2 all day workshops Feb 13 and Mar 19

5 week session coming in the Spring
Thursdays 9:30 AM to 12:30 PM
Apr 2- May 7 
Medium: Painting | Level: All levels

Working from simple still life set-ups, we will experiment with limited palettes. Students will be encouraged to find their own expressive voice while working from life. The goal will be to complete one painting per session although a couple of two-session paintings may be included. This is a great introductory class for those who have never painted with oils as well as being a great class for painters with some experience. Classes fill quickly so register early!

In addition I will resume hosting some in-studio “work on your own with critique” sessions at my studio in Manayunk. These will primarily be Monday and Thursday afternoons starting in February Please indicate your interest in the form below and I will send you more info.
