Rather than actual instruction, this venue offers an inexpensive opportunity to get yourself back into the routine of creating.

If you ever used to paint (draw, sculpt, knit, spin, felt, bead ...) and somehow you fell out of the habit and now you'd like to get back into it again this is perfect for you.

Choose your favorite medium, provide your own supplies and I'll help with the commitment, discipline and routine to keep you in
creative gear.

Day or evening.

Plein Aire painting can be intimidating. It takes perseverence, discipline and an unflaggingly positive attitude. Sometimes it also takes some help and instruction.

I mention this as a separate offering because even though you may not feel the need for instruction in any other area, an introduction to plein aire painting will start you on the right foot and keep you from throwing your portable easel in the nearest dumpster.

Daylight hours.

$60 per 4 hr. class

Groups of 2 or more students - $50 per person
