This class will focus on learning the fundamentals of oil painting.

Private Painting and Drawing Lessons

I am also offering limited private or semi-private lessons online through Zoom. Private lessons are a wonderful way for students to get individualized attention and instruction based on their particular needs. This is a great option for beginners who want to kickstart their learning or for more advanced students who want to focus on specific skills and techniques. Each private lesson is designed around the needs of each individual student and can be scheduled on a weekly or monthly schedule. All lessons are held at the residence or studio of the student. I will provide any reference materials, books or props that are needed. Students are expected to supply their own art materials. Please visit the contact me page or email me to schedule if you are interested in private painting or drawing lessons!
