I have extensive art teaching experience (more than 35 years), great tutoring skills and remarkable painting and drawing skills (45+ years). I have Master’s degree in Arts, Education and Psychology.

ART CLASSES provide with lots of insight and are a learning experience. We are exploring all aspects from subject, composition, colors, textures to secrets of color mixing, values and their importance. You will enjoy lots of attention and very individualized instruction whether you are an absolute beginner or somebody who has been painting before. Our ART CLASSES are not crowded: 5 to 8 students at a time.

PAINTING WORKSHOPS are marked specially: during workshop, we are painting one particular image start to finish. WORKSHOP deals with specific set of approach and explores specific subject, theme, composition, colors or effects.

After June 8, ALL classes and all workshops WILL REQUIRE TO HAVE YOUR OWN MATERIALS because it is a huge plus.

Outdoor drawing and sketching offers a huge advantage over painting from photographs.

Sketching is a skill that every potential artist should have.

Perspective and atmospheric perspective are necessary for creation of any landscape painting.  We will explore dimension and simple one point perspective in order to create multi-dimensional paintings and watercolors with roads, buildings, fences, or street scenes. Students sometimes avoid painting buildings or man-made structures because they are not sure how to implement them onto paper or canvas. Sketching and drawing such composition elements allows using them with confidence in a painting.
