Studio art classes

I am offering summer classes in drawing, acrylic and oil painting, and critique. Designed to fit the needs of all levels, from beginners to intermediate to advanced; classes will meet in my Waltham studio. *

Lessons use narrative realism as the starting point and expand those lessons to include all kinds of abstraction. Emphasis will be on personal expression, and the use of the techniques and skills every artist needs to know: composition, techniques, color, textures, pattern, quality of marks, and so on. For advanced students that means seeking subtler, more challenging refinements of the same basic principles.

Critique classes will examine content and how well the use of materials is helping and hindering artists develop their ideas.

Students may bring independent projects they want to pursue. I will have assignments available meant to ignite your imagination and stimulate the skills required to get the most out of your painting experience.
