Woodstock - just 2 miles from town center. No paint fume smell at all. A pellet stove warms the room in winter, there's a restroom next to the classroom and off street parking.
