Inspired by nature and the landscapes of the Catskill Mountains and the Hudson River Valley, these classes are one part basic painting lesson and one part art therapy. I create a calm environment for you to open the door to your inner creative world, while also learning basic painting techniques that work for your individual skill set. In each class I will guide you through a landscape painting step by step while presenting color, composition and drawing techniques that are simple and easy to follow. This is a class in creative confidence, and students will learn new ways of drawing and painting that resonate personally and allow you to open up and express yourself with the paint. You're not expected to create a masterpiece, you're expected to be yourself. Supplies provided, acrylic paint is typically used.
