Starting July 1st, classes will be on Mondays from 9am to 12noon and 1pm to 4pm. Classes are located at 45 Kindred Street, Stuart, FL (next door to the Stuart Art Supply Store)
My classes are relaxed in spirit well as perfect for the more serious student. "Show and tell" comes first, consisting of a short critique of a student's painting in progress or a short discussion of "the plan" for the next painting to be started. As a teacher, I find these short, critiques educational for every student with the bonus that upon competition, everyone is ready to paint with a solid direction in mind. Each class also begins with a 30-45 minute demonstration, the subject of which was decided upon by the class the previous week. Individual, very brief demos are also a part of my teaching method. Everyone paints whatever inspires them the most and I encourage my students to challenge themselves. Every class covers the basic principles of painting; composition, color, values, edges and brushwork. My goal as a teacher is to help each student maximize their progress in their own style while having a great time. Classes are limited to 12 students, but most often average 6 to 8, allowing for a maximum of teacher/ student interaction and communication.
